Inviting Co-Workers to the wedding

I work in a smaller office mainly dominated by women with "various" personalities.  I have two women co-workers that I get along quite well with and two co-workers that pretty much talk about me behind my back and are extremely rude on a daily basis.
I guess my question is should I invite these "rude" co-workers to my wedding to avoid anyother work drama or say forget it because I don't like either of them anyway?  I don't want to create any more tension within an office dominated by tension, but I don't want to invite someone that I don't really want there.  Any suggestions would be very helpful!

Re: Inviting Co-Workers to the wedding

  • I wouldn't invite them. Don't let people pressure you into doing something you don't want to do, especially on your big day (It's all about you and your FI). There are many people from my job that want to come just to bad mouth me and the whole event later. Something I realized, some people want to come to a wedding just to have something to talk about. If you wouldn't invite them to dinner, why invite them to the biggest day of your life?

  • I am only inviting a few people I work with.  I know people will be upset they are not invited but I do not care. 
  • I would say not to invite the rude ones, but at the same time... I did what Britt did and invited them all, just because my wedding is OOT and I know only the ones I want to be there will be there.
    That said, we recently had a few more people start working on my team, and I have just decided to not invite them, because I can't add more to my list. I figure no one will mind anyways.

  • If you invite the rude ones, you may need to talk to someone.  LOL.  That doesn't make sense to me.  Why would you entertain the idea of people that crap on you being at your wedding?

    As for the ones that you DO invite, do not talk about the wedding in front of the others, no matter how rude they are to you.  Leave the wedding talk away from work.

    Let me ask you a question. If you're allergic to something, would you go anywhere near it? Hopefully you'll say no. Treat these rude co-workers like your allergies. You know they're bad for you, so just stay away from them.

  • Thanks so much for all of you input ladies.  I only invited three women that I work closely with and do see occasionally outside of work (one being my boss).  I slipped the wedding invites in with other work I had to distribute throughout the office and put invites on peoples chairs out of site.  I never mentioned to the other two I even had the invites done and didn't bring up one word about the wedding.

    I feel so much better now

    Thanks :)

  • I work with a pretty small amount of people. Most of them women. I invited the ones I feel close to who I would actually want around outside work. :) The others oops! Too bad. 

    I just don't talk about wedding things with those who aren't invited unless they directly ask and I can't get out of it.
