That’s no biggie!  I’d just call the RSVP number and ask the host what to do.  I’m sure they’ll be accomodating…they are after all throwing a party for someone 🙂

Call her today for sure. The party isn’t for another (almost) 2 weeks and I’m guessing she was planning on some people being late in RSVPing. Let her know your situation and she may know someone who lives by the train station who wouldn’t mind picking you up and dropping you off.

I would send a gift with a nice card explaining that you couldn’t make it and wish you could have. If it’s a surprise for your friend, she’ll probably never know that you didn’t RSVP one way or the other.

I’d call her mother and just let her know why you’re a bit late with the RSVP so she can kind of plan on having or not having you there. I think even if you don’t know for sure yet, just let them know whats going on. When I planned my sister’s shower I really hated not getting the RSVPs in–just like a wedding, I had to give final numbers to the caterer, etc. so it does help to let them know even what you *might* do.

Thanks for the update. It’s always good to hear how things went.
I’m glad she was nice and there is a way for you to go that will not be a headache!

The metronorth isn’t that bad to travel on, we do it all the time if we don’t wanna take the car (my fiance’s family lives in the New Haven area).  The travel won’t be the issues.  The possibly being bored is the only concern since the one person you know will be busy but I’m sure you’ll find some nice people to talk to.  I’d do what I could to get there, I hate the idea of not having a lot of guests at my own (which is also in CT) so I’d never wanna miss out on someone elses.  But if I couldn’t I’d send a gift anyway.
