Do Coworkers Get an Invite to the Wedding?
Updated: Aug 13, 2018
The people you spend a lot of time with tend to be the ones you work with. Although you might tell them your random thoughts, rant or they control your paycheck, you should never feel like you have to invite anyone to your wedding. If you’re not sure how to deal with the awkward situation at work, here are three options to help guide you.
Don’t Invite Anyone
The simplest answer. Just to avoid all issues, don’t invite anyone from work! Most people understand how expensive weddings are and they should understand if you tell them you can’t invite them (even if it is an excuse!). This is also an easy way out if a coworker is itching for an invite, tell them no one is invited.
Invite All of Them
If you work in a smaller office or group and your budget and venue allows it, why not bring along everyone? No one can complain if everyone is invited. This is also good if you feel close with your boss and coworkers.
Invite Ones You See Outside
If you enjoy the company of some of your coworkers and consider them friends, don’t be afraid to only invite a few of the people you work with! The ones you hang out with outside of work will be the easiest mediator to figure out which ones to invite. Obviously, don’t give them their invitations at work in front of others or talk about it to be conscious of feelings.
If you are really friendly with your boss and coworkers and you want them to share your special day, invite them. If you don’t want to invite them or can’t, don’t! There is no problem in making your special day how you want it!
