Hi fellow bee’s 🙂
I work in a growing orthopeadic practice and in the last year or so we have hired/fired several people. Our staff is now at about 14 and only about 4 of them do not have a SO. I’ve worked and grown close to about 8 of them. My guest list is already getting out of hand as it is LOL. I’m considering only inviting some of them?
What do I do? I am most definitely inviting the doctor I work hand in hand with and my head honcho doctor (he’s GREAT! and he invited Fiance and I to his wedding a couple of years ago) I don’t want to be rude. Last year one of the staff invited us co-workers but didn’t let us bring a plus one. The whole office was talking about how upsetting that was to them.. I don’t want that to be me.
Help me Bee’s!

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!

- Wedding: September 2013 - The Gables at Chadds Ford
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.
