Re: ceremony opinion

    That's a tough one. I would start letting your friends know now (without mentioning the shower) that you're having a very small intimate ceremony with just family and then a larger reception after. Then let your friends make the decision if they'll still host a shower for you.

    If you are having a truly private ceremony, and it sounds like you are, it is fine to have a shower and invite people who are invited to the reception.  What you generally see is people having a 50~75 person ceremony and then a ~150 person reception (or worse a 75 person ceremony and dinner then a 150 person "dance") which isn't the same thing at all - that's when it's terribly rude to hold a shower.

    That said, I would inform your friends wishing to hold the shower of your plan sooner rather than later to prevent any hurt feelings.
