So i am watching the “Four Weddings” from this past friday and just saw that one of the brides’ DJ announced at the reception that overflow seating was outside, so if you did not RSVP, please go sit outside!!!!
I would be so appalled if i heard this! I hate it when people don’t RSVP and yes i know how inconvenient it is for the bride, but it just seems extremely tacky to announce that to everyone. It makes the guests feel unwelcome and it points out to everyone – oh hey ya you were one of the people who had to sit outside in the heat because you didn’t rsvp!

that’s insane! I can’t believe the bride didn’t make follow up calls to see who was going to be there! That’s her own fault! What a dummy!

Yeah I thought that was super tacky! I couldn’t figure out who asked him to announce that… the couple? I can’t imagine he came up with that all by himself.

It’s rude to show up without sending an rsvp. But that dj should have fired on the spot since his comment was uncalled for. I wouldn’t be surprised if folks who did rsvp got up and left (or had the desire to) after such a scene.

My FI and I watched that too and both looked at each other from across the couch and started cracking up. It was so tacky.

I never saw that episode. As mortified as I would be if that happened I appreciate the humour of the situation…

I think he was told you say it but not sure!
JenuineMulder– you’re right though.. it is there fault
Ember78– you’re also right it is rude to show up with out RSVPing
and mwitter80 i agree, it was so tacky it was kinda funny!

I saw it too and was shocked. He had to have been instructed to say that. A DJ isn’t going to come up with that on his own. Why would he care? If you are going to call people out like that then you should do it before they even get into the reception. I wonder if they went around checking to make sure the non-RSVPs went outside. That would’ve made good tv. Ha!

Our mouths flew wide open when we heard that. I have a feeling that someone told him to say that. lol

Just a thought… I didn’t see the episode, but perhaps within that bride’s cultural background that is acceptable. A cousin of mine works in the funeral business, and gave a description of another group’s method of mourning. What he shared would be considered highly tacky and rude in my social circle, but apparently is deemed completely normal in this other group. Sometimes, we aren’t aware of how other people do things!

That’s hilarious, and I kind of love it.

@littlestbirds lol it kinda is like revenge to those people who didn’t rsvp and still showed up!
But still can’t get passed how rude it is 😉

I also think thats super rude! they were all just like standing outside. There may not have been enough seating inside but i think there would have been enough room to stand inside instead of outside. sheesh. I would have just left I wouldnt have even stayed, but then again I would never not rsvp and then just show up.

I didnt see the episode but if it was my wedding I would be shocked and be asking the DJ to rephrase!
