Thinking of inviting co-workers to your wedding. Wonder what is acceptable with inviting co-workers? Is it possible to just invite a few select co-workers? If so, does one need to also invite their spouse’s? As I recently shared with the readers of Blueprint Boutique……Let me answer those sticky and confusing questions for you!
When inviting co-workers to your wedding, you must do so with discernment. In the height of excitement about your upcoming wedding, you should be cognizant of the notion you may be sending (i.e. you do not want to give the impression that you’re inviting everyone from the office or department when in fact it maybe only a select few). To avoid this perception, I would suggest minimizing the office talk about your wedding.
For those co-workers that you plan to invite to your wedding you must also invite their spouse, fiancée, and live-in partner. Be sensitive to your single friends. From college age on, your single guests should be extended an “and guest” invitation. If you want people to have a good time at your wedding, they need to be comfortable. Nobody is going to be comfortable when the only person they know is you, and you are preoccupied.
Also, in lieu of hand delivering your invitations in the office, it is critical to send each invitation to their home address.
