Wedding Etiquette

ok here is the question. well let me start with background first.

i work in a small regional office here in Atlanta that has a total of 12 employees who are all considered to be pretty close in working and personal relationships. Two of my colleagues will be getting married this weekend. The groom is the CEO of my company and the bride is in the same position that i am in. they have 553 guests who have RSVP for their wedding. and only a select group of people from my regional office, excluding me and 2 other colleagues have been invited to the wedding. needless to say we are a little hurt by being snubbed specially since we threw them a party a mth ago to celebrate their engagement. well now i find out colleagues that work in different offices out side of this state and some from the Netherlands, which are from our parent company will be flying in for the wedding. so now i am wondering, if you work in a small regional office who seems to do a lot of things together, wouldn't you have invited all of your colleagues? now i along with my other colleagues *oh and the other one who did not get the invite is the brides assistant here in the office* feelings are a bit brused specially since we all thought we got along well. *wants to take present back*

I think this is horribly inappropriate.

I feel for you, but if it is your boss it will be hard to deal with. I would have to say something to him, and when he gets back I would ask him how his wedding was in the most deliberatly overly-friendly way I can. He will get the point you are hurt.

Not two hours ago I got a phone call from a friend telling me he and his fiancee could not attend my wedding because the are going to a different friend's wedding the same day.

I had just spent $300.00 at his bachelor party last weekend.

I told him I was upset.

He can go suck an ass along with your boss, some people are sooooo inappropriate when it comes to this shit.

BTW: did you get the invite to my wedding?


(that was meant to at least bring a smile to your face...)

i got your invite. lol

yeah i along with my other colleagues thought this was just rude. they can't even use the excuse "they have no money" because he is the president and CEO of the Company and have blocked out most of the Four Seasons Hotel for Guests.

seriously i think it is rude. and i will remember this for the future.

Very wrong. To exclude 3 out of 12 employees is extremely poor judgment.

chances are....

It was probably an oversight if only two did not make the list. Weddings are very expensive when trying to pay for the meals for all who will rsvp and small details are sometimes lost in the process.

Could you have somehow forgotten to update your change of address at your office?

I would wish them well at the least and let them know somehow that you did not appear on that list though you did send them a token...lol...or make a wedding date with someone who did...and fyi...when they do the thank-you cards their oversight will become apparent. It might not have been intentional at all.

nah it was intentional. they have my home address because i received a thank you card for the wedding gift i gave them a few weeks ago.

yes weddings are expensive, however when you already have 550 people coming to it and have rented out half of a 5 star hotel and ballroom at a luxury conference center it means they have the $$$. if they didn't i would be worried because he is the Pres. of my company.

Did you give them a wedding gift because you want to be on that wedding party ? And just ask the couple the reason, if it bothers you.

I would not want to be on a wedding where i am not welcome anyway .
