    We’re inviting FI’s boss, not expecting him to come. Or if he does, just for the ceremony.

    I did. At the time, I worked in an office with my boss and her husband, and had for 5 years. They don’t have kids, and we got pretty close. So it was a given they would be invited, and they were definitely going to come, but it so happened that their nephew’s wedding was the same day, so they had to go to his

    A year ago when I had a different position at the agency and with a different boss, I would have said “no”.

    However, the boss I have now, I work more closely with her, so I felt it was the polite thing to do.

    I plan on inviting my boss, but that’s because we are close.  He’s been so supportiive of me in everything I do.  he’s always willing to give advice, def one of my biggest supporters.

    I did, along with everyone else in the office (though I only expected a few people to go). I don’t see my boss as a ‘friend’ but more of a friendly mentor.  He couldn’t make it to our destination wedding, but he bought us gifts from the registry. Also, he treated the entire office, my husband and I to lunch to celebrate our impending marriage the week before the wedding. I think he was flattered that we invited him and his family.

    I invited my boss. I was kind of scared because he has this weird sense of humor. I asked for his address and he was like.. of course I want an invite! 🙂 I only work with like 10 other people, so I see and talk to him everyday. There would be no reason for me not to invite him.

    we’re inviting Kingy’s boss and former boss (he just transferred within the company).. I think his current boss will come, I doubt his former boss will travel from Australia for our wedding. He really likes both of them, we’re not close but I’ve had them over for dinner and stuff
