Just invite those that you feel are important to you. I assume you have friendships with some and others maybe not so much. If it’s all equal friendships then I would just invite your superior.

I work on a team of 30 people, and I invited the four coworkers I see outside of work or routinely hang out with during the workday.  I did it quietly, away from other people, and mentioned that I wasn’t inviting everyone so they wouldn’t talk about it at work.  I think as long as you don’t make it a public issue, then you should be fine.

I work at a school, and only invited 3 of 8 co-workers because they are friends.  The others were fine with it.  If anyone says anything bad, then they’re just tacky!

I would invite whoever you want, but don’t give them their invites at work. I would send the invites to them. If you do want to give them to them at work then I suggest doing it in private.

ditto abbie017. i work with a lot of people that i really like, but my rule ended up being that if i didn’t talk to them outside of work, then i wasn’t going to invite them. good luck!

A coworker recently got married and she invited everyone but no SOs.  We are sort of in the same situation as you-  I work in a dental practice that changes staff often, so we are just inviting those whom we have known the longest, and no SOs.  Honestly, they said their SOs would be happy not to have to come to a wedding lol.

I am discreetly inviting the closest people at my work. It’s my wedding, we will invite the coworkers I want! I don’t see the need in inviting the ones I don’t know as well. Just make sure you do it tastefully and not make it a big deal to the other people.
