I work as an HR assistant at a company of about 300 employees. In our department it is just my boss and myself – we get along great and she will definately be invited.
I am not considered to be part of the management team but I work pretty closely with most of them on a regular basis and there is one in particular that I have a great friendship with and would want to invite. My question is…..would you invite the remaining 7 to make it easy and not hurt any feelings or just invite the 2 that I am closest too? Thanks for any advice you can give!

I would invite just the ones you are close to. This is what I’m doing. But if you have the budget and space to invite all of them, it is a nice gesture. And people from work usually give very nice gifts 😉
People are usually very understanding, especially people that have had weddings themselves, that it’s not always possible to invite everyone.

I’d just go with the two you are close to. I think the other people will understand that yes, they know you and yes, they work with you but they don’t have the personal relationship you have with the other two.

Like PP said invite the two you are closest too but if budget allows invite them all. I would also skip sending work people Save-The-Date Cards since you never know who will be there in a year!

I’m with the majority – just invite the ones you’re closest to. I’ve always been told to extend an invitation to coworkers that you would otherwise do things outside of work with – someone you would be comfortable going out to dinner with.
