I wouldn’t invite anyone to the shower or bachelorette if they’re not coming to the wedding.  (If someone wanted to orgaize a work-shower for you, that would be one thing.)  And I wouldn’t invite anyone to half the reception.

I know I’m also worried about where to draw the line in the sand with colleagues.  I’ve decided that anyone I’ve hung out with outside of work is invited, and the people I like and wish we hung out with don’t get invites.

If you want to do something to celebrate with everyone, maybe you could consider a casual night out or cocktail party to celebrate with the entire company, and make it clear that you don’t want gifts.  (Maybe sending an evite would be a good "casual" sign.) 

Good luck!

Oh, I feel for you.  Can you just cut it off at the managers and president, no employees?  I think that solution is still more than you were thinking, but I’m a big fan of inviting all people of the same status, whether it’s family, work, friends etc.  But ifthat doens’t work, just try to think it through sincerely, and do your best.
