I think it would be a great gesture to invite them if you have the room/budget, but if it involves stretching yourself, I wouldn’t worry about it. It sounds like you aren’t that close to these people yet, and you shouldn’t feel obligated to invite them just because you’re going to be working with them for a long time!

Agreed with Amanda. If you have the resources, it may be a good move, but if it is going to stress you and/or your budget, it really isn’t necessary or anything to feel guilty about.

I had the exact same situation to deal with! My fiance and I are involved in a co-hort program and have all of the same classes with the same group of about 25 people. I went back and forth about who to invite and who not to invite without making our wedding seem like an elementary school birthday party (you know.. where all of the kids talk about who was/wasn’t invited lol)! We ended up choosing to invite only the people that we make a point to hang out with outside of class, be it on a Saturday night or out to lunch between classes. We ended up inviting 10 people out of the group. I was thinking the same thing as you though – we are going to be with these people for years to come so we wanted to make a point to include them in our special day! Hope this helps… I know it is a little awkward and stressful but it will all work out!
