- Wedding: July 2009
I have a small dilema. I work at a company of 60 employees and I manage 15 of them. They all know I am getting married and are very excited for me. I have a FEELING that all my employees, in addition to a few managers and employees from other departments, are expecting an invite, which I am not prepared to do (20 peeps is a big addition to an already out of control guest list).
I would like to invite one or two of my employees–they’ve been at the company since the begining and I have a deeper connection with them than I do the others. But that would show favortism. So instead, I’m thinking of doing the following:
I am for sure inviting the president of the company.
I’m pretty sure I’ll invite 2 other managers that I am friendly with (no dates, though). This leaves 3 uninvited managers…I’m afraid they’ll be hurt that they aren’t invited, which will lead to some tension at the office. Not sure what to do about that or how to get around the awkwardness.
I’m pretty sure I’ll invite one or two guys that my FI has gotten close to over the years (I’m not their manager).
As for the others, I was considering inviting them to the sweet table at the end of the meal (i.e. dessert, drinks and dancing). Not sure how well that’ll be received, though.
What do you gals think of the plan? Any other suggestions or recommendations?
Also, would it be rude to invite the people who are only invited to the post-dinner reception to the Shower and/or bachelorette party?
