- Wedding: September 2013
Hi Bees! I have a somewhat awkward situation… my wedding is 10-12 hours away from where I currenly live. I work in a small office (only 4 other coworkers) and I am friends with the people at work, but all of them have families and I’m pretty sure they can’t make it. I wouldn’t expect them to come with it being so far away. At first, I thought it would be a nice gesture to send them all an invitation, since they all know that I’m getting married and where/when. However, now that I know they can’t come, I don’t want them to think I’m just sending an invitation to get gifts! The problem is that I already sent save-the-dates. Would it be completely inappropriate to just bring one invitation to work and let my coworkers see it? Or should I just go ahead and send a formal invitation to each person but mention something to them about no gifts?
Thanks, I don’t want to seem like I’m making a money grab with people that I already know can’t come– but I also feel like I should send them an invitation just out of politeness. Also, if my wedding were in town, they would definitely be invited and I think most of them would probably come.
Finalizing our guest list is giving me so much grief the past couple weeks!!
