Definitely don’t send invitations out in rounds or with differing information. Invitations get mixed up and big families talk. Someone will inevitably get the wrong response card or tell someone with different information what date thiers says. They’ll find it patronizing to have to send their response back earlier. Or they’ll panic thinking they were left off the invite list when they hear of everyone else getting invitations and they haven’t yet. 

Virtually everyone faces the problem of how to invite people last minute after declines. Unfortunately there’s no magic answer. If I were you, I’d set your response date for a month before the wedding, which is probably still too early, but hey. Then I’d be honest with your B-listers that they’re on the second round and you’ll let them know as early as possible. B-Listing will get you into trouble on the Bee, but I think it’s fine so long as you’re honest.

If the family and friends you sent out STDs to live far away, I’d just go ahead and send out invites to your B listers. I mean, not everyone does a STD and honestly I wouldn’t think it wierd to just recieve an invitation. I’ve gone to weddings where I recieved an email invitation a week before the event. No big deal – I had never met the bride, was going to school with the groom, so it’s like I expected to be on their priority list (or hell even invited). But it was nice to go and celebrate with them anyways. I wasn’t doing anything else that weekend and the wedding was local, so it wasn’t like a huge inconvenience or anything.
