I work in an office with only five other people, and my wedding has been a major topic of conversation over the past year. Do I have to invite everyone, or just my boss?

Keeping the guest count under control is a challenge for every bride. If you worked in a much larger office or had been tight-lipped about your plans, you could get away with just inviting your boss (or in a big company, just your department). But think about it: How would you feel if your co-workers had been talking about a party for a year-and then didn't invite you? Same holds true here. Because you've been chatting up your wedding, and because you're part of such a small staff, you've got to invite the whole crew. Five people isn't that many in the whole scheme of things. One way you can keep a lid on the number is to only invite escorts for single guests who are in long-term relationships.
