Just don’t invite them. No need to explain to them why, especially if they don’t bring it up. it’s a wedding and they aren’t close to you, I’m pretty sure they’ll understand. Do what you gotta do, I know how hard it is. I’ve posted a “to invite or not to invite the coworker” posts. In the end I went with my gut and invited only the people I know and I am friends with. Go with your gut and it will all be ok. 🙂

I think many brides spend way too much time and energy worrying about what will happen if they don’t invite co-workers.

 Do you seriously think you should be invited to the weddings of all your co-workers? Of course not.

Adults should be able to understand that work relationships are different than social rellationships.

I think whether to invite coworkers is blown out of proportion sometimes.  Personally, I don’t really want to attend the wedding of someone I’m not close with and have to spend $150 on a gift.  I’d rather just attend the lunch hour “shower” and throw my ten bucks in the group gift.

Maybe I’m a grinch though 🙂

These replies worked well for me too. I work at a dog boarding kennel where there are 8 employees (I make 9). I would love to invite everyone but… Someone has to be at the kennel working when I have my wedding. Derp!

But I have to remember…. Work does not equal life.
