Quick Tip: Who is invited from work?

Since one of the first things all you newly engaged couples should do is start working on your guest list, I thought this quick tip was especially timely.

One of my most asked questions with regard to the guest list is “Who do we invite from work?”  Usually it is a matter of the bride and groom feeling that if they invite one or two people, they will have to invite everyone in their office.  Well, I give you permission to let that feeling go!

The rule of thumb I share with my clients is that if you have had a coworker over to dinner or have been to their house for dinner (or have spent a significant time with them outside of work) then they likely belong on the guest list.  Everyone else is a “nice to include.”  Really.  I know that some of you are likely sitting there thinking I am crazy but unless you have enough room, you have to draw the line somewhere.  Co-workers who you don’t really care for is a great place to start.

The exception to this would be bosses who should generally be invited even if you’ve never gone to dinner with them or seen the inside of their house.
