I started a new job 3 months ago in a small office. I work daily alongside three other people, and I really like them. They’re around my age, we get along, they seem like fun people and I’d like to get to know them better.
Obviously we’re nowhere near “wedding invite” close. My wedding is next meaning only 8 months away. Even if we dont become super best friends outside of work, would it be weird to invite them? By that point I’ll have been working with them for 11 months.
I don’t want to be a creepy weirdo though. I’m assuming we won’t be close, but we’ll have worked together 11 months, we have added each other on FB etc. I’m going to see where the relationships go, but I know this isn’t really enough time to build solid friendships with these people. Still I think I like them a lot, hopefully will know them better by then and may want to include them.

Lol! I think you are fine…its seems like plenty of time to get to know each other and not be weird for you to invite them. I think it would be creepy if you were having a really intimate wedding with close friends and family only and you invite them after knowing them for a month or two..but eleven months? Naw, not creepy.

@MrsCreeToBe: invite the ones that you have that good feeling about. The coworkers you hang out with regularly or would like to hang out with more, that you really feel are or could be friends with outside of work. No it’s not creepy!

Your wedding is still 8 months away? Well than you won’t be sending invites for many more months still, and you have time to see if you do continue to hit it off with this coworkers and gain stronger friendships. It should be easier to judge then!
I have a few people who have come into my life more recently who I am considering inviting – I didn’t send them save the dates just in case we drifted apart, but if we hang out more in the coming months, then I may shoot them an invite.

One of my now dearest friends invited me to her wedding after only really having maybe 10 conversations at work. I think she wanted to be my friend and that was her way of saying ” hey I like you!” now we talk everyday and hang out all the time outside of work.
If she didn’t do that, I don’t think a friendship would have developed The way it did.

Okay good! I know I’m probably (definitely) overthinking it, was just curious 🙂
