Same situation, I’m getting married 1 hr plane ride and 8hrs drive away. But I’m actually inviting everyone that I would have invite had the wedding been local. I think it’s their choice if they want to come. 🙂

I would say invite both, so you don’t favor one over the other.  It’s their choice if they want to come or not.  I think since you work with them on a daily basis it won’t appear gift grabby or anything.

Being invited doesn’t mean they have to come.  You could even make sure to mention that you would be very happy if they could come to celebrate with you, but you understand that it is a long distance.  That is what i’m doing with my bosses.

I think you have a greater risk of them being offended for NOT inviting them then you do of them thinking you’re deliberately trying to get gifts!  It seems absolutely reasonable for you to invite them 🙂

Definitely invite them both. Doesn’t make you look gift grabby at all, it is quite sweet.

Yeah, unfortuantely, when it comes to coworkers and bosses and stuff, it’s an either all or nothing deal. If it were me, I wouldn’t invite either of them, and if they ask, I would just say, “Gosh, we really wanted to invite so many other people, but we’ve decided for a variety of reasons to make it very close family friends and family only.”

But it really sounds like you want to invite R, which means you’ll have to invite A. And in all honesty, I would be utterly shocked if A came. And if R comes, well that seems like it’s fine with you 🙂
