@jessyrez:  no, no, no!

Can you have a surprise engagement party? Invite everyone over for a BBQ or something and announce it? Then the word can be spread that your actual wedding will be very small.

I think it sounds rude, quite honestly.

There is no nice way to say, “YAY WE’RE GETTING MARRIED and you’re not invited”.

@jessyrez:  I feel like we JUST had a thread with the SAME issue.  I think the consensus was that you just don’t say anything, they’ll understand when they’re not invited, and to send a wedding announcement AFTER you’re married that you’ve gotten married.  People will just have to understand.

Just send an announcement after the wedding.  If anybody asks why they weren’t invited, just say that it was an intimate wedding with your closest family.

@jessyrez:  Bad fiance! haha That is a terrible idea & can be very hurtful.  May I suggest an alternative?  How about AFTER you are married, you send everyone you wanted to invite to your wedding but couldn’t a wedding announcement.  It can be done in a very simple note card way OR if you want to be uber creative and are willing to spend a little money you can burn dvd’s of the wedding ceremony and send it to the folks you wish you could have invited with a note explaining that although you are saddened that you were unable to invite them to the wedding due to financial constraints (or whatever) you still want them to share in this joyous occassion.
