Inviting co-workers?

I work in a small business, with around 150 total employees. As a management level employee I have contact with a number of employees, most of which are twice my age, but due to budget restraints, I can't invite them all. How do you choose which employees to invite? Only those you are friends with? Those you work closely with? Taking into consideration they will all want to bring guests, how do you limit the invites?

    I've never been in any co-worker's house, never been out with them socially - neither has DH, so we didn't invite anyone from either of our workplaces.  I agree with Panda:  people mix up work relationships with friendships too often.

    [QUOTE]It means I don't "hang out" with any of them, as most of them are married with children my age. I speak to about a dozen of them daily, and have traveled for work with them, but we don't spend time away from work together.

    If I were you, I wouldn't invite them.

    I had work friends there, but my music department was super close and we hung out a lot outside of school.

    I am inviting five people (coworkers) to our reception when we get home from our Destination Wedding. I thought about inviting nearly everyone in our thirty person company, but then thought "why"? The majority would be coming out of a sense of obligation, and who wants that?
