To text party non-responders and ask if their child is coming?

Dd is having a birthday party at the weekend and there are still quite a few people who haven't replied. I don't know any of the parents very well but I do have their mobile numbers from previous parties. Would it be weird to text them and ask if their child is coming? If not, how do I word it?
It's highly possible of course that the invitations are still languishing at the bottom of a book bag...

Yes, this is fine! I am sure the late response is not deliberate and most will appreciate the reminder. I would just say 'Hi, haven't saw you around so thought I would send a quick text to double check if XXX is coming to the party on Saturday. Thanks :-) ' or whatever seems appropriate. Obviously you cannot write that if you see them everyday

Texting to chase is perfectly standard in our school.
Usually says something like :
Hi Cumbrae, just checking that Persephone's party invitation made it home. We'd love if Petunia could join us at the Softplay on Sat 4th at 2:30pm? It would be great if you could let me know so that I can confirm numbers. Thanks, Persephone's Mum x
