Since your wedding is so far away, I’d refrain from making a final decision on this right away. 

Personally, I invited the coworkers and bosses I am closest to and their spouses.

I would invite only those you have a relationship with outside work; that’s what I did. Our NFP employs over 8,000 so that wasn’t an option.

I invited almost everyone in the local office but we’re like a family; we go to each other’s houses, have a group lunch every Friday and celebrate every single milestones in the others’ lives. I didn’t invite about 5 because I didn’t have an outside of work relationship with them – I would like to think they understood.

I would say this depends on your budget. If you can afford it, it would be so easy to include everyone, but if you can’t, just stick to those you’re closest to.

I work in a small program with a little over a dozen women. I only invited the woman who I work with 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, pretty much one-on-one in the same classroom because the nature of my relationship with her is completely different than with any other co-worker in this program. There are other women I am closer to but I knew that if I opened it up to anyone else not in this one co-worker’s position then I would have to do all or none. Picking and choosing can get a little tricky in the workplace.

I work in a small office and by the time of the wedding, will have been there for over a year, so I was wondering whether I should invite anyone or not. What really solidified my decision was that I realized that I do not socialize with anyone outside of work, so I am not planning to invite them to my wedding. I would suggest either inviting everyone or inviting just the few people you are closest to, but either way, don’t lock yourself in yet. You can always decide to invite them later. πŸ™‚

Best wishes with your interview!

I can’t stand most of my co-workers, but since I am inviting some of the people on my office, I feel obligated to invite them all.

I’d say wait a bit too and only invite the ones you’re closer with.

 

I avoided this dilemma by quitting my job! Haha! Ok, it’s not really why I quit, but now I don’t have to invite anyone  and it won’t be awkward. πŸ˜›

@iheartsquishy:  Haha, that’s my answer to everything work related. It can’t be awkward if I just quit!
