We have chosen a small venue (second wedding for both of us) - 45 guests max. At my first wedding, I had over 140 guests. I will not be able to (nor do I want to) invite that many people. What is a good way to announce/broach this subject with friends and distant family who will not be invited? Should I tell them now, before they hear about the date/venue through the grapevine?
I'm also very active on Facebook and while I have posted no wedding details there, people are still posting, asking when it's happening - people that I'm not planning to invite. I was thinking about making a general post about how we have a date and we're excited, and it's going to be very small and family-focused - bad idea?
All help appreciated! Thank you!!
