@MsGinkgo:  be honest and tell them that you really wish you could invite everyone but due to budget you need to keep things smaller.

“We wanted a smaller wedding.” and done.  No letting them drag you into a longer conversation.

@MsGinkgo:  then say something like you both have large families and not everyone can be invited.

Why not be honest?  We also had a small wedding and we just told people the truth.  “Unfortunately we just can’t invite everyone, we decided to have a really small wedding and keep it to just our immediate family and best friends.”

Just be honest.  People get excited about weddings regardless of whether they are invited and they were probably just genuinely curious and excited for you.
