I am in need a major help here. I started the job 1 year ago and will be getting married 4.5 hours away (Require overnight stay). I work with about 12 people on my team. I am considering only inviting my mentor and manager. I really have 3 bosses but travel with my manager and talk to him daily. There are other people on our small team that barely talk to me so I think it would be very weird for me to invite them to my out of town wedding and 5 ladies that I talk to all the time but I wouldn’t expect to spend money traveling. I don’t want to offend anyone. Is it ok to just invite the two and leave eveyone else out OR do I invite evreyone? The only thing with inviting everyone is I do not want anyone to think they were invited just for a gift… Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

One of my co workers had an out of town wedding and she asked for our addresses, telling us she would be more than happy to send an invitation if we though we’d make it.
Another just invited everyone, assuming that most would not attend. We all got together and got a group gift and did not attend.
As for me, when I had my wedding, I only invited the co-workers I had done things with outside of work hours (where not everyone we worked with was invited). I also requested that they not do a work shower for me and only talked about my wedding to the ones who I knew I’d invited (unless specifically asked). I don’t think anyone was offended.

Only invite the co-workers who you are close with. It’s silly to invite people you don’t know simply because they work with you. They probably wouldn’t even want to go anyways! 🙂
