You’re not overreacting at all. Your wedding isn’t a free-for-all. I’ve never heard of someone randomly posting a wedding invitation on a work bulletin board.
That is why it’s called a “guest list.” It’s an exclusive list. I would talk them out of doing it if I were you.

This is rediculous. It isn’t like posting a sign up sheet for a company softball team; it’s not whoever is interested can join. Tell them that if they don’t have any specific names of people, then they can’t invite coworkers.

My Mother-In-Law kept asking for blank STD’s and invitations – I just was evasive and didn’t get around to it. She told my husband that she was going to hand them out to coworkers randomly and just see who could make it. We kept explaining that we were having a smaller reception and we, ourselves, were not inviting any coworkers. Went in one ear and out the other. No coworkers from Mother-In-Law or ourselves were invited – end of story.
Fast forward to after the wedding – we were reviewing the photos with my In-laws, Mother-In-Law asks ‘so who are your coworkers at the wedding?’. She just didn’t get it or didn’t care.
It’s probably too late now to retract, but if you can maybe up their limit to 4 people each, then at least it will seem like you’re trying to meet them half-way.

Hell to the NO. You could end up with what… another 30 people? You need to stop them NOW. Get “controversial” with them- this is completely unacceptable.
