Sounds like you have had a rough go… I might recommend a very small wedding or elopement and leave many (if all) the naysayers out of the planning mix.  If you take control and financially cover the costs on your own, this often gives you a little more footing to stand on your own and do things your way.  

Good luck!

I agree. Take the stress out of things and elope. You definitely don’t have to keep your huge original guest list.

how about splitting the “wedding ceremony” and the reception.  Small intimate wedding and then a party to celebration your new health, new committment with those that support you?

Are both of your parents helping to pay for the wedding? If not, simply tell them you can’t afford to pay for their “required” guests. If they are helping, then tell them you do not want a big wedding this time around. You want to focus on your renewed relationship and the marriage, not the crazyness of planning a huge wedding again. 

I like the PP’s suggestion of eloping, or of having a small intimate wedding, and having a big party seperately. That way you can get away with have the best of both worlds and everyone can be happy.

I would assume that everyone who got an invite before would expect another one. Did you recieve gifts before? did you send them back? If gifts were sent, I would find it really off if you didnt invite those persons again. Feelings will be hurt if everyone is not invited but you have to do what is right for you. Elope, it sounds like the best option

I also agree I think leave all the stress and the disapproving looks behind and do a romantic dw and honeymoon just for the two of you!!
