    Hi,

    This may seem like a really odd question but here goes.

    So, I am considering of holding an 18th birthday with quite a few people attending but I have no idea how to plan it. I've been to others' 18th birthdays before and firstly I was wondering how you invite people - is the best way a Facebook group or written invitations? It seems like everyone knows from FB?
    Similarly, is it weird if you invite people you are friends with but you don't actively or regularly hang out with at all? Would that be odd? Also, should you give out +1s to people so they have someone else they know with them or keep it exclusive?

    I'd love for anyone whose had an 18th to share their experience as I am a bit overwhelmed by the organisation atm!!

    Thank you!!!

    don't use facebook you'll have 500 people turn up and have to have the police involved to clear the situation
    I went written and had 20 people turn up which was good as every bottle allowed for a double of everything

    Nah, Facebook is fine - just make it a private event and don't allow guests to invite more guests.

    Facebook is currently the easiest way of organising things like this as almost everybody uses it and it's super easy to get the information out to the guests as well as have an idea about how many people will turn up.

    Also, I have a close group of friends at school then a close group of friends out of school - I would obviously invite them both however, would it be awkward or no?
