    tough call; but once you make a decision, invite all or none of the co-workers…

    This is tricky, but it sounds pretty likely that they won’t come.  Maybe they’ll see it as a nice gesture and your relationship with them will grow!

    I would say this is completely up to you. I think you can go either way with this one.

    Send them the invitation – it’s a nice gesture.  Then I would mention to each of them that it’s a long way to go, and that you’d be delighted if they came, but you do not expect them to, and that you do not expect gifts from them.  I think you can be upfront about it.

    I say no.  You just started, and the wedding is far away.

    I would say if it is close, by all means. But being so far, they might feel obligated to go but really don’t want to. Any possibility of a third option? such as having a little in office celebration party??

    I would say you dont HAVE to invite them but if you want to then do it! I dont think they will feel obligated at all! I think they will probably think that it was very thoughtful of you to invite them!! And just because you receieve an invitation to a wedding doesnt mean they have to get you a gift…..maybe they will all say we cant go but then throw you an office party or present a group gift. I think that sometimes in business its good to invite people….especially if you plan to be with the company for a while!
