This really depends on what you want. 

We invited a bunch of co-workers, but we have over 100 people in our office. No one was really offended by it; our friends here know who they are.

We only gave plus ones to people we knew were in serious relationships/married. Otherwise, we didn’t do plus one’s (for anyone). We were on a budget, and it didn’t really cause any problems.

There have been a lot of co-worker invite posts on the bee lately! … I say only invite those who you are close with.

Ugh I was a manager in my previous job and i had 15 employees of which i would have wanted to invite maybe half but technically would have had to invite them all or it would be “favoritism”. Thankfully, i started a new job so now i dont have to worry about that. I would say only invite those you are close to. I would think the others would understand!

I agree with PPs, only invite those that you want to attend. If you’re not close with them/don’t really socialize with them, then they shouldn’t really be offended, and if they are, you shouldn’t really care.

@peachbaby4008:  it depends on what you feel comfortable with but firstly, don’t worry about hurting people’s feelings. this is about you and your Fiance and your day, not them. 

if you choose to invite coworkers, then you have to invite their spouses or significant others that live with them. i personally decided to invite four people from work. two are single so they were given one seat and i’m 100% sure they will come together. the other two are married and i invited their spouses but i wouldn’t be surprised if they came together without their men. 

i’m not inviting the other 50 people i work with.

I didn’t invite everyone, only my department. I gave them all +1’s because I wanted them to have a date to talk to. I didn’t feel bad at all for not inviting everyone else because we aren’t close.
