I have an etiquette question… I am close with my manager (at work she has become a bit of a mentor) and she is constantly asking me questions about my wedding and the planning, which I appreciate. I would like to invite her to my wedding along with two other co-workers but I really don’t hvae room for their dates. What do you think I should do? Is this a major faux pas? Should I explain my space restrictions to them in private and then issue the invite to them only? Please help.

i think that would be the best way to go about it – but in all honesty if i was invited to a co workers wedding and my husband couldnt i come i probably wouldnt come either, but i would totally send a gift.
I only invited 3 coworkers – my boss, my partner and crime, and another manager here that i’ve known for years (and their wives) – i was more worried about other people being offended in the office that i didnt invite them as well but space was a problem, money was a problem – most people will understand that.

I’m curious as to how to go about it as well. I’ve got a few coworkers I don’t really like, but feel like, they’ll make my life a living hell after if I don’t atleast invite them.

Because of space restrictions I only invited my direct boss. I didn’t want to pick and choose other people and I’m not super close with most of my coworkers. The only other person who I work with who was invited is DH’s aunt but we are very close and she is family anyway so I didn’t consider her a coworker invite.
It sounds like you’re pretty close with the coworkers who you’d like to invite. I don’t think it would be wrong at all to mention to them the space restrictions and invite only them. Like PP said I probably wouldn’t attend if my Darling Husband couldn’t come but I’d be glad that I was invited and I’d definitely send a gift.

If the wedding was local, I would consider attending sans date. More than 2 hours away, I’d probably just send a gift. If you’re pretty close with them, it wouldn’t hurt to ask. 🙂

I’m inviting some of mine to the wedding only. And my immediate bosses to both events. My dad can’t afford everyone! As much as I would love to invite most. Some I don’t want there at all.

I think as long as you sit them together, it’s fine to not have them bring dates. You only have space for so many people, so invite those you want to be there with you (and if that is the co-workers, then so be it).
