Should I invite my boss to my wedding??

any suggestions? I see him once, maybe twice, a month so don't know. What about his brother, who is technically my boss also, but I only see about twice or three times a year. I've invited my manager.No idea what to do. One of my collegues suggested I invite them for etiquette... What do you think?

Ohh tough one! Do you think he's going to accept? and do you mind an extra 2 or 4 people coming?

You're never going insult someone by inviting them, but if you don't it can be seen as a slight against them. I think that if you can afford it or if you're pretty sure they'll gracefully decline then yes I'd invite them.

Thanks PennyL, yeah, I think I agree. I don't know if they'll come or not but maybe it's better to invite and not insult than to not invite and insult. I get on fairly well with him (as well as one can over the phone and only seeing him once a month) ;~) by AineM 2 years 9 months ago

My thoughts would be no, unless you think hes expecting to be invited AND you can afford it. I know for me its been a minefield trying to keep numbers down and not stepping on anyones toes!!!!

How many people are in the company? If its a big one then Id defo say no.

No, it's just a few shops dotted around the country but the head office is in Galway (I'm in KK). There aren't a lot of staff and I've invited all my shop coworkers (they'll have to fight amongst themselves for the day off ;~) ) but the bosses are the only ones I've contact with outside of our shop. Don't know what to do, might do as Penny L said and invite them, better not insult them... But then, I don't know if they'd be even bothered.. by AineM 2 years 9 months ago

I got the same problem, and at the moment I think I won't but my whole team is expecting invitation for evening do but I am new in this team and they are very nice to me so in the end it will upset me if any of them turn up and be hypocritical so if you get on well with your boss I'd say invite your boss but dont feel you have to xx

Thanks Lysblanc, gee you've a tough one too, being new into a team. I've invited all my coworkers (all 5 of them!) to the full thing and am going to let them sort it out amongst themselves who gets the day off to come. I know the boss likes KK but don't know if he'd be that bothered about coming down but like PennyL said, don't want to insult them either. Need to make a decision soon, invites going out today... by AineM 2 years 9 months ago

Thanks Brazenhussie (what a great name!), I don't know if the afters is an option as they are based in Galway and the wedding is in Kilkenny. I could invite them to the whole thing and if they only made the afters that could be ok too. My H2B can't understand cos all along I've said I'd invite them but now that we're down to it and doing the invites I'm stuck... by AineM 2 years 9 months ago

Have a good think about it. I felt under pressure to invite my boss cos I wanted to invite 1 or 2 people at work as well. after inviting him he handed in his notice a few weeks later, still came to the wedding, didn't give a present and I haven't seen him since!! If I had my time over i'd have invited him to the afters. Depends on how your numbers are going but don't feel under pressure.

Thanks Tess, your ex boss was some piece of work wasn't he? Imagine coming anyway to the wedding and empty handed at that, cheeky fecker! Not that I'd be expecting them to bring anything (better throw that in!). Just want to be clear on what's expected of me. Part of me thinks I should invite them so they'll understand when I take a week off for the wedding and then another two weeks off for the honeymoon. by AineM 2 years 9 months ago

hi, just a quick update. Did invite the two bosses to the afters. The one I know best emailed me to thank me for invite, politely decline and wished me all the best on the day and forever. Not a peep from the other guy. At least I've covered myself... Only 10 days to go... Getting nervous!
