I’d suck it up and invite them all. You work with these ppl and they have the potential to make you miserable. Maybe they won’t show up, but if you don’t invite them it could have backlash.

I doubt they’d all come anyway. But they would feel obligated to gift 🙂

I’d probably invite them all to avoid drama at work.

I agree with PP that you should invite all or nothing. Our hierarchy is somewhat like yours, though unlike you, I actually like the people at the top/midlevel and they did not invite themselves (and were very honored that I invited them!). If your director is already expecting to come, it’s a little late to be like “whoops!” unless you’ve been emphasizing that it is VERY small and selective to begin with, which it doesn’t sound like you have.

Chances are the people that don’t like you won’t come and may gracefully excuse themselves and the people you like will come and be happy. I’ve been invited by colleagues to personal functions and for the ones I didn’t really care for, I usually made up a believable excuse for not attending since I knew it was an obligation-type invite and I didn’t see it necessary for both of us to pretend it’s not that.
