I think sending the remaining 12 out 2 months prior is fine. Like you said, you should definately know by then who on the A list is not coming. At first I thought sending out your A set of invites was too early, but with having a B list, I think you’ve set it up nicely.

i think you’re good. we’re sort of doing a "rolling b-list invite" (meaning as we get declines, we’ll start to invite b-listers). those on the end of the b-list will get about 3 weeks to respond, which is less than i would like, but oh well!

your timeline is totally fine! 🙂 as long as it’s not obvious that your B-list is your B-list, you’re fine. 🙂 i like rebecca’s rolling B list too.

Regarding people "knowing" they are on the B list – I’m assuming they didn’t get a STD… we’ve received an invite without an STD and we knew that meant we were B list.  So despite your best efforts, there is a good chance they will know.  That being said, 1 month is plenty of time for an invitation to go out for locals – and you may be able to send them earlier as people RSVP "no" from the A list.  Are there people on the B list that know each other, if one were to receive an invite 2 weeks before the other… or A and B list people that know each other… I don’t know why I am rambling; there is nothing you can do about any of this.  Your timeline looks good.  I am clearly procrastinating getting work done by being on weddingbee and that is why this post is so long!
