hi there, been following for a while and just thought i’d ask your opinion about this…i’m getting married in july and im having the ceremony at the church, and a cocktail reception at a hotel, followed by a sit down dinner.The dinner is for close friends and family.
Since i work at a school (about 35 staff), i was wondering if it would be rude to invite them just to the ceremony and reception and not the dinner? i am inviting 3 colleagues that im close with though….i dont know what to do since i see these people everyday and it’s a small school….what do you think? would they be offended?

@nad2012: I would think you either invite guests to all events (ceremony, cocktails, and dinner) or none at all.
As far as coworkers are concerned, I only invited those coworkers who I regularly spent time with outside of work. If I never spent time with them aside from work and work events (happy hours, etc), I didn’t invite them.
I do think it might cause conflict if you invite some coworkers to all events and others to only some. Whereas if you have some coworkers who are also your friends outside of work I don’t think people can fault you for inviting them and not those who you do not spend time with outside of work.
