Q: We have a work colleague who is getting married in a month. She is not throwing any special party at work, nor is she inviting anybody from her immediate work team. Is it proper etiquette that we buy her a present and have a small work party during lunch? Also somebody is suggesting that we send her flowers from the company, is this appropriate?
A: Sure! It is very nice for co-workers to celebrate occasions in the life of a colleague, with no expectation of an invitation or of being included in the actual wedding day.
