Just tell them your thoughts? Explain to them that you aren’t inviting coworkers, you are inviting friends–they should know that they don’t really say more than two words to you so I don’t know what their problem is…I wouldn’t expect a wedding invitation from someone I’m not good friends with.

I dunno, I would definitely be honest with them. If they were getting married do you think they’d invite you? By the sound of it, I would say no–its really hard to keep that guest list down. Sounds like they are just being catty. : Good luck!

I’d just leave it be.  They feel left out, and are complaining about it.  Let them complain.  If they really thought about it, they’d understand that they aren’t close and just because you work with someone doesn’t mean you are automatically invited to their wedding.

If someone mentions it to you directly, you can explain yourself.  But, for now – just let it go.

I was having the same problem.. with people saying they are just going to crash the party… or asking me on FB or thru E-mail  ” Im invited right?” 

I just said you have to understand we are on a budget so not everyone is going to get invited. I dont have $40 to feed the world… this $40 doesn’t even include the alcohol im providing.. I have had one ask if she can come after dinner just for the dance part… I told her my venue wouldn’t allow that… Like serious????

I would probably just ignore it unless they asked you face to face.  You don’t owe anyone an explanation as to why they’re not invited.

Haha, I had a coworker that I’ve only been working with for 4 months-ish tell me that if she wasn’t invited she was going to come crash the wedding!  In my head I was like, WTF I don’t even know your last name?!

I wouldn’t say anything at all.. Not your problem.  It’s your wedding and you decide who you want there and don’t..end of story. 🙂
