    I don’t think it would look gift grabby, although I’m not inviting any co-workers because i like to keep my work life and my personal life separate.  But you already have 3 co-workers coming, so you can easily add her and they can sit together.

    I don’t think it looks grabby at all considering all that you do at work together. I would, however, ensure that she keeps it on the DL since you aren’t inviting most of the other colleagues (even if you aren’t that close to them).

    this happened to me. I started a new job and a co-worker and I just knew right away that we got along. She happened to be getting married in a few months on and she just tacked me onto the list. I was so excited and happy to be invited I felt very flattered.

    do it!!

    the #1 thing i hate most about this site (really the only thing) is all the worry about “gift grabby-ness”!!! if it’s within your budget and you 2 are close enough that you would want her there, then why wouldnt you invite her?? i highly doubt that she would ever think “oh, she must want me to come to buy her a gift.” normal people do not think that way, so unless she is the world’s most miserable human being… which she cant be if you and she are friends…. go for it! (just make sure you seat her with your other coworkers!)

    For my coworkers, I just hand delivered their invitations. Our work directory doesn’t have people’s addresses and I felt weird asking. haha. It was kind of fun hand delivering it because I got to see their reactions and many were genuinely surprised, honored and very very enthusiastic. Plus, this gave them an opportunity to inquire who else is invited or for me to bring it up.
