    I don’t think you need to invite her – and if you and your Fiance aren’t inviting anyone from work, no one from work should be offended that they did not receive an invite.

    I don’t see the need to unless you are inviting the majority of your coworkers.  You don’t want to leave your boss out.  But, if you arent inviting most of your coworkers, it’s fine not to invite your boss!

    A good question to ask yourself is would you invite your boss to any other social event in your life. Would you invite her to your birthday party? Probably not. Then why would you invite her to your wedding, which is more personal than a birthday party?

    I’ve worked with my boss for years and I’m still not inviting her or any of my coworkers except one who I hang out with outside work. If you don’t see your work-people outside work, why would you invite them to your wedding?

    If it’s family only, that’s simple!  No need to invite your boss!  Plus, I would feel awkward if I was the only non-family member invited to a wedding and didn’t know anyone!

    I had been at my job for 5.5 months (out of 11 months planning) by the time I got married. I didnt invite my boss or any coworkers

    I agree that there is no need to invite your boss, but I am inviting mine (both of them) but we have personal relationships.  Like I know more about their children’s lives than their husbands do, and more about my bosses past than most of their close family – and visa versa.  So I really think it depends on your personal relationship with them as opposed to just because she/he is your boss.

    You definitely don’t need to invite her. My husband invited his boss, and pretty much his entire office, but that’s only because they all get along really well and hang out together outside the office. I, on the other hand, only invited a couple people I work with closely, and didn’t invite anybody else, including my boss.

    I have invited 3 friends from work one of which is my (sort of boss) – but we all socialize outside of work so I wanted to – lots of my colleagues are coming just for the reception – which is what lots of people are doing at our wedding because of the small ceremony !!

     

    I think if you don’t socialize outside of work – and you haven’t been chatting to her for ages about the wedding then I so no problem in not inviting her 😀

     

    goodluck!
