Is there a reason you aren’t telling people you’re getting married?  If someone called me out of the blue and said they just got married, I’d probably think it was a joke.  Once I realized it wasn’t a joke, I’d be upset that you didn’t include me.

You could send a wedding announcement to the people who don’t live close just to let them know.  Most stationary sites will have a design for them and you can personalize them with a photo from your ceremony, maybe!

I agree with @abbie017.  Is there a reason why you don’t want to tell your close family and friends before hand?  If you think they’ll be supportive if you call them right after you tie the knot, I’m sure they’d be supportive beforehand too!  

If you still prefer not to tell them, I would invite everyone to a dinner that evening a few weeks beforehand.  Maybe send invites or call everyone personally so that they know their attendance is important to you.  Don’t be surprised if people can’t make it though – since they don’t know it’s your wedding celebration, you can’t hold it against them.  I also wouldn’t be surprised if not everyone is ecstatic immediately after your announcement.

For the out of towners, I agree a wedding announcement in the mail or a video online would be a fun announcement.
