Quick question: How do you handle not inviting all your co-workers, if you work in a small environment? I’m thinking I’ll just invite the people from my department and the bosses (I get along great with them), but I just can’t afford to invite everybody and I’m not too keen on inviting my CW who just sits and glares at everyone all day. I can see some people being offended, but if I’m not close with them, and money and space is an issue, what else can I do? Any thoughts?

When I was debating this I quickly came to the conclusion that you can’t single people out from different departments, you invite your whole department/bosses or none of them. Exception is co-workers who you actually hang out with outside of work.

At my workplace people invite those they are close to. I have never taken offense at not being invited to someone’s wedding if all we have in common is the same employer.

I actually was having the opposite problem- I want to invite my cube-mates, however, I don’t think they would want to travel 2 hours to the wedding, not to mention they complain (not in a mean way, just more in a tired way,) about going to numerous weddings. I don’t want to seem like I’m just inviting them for a gift….. I’d love to see what other bees have done…

if you do that, just dont invite them to your shower! LOL. i was “singled” out along with one other coworker this year as the girl getting married invited everyone in the work place except me and another girl (who i was close with and we both didn’t care). But she put us in a dilemma when because she felt “bad” so she was so kind as to invite us to her shower/bachelorette girly party where we get her sexy lingerie the night before her wedding!
