Are people specifically asking if they can come to the wedding?

I believe that saying something along the lines of “we are having a small wedding with just family” is fine.

A reception is what you do to thank people for coming to your ceremony.  If your parents and a few close friends join you, then a nice dinner with just them afterwards is your reception.  No harm, no foul, and certainly no breech of etiquette.  You’ll only run into issues if you have a wedding ceremony with NO sort of reception at all.  Or, if you already sent out Save-The-Date Cards or invitations… it’s a bit trickier then.
