FI works for a very small company, he haa two coworkers, and two bosses. One boss he either works with or sees nearly every day. The other boss comes in once a month or so. They are brothers, so if we invite them, we will be inviting both. We will not be inviting the two coworkers, due to them needing to work that day since FI won’t be there. I think he should invite his bosses, as it’s a small company that he has worked at for severeal years. He doesnt think we should invite them, not for a specific reason, he just doesn’t think we need to. Would you invite them if you were in this position?

We invited all our co-workers and their significant others (8 co-workers for me, 4 for DH). We both work in small office environments where we interact with every single person every day, all day. I probably would have felt it necessary to at least invite the bosses if we couldn’t fit everyone. If I were you, I’d let the size of my wedding dictate the situation. Over 50 ppl you should probably invite them. Under 50, you can get away with calling it extremely intimate and family-only.

sariibear: I think I’d leave it up to him unless it’s some completely ignorant concept of his. If he doesn’t want his boss(es) there, I’d say ok! Probably not worth too much time thinking about it if you’re unsure.
For me, I am planning to invite my boss and some senior leadership. They are close coworkers. However, the invites have not been sent yet so anything could change. If for nothing else, it’s a respect thing on my end. They don’t have to come but……. gosh, I’m really all over the place. I’m not sure if I want people I work with, who are not my friends, to be at my wedding. Sheesh. Maybe that’s how your guy feels too.

I also think you would want to leave it up to your FI. My FI is pretty adamant about not inviting any coworkers just for the sake of it being awkward. He most definitely hasn’t mentioned inviting his bosses though!

- Wedding: August 2008 - Toronto, ON
I invited my boss and his wife and they were happy with the invite and gave us a nice toaster oven and a few other goodies! I also invited a few co-workers because I considered them friends as we hung out outside of work! It is really up to you and you FI though.
