Maybe a clear message.,...

Sounds like a clear message alright "we are thoughtless wanks".

My husband worked at a company where one of his colleagues was marrying one of the directors. 500 guests at $200 a head at the Opera House in Sydney (thats $100,000 JUST for the reception). No invite, but we dont really care cos all they'd get off us is a toaster or something useless.

Well, I think it's rude seeing as how they have invited the population of a small country already, and money does not seem to be an issue. Even more so since you have made monetary contributions to celebrate things for them.

I know that in my own case, my fiance and I are trying to keep the list to a minimum since we only really can afford around 175 guests. While I would like to invite some of my co-workers, I dont know if I will invite anyone, because I dont want hurt feelings. It's a tough decision! I say ALL or none.

Look at it this way. Any wedding w/ 553 people at it will suck.

I went to a very nice wedding this weekend. 50 People, on a lake in Canada. Tables, a tent, music, food and booze. Probably cost them $3,000 or $4,000. People that spend $100,000 and have 500 people at a wedding are king-pricks.

I would be both very hurt and very relieved simultaneously. I wouldn't want to go the wedding, but I'd want to be invited if everyone else was. In an office that small, you either invite everyone (as one of my colleagues did) or no one (as another one of my colleagues did). So I have to say your boss is kind of an ass.

Kind of reminds me of years ago when my boss decided to quit and he called a meeting where he made this announcement to the whole staff except for me and like one other person, and we ended up hearing about it from people in the bathroom after the meeting. I marched right into his office and had some kind of embarrassing hissy fit.
