We’re finalizing our list for our invites going out in a few weeks and I was contemplating co-workers. Is it standard procedure to invite your boss and a handful of co-workers to the wedding? I don’t really see any of them outside of work, but I just didn’t know how common it was to invite them. I would hope they wouldn’t feel slighted if I didn’t.

I’ve only invited those co-workers that are my friends (i.e., that I hang out with outside of work). No one else (including my boss) received an invite. Also, my colleagues at work don’t expect to get invited. Frankly, if you don’t even invite them out for a drink or over to your house, why would you invite them to your wedding? Most people are reasonable and should understand and should not have these expectations.

I don’t think coworkers expect to get invited.
However, people always ask me about planning at work and everyone is very supportive, so I decided to invite just my department. About half the group decided to come and half declined. My fiance works for a company that is 4 people, including him, and none of them are coming to the wedding, but we invited all of them. (However, we got some amazingly generous and unexpected gifts from his boss! I think he appreciated the invite but either had other plans or didn’t feel comfortable.)
If you decide to invite coworkers, I think they will appreciate the inclusion but will only come if they really want to and feel comfortable.
Make sure you feel comfortable with how you decide to include some and exlude others.
