    The beginning part sounds…not so great. The “early family celebration” part is nice, but the beginning sounds like it could be interpreted as a little mean or harsh, even though it wasn’t intended to be. I am in the same situation right now too, having a small wedding but a party BEFORE, not after. I can’t figure out the wording either and may borrow your latter part for my own 🙂

    I haven’t had experience with wording invitations yet but maybe word it like:

    ‘ Although we are having a small ceremony, we would love for you to join us in an early family celebration”

    I get that it’s at your family’s request, but it sounds incredibly rude to be and I would be offended to receive it.  

    I would not mention anything about not inviting these people to the wedding in the invitation.  But, to be perfectly honest, if I were invited to an engagement party and not a wedding, I’d be pretty miffed.
