We’ve cut a couple people from our guest list (for good reasons) and am now able to invite my boss. I was hoping she’d say she’d come with another co-worker as she did to another wedding but she said she did that because her husband was unavailable. I’ve never met her husband and I want both of them to come but can’t invite both + guests.
Should I invite just my boss + guest?
Or invite my boss alone & other co-worker alone?

i say boss plus her spouse and eliminate the other co-worker. I feel it would be impolite to not let spouse come. Besides, this person does your evaluation at work. 🙂

lol true. but the other co-worker has helped me alot with DIY invitations because she’s really crafty. hmm, maybe if we get enough no’s quickly enough i can throw her an invite too 😛

Yeah, I’d invite the boss plus her husband. I would find a way to invite the coworker plus one, too though since she helped you with your invitations.

I had this dilemma – some of my co-workers plus partners (which would be 2 tables at the wedding), or all of them alone (or none…I wouldn’t miss them on the day!)
I went with them alone – I’ve heard wives who’ve had to go to their husband’s coworkers’ weddings complain about not knowing anyone, and so I figured that all my coworkers can just socialise with each other.
I’m sure people will complain, but if they’re that offended, they can just not come – I’ve had to not invite lots of friends because of limited space, so people who happen to work in the same office as me are really low priority for me. I just felt that the line had to come somewhere. I don’t feel great about the decision, but I’m not losing sleep over it – whereas I would lose sleep over having too many people for the venue!

You can’t invite your boss without her husband (you can’t break up social units i.e. long-relationship couples, couples who live together, engaged couples, and married people). So if you have to not invite someone, don’t invite your co-worker and invite you’re boss with her husband.

@whiteredrose – That’s exactly what I was thinking. I never met my bosses husband but then again she might get offended if i invite her alone but invite 2 other co-workers plus their bf’s (whom i have met).
I’m just going to invite both my boss & other co-worker + their husbands. My boss was telling me that most likely only 40-50 people will come to my wedding (inviting 84, told the venue 60) because 50% typically show up and it’s also on a Sunday evening. So I’ll just go ahead and invite them both and NOT WORRY ABOUT IT haha I wrote that in CAPS to tell myself 😛
