@isabelle_86:  if i had to do my guest list all over again, i would keep my co-workers off the list. it opens up a can of worms. “oh how come she got invited and i didnt?” etc

don’t feel obligated to invite them. if you don’t hang out with your co-workers outside of work-than don’t invite them.

I would not invite any of my coworkers. I wouldn’t even consider it.

I ended up only inviting my direct manager and then her manager.  Coworkers just made things complicated, especially with a large number of them.

We only invited our bosses to our wedding. Of course my boss did our pics. There were people I could have invited but didn’t want people getting upset.

I only invited the few that I feel the closest to.  Some I even hang out with outside of work.  FI also invited a few of his coworkers.  

There’s only been one instance of drama out of it.  A coworker who I am not that close to, nor do I particularly like, kept making comments eluding to him coming to my wedding.  Things like “I can’t wait to eat the food”, or “what day is your wedding on? I don’t want to miss it!”  After a few of these awkward comments, I finally said, “well, unfortunately we are very limited on space and we had to shorten our guest list to accomodate so we can’t invite everyone that we would like to.”

He took the hint, and then quit talking to me all together, and started ignoring me.  I heard he told another coworker that “I had an attitude about him joking about him coming to my wedding.”  He wasn’t joking, he’s just mad I didn’t invite him…

Everyone else has been pretty understanding that I simply can not invite the whole company to my wedding.

I’m did not invite coworkers mostly because I have two jobs and space limitations, plus I started them after we had already set our list. Its fine, people totally understood.
