That happened to me. Well- actually my fiance. He was invited to a co-workers wedding in addition to like five or six other co-workers. And all the co-workers were asked not to bring their significant others. And they were seated together. So I think it is ok. I was a little bummed I couldn’t/wasn’t invited to go (not that I knew this particular person at all, seeing how my fiance worked with her- not me)– until we started our wedding planning and I realized how expensive it is to feed everyone!

Etiquette says to invite the partners.  As the guest, I would probably skip the wedding that didn’t let me bring my husband.  As a bride, I allowed coworkers to bring their partners and made a budget cut elsewhere (favors).

Arguments for inviting people without their partners usually are for when people are having really small intimate weddings. However, unless you are really close with all your coworkers, it’s hard to make that interpretation with your situation. You might also get away with it if they are younger—but people in my parents generation (50’s) would be offended if they couldn’t bring their partners. So I would find a way to invite them with their partners if at all possible. Your coworkers will think you are really classy for doing this. Good luck!
