Wedding Woes

Private Ceremony

My fiance & I have approx 140 people on our wedding guestlist. Lately we've been discussing the idea of having a private ceremony - bridal party, sibling, parents & grandparents - and then inviting everyone to the reception afterwards. We both have bad anxiety and the idea of having our ceremony in front of 140 people is already stressing us out (we still have 9 months until the wedding!). We both want a small, more intimate ceremony so that we can fully enjoy it. What are everyone's thoughts on a private ceremony with a big reception? Is it a good idea? bad idea? offensive? perfectly acceptable? ... We're going to discuss the same with our parents in a few weeks and I want some feedback on possible guest reactions!! Thanks so much :)
