    You do not have to invite you boss. However it may be very awkward after the fact id you invited other co-workers and not her.

    No, you do not have to invite your boss.

    And furthermore, even if you did, I highly doubt that she would come. It depends somewhat on the culture of your workplace, but most bosses try to keep their relationships with employees strictly business anyway. It’s kind of an unspoken rule because in general it’s too complicated and a bad idea to mix business with pleasure that way.

    Unless she’s a wackadoo, I don’t think your boss will be offended.

    I don’t think you need to invite your boss, its your wedding, you should be surrounded by people you want there!!

    I don’t think you’re obligated at all to invite her, but if a personal grudge is likely to make your life miserable for months/years to come, maybe it’s worth tossing an invite her way.

    There’s no obligation to invite her.  If you’re inviting work people who are also your friends outside of work, that’s totally different from inviting your whole current department and leaving one person out.

    FWIW, I adore my boss but I’m not inviting her because I don’t really want her there while I’m partying and misbehaving with my friends.

    I’m only inviting close friends from work (5 women that I’m close to). That being said, they don’t work in my current department, so I’m not worried about it getting around that I invited them and not my current boss, coworkers, etc. I think it’s entirely up to you about inviting work colleagues.
