I am just curious how you would handle this situation. I invited my daughters entire class (so no one would feel left out) to her birthday party. I sent out invites 4 weeks ahead of time because the party would be right after the holidays. Another parent (whose child was invited to the party) scheduled her daughters party at the same time, date, and place with no invite for my daughter. She emailed the classmates parents after I sent out my invitations about knowing there were 2 parties but hoped they would pick her daughters over my daughters. I fully expected that not everyone from the entire class was going to come. Only 1 parent backed out on her original rsvp. The other parent only texted me 4 days before the party saying her daughter couldn't make it since she was having her party the same time, date, and place. Who does this? I am from a low class area so I shouldn't expect any less but does anyone think that this is okay to do. People I've talked to have mentioned the word "awkward".
