    Matt & I both have large families & we are 99% certain that most of them will come. We also have a large group of friends and we are 99% certain that a good number of them will come.
    I work for a small company & I would love to invite my "team" that consists of about 8 people. I realize that we can't all take off time at the same time, so they pretty much won't be able to attend. I also don't want them to feel like I didn't invite them (as I've worked with them for 3 years now & we're all pretty close). If I send invites to them (knowing that they won't attend) does it seem tacky & as if I'm just looking for a gift from them? That, of course, is NOT my intention at all.

      Since you are close with your coworkers, I would invite them. They will probably be hurt if you don't. I do not think it looks like you are looking for gifts. If they are friends, they would want to be invited. I am sure they will feel honored to be included. They are not obligated to give you a gift, that is a choice that they will make. Many times, coworkers who are close will have a party or give gifts even if they cannot attend or were not invited, simply b/c they are friends and want to wish you well. I say, invite them and let them decide what they can/want to do.

        No I don't think it is tacky at all. I would invite who you want. We have a large family and group of friends as well and just decided to invite everyone.

          Invite all you wish to be there on your special day- of course if it fits in your budget.

          BRIDE + GROOM + 60 GUESTS!!

            obviously you have to invite both families.regarding friends could you just invite your close friends?regarding work i would invite them knowing that they can,t come but then they won,t be offended.

            are you having a ahr?this is an option so that you could invite everyone who you can,t invite to the wedding.

              I think it depends a lot of your budget, invitations alone can really add up as well as stamps and if they actually come then there are other expenses but if you would regret not inviting people then invite them and figure out a way to budget it in :)
