@Beansbabe:  Simple: invite who you want! You’re keeping it small, and everyone should respect that!

I have to say, I have been invited to some coworkers weddings who I was close enough to that I’d consider them friends, and I’m so glad I got to go.  In fact I am still friends with them years later, no longer coworkers.  At these weddings, not everyone was invited.  Only a select few who were friends.   These weddings also involved overnight (or longer!) travel so that probably helped them feel better about narrowing the guest list to those who’d really consider that kind of commitment.

More recently, though, another coworker got married and invited our whole department.  Most of us made it there, because it was local and we thought we’d go have a good time with one another, at least.  But I have to say, a number of us really were confused as to why we were invited at all.  We knew that the guy wasn’t equally close to all of us and perhaps even disliked some of us.  But we all went.  It was kind of weird for us all to be invited, but ended up being a fun enough outing. 

I think the moral of the story is just was babybee says.  Invite who you’d really want to be there!

I doubt they’ll take ofense.  Just make it known that it’s a small wedding.
