@sarahroby:  Wait, you want to invite some guests to the ceremony but not to the reception?

@sarahroby:  In places where this is common, I believe they just post an announcement in the bulletin or on some kind of announcements board in the church. You don’t send actual invites because that’s more formal and implies they are invited to the entire thing.

I would just put an announcement in your bulletin.

I agree with the PPs. If the ceremony is in the church I would just post something or ask your pastor to announce it. I wouldn’t personally invite anyone because then they’d wonder about the reception.

An announcement in the bulletin is a great idea, and the most proper so that there is no confusion.   Actually, since a wedding ceremony in a church is a church service, the congregation could show up anyway if they wanted to!  Although, most people would have the good manners not to show up unless invited.

@sarahroby:  i agree with pp.  no formal invites are necessary for ceremony only.
