You would have to make a second RSVP date for those guests.

I did it, I had a second set of invitations printed with the new RSVP date.

I have never heard of this before, is this common?

I would be a bit careful about this — a friend got married last year, and I was obviously a “b list” guest , as a whole group of girls I know got their invitations several months before I did (and I didn’t get a STD, which was prominantly posted on other girls’ cork boards). It was pretty hurtful, and honeslty made me not want to go, so if you send out B list invites, I would say be discreet, send them out ASAP, and make sure everyone in the same circle gets them at the same time, you don’t want any of your guests to feel like they are just a place filler.

I am sending out invitations starting in September so for every no we get back… I will send another invite out. We are expecting a few nos right away since certain family members already told us they couldn’t make it. My RSVP date isn’t until early November so everyone will basically be getting the same invites around the same time.

My b list had a later RSVP date on them. Most of them knew they were b listed though. they were either new friends, or they were partners of good friends whom we couldn’t include until we had official declines due to space.
