In a similar situation, except our not wanting to wait is due to already having a baby together and wanting to make it official without all the fuss. Plus, we’re totally introverted!

@Bubblesmcgee:  How wonderful!  You are so loved! I’m sure that other family and friends will understand. Send them an announcement with a lovely photo.

Hey there!

We are in a very similar situation with a small wedding and people feeling slightly hurt. I’ve been contacting those who would have expected to be invited to a “normal” wedding and explainining that while they are dear to us we are only inviting our parents, siblings, and one friend each. I’ve explained our reasoning and they have all been supportive. I’ve either met with them in person or had the conversation with them over the phone. 

Good Luck!
