if you/he are friends with outside of work, i would consider them friends (and more than just coworkers).  so yes, you can invite your friends and not all your coworkers.

i didn’t invite anyone from work.  but my husband had 3 coworkers there, one was a groomsman, who he knew from childhood.

It’s fine to invite some co-workers and not others, especially when there is such a clear divining line (i.e. co-workers you were friends with before ever working together or you hang out with them separately from any type of gathering with other co-workers). 

As for inviting all of your FI’s co-workers, I don’t think it’s necessarily gift-grabby if they are all pretty close and frequently get together outside of work. If you want to invite them then you should.

I say invite them so there’s no drama in the office, but know that probably only a couple will actually travel to come. win-win.

natalieannette :  I’m inviting my immediate coworkers, but not my whole department. I work in the IT departmnet, and am only inviting my coworkers that work in the same office as me (developers as oppossed to our security and networking guys). I like them all, but I’m only close with the 5 guys I immediately work with. I’d say invite who you want to invite. I’m sure most people will understand especially since it’s not a local wedding.
