People are so weird… If I regularly had dinners/went shopping with a coworker I’d half-expect an invite to their wedding, but people who barely speak to you, what gives!

Luckily ours is sort of a Destination Wedding so no coworkers invited, although there are a few girls I would invite if we were having a local wedding. They’ll be invited to our post-wedding party though.

I work in an office of men, me being the only woman with my boss’ wife coming in a few days a week. I invited them, they asked if it was OK to just come to the ceremony which I am fine with. The other guys kind of felt left out, not sure why since they don’t really know my Fiance like my boss does.

My Fiance has worked in a shop with the same guys for the past 5 years, so he is in the same prediciment as you. We decided that he would invite the people who he is closest with, but sadly couldn’t afford to invite them all. So it ended up with a few people left out (who he didn’t even consider inviting). A few of them have made comments to him which make him feel guilty, but it’s not for them to use our wedding as a social gathering for work guys, my Fiance understands where I’m coming from by saying no. But really, invites have gone out so late ones shouldn’t be given unless you really have a change of heart.

People are just presumptious and rude. They have no business confronting you about this (an  how unprofessional). Especially the one who had his wedding. Like really?
