Honestly, there is no good way – no matter what you are rubbing it in their faces that they are not invited to the wedding. And you can’t invite people who aren’t invited to the wedding to pre-wedding celebratory events.

I don’t really know the situation but you still have a lot of time, can you find another venue so that you can have all the people you want to share your day with you?

Get used to telling people that you and your FI decided to – or are having – a small wedding.  That’s all you have to say.  Practice in front of a mirror.  People who are not that close to you won’t expect to be included in a small wedding.  You don’t have to tell them you don’t have a lot of family… or go into any other sort of explanation.

I used the birthday rule.  If I knew and celebrated your birthday – you were close enough of a friend that I’d invite.  If I knew and didn’t celebrate your bday – you were probably cut.  I’m a big bday person/celebrator, so this worked for me…. hope it’s helpful for you!
