Many people do this. A good friend of mine did. I think the trick is to have a clear deliniation of who is invited to the ceremony and who is not, and then stick to your guns. Emphasizing that it is "small and private" helps smooth ruffled feathers. A lot depends on your family, though, on whether they would be offended at not being invited to the ceremony. Is there a long history of every last family member being invited to other weddings in your famliy?

You might also want to have a smaller reception immediately after your wedding ceremony so that people have a chance to chat with you and congratulate you.
