Guest responses are important for a host to accurately plan an event. The host requires these responses to inform the caterer, rent different party supplies, and purchase any giveaways. Many guests will be courteous and respond in a timely manner. However, there are many people who forget to respond. This situation can be easily remedied with a phone call or email. Read on to see the protocol when people do not respond to a party invitation.
It may seem embarrassing or awkward for a host to call unresponsive guests. However, this is the necessary step to receive a “yes” or “no” response to a party. Hosts should remain friendly when confirming attendance status with their guests. If a guest does not give a concrete response, then state that a final count is required for the catering and party rental orders. This should bring immediacy to the conversation.
