    Default Late RSVP? WWYD?

    Okay, so Jake was invited to a birthday party for a boy at school about a week or two ago.

    I misplaced the invitation and just found it....the party is Sunday and the RSVP before date was Dec 1.

    Would it be okay for me to still RSVP? Or should I put a note in this boys cubby that I apologize for not RSVP'ing on time and we wish him a Happy Birthday? (they invited all kids in the class - the party is at a local kids play place - Busy Bees)

    I feel awful, Jake was excited about it. I swear he doesn't remember, but I still feel bad.

    What is RSVP ettiquette? I know I should have done it before the date either way, but I've had one hell of a few weeks with school and such.

    I would phone and ask if it was still okay to RSVP and just explain what happened.

    I would call and explain too. He may not remember now but he'll feel badly when the kids that went are talking about it.

    Funny thing that is, in the two weeks since we got the invite he has moved rooms to the 'big kid' room. This boy is in the preschool room. Chances are if we were in the same room still J would have reminded me.

    If you want him to go, I would call as they most likely only paid a deposit and will final the bill at the end of the party and I'm sure there is room.

    I agree with everyone, call and see if you can RSVP now. I just RSVP'd to a party my daughter's going to Saturday because I forgot about it, it wasn't a big deal at all!

    I would just call anyway and say you forgot. My oldest DD got invited to a birthday party and I totally forgot to RSVP until the DAY of the party lol ...... I sent her anyway and apologized when I got there.

    oh yeah, call and explain. this way too Jake won't miss out on a party and you haven't just seemingly forgot or were not able to go. no harm in a call at ALL.

    Okay, so I was about to call....but.....I'm hesitating because Jake's got a runny nose and is cranky...if I RSVP late and then he gets sick and I have to cancel on the day of...I'll feel awful.

    I'm thinking we may just not go to this one, I would hate to flake out twice on them.

    Ugh. lol

    Call and let them know. I had someone RSVP like 2 days before Ryan's birthday because she told me that they were moving and she miss placed the invite.
