            I’m not the person to be asking about wording but here are a couple ideas if you haven’t already done so for your website which might get people interested in your ceremony: 

-Post Picture of ceremony location
-List Fun Facts/ Information about Church 
-Include why you and your fi chose to get married in this church and what it means to you (whether its separate or as a couple, did your parents/his parents get married there etc) 
-Expected length of ceremony – if its a shorter ceremony, usually gets more guests to come out 
-Are you including any guest participation elements to your ceremony such as prayers/ring warming ceremony etc

Some people are dicks and they will always be dicks. If they don’t come to your ceremony don’t make them the focus of your reception….spend the time with the people who really care…..snub the people who don’t. That’s right, I said it…..meow!

I agree with you. I think it’s incredibly rude that people would not show up to the ceremony (especially since the reception is like a thank you for guests attending your wedding). But I really don’t think you can do anything other than send out the invitations. If people are going to be rude, they’re going to be rude.
