    Def ask them if you see them.
    We had DD2's party a few weeks ago and at the rsvp date we had no replies.
    I then asked a few mum & they said oh yeah we're coming just forgot to tell you.

    With our wedding invites I got a message from a guest saying 'We RSVP!'
    Turns out that meant they were coming... I don't think she knew what RSVP actually means.
    I'd just ask to make sure.

    We had something for DS a few months back and I had only heard from a couple of people by the time RSVP was due. Turns out that the ones I posted never reached their destination - thank you Australia Post once again. They owe me around $53 in undelivered parcels and letters so far. They are truly answerable to no one - what other sort of company gets away with such a poor record??? They really do need competition...AAAND this has turned into a vent...sorry

    Anyway - I just texted those people who hadn't rsvp'd. One of them their husband had forgotten to pass it on too - classic! If I hadn't checked it would have been an extremely quiet party!

    Being someone that throws parties for both my kids every year, a non RSVP doesn't always mean a no. It's quite regular for me to only get a few RSVPS then a heap of kids turn up. This year I invited 25 kids to DS's party (to account for the inevitable half that won't come). Only half said they were coming..... 23 turned up and it was mayhem

    THAT is SO rude. Not RSVP'ing and not coming is rude, but fancy someone not RSVP'ing and then turning up unannounced! I would have huge trouble with this, I plan my parties pretty precisely. They simply wouldn't be catered for!

    Unfortunately it means making up a heap of lolly bags jic they turn up. It annoys me tbh but apart from ringing people (and given my kids are at school I don't have every kids phone number) there is no way to know.

    It appears to be a common rudeness not to reply by the RSVP date. I would just ask.

    It's not rude to ask! It's rude not to RSVP so that the host HAS to ask!
    Casually ask.
    To me it's less awkward to ask now rather than have them turn up unexpectedly and not have enough of things

    It's actually at a play centre and I am paying for all the kids and getting platters for the adults. I should ask those who show up without RSVP to pay their own entry lol

    Thankfully dd only had 6 kids she wanted to invite from school. The rest are friends and family whom all did rsvp.
