For my daughter's birthday party, I sent out 15 invitations three weeks before the party with an RSVP date one week before. I was hoping to get ten guests since we get charged extra for anything more than that.
A week and a half before the party, I really started to panic. We had one yes.
I started sending out a couple more invitations. I finally collected seven guests and felt satisfied with that.
Then ON the RSVP date, I got two more yeses from the invites I'd given out two weeks earlier.
Several days later, I got THREE more yeses from invites now given out nearly three weeks ago.
Seriously, RUDE. I ordered party favors online and now I have the wrong number of everything. Plus more kids than I wanted. Why does it take three weeks to RSVP??????
