Help! I am having trouble deciding if I should invite my work group to my wedding. I planned on inviting them when my fiance and I first setup our guest list because we were the only 5 people from the department working in the building so we talked a lot. However, a few months ago the rest of our department (25 people) moved into our building (I work for a big company that is consolidating buildings, and our group was working in different building then the other groups.) Now that the rest of the department is here we do not talk to each other about non-work related stuff nearly as much. I would still like to invite my manager, but if I only invite her she will only know two other people there (2 of my friend from different departments in the company; who both know a handful of other people that will be there.) I feel like I should invite the rest of the group so she isn't by herself. I would kind like them to be there, but I guess the part I'm having a hard time with is pay for their dates (its $95 a plate); one is married but the other two are single and are not dating anyone (and either is my manager)... Is it rude to just invite them without guests? But what do I do with the married one? If I invite one with a guest, don't I have to invite all with a guest. I know another girl from work that only invited the work people, without guests, even though most of them were married or in serious relationships... my fiance thinks this is poor etiquette... Any thoughts? Oh the politics of wedding planning!
Thanks for any help you can give!
(PS I don't think any of them would be offended if I didn't invite them)
