A hand-written note is the most unequivocal way of letting people know that they are among an elite hand-picked few, and natural wording written the way you normally write is the surest way of expressing your true self. The fact that the natural hand-written informal note is also the most traditional proper form for a small informal wedding is just an added benefit. So you would write

Dear Auntie Aspasia,

George and I are getting married on (date), and you are one of the few special people we would like to have at the wedding. It will be out of doors, under the gazebo at (location ), starting at about (time). We’ll finish up with a tea reception/dinner-dance/grand luau with karaoke water-skiing/whatever at (reception site) from (start-time) to (end-time). Please let us know whether you can be present.

I think the personalised letter aswell. Or you could hold a dinner with the invited group and announce it at the dinner. With little invites to take home. A little speech about how you are only inviting those in the room as they are special yada yada yada

For my 15 people wedding; I just did a STD. Honestly those coming knew and knew our reasons for a small wedding. I just put the ceremony information on the front and on the back I let them know about the weekends accommodations, and etc.
