Inviting Co-workers

Recommended Posts

Just go with what your gut is telling you :)

I dont think there is a wrong why to handle this.

I know how people can get their feeling hurt, so just try to tell the ones you do invite to keep the information about your wedding private to create a happier work enviroment :) The less drama the better!!

 

I work in a small office as well ( 8 people and 10 contact event employees), I talked to my Head Boss about my wedding and how to handle not inviting everyone. (I'm sending off my save the dates soon so people can start making there vacation plans). She understood, after all she has a business to run and everyone cant take time off from work and shut the office down to attend my wedding. Not to mention we have a policy that no more than 2 people from our office can be on vacation at the same time. She just told me to be honest with everyone, that I would love for everyone to attend, but due to the cost we are only having close friends and family. I'm actually only invited 2 girls from my office (who are sisters) and 2 of our contract event employees. I did have a few girls tell me that they would not be attending but would love for me to send them an STD/invite, just to have it as a keepsake :)... I will be happy to bring them a invite with my extra invitations that I'm not going to use :)

I'm a nurse and know that most (or maybe none) of the girls are actually going to make the trip in December for our wedding but I will be inviting all of them. This won't be seperate invitations though, I'm bringing one invitation in and my manager is hanging it in our breakroom. The girls are throwing me a shower so I wanted to let them know they are all welcome.

I would post the inviation or std in the lunch room. When they realize that it is a destination wedding mostly likely they will not want to come because of the extra expense like passport hotel. Only the ones that truly are your friend will actually come. No one will feel excluded and you may actually get a gift!!!

Hi Amelie-Mellow. I have the same problem...But since I only have a limited number of wedding invitations, I am going to post one (1) invitation outside of my cube wall for all of my many coworkers to read. I have lots of coworkers and I know for certain that some of them would be offended if they did not receive an invitation. I will have more leeway with the AHR invitations so my cube wall, everyone on my team, plus a few friends in other departments will get one of those. At the end of the day, you probably should only extend a personal invitation (including verbally) to the co-workers who you are closest to and absolutely know would really want to attend. I mean really want to attend…because they care about you as a person.

This is tough because a lot of my bosses invited themselves so now I have to invite all of them so nobody feels left out but I'm not inviting everyone at work. It's funny that people expect to be invited.

I also work in a small office so I invited everyone. I know those that definitely won't be able to come appreciate me thinking of them. I had extras to send anyway so it wasn't a big deal for me.

That sounds like a great idea I work with about 60 people and had no clue how to handle it!!
Thanks.smile36.gif

I am having the same problem. I know working in an office it can be difficult but in all honesty if you don't want them there than don't send an invite. If anything, maybe co-workers will throw you a shower and they can attend that instead.

 

Everyone understands nowadays that money doesn't grow on trees and if you could you would invite everyone but there has to be a limit somewhere.

 

Hope you get your answer :)

I work with mostly guys since I work in the Service Department of a car dealership, so they don't really care about stuff like "feeling left out" and "invite keepsakes" Lol. I will be inviting a few of them that me & my FI actually hang out with outside of work.

    • 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.
