You know, I can understand your angst about it but as far as my guest list is concerned there are only a certain amount of people that can be invited, right?  So those that aren’t are going to have to understand.  If you’re not that close to them, don’t invite them.

Well, you obviously don’t have to invite them just because they hang out with you. Friends who you aren’t close with come and go and wouldn’t it be awkward if they stopped hanging out with your group once you decided to invite them? Honestly, you are having a small wedding so it might even make THEM feel awkward being invited to such a private intimate event. I say don’t invite them and don’t feel bad about it. If it’s ever brought up, just say that you are having (had) a small wedding and while you wished you could invite everyone it just wasn’t possible.

It would be so much easier if we could just control other people’s reactions to these sorts of things.  Sadly (so sadly), this is not the case.  I think you ought to ivite those to whom you are close, and be prepared to explain (repeatedly, if necessary) that it simply wasn’t in your budget to include everyone you might’ve liked.  If your friends are mature, they’ll understand.
