Well, I’m not inviting a new coworker who joined the department in February/March, but that’s because I don’t like this person 🙂

However, if you have room and wouldn’t mind him attending, go ahead and invite him. If it will cause issues with seating arrangements, budgets, etc., then don’t. And if he asks (or gives you weird looks or whatever) let him know that the guest list was finalized before he started and unfortunately you don’t have the space to add any additional guests at this time.

But, since it’s a guy, I’m assuming he really won’t care one way or the other.

If you are inviting everyone else in the office, then yes, I would invite him. My husband wanted to invite 3 of his 5 coworkers. The other 2 are pretty hated by him, but I decided to give them an invite anyways and while none of them came, I think we did right as far as office politics go.

I would invite him. I work at a large story so we decided to only invite a few people and it has been a MESS. Very uncomfortable when people ask you about the wedding. A lot of them assumed they were invited. Etc. So, I’d say if you have the space avoid the hassle.

I would only invite people who I like & would talk/ hang out with outside of work.

I also would say to invite him if you are inviting everyone else.

I think it would be a nice gesture to include him and he’d certainly feel special – but you aren’t obligated to.
