I work at a small consulting firm, we’ll call it consulting firm A. I am a contractor, contracted out to work at a different consulting firm (consulting firm B) next door to the one that technically employs me (consulting firm A…sorry if that’s confusing). I am getting married 10-12, and am considering inviting a couple of people from consulting firm A that I’ve gotten close to recently. However, I rarely speak to most of the other people at consulting firm A, including the two people that are technically my bosses. (It’s a 15-person firm.)
If I’m only inviting two people from consulting firm A, should I just ask them privately not to spread it around the office that they’ve been invited? I don’t want anyone else to feel weird, even though I’m not on a friendship-type basis with any of them.

Totally depends on the office. If you don’t spend your days in Office A, then you’re probably safe to invite only the coworkers you are close to and ask them not to talk about it. When I worked at a small office it was hard because everyone would talk to you about your party.. so everyone who wasn’t invited knew it. Since you’re not around, it’s shouldn’t be an issue.

people should not ever discuss an event with peoplke who are not invited.
Honestly, worry about it. invite who you are close to, and don’t invite who you aren’t close with.

I eat lunch over there every day, but usually only with these two girls. Sometimes other people eat with us (specifically two other people) but that’s usually only about once a week. We often talk about my wedding, but I don’t think it would be too difficult to ask them to just not mention that they’re invited even when we speak with those other girls. ?
