Inviting Co-workers

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies. I work in a very small organization and work very closely with just my supervisor and one other person who has the same job as I do. I'm new to the area and have no friends or anyone to socialize with so I end up talking to them about lots of stuff that have nothing to do with work. They are really nice gals, but it takes me a long time to make friends and haven't really made that connection with them as yet.

 

I'm struggling whether to invite them to the wedding or not since I am only inviting family and really close friends (have known for 5+ years). But I feel weird not inviting them cause they are the only ones I have to talk to about all of this stuff. Any thoughts?

You might want to consider bringing up the fact that you're planning on a small, intimate wedding of just close family and friends to your coworkers.

 

A secretary in my office is having her wedding in 7 weeks, and socializes with many of us on a daily basis. She made it very clear that she has a large family and can only afford so many plates, so none of us are expecting an invitation from her.

 

I think it's more difficult when you have those certain coworkers who ask you if they're invited to the wedding- having to respond kindly without hurting their feelings.

 

Good luck! I think you'll feel more at ease once you get your point across to them.

That's exactly the situation I am in. They kind of both expect to be invited. I told them that the FI and I haven't decided yet if we'd be inviting coworkers but I said if I were to invite anyone it would just be the two of them. I'm kicking myself because I wish I had been prepared to say were just keeping it to friends and family.

Thanks for the feedback.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
