All you need to say is what you’ve said here: “We’re having a very small wedding.” That’s what I tell people and I haven’t heard any complaints.

I agree, just be honest with them and tell them you are keeping it small.

I would just say you are having a small wedding period and are only inviting family and close friends. I am also having a small wedding but a big reception. I can only fit 82 people in the church we are getting married in. Just my two cents. Remember this is your day and you should only worry about making yourself and hubby to be happy. I know easier said then done! Good Luck and I’m sure it will all work out!

Yea, don’t feel like a bridezilla. If you don’t want tons of people to come that’s fine. Just say you haven’t finalized your guest list yet, but it will be very small. I actually just e-mailed people for their addresses (old college friends) and told them when and where my wedding would be. I asked if they would be in town then (some of them go overseas or have plans during the summer) so I could weed them out. I felt bad doing it, but if I don’t need to send an invitation then I’m not going to. I don’t care about them sending a present or whatever, I just don’t want to invite people who already know they will be busy.

LOL – that is SO not bridezilla. I was expecting something harsh. No, these people are being sorta rude inviting themselves or implying that they will get an invite. Just say what the PPs have suggested, make your list who you and FI want to be there, and send out invites to those. 🙂 Simple.
