I recently heard about the A and B guest list idea from The Knot and am wondering if anyone has any advice on it. I know this is kind of controversial, but what drew us to this idea is knowing that several of our "VIP" guests will probably not be able to make it due to finances, lack of ability to travel long distances, etc., and we would love to invite some other people in their place. Obviously, at this time we do not yet know who is and isn't going to be able to go so we aren't able to discuss this issue with them before we send out invites....hence the A and B list.
Has anyone does this? How does it work with save the dates? Is it weird for someone to get an invite without getting a save the date?
