I would invite him and any other employees that are local. I struggled with whether or not to invite coworkers, but I think my boss would be pretty offended if he weren’t invited. So, I invited pretty much the 12 or so coworkers that I interact with on a daily basis, including my boss and my boss’s boss (the company’s CFO).

Don’t invite him if you don’t want to. I feel if you invite him, then you will need to invite the rest of the local co-workers.

If you have room for him, and for any other employees who are local, I’d invite them. They’ll really appreciate the invite.

I love my coworkers but I didn’t invite any.  I keep my work life and personal life seperate for the most part but mostly because I work with a lot of people and couldn’t invite all so thought non was nicer then a few.  If you are close with him then sure, but don’t do it out of obligation alone. And I def wouldn’t if you don’t feel 100% comfortable and yourself around him. Sometimes people are on edge around their boss’s and you don’t want to feel any of that on your wedding day.

I think you should do what you’re comfortable with. I work in a very small office, I’m inviting the owner and the paralegal here. I’m not inviting the receptionist, but he’s new and I don’t know him terrribly well. We’re inviting the owners of my FI’s job as well, but we’ve known them forever.
