Wedding Invitations & Paper

announcements vs. invitation

we are planning a small (budget) ceremony with only immediate family and close friends but dont want to leave out other friends/family completely. I thought about sending announcements and invitations out at the same time(the time when invitations go out) but sending announcements to distant relatives/friends to at least acknowledge them, and then send actualy invites to those close friends/family that we really wish to be there... is this rude?
(distant family meaning i may see them at christmas time but doesnt have an impact on our daily lives)
