My Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law are giving me a bridal shower and asked if I wanted to invite my co-workers. I work at a doctors office. I have been here since December. It’s a small office (7people) and we often talk about wedding stuff. I’m not sure if I should invite them or not. Any ideas?

Are they invited to the wedding?

Are they invited to your wedding?
My shower hostesses invited my co-workers to my shower but I’ve been working with them for 4+ years and we’re also friends. If I had only been at my job for a few months, I probably wouldn’t have extended an invite to my shower.

Only if they are invited to the wedding.
It’s okay to have a workplace shower (at work, only includes co-workers) without inviting co-workers to the wedding, but that is the only exception to the rule that shower guests must be a subset of the wedding guests.

They should only be invited to the shower if they are invited to the wedding.

Ditto to the comments re: are they invited to the wedding.
For reference, my Fiance and I only invited coworkers who we spend time with outside of the office to our wedding.

I’ve invited my ex-coworkers (I quit in March but we’ve kept in contact and were all pretty close) to the wedding and therefore am inviting them to the shower.
Ditto to other comments, only invite them to the shower if they are invited to the wedding.

@sailor: I agree, usually there is a seperate wedding-work-shower
