The jam of whether to invite your colleagues to your wedding

The jam of whether to invite your colleagues to your wedding

It is said to be the most anticipated day for most people - insert the clichés of every girl dreaming of the day they walk down the aisle towards the love of their life.

If you are a fan of the popular sitcom ‘The Office’, you will remember the day the whole office attended the wedding of Jim and Pam. Everyone in the building from the notoriously problematic boss Michael all the way down to the socially awkward Dwight. 

Unfortunately, life is not a sitcom or a television show and the decision of whom to invite and who not to can be very complicated. The wedding guest list is always a hotly debated topic with a lot of couples, primarily because weddings cost a lot of money. So, you want to make sure that those who are in attendance are those people that you really want to have at your wedding. 

The family list can easily be decided on, friends, too, but when it comes to your colleagues, there are a lot of things to consider.

Let’s be honest, most of us spend almost eight hours and change with our co-workers, and as such we develop bonds with them. 

Another dilemma that arises from this decision is how do you break the news to the colleagues who didn’t make the cut? Could it be best to just completely leave out people from work altogether?

These are the questions that Stacey and JSbu posed to KZN after they had a discussion off-air with regards to what would happen if one of them were to get married. The team was pondering whether or not they would invite each other to their weddings.

But, KZN, we want to hear from you, should you invite your co-workers to your wedding?

Listen to the podcast to hear what KZN had to say.
