So, this came up for a party that I threw last weekend, and I was wondering if I was being rude or not.
I was throwing a children's party for my son's 5th birthday. We sent out invitations well in advance, with both my husband's and my phone number listed for RSVP. Everyone invited also has our email addresses.
The party was supposed to be an outdoor party, but, as we had heavy rain and hail this week, we decided to reschedule it to an indoor venue. We contacted everyone who had RSVP'd to let them know the venue was changed. The day of, it was pouring rain, and I can't imagine anyone would think we were having it at the park. My mom, however, thought it was strange of us not to contact every person on the invitation or send someone to the park to make sure no one showed up there mistakenly. I disagreed, as they should have RSVP'd, or at the very least contacted us to verify the venue, seeing as we'd had horrible weather all week. Many of the invitees were my son's classmates, and it seemed strange to send out a mass email about it when most of them probably weren't planning on coming (he's in preschool, and generally only one or two classmates show up at parties).
So, what say you, was I rude??
