I would say no. You guys are work friends. I’ve had many of those over the years. I have about three I am still close to after leaving the job. Women bond very quickly and it’s common to feel close to these girls. It’s wonderful. I think inviting them to the wedding is great but like another bee said, it could create tension.

I think it’s good to be cautious.  You really want to only include people that you’ll be close with for a long time.  I think an Maid/Matron of Honor and one Bridesmaid or Best Man who you’ve already chosen sounds just fine.  I had my sister (MOH), and best friend and Future Sister-In-Law, and DH had the converse.  Then his cousin and other close friend were ushers.  There’s always a way to make it work, but don’t ask people just to have extra bodies, only have people that the day would be incomplete without.

I have an ex-co worker bridesmaid as well as an ex-co worker officiant…but I don’t really consider them that.  I consider them the first friends I made when I moved to Seattle 4 years ago.


At this point in coordinating I’d personally say fewer bridesmaids is easier…though to be honest those two are my most dependable friends.  I knew that before I asked since I worked with them lol…but the difference in dependability has been striking.
