My fiancé and I invited his co-workers and owners of his company to our wedding. He work(ed)
for a small-ish family run technology company. His only boss(es) are / were the owners of the
company. A few other coworkers whom he is more friendly with are also invited to the wedding.
The issue is the fact that he was laid off from work this past week. The total number of family
members that are invited to the wedding is 7 people including all spouses, all who have already
given wedding shower gifts and RSVP-ed yes to the wedding. He was let go of because of lack
of work, not fired. They actually pitched him other jobs he should apply for. A demotion and part
time position was offered to him. All of this occurred just barely over 30 days away from the
wedding, which they are all fully aware of. My fiancé is hurt by this and feels that him being laid
off is a very derogatory move on the family’s end and feels as if seeing them on our wedding day
is only going to cause anger and frustration for him. He would like to somehow, ‘respectfully,’
un-invite them from the wedding but we are unsure of how to proceed from here (Wedding gifts,
all of them already RSVP-ing ‘yes’ to the wedding, etc). Advise would be greatly appreciated.
