  • Wedding: November 2010

I’m a teacher too and started at my first school this year. Earlier in the year a co-worker got married and we all recieved invitations to a lunch in the library for her and were told to dress up as a cheesy wedding guest. I showed up to the library and the bride was there in someone’s hideous 80’s wedding dress with a huge veil and ALL the teachers were dressed up as if they were a) tragic and b) going to a wedding. The library was set up like a wedding reception and we all had place settings and a role (I was the brides BFF from highschool – another teacher was the grooms ex fiance LOL) and our Assistant Principal did a speech (His role was the Father of the Bride) it was awesome and hilarious!

I’m getting married in November so I don’t know if they’ll do something for that but I suspect there will at least be a morning tea.

I think your co-workers will definitely want to attend. It’s a nice thing that brings people together and is a bit of fun. Enjoy!

I teach also and in my school we throw a bridal shower, baby shower, etc. for each teacher who is getting married, having a baby, etc. I guess we just really like to celebrate! There is no expectation of being invited to the wedding or any other events (I think that’s what you’re asking). Usually, the party is given by the grade-level team of that teacher so they provide the cupcakes or treats, and the others bring gifts. Each grade level or group of teachers typically pool money together to buy something on the registry. It’s an easy way to allow your co-workers to be a part of your special time and I’m sure they understand that it’s not plausible to have everyone of your co-workers at your wedding.
