How old is dd? Did invites go out via school? if so, can you try and "bump into" other parents and ask them face to face if they are coming? It is really quite ignorant to not respond at all -are you sure all the invites went out?

I agree, are you sure that the invites were received by everyone?

You will probably find that there is a last minute rush, Don't cancel the party just send a brief reminder out.
When my dd had her party some people didn't reply until the Thursday before the party, which really pissed me off. I don't think people mean to be rude, it just slips their minds.

What bad manners shock.
You'll have to grit your teeth, smile nicely and ask them if they're coming?
And don't bother inviting the rude ones next year.grin

How old is she? My patent trick (worked last year - Y2) was to send DS in with a list of non-respondees and tell him to tell the children concerned that if their parents did not reply there would be no party bag for them.

100% (well, 95%) replies within 24 hours grin

Chase the parents as much as you can.

Happy Birthday DD! smile
