I was thinking maybe 20 to 30 might come to my party. At least 15. But 3 is a bit disappointing. It's not until end of Feb so, there's still time. At what point does one reset expectations with guests? The invitation was clear I was expecting a party rather than an intimate dinner.

Did the invite actually request an RSVP?

Yes. By 7 Feb. I'm really fast replying. They might be confirming their child care.

When did you send the invites?

I think you are panicing a little soon!
On the 5th Feb send a reminder.
Most people are just slogging through January

OP here to say you were right and lots replied on the deadline. 35 are coming so that's cheered me up. Better make a to do list.

Yay for you OP! I also have a little panic when people don’t rsvp immediately, but nearer the day they commit and it’s all groovy!
Have a super party 🎈

Always best to send out invites by post or phone 2 to 3 weeks before the party. Then the weekend before, phone everyone to confirm who is definitely attending. Hope that helps.
