Noooope. But I’ve never been close with a boss. To me, if I wasn’t hanging out with them outside of work, I probably wouldn’t invite them. I did invite several co workers, but they were people I spend time with outside of work. marybee22 :

No matter how many relationship stories you share, make no mistake, it’s still a boss, not a friend. I would not invite anyone from the workplace with whom you don’t socialize outside of it. There’s a power imbalance in this case on top of that.  It has nothing to do with fear of acting in an embarrassing way and everything to do with professional boundaries.  It’s a wedding not a club scene.

marybee22 :  To be honest, I did consider it, but looking back now, I don’t know why. She wouldn’t have wanted to come, and it would have been awkward.

I eloped & am having a reception. I did not invite anyone from my work because I’m not close to anyone and didn’t want to deal with the drama of people getting their feelings hurt because they weren’t invited. My husband on the other hand invited one of his bosses and tons of his coworkers. Totally up to you and your comfort level!

I invited a few coworkers because we are friends outside of work.  My moh was my coworker, who is also my best friend.   She has since left the job and we are still best friends and hang out several times a month.  I’m not friends with my boss though and so did not invite him.

No, I didn’t invite anyone from work. Although I considered inviting two colleagues. I prefer to keep work and social separate, although they are nice people.

I seem to be in a minority though; there have been a lot of weddings for work people in recent years and all I know about invited at least one work colleague.
