Gently tell people they aren't invited?

I, personally, would keep the wedding on the DL and really only provide details to people that are invited. For the pondering minds that assume they're on the guest list, I would tactfully let them know that you plan to have a private/intimate ceremony because it is so personal to you and that you would love to celebrate with everyone upon your return home.
I would avoid disclosing who is and who is not invited because it could hurt uncle bob's feelings that your best friend from childhood is invited to the nuptuals and he's not.

If it's a big problem, you could send out AHR invites or save the dates really early so that people know they're not invited (but at the same time are getting invited to something wedding related, thus making it less offensive).
Generally with wedding etiquette, it seems like most things are better when they don't come directly from the mouth of the bride, so talk to those close to you and hopefully they can help spread the word that its a super small wedding.

I also agree with Celina many people may say their coming and then for various reasons back out!
I'm still trying to figure how I'm going to address my situation because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings but I also know who I want there as well as who I can depend on to be there so I'm not gonna stress, after all it's our big day!
