i would just invite the 12 that you’re close to. routing an invite through the office or posting in the breakroom isn’t a good idea imo. if you’re not comfortable enough to send them an invite at home, how are you comfortable enough having them at your wedding?

people understand weddings have budgets and space restraints. i doubt anyone expects the entire office to be invited.

It depends on the organization of these people? Do they work in the same department at the same level? Do you work closely with them or just know them? 

Be careful because this is office politics and you dont want to make things unnecssarily hard on you in the future

i would invite just the 12 and basically just tell them that not everyone in the office is invited so please don’t talk about it in the office.

Anyone you invite should have an invitation mailed to them.  Passing around one invitation for the office is TACKY.

I read something in a magazine or somewhere that said if u wouldn’t normally buy them lunch then u shouldn’t pay for their meal at ur wedding.

this is kinda the way i’m having to look at the whole work invite thing.

one of my coworkers posted an invite and a blank piece of paper in the breakroom for coworkes to write down their name if they would be attending. about 30 people signed up and maybe 7 showed up.  I felt bad for the girl esp if she planned food for those that did not attend. unless I am close to the coworker, i will not be inviting them to the wedding.

I would send invitations to the home of the 12 I wanted to attend.

There are not too many people who honestly think everyone they work with should invite them to their wedding.

Reasonable people know we are all working within a budget of some sort.

Unreasonable people will complain or act out no matter what you do.
