I am having a party for my dd and invited 6 friends from day care. The RSVP date was last week. 4 of the 6 did not reply so do I assume they won't be coming? I have since seen some of them and we chatted about general things but I didn't want to bring up the party bc I thought it would be awkward. is it weird to bring it up or is it universally implied that no answer means no? wwyd ?
Also I have checked their parent pockets and it's not there so they definitely got it. One of the boys even told dd he got the invite but there was no mention of him coming.

I would have asked the parents when I ran into them.

I would definitely just ask them if you see them. Otherwise I would assume that no response means they aren't coming.

Ok. It was on the tip of my tongue to ask but didn't want them to think I was being pushy if no answer meant no.

I don't think it's pushy to check casually if you see them....I think they are rude for not replying!

I would have bought it up casually. Like "Oh, did you get DD's party invite? I was a bit hesitant about putting them in the parent pockets or straight to the kids?"
But generally yes- it seems to be the norm to not RSVP these days. :rolleys:

I would just casually ask. One of the mums texted me to see if dd1 was going to her ds' party. Turns out dd1 never gave it to me even though she wanted to go. She gets forgetful and lazy sometimes.

I would ask them. We are having DS1's birthday next week and apart from people rsvping in person no one texted or called me. I ran into one preschool mum this morning and she mentioned she tried calling but it didn't go through... turns out I put my old number on the invites So yeah I'm feeling really stupid but I'm glad that I did ask in person.

I would just ask
Something along the lines of you didn't give me a yes or no just wanting numbers :-)
It's so bloody rude not to rsvp it's not that hard !!!!!!
