I invited my entire team (10) plus their spouses.  Most were able to come.  It was an all or nothing deal to avoid hurt feelings and keep within the bounds of logic so other people would understand (ie, not inviting anyone else from the larger team even though I wanted to).  Anything else would have been a huge mistake.  I don’t regret my decision at all.

xraychick01 :  You really seem set on invitiing the 3, so invite the 3 PLUS thier SOs. It would be very rude not to invite each SO. This is not adding 3-10 people. You are looking at adding 6-20 people.

The rule of etiquette is that if you invite ANYONE from your work circle, ALWAYS invite your boss. From there, you can invite whoever you want, whether it be 2 people or 200.

sboom :  Well, like all etiquette rules, you can take it with a grain of salt 🙂 But it’s pretty standard where I’m from.

xraychick01 :  OK so here’s what I did. I invited people from work that I hang out with outside of work. One girl I knew before we started working together so that group got invited. I would not invite my boss. I think that’s weird. To me at least. Depends on your relationship.

megm1099 :  It may be common in your circles, but I have to agree that there is no such etiquette rule. The guideline is to invite those with whom you have a social relationship.

Just invite the three! If it was like you were inviting seven of them then that would be different. It’s also considered good taste where I’m from to invite your boss (they probably won’t come, but should be invited) xo

We didn’t invite anyone from work. We kept our wedding only family.
