First of all, I'm getting married in England where all my family and friends are. But I work in the US (I'm a teacher.) I got engaged on the last day of school in June and I haven't seen any of my coworkers since then. I know that when I return in August, many of them will be curious about the wedding and some may expect invitations.
I was originally thinking I wouldn't invite anyone from work. But when I think about it, there are certain teachers who I work very closely with and we share a lot of our personal lives too, and I think they would be hurt not to be asked. If I start inviting some, not others, it becomes messy.
My question is, do you think it would be appropriate to post a save-the-date in the teachers' room and give everybody an open invitation that way? I'm pretty sure not many people would make the trip to England, but that way everyone would feel invited. If we did that, what would happen when we come to writing actual invitations? And what if, by some chance, more people decide to accept than we can accommodate? Help!
