Well my invitations went out 4 1/2 weeks ago. I invited 4 co-workers and their guest. Only 2 of the co-workers could attend. I have room to invite 2 more co-workers n their spouse, do you guys think it is to late to invite the other 2? I would do it immediately like tomorrow.
I’m afraid of them knowing that they are on the B-list. Especially since one of the co-workers that is coming mentioned the wedding in front of one of the co-workers I did not invite but now want to. These co-worers are friendly but not really friends so it is not like I can explain anything to them. They are the other 2 managers in my dept.
I just do not want things to be awkward or make anyone feel weird.

Hmm I think it will be awkward either way. We invited people last minute saying hey we have some free food, wanna come?

The wedding is the 30th which is 3.5 weeks away so ya it would probably be awkward );

Your co-workers will obviously know that they were not on your original invite list; however, if you really want to invite them, you could always deliver the invitation in person and say something like, “I know that it’s last minute, but we ended up being able to expand our guest list and FI and I would be honored if you could attend”. They’ll either think it’s crappy that they weren’t on your original list or they’ll think it’s awesome that you’re including them, but I don’t think it hurts to ask.

I dont think there is anything wrong with inviting more people. Yes they will know they are on the B list but you’re not being rude to invite them and if they had a wedding before then they will understand. You can had deliver their invitation. They can always decline.

@Miss Root:Thanks! I really like the way you put it and think I’m going to do it this way.
