Let them know it’s coming up fast and that you can’t wait to enjoy an intimate wedding with your family.  That should get the point across.  It’s smart that you try to avoid wedding planning and wedding talk at work.

I think you’re overthinking this. They’re probably asking partially to be polite/make conversation rather than genuine interest.

Like PP said, slip it into conversation how you’re having a very small wedding.

One of my coworkers got married like a year ago, and I’d talk to her about the wedding, but I never expected to be invited, and didn’t give it a second thought when I wasn’t. Another coworker got married more recently.. I didn’t even know she got married until we went for dinner one day months after lol.

I find weddings to be very intimate occasions and honestly I’d feel a bit awkward being invited to a coworker’s wedding unless I was super close with the person. Out of the office I’ve worked at for 5 years, I’d probably be ok with going to 2 peoples’ weddings.

@batbrain:  I would use their questions as an opportunity to convey the intimate nature of your wedding so they won’t be surprised when they aren’t invited. And I agree with what others have said, they are probably just trying to be polite and make conversation by asking about what’s going on in your life.
