ok so I have to say you all have so many great ideas! I have a question that I need some advice on….
I worked at a small small office for a few years (recently got a new job). A few of the people I worked with I became close to, some I am not so close to and one girl started being kind of a, well just not nice to me after we got engaged. ( we all go the feeling it was some type of jealousy) I have gotten a new full time job but will work at the old one from time to time, so I am still conected to them. Here is my question. Do I have to invite all 9 of them to my wedding? is it ok to leave one or two or 3 of the people i worked with off the list?? I really dont want to invite the girl that has been unfriendly with me, but Im not sure if its really ok to leave one person out, but maybe if i do invie her she wont show up then again maybe she will?? Am I being petty? please help? we are about to send out our save the date letters. maybe I can leave her off the save the date list but go ahead and send her the formal invite??
We are also really trying to keep the guest list as shot as possible which is why i was thinking about cutting 2 or 3 of them. We are trying to keep it to 75people

I know some will disagree with me, but I am of the opinion that it’s your wedding-do what you want!

I think it is perfectly fine to invite people you want to have at your wedding to your wedding, and to not invite the people you don’t want there.

I would just invite the two or three you are close to and forget the rest.

If you don’t work there anymore, I don’t see why you need to invite any of them if you are trying to keep the guest list that low. But of course if you want them there, you should invite them. I think it is fine if you don’t invite them all because you don’t work there anymore so it wouldn’t be awkward.

Invite who you want! It’s your day, so do what you feel comfortable with 🙂

I do still work there from time to time and Im still conected to the office, thats why i was having a hard time figuring out what to do and if it was ok to leave some people out. I have told my friends in the past “its your day you should do what you want” im now finding it easier said then done, lol anyway im glad you guys agree, now I dont feel so bad. Thank You!

It is absolutely okay to leave some people out. My situation is slightly different from yours because yours is a workplace, but I had a small group of friends in school, and one of them will not be invited to the wedding. She was not supportive of me when fiancee and I were first starting to date (not bc of any reservations about him, but because I wasn’t around as much) and has generally been very negative. I don’t want any negativity at my wedding!
