    Assuming it’s in your budget, I would definitely invite the work friends you invited to your engagement party. The situation with the sisters is a little trickier. Personally, I would probably invite all three just because I’m a horrible people pleaser and never want to hurt someone’s feelings. But if you never really see her outside of work, or talk to her besides small talk, then I wouldn’t think it’s rude of you to not invite her.

    @AbeeCee123:  re: B,definitely invite all 3 sisters. It would be hurtful to be the only uninvited one as everyone works together! I bet the other 2 wouldn’t even go without the 3rd.

    Regarding A: I probably wouldn’t invite the ones who have moved on to other jobs if I hadn’t seen them in months and are not planning on contacting them. However I would invite them if you want to continue the relationship or its likely you will run into them in your social/work circle.

    @AbeeCee123:  Don’t invite her then. Are you inviting all the siblings of your other guests? Seriously, she knows just as much as you that the two of you aren’t friends.


    You could always talk to her sisters and see what they think about the situation, they will put your mind at ease I’m sure.

    Don’t you have to invite to the wedding everybody who was invited to engagement party or shower?  I thought if you have some ppl on the cusp (meaning they might not end up invited to the wedding for some reason) then you don’t invite them to pre-wedding festivities.  And that ppl are either invited only to the wedding or to everything including the wedding.  

    (Unless there’s some special situation where some small group of ppl, often at work, throws you a separate shower just b/c they want to even tho they know they’re not necessarily invited to the wedding)
