I work in a large office but my dept is fairly small. I want to invite the 4 women I work with but not necessarily my male boss. He isn’t a very social person but is very nice. We have very limited personal interaction or conversations.. I almost feel awkward asking for his address to send the invitation. Is it wrong to invite the rest of the gang without inviting him? I went to one of the girls weddings (that I work with) and the boss and his wife were invited to that and did attend. What do you think?

I wouldn’t risk it. I’d invite him. Chances are he’ll find out that the others went. You don’t want your boss to feel slighted, it could effect an already awkward professional relationship.
I wrote a post before I sent my invites out, asking if I should invite my horrible boss. Everyone has mixed feelings but leaned toward inviting her, so I do. She’s been semi-pleasant ever since. You may find that when you reach out, he becomes more social and the relationship improves.

@dancrgrl: Well, I think that you should invite him. There is a lady in my direct dept (there are 3 of us) that i don’t particularly want to invite, because she’s mean and doesn’t help out at work much. I am inviting her anyway, because I feel like it’s rude not to invite someone in such a close knit dept when I am inviting the other one.

I wouldn’t invite him if I was in your situation.

Thanks ladies.. I suppose there is the chance he won’t come but he is so polite and politically correct, I can see him and his wife coming just to show face… it’s crazy that we are all doing this to be polite! But I get where you are going.
