i’m a nurse in a rather large pediatric clinic. i work with 11-15 other nurses throughout the week. since we all pretty much get along and are such a great team, i’ve invited all of them. but i’m debating how to invite any or some or all of the doctors that are primarily at my site. we have a great work partnership with them and are good friends and a close group, some more than others. do i invite them? if so, with spouses? for my other co-workers, i am only inviting them and not “plus one”. thoughts???

That’s a tough one. First I would say, that I don’t like the idea of no +1, if your co-workers have spouses and LTRs. Have you spoken to them and they’ve agreed they’re fine with no guests? If so then who am I to dispute? And why tell the nurses no +1, but consider allowing the docs to bring +1s?
As for doctors, how many? I also wouldn’t invite them without spouses. ANd I wouldn’t invite just some of them, unless there was just one or two docs out of like 10 who supervise you. (???) If you work with them all, I’d invite all or none.

You should probably pick a “rule” and apply it to all your coworkers, nurses, and doctors to make things fair and avoid hard feelings. Either allow all of them to bring a +1, or none of them.
If you decide not to let them bring a +1, that’s OK, and it’s not unheard of when it comes to inviting coworkers. You may have one or two who’ll decline if they can’t bring their spouse, but most people will understand the limitations of budget and space. If you’re assigning tables, make sure you have all your coworkers sit together, since they probably don’t know most of your family and the other guests at the wedding, and you wouldn’t want anyone finding themself alone in a crowd so to speak.
