Four Weddings

WHY were they having such a hard time learning the CUPID SHUFFLE?! lol. Doesn't the song talk you through the whole dance? lol. AND the DJ announced that the indoor seating was only for people that RSVP'd, everyone else had to sit outside. WOW!

    That sounds really bad reading it, but at my wedding...RSVPs attend the reception and all others go home, so I guess they still had it better than my non-guests will. 

    Of course, if there is extra space, my planner will be sure that they are accommodated, but as no responses come in, we plan to extend invitations to the significant others of a few of my line sisters who were not invited with a date (our line has that assumption since we've had so many weddings recently...we are a group and we have a ball without the men so we don't usually invite everyone with dates to double the number and reduce the fun...unless we know and are close with the guy or extra seats come available).

    GIrl I watched it last night too.  I am really wondering though if she wanted her DJ to announce it like that.  That is what my hostess and planner at the door will be for.

    Exactly!  Been there, done that before when I coordinated a family member's wedding.  The hostesses and I used the RSVP list to handle that. It wasnt the best and yes someone who should have been seated didn't get seated. But the problem was that people who WEREN"T EVEN INVITED showed up! OMG - our people can be a TRIP sometimes.  There were some hurt feelings but they got over it! I know I didn't even mind putting the hammer down.  But yeah, having the DJ ANNOUNCE it was a little tacky!

    They showed an older man who had to go outside too. I was like no the heck he didnt'. Even if it was the case that they had to go outside it was another way for him to say it. Goodness!

    Ha Ha...I saw this!  I know we all say this "NO RSVP. NO SEAT"! but that did look really rude and tacky.  the sad part was that the ppl who didn't RSVP were elders. They had that old lady go outside with her cane and all. That was down right rude. She probably didn't even know how to RSVP. Someone should've helped her with that.

    I'm trying to decide if I want to have the coordinator admit people according to the RSVP list or not.  Unfortunatly, neither of our families truly understand the concept of RSVP, but we want them to share in our celebration.  I plan to try to confirm via phone with those older relatives who may get slip through the cracks, but those younger, "should know better" folks....... hmmmmm....FI would want everyone to come in and enjoy, but I think you should have the courtesy to at least reply to the RSVP - my guest will have four ways to respond: phone, mail, wedding web site, and email so they shouldn't have any excuse.

    I saw it and I thought it was very tacky.  I understand the mindset because me and FI feel the same way, but we are not going to announce it.  We are still tring to figure out how we will tell that to people.  I told a couple of people ahead of time.
