I think it’s fair to invite just one co-worker if there’s an obviously different relationship. (i.e. you’re not just coworkers, your his girlfriend’s friend.)

I’d invite them. Obviously you send the invitation to their home as opposed to deliver it to work.

My immediate supervisor is my MOH.  I will also invite my big boss & his wife (they are like grandparents to us) and perhaps 1 or 2 other coworkers.  Though I work in a relatively small office (~10 people) i don’t feel the need to invite them all.

I think it is only bad if you invited half your co-workers and not the other half…I’m sure it will be fine. If you are worried about it, have a quiet word to your friends boyfriend and just ask him to say that you invited his gilfriend and he is just tagging along.

Agree with PP’s- if you have no relationship outside of work with any co-workers, and you invite 3 and don’t invite another 3, that could be a problem. But if you make your choices based specifically on people you do and don’t have a relationship with outside of work, that’s a legit deciding factor. I only have a relationship with one co-worker outside of work- she’s been one of my best friends for five years.  None of my other co-workers are invited, but she’s in the wedding. Everyone understands just fine.
