Guest List A/B/C

Anyone done this? Exactly how did you implement it (ie, different response due dates, sending out round B as you received no's for A's)?

I've heard of brides numbering the back of their invites in pencil (lightly) - this comes in handy in case some of your guests have chicken scratch for writing, you don't have to struggle to find out who wrote it - you can identify it by the numbered card (remember to keep a list of what # went to which guest). I thought this was a great idea, especially if you have a longer guest list!!
Sorry that I didn't answer your question though!! :|

After we sent out the STDs we found out right away that some people couldn't make it, so we sent out a few more STDs to some of the B people right away.
Does this make any sense??
Our original guest list was HUGE, so we had to try to limit it somehow. My FI is friends with way too many people. For friend invites, we made a rule that the person had to either be in your cell phone or it had to be a person that we would do something with one-on-one (not just with a group), that's why we really had to go with the A/B rating.

That's kind of how I thought this article was specifying it should work. The only thing they weren't clear on was whether you adjust your RSVP dates based on which round of invites you're sending out...
I wouldn't think too many DW brides would use this because so many DW's have much smaller guest lists. But I can see where it would be beneficial for AHW/AHR for a lot of people. Heck, if we did something at home, we have about 500-600 people on his side of the family and I have about 200 on mine, without even counting friends.... (Thank GOD! we are doing a DW!!!!)

I would also be worried about some people finding out that they were on the B list.
I guess it depends on your family & friends, but we knew with a DW that we wouldn't have too many people. We would actually be really excited if a lot of our guests did come, but we know it will only be about 20-25 because of all the things everyone has going on in their lives, not everyone can come.
I guess if you are planning to still invite most of your guest list, which sounds like a lot, and you don't want that many people then this may be a good option for you.
