I think this happens with any job. It is just harder for teachers because there are the co-workers in your building and other buildings that you may want to invite. I am a teacher and have worked at the high school and middle school. I am going to invite some from each school. I also have paraprofessionals in my room that I will invite. It will come down to budget and what we can afford. If you can afford to invite the extra people, do it. If you can’t, then you will be able to show them pictures.

I will be inviting a couple of close friends on staff and my principals to the wedding (plus spouses), and everyone else will be invited to the dance afterwards.

I invited some paraprofessionals and other teachers that I’m very close to. I did not invite any administration.

I am not inviting any of my coworkers because my wedding will be small and there are still some relatives that we have not invited. That said, one of the teachers in my grade level got married and invited her close school friends (people she interacts with outside of work) and her grade level team. Others have invited only their close school friends. I don’t think you have to invite any co-worker or administrator if you are not close. I don’t think most people would be offended.

I only invited our admin team and people that I am friends with outside of work (spouses included).  I am sure there were some people that may have been a bit offended, but there was no way I was going to invite the whole staff, or even my entire grade level…also I was switching grade levels.  I think most people totally undstand…just one or two that may not have.  Also, I tried not to talk about the wedding too much at work…only when people asked me questions about it.  There was another girl at work who got married the week before me and she only invited the admin team.

my sister is a teacher and for her wedding she only invited a few of the teachers that she was close to. i don’t think she stressed about it. but then again she hadn’t been at the school for years or anything so maybe she didn’t feel obligated in any way.
