That’s always the challenge with having a B list, I think! And for you, it’s compounded by the venue’s request for a headcount so far in advance of the wedding.

Is it really a headcount they need? Or does “guaranteed minimum” mean something else? In other words, how exact does it need to be? You may be able to stretch the second RSVP a bit later if they don’t need such a precise number, which would help.

Regardless, I do think you can delay the second RSVP by a few days if you really want to give the A list a later deadline. You could give yourself less time to chase down stragglers – maybe 7-8 days instead of 12? Depends on how big your guest list is and how easy they are to reach.

I do think 3 weeks is plenty of time to allow for a response, either way.
