My fiance and I are getting married this August and we just made this decision last week. We decided to keep the amount of people invited to the ceremony and dinner afterwards extremely small (10-20 people) and they are all very close family and friends.
My question is...are invitations necessary if everyone is reachable by phone or e-mail? If they are necessary, how would the wording go for a small and intimate wedding, so I don't give anyone the wrong impression or make anyone upset that I didn't invite other people (extended family)??
