Invite the people you want.

Personally I would invite only people who I am close to.

Plus an invitation is one thing. Whether the invitees can get the time off is between them and the boss.

You should invite the ones you are close to. I work in a hospital setting so my entire department will get a sign-up sheet (both shifts). But I will only invite co-workers, no plus 1’s because depending on how many try to come I don’t want to double that number by allowing their plus 1’s to come. A co-worker of mine ran into this problem recently and her wedding is this month. She didn’t know how many people to invite. So about a week ago she put up a sign-up sheet but only a few of us have signed it. However, I think I heard that her seats are limited anyways because of cost. So if you do put up a sign-up sheet or give invites make sure you do it well in advance…unless in reality you don’t want many people to come to it but are just trying to be nice.

Ahhh the age old question.

Here’s my thoughts on the matter, since you work at a place with shifts where people would need to request off – tell your work BFFs first, so they can request off, then invite everyone. Obviously they can’t ALL go, but the people who request off first (aka the ones you like!) will get to go. Boom!

FI’s original plan (he was a retail manager) was to invite all of his assistant managers (four of them), but knowing only two could go (and he makes the schedule, so that’d be easy to control).

I work in an office, and I was just going to suck it up and invite everyone in my office (my department is about 15 people), plus those who aren’t in my department that I’m close to.


Well, all that went to crap when FI got a promotion that requires us moving halfway across country, so now I get to invite my (former) coworkers that I like (and none of the ones I don’t!) and FI will do the same.

Just invite the ones you like and don’t invite the ones you feel obligated to invite. I ended up inviting all of my cohort/coworkers in my Ph.D. program pretty much under the “well i can’t invite X and not get Y upest, etc.” In the end all but one (one i wanted to come) said they couldn’t come. It worked out for me but it could have been bad-I would never want to worry about who was coming if I didn’t reallly want them there.
