@MrsACarpenter:  I work in a small office. There are about 12 people on my floor. I am closer to some than others. I only invited the ones I was close with. It would have been ridiculous to invite everyone plus their significant others. People understand.

I’m unsure of what to do on this also… I work at a company with an ‘office’ and a ‘shop’… There are a few people in the office who I actually work with that I will invite; but then I’m not sure about everyone else. There are a couple office people who I wouldn’t invite, and then all of the shop guys? I’m debating on just leaving them all out; or putting up one invitation in the break room to cover them all assuming they probably won’t come anyways, but at least extending a welcome? I don’t know on this either….

It’s a small company so is around 15 people total.

@MrsACarpenter:  Ya i mean you have to draw the line somewhere. I invited two of my co workers + significant others and my boss. I felt like I had to invite him though since his gift to people getting married is 5 extra paid vacation days

I’m still debating this as well.  I’ve been at my firm for less than a year, Fiance has been in his position for just over 3 years.  Because we’re trying keep the wedding around 90 guests and paying for everything ourselves, we decided we would just invite colleagues that we socialize with outside of the office, which is all of 4 people.  It’s helping us financially and mentally – no worrying about having to invite people for political reasons or inviting entire departments/pods.  But I do worry about cutting off potential new friendships by not inviting certain people that I talk to but only in the office, or that it would be wrong not to invite the partners I work with the most – the ones who know I’m getting married and talk with me about it.
