I found out my boss is planning to fly to Mexico the day after my wedding for business. I have mixed feelings about her - as a person she's really nice but as a boss she's not so great and that clouds my judgement of her. So...knowing that she's going to be in the area anyway, do I invite her? I don't want to feel uncomfortable around her afterwards.


We are going to do a brunch back home afterwards for those who couldn't attend our wedding so she would've been invited to that had she not told me about her trip.

Tough call!  If you feel like you would be uncomfortable around her afterwards I would say no.

I say invite her if it doesn't break you bank numbers wise, and if you were already hoping she would attend your AHR. If she doesn't want to come she will make an excuse, and if she does she will be pleased to have been included.

I agree, if she would be invited to the brunch you must have some type of relationship with her... Like kmk2016 said if she doesn't want to go she will figure out a way. At least you will have done your part.

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend

I would not invite her. Just because she's going to be close to you in proximity doesn't mean that she is worthy of being a guest...she's a boss. Being at the wedding is different than an AHR...that's a nice gesture to invite to her to the AHR, and that's enough. Keep work and personal like separate, especially, if you are not really feeling her. It's your day! There should not be one person at your wedding who causes you to frown.....

If you even have to question it... don't invite her (but that's just my two cents - do what makes you happy!)

Nah, I wouldn't, if you have mixed feelings about her and inviting her. You could invite her to the AHR if you feel obligated to include her in something..

I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.

Do what will make you feel comfortable. My advice is this is YOUR special day and those invited should be people who care and matter to you and your FI.

Good Luck :)
