I hate when someone brings up my wedding to other coworkers in front of me. I work in a small office of 15 people and can not invite everyone. I’m closer to some coworkers than others. I’ve worked there for 5 yrs, and am wondering how should I approach this. I’m mailing invites to those attending. Also random friends on FB that I rarely talk to are asking or saying “can’t wait” on my Wall. One coworker is new, and we’ve bonded super fast in the past 6 months and I’m inviting her yet I have no relationship with a few others that I’ve known for yrs a work. I don’t want to offend anyone. What if someone not invited feels hurt. How do I avoid this?
I had one coworker who just posted an invite on frig in the break room, the week of her wedding. haha Since it was last minute a lot of us didn’t go. She had worked there for over 10 yrs with some others but I had only been there a yr. I wasn’t expecting an invite. Lol

It might be a little late for this, but for the FB friends I would set up a “not invited” friends list and exclude them from any wedding-related posts. If they don’t see anything about your wedding, they won’t be thinking about it! As for coworkers, try to avoid talking about it at work. Pull the people you’re inviting aside and ask them not to talk about it either so you don’t offend people.
I worked in a 60+ person call center for a while and it always seemed everyone thought they were invited to everything! As a result, I NEVER talked about my plans, my personal life… anything at all. People thought I was kind of unsocial but that was a price I was willing to pay.

I’m having the same problem, very awkward. One of my coworkers I was having lunch with the other day was like, where are we doing your bachelorette party?? And asking questions about where the wedding is, when it is, mentioning she wanted to make plans to come, etc. I was like awkwarrrrd

Yes, that sounds very awkward! My fiance has a customer at his job that keeps asking about the wedding. The guy even offered to let us use his church. Then he asked my fiance if he had a best man. This is a regular costomer (stranger) that he’s helped at the retail store, in his dept. lol

I work for a compnay of about 60 people, but we are an on-site vendor for a huge company. I’ve invited a few co-workers who I like and want to be there but I’ve asked they keep it quiet. We can’t invite everyone, though luckily no one has asked/assumed they were attending. The few I did invite were surprised since we have only been working together for a few months, but I really like them and wanted them there.
Regarding FB, I don’t post about the wedding much, though my relationship status is engaged so people know. I’ve only received a few random comments over the last year that sounded like they assumed they were being invited, but I just ignored the comments and never responded. They’ll get the memo they weren’t invited when wedding photos are posted.
