co-worker invites Help!!

Recommended Posts

Its a destination wedding, so not everyone can come. Do I invite the entire dept to be polite or none at all? Or should I just invite the 2 people that may be able to come? Not everyone can afford to go, the whole dept can't be empty, and I don't have the bond with everyone for them to all want to come. The fact is we are a team and I would invite them all (without question) if I were doing a local wedding, but I'm not and either way everyone is not going to Jamaica. How do I do this and not be rude??!?

That's a tough one. I ended up not inviting any co-workers because we kept it mostly family and friends. Everyone totally understood. We are having a local reception in Chicago and I plan to invite the whole department to that. It really comes down to this...it's your wedding so you can do whatever YOU want! And if people do take offense, that's for them to deal with not for you to worry about. :)

We did the same.

What about if you are not having an AHR?

 

I'm wondering what to do b/c I work for a medical device company (so we all work individually our of our homes). Our region consists of several states but there are 4 of us who work in the same area and are fairly close.

 

I'm wondering if it's ok to just invite just the ones that I see & talk with on a regular basis (I don't think they will come) but wonder how it will be perceived by the team if it comes up in conversations.

 

Any thoughts? I appreciate your help!

well, I am not having a AHR and after this discusson, I am thinking I am just not going to invite any. I think it will be worse if I invite some and not all. THose that I have developed a relationship with I think will understand- especially since they more likely wouldn't come either way.

We decided to put up an open invitation to the whole department. We were surprised by the number of people attending. About 20 co-workers are coming, so unless you want a larger wedding stick with only a few people. We are happy about all the people coming to ours, just unexpected.

We only invited one current co-worker who I knew before I started this position, and a bunch of past co-workers to the AHR. Only immediate family were invited to the wedding.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
