How to get RSVP's?
My daughter is graduating from high school and we'll have a little party to celebrate. We'll be inviting @35 kids and several families, and serving dinner (mostly finger-type) food. These days it is difficult to get people to rsvp and I'm wondering if there is a polite way of wording the invitation that will nudge them to do so. I hate the idea of ordering and preparing way too much food because it always gets thrown away (guilt, guilt), but an even worse scenario to me is not having enough! Any ideas?
