I started really early, like way before we even got engaged, that we would be having a small wedding consisting of our family and closest friends when the time came.  It helped me to get it out there as early as possible so people would know.  Just be honest!  People have to respect your wishes for a small wedding.  I’m sure I hurt some people’s feelings, and probably still will as we are now engaged and planning but this OUR day and WE get to choose who we want to spend it with.

All you have to do is say it’s a small gathering of friends and family and you couldn’t accomodate everyone you’d want to be there, but you appreciate their excitement for your marriage.

I’d go a step further and say it is a “mostly family wedding”. Someone could theoretically take offense to being told they didn’t make it to the “close friends” group, but nobody can argue that they are family (or be upset at you for only/mostly inviting family)
