Sending Invitations to a Surprise Party?

I have been organizing a surprise party for my mom. It's been a lot of work finding the emails for her many friends and emailing them all, many of whom I don't know. I have invited roughly 60 people. I gave people about a week to rsvp. I wanted to send invites out early (about a month and a half before the party) so I will have time to plan. The rsvp date is this Friday, and so far fewer than half of the invitees have bothered responding.

My question is, should I re-send an invitation to the other people who haven't got back to me? And if so, would Saturday be a good re-send date?

Thanks.

I've gotten invitations to events, block parties, and more, from E-vite. This lets you click Join-Maybe-decline, sends reminders at intervals. I'm sure there are other applications for this, as well. This will make it much easier on you.

Does sending an E-vite require you to have all the email addresses of the invited guests?

Some people might not recognize your email address and not have opened the email. In the subject line I would put surprise party for "Mom's name"...also Sat.

is not too soon to send out another email. They may have been waiting to make sure nothing clashes with your event. Good luck.

People are notorious for not responding on time. Sat would be a good day to send out another reminder. You will likely get a few more by then. And then a flurry of replies right after you send out the reminder. If there are some close friends who you think would want to come who are not responding, perhaps you could give them a phonecall. Sometimes, especially if these are older people, they need to be phoned to get them to pay attention to things.
