Honestly? If you’re leaving the job and are not planning to see them again… don’t invite them. I wouldn’t. I don’t care what the accepted ettiquette is. Especially if it’s people you don’t even like or have no social connections to outside of work.

If you gave someone a save the date, I think you should invite them.  I get where you’re coming from, but I think it would be pretty cold not to.  But if you’re totally fine burning bridges then you know, invite whoever you want!

I think that if you sent out save the dates you have to invite them…and hope they wont come 😉

IMO if you sent a save-the-date you should follow up with an invitation.  It would be rude not to.  However if you don’t plan to see your boss again, then I guess you won’t care if you’re rude to her!

I am just thinking that since they are professional acquaintances it would probably be better not to offend them.  You seriously never know when you may run into one of these people again and need a recommendation or something like that.  I just think it’s good not to burn bridges with people you know professionally, even if you think now that you’ll never see them again.  You just never know.

I think that since the situation has changed, it’s acceptable (and expected) to not send an invite.

I would send them the invite, especially to your boss.  Even though you are quitting, you might need her recommendation to get a job later and you don’t want to burn that bridge.

Etiquette-wise, if you sent them a save-the-date, you send them an invitation.

I would say for the other people (besides your boss) that you invited, yes, you ought to invite them since they already recieived an STD….(although the little devil on my left shoulder is screaming that its the perfect opportunity to trim your budget!!!!)

Screw your boss. If you are leaving your job (because it sounds like your boss is creating an issue serious enough at work for you to want to leave) I would say you have no obligation to invite your boss.
