so the owner of where i work has been asking me when i’m getting married and that it’s coming up. he mentioned couple months back that he couldn’t wait… should i invite him and his wife? everyone else in the office who has gotten married has invited him! this is a really tough situation for me. apparently he gives a really nice gift… but so do half the people invited. we’ve gotten already $1200 from 2 people. anyway, i feel like if i don’t invite him, i won’t be on his good side. and if we invite him, that’s another $280 that we are spending on him and his wife.
our wedding is only friends and family. 75 people. only inviting 2 people from work, maybe 3.

Don’t just invite him because of the way he’s talking or what others have done. But don’t disclude him just because of the money (as it does sound like his present will probably cover the cost).
We did invite our bosses, and I was very happy to have them at our wedding.

Only invite them if you want to! If you don’t have room for them then mention in conversation that it is a “very small wedding”… to drop hints that he might not make the final guest list. If you do invite them, you might get a generous gift which will defray or maybe even completely cover the extra cost. Good Luck!

I personally feel that if you are inviting anyone from work you should invite your boss unless he’s a complete a$$.
It just sounds like job suicide to me to invite some from work but not your boss that person that pays your paycheck and ultimately decides if you get a raise, promotion, etc.
I def invited my boss because I actually wanted to, he’s a great person and a amazing boss so it was no question for me to invite him.

well 2 of the people i invited from work are actually my friends before work. i get what you’re saying though. and another girl is getting married in september, and i’m sure she will invite him. AH!

I would invite them. It sounds like he is happy for you and wants to help you celebrate! And if everyone else has invited him, I would follow suit, personally.

Ok, I would invite him if you could. If someone you really want to invite can’t go because you invited him than I wouldn’t.
He sounds really excited about it so yes, if it was possible, I would invite him. But don’t do it just for the gift. Do it because you like the guy and want him to be there.

I would invite him. Usually I would say don’t invite someone just because they expect it, but for a boss its a little different.
If you don’t invite him, he may, even if unintentional, be upset about it & he’s the one who signs your checks & you go thru him to get time off. Plus, he sounds genuinely happy for you :).
If its a boss you like, at a company you want to stay with, than I’d invite him.
