Who here is inviting their bosses?! Not sure what I want to do yet...I don’t want to invite mine to my wedding but on the other hand don’t want to be rude either. My boss came up to me and said I know weddings are expensive so don’t worry about inviting me it’s ok(i don’t know if this is a trick statement he was throwing at me to see if he was invited but I simply reply aw well thanks but we haven’t figured out the guest list yet this was a couple of months ago) I I have worked at my job for 7 years what is everyone’s opinion on this??
I'm inviting my entire office. Are you close with your boss? Are your work-related friends people you can count on when it comes to non-work related things? Do you hang out outside of work? Do you see him as a friend more than a boss? If so, then send an invite.
If not, as those Disney princesses would say, let it goooo let it go 😊
I’m not inviting mine, and my ex boss who’s a friend is also not invited because we are only inviting the very close friends - like childhood ones really. If I had a bigger budget I would invite my former boss because he was like a mentour and we became close, my current boss I want as a professional relationship and that’s all so he would be getting an excuse instead.
Im inviting mine. Shes adamant about knowing what im wearing. What the centerpieces look like. Blah blah. I've shared a little but i tell her she has to wait & see just like everyone else. Ive worked there for 10 years come Sept. My wedding month so.....idk i guess it just really depends on the relationship you have w them.....
I'm inviting many in my office, but not all. I figurred it I wasn't comfortable asking for your address then you were not to be invitees. Including my BIG boss but not my actual supervisor/boss, she will attend and I know she was counting on it.
We are not inviting anyone from work. A good guideline is to only invite those co-workers with whom you have a social relationship outside work. If you wouldn't otherwise see them in a social situation, why would you invite them to your wedding?
I invited my bosses, they're great people, and it wouldn't have felt right not inviting them. My prior bosses, nope, didn't invite them. I had to go to therapy because of them; I developed social anxiety because of them .
I’m a teacher so I don’t really have a “boss” but my department chair is officiating our wedding
My principal has asked me multiple times about the wedding and is trying to basically invite himself (he offered to pay for him and his wife’s plates after asking me how much I’m paying). He tried to guilt me into inviting him by saying “back in my day we always invited our bosses”. It’s all very weird.
I would say invite them if you are close to them, but don’t feel obligated.

Thank you! I’m not close with him and I feel like he was fishing to see if he was invited or not. I don’t talk to him outside of work but when I see him at work I say hi it’s more professional type feel relationship I guess I would call it, I just felt awkward because when’re I work is small but I guess who cares we’re not close?
