My friend did an A and B list, whenever she got a no back she sent out another invite.

I would send out as many B list invites as possible now.  I agree that if you wait much longer it will be clear you have a B list.

Send B’s as you get “NO” responses.

If you are very brave and don’t believe they will attend, you can certainly send.  I know timing is of the issue but there’s always the possibility they could show up.  Only you know.  You will also surely receive a few more No’s from your A list.

I would make a second RSVP card if you think the date on the first one is too soon…ya know, just so they don’t realize they’re on the B-list!

The key to having a B list is to send invitations in groups. People talk about getting wedding invites, so you want to send invites to groups of people at a time. (ex. all the second cousins, all the college friends etc) so that people dont feel like they got forgotten about.

Just had to write.  I am also getting married on march 27th.  I am not only through the B list but scrambling onto the C list.

For the B list, I quickly sent out Save The Date cards, then the invitation.  When questioned about this, simply explained to person that I recently found out the Save The Date cards which were origionally e-mailed were either actually not delivered or the people could not open the attachment so they were re-sent via snail mail.  This is actualy the truth so the B listers do not realize they are B listers and we even got a YES response to an out of towner relative.

This thread is very helpful!  I don’t know why, but it had never occurred to me to just send out B-list invites as you recieve the other no’s…genius!
