No Birthday Invite

Hi, I'm new to the board and I have a question about birthday party etiquette. There are only twelve children in my daughter's class and so far she has been invited to most of the birthday parties (that I know of) except two.
One girl blantantly told her she didn't invite her because she doesn't like her and I thought that was just awful. We are talking about six year olds. Do parents allow their children to make decisions about who comes to their parties?
Last week she didn't get invited again and I thought well maybe the birthday girl could only invite so many kids in her class. When I picked up my daughter Monday at school, the first thing she said was that she didn't get to go the birthday party. It was apparent (I don't have the exact count) but most of the kids in the class went because they all came in with favors from the party.
I thought this was very inconsiderate to my daughter and any other child that didn't get invited. But because I don't know the etiquette and it's only kindergarten, I had better brace myself for what lies ahead.
Honestly, I really didn't know what to say to my child considering the school is suppose to be teaching about inclusiveness. I just want to protect her and not have her feelings get hurt.
Any advise on this matter would be most helpful. Thank you!!!!
