    Sorry that's my poor sentence formation. Of the 100 I invited, only about 50 turned up. I don't think I even know 100 people, it was mainly invited friends, bring a friend. My mum's friend is a party planner, he sorted everything out (which pretty much consisted of booking the club for the night and getting a cake tbh).

    It seems great having the whole club to yourself at first, but then we realised the more people that were there, the better time you had anyway.

    The thought of being in a club (or even away from me bed past midnight) now makes me feel ill lol XD
    That's what I'd hate to happen, invite a load of people and then not have that many turn up. Almost as if you've gone to a massive effort for loads of people to miss out on it But sounds like you had a fab time!!

    I was thinking I'd probably just make a playlist on a laptop and plug it into the music system there as I can't trust DJs and their song choices sometimes! Yeah, I'd allow people to bring plus 1s, but obviously not everybody, I think the only people who'd bring them, is people who don't necessarily know a lot of people at the party, like you said, I don't want to end up with millions of people there!!
    If that's the case maybe a house party? I know the fear of it getting destroyed but if you're inviting people you know and trust them in sure it will be fine. The main thing is font let the music stop haha, it will create quite a dull atmosphere.

    I thought it would bother me more, but all my best friends and close family turned up so I wasn't so bummed out

    It was a good night in the end, although my Mum got really drunk off of the free champange and ended up on the podium.

    Good times

    Can't really see the point of going into overkill for an 18th birthday party. Well done, your old enough to see an 18 film, doesn't mean you need to party like it's the end of AIDS.

    I just see it as a bit of a milestone, not to mention the time when most of us will be leaving for University!
    I haven't really been the birthday party sort of person throughout my life, sort of alternated between days out, holidays and family get togethers, so I think I'd like to make up for it by having a big 18th I guess

    Didn't have a party for my 18th 'cause I turned 18 before any of my friends so I couldn't go out. Had about 12 friends come out clubbing with me for my 19th though :dance:

    I waited until 2 days before to organise something and ended up with about 5 of us at a terrible club because everyone else (understandably) had plans, and I got the last bus home at quarter to twelve. Needless to say since then I've had some MUCH better nights out

    I did this too. I'd much rather spend special occasions with my family.

    Then I had 2 of my friends over to my house at the weekend and we got smashed. My closest friends at the time weren't 18 yet so we couldn't go to a club or anything.

    Parties with a mix of friends and family can be pretty awkward as you have to balance your time and also music choices can become difficult.

    I just went clubbing with close friends, didn't have an actual party.

    I got 6 o 7 close friends to come Harvester, then we went back to mine and got drunk, never really got the point of having a massive party, I could just go to a club if I wanted something like that, and it's a lot cheaper that way too (well with student prices at least)

    Yeah that's why I'll probably go out for the meal the day before and then have the party with my friends after so it's a good mixture of both. If I could only do one then I completely agree with you, family all the way.
