Inviting Co-workers

Recommended Posts

Awesome feedback. I think in the end I am going to go with my "gut" and only invite the 1 or two people who are really my friends and socialize with me outside of the office. Like many of you said- they wont shut down the office and might not even expect to be invited.

 

Thanks!

I also work in a small office and I only invited one of the girls...the only one that I hang out with outside of work. I have not had anyone say anything about it. I don't really think the others expected to be invited...it's small and it's out of the country!

I was having this same dilemma. I decided I would invite everyone, knowing the majority of them wouldn't make the trip. Someone has to stay and man the office.

I work in an office of about 15 people & I decided it was easier just to invite everyone. They're not going to come to Cancun, but I've found that they are all very appreciative of the invitation. I'm having an AHR also which some of them might come to, and the added expense of them coming to that is worth it to me. I didn't want it to be awkward in the office if I were talking about the wedding.

 

Also, I'm inviting everyone on my invitation list to both the wedding & the AHR knowing that very few will go to the wedding, but I think people appreciate the thought of being invited to both. And if they want to spend their vacation in Cancun at my wedding...the more the merrier!

This is so true just like family. I work for a very large company. I will invite everyone in my department. I know they will not be coming, but at least I invited them. That way on one can say I hurt their feelings.

I invited only two workers out of my nine co-workers. I just told them to keep it down and not get hyped up about it. No one took it personally and they understand it can get costly.

I did not invite anybody from work. I know a few of them and I see them outside the office, but there are not "friends" in the true sense of the word. I told everybody it was only family and close relatives so nobody would take offense - and at least I avoided the 9she got invited not me why" drama.

I agree with DWBridetobe- the office won't shut down for the week so invite everyone! Also a destination wedding is pricey so only people who consider themselves to be close to you will go. I work at a school with over 30 staff so I am just inviting those that I want there!

I'd be leery of sending all coworkers an invite to the wedding because it could be perceived as a gift-grab. I think only those who are close friends should be invited. I work in a small office and that's how it's done where I work. Everyone knows who hangs out together after work so we know who would be invited to events.

Tough call. You have to do what you think is right. How badly do you want those 1-2 people you're closer with at the office to attend? Are they as good of friends as your other friends? Unless you feel you're really close to them, I wouldn't worry about inviting them. Are you having any type of celebration at home, after the DW?

We had a small wedding with just close friends and family, but we're having a much bigger AHR to include extended family, friends, and co-workers.

    • 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.
