I just went ahead and didn’t invite anyone.  Now I’m wondering if I should have.

@Beth:  I’ll be inviting one person from my office. I’m friends with all of them, but our wedding is limited to people that will genuinely be in our lives forever (30 people). I’ve made comments before about how small it is, so I don’t think they’d expect an invite. 

Maybe start doing something similar, make comments about limited numbers at the venue and how you wish everyone could come. But can’t.

I work in a small office where I’m close with about 5 people who I would definitely invite. We hang out outside of work, etc. There are about four other people in the office who I feel like I “have” to invite. I do like them, I just wouldn’t invite them if they didn’t work in my office directly.

I would say it depends on your number.

I have a friend who used to work here. He had just started around the time he was wedding planning and we all became close during that period. His RSVP numbers were low so he sent us a last minute email invite. No one was offended that we weren’t initially invited and those who could go were happy and excited to. 

His email said something like: We would have invited you initially but our list was made/venue picked before we even met but since our responses came in under the number there is plenty of room available and I’d love you all to attend if possible. I agree that if it’s an hour away, most of the people who received the invite via email probably won’t go. I think it’s a nice gesture.
