A supervisor should have no expectation of receiving a wedding invitation unless you are close friends. Short answer? No.

Definitely not! We based our coworker invites on whether or not we hung out outside of work. I invited an old boss of mine because we are close friends, but did NOT invite my current boss because we were not close, and the last thing I wanted on my wedding day was to feel uncomfortable because of who I invited.

I would say no. She’s your boss, not your coworker or friend. Or even, a friendly coworker, if she’s yelling at you that often. So nope. If she congratulates you or gives you a gift graciously say “thank you it was lovely” and leave it at that.

No, not necessary. My fiance’s boss actually asked him to not bother sending him an invitation, haha!

No, I heard proper etiquette was if you hang out w/co-workers outside of work then you should invite, but if you don’t.  Then you don’t have to feel presured to do so.  Now if you feel close to them and you want to then do so.  I know my boyfriend wants to invite his boss.  But I’m NOT inviting mine!

No you don’t have to invite your boss, but keep in mind that if you’re inviting all of the people around him/her then she will most likely feel offended or uncomfortable (regardless of whether or not she/he wants to attend in the first place).

If I were you, I would send a courtesy invite, especially if you think she/he is the type to hold grudges. Hopefully your boss won’t come!

you don’t have to invite the boss.  If it’s a small work group, I’d probably tell the ones who are coming not to talk about it outright in front of the boss though
