WOW.  I cannot imagine a reception like that!!! How in the world did they decide to do away with seating for their guests?!  Crazy.

wow.  yeah, that wasn’t very considerate at all!  Even from someone who wears heels frequently and very comfortably, that would’ve grated on my nerves!!!  Ugh… I can imagine what the heat was like…  I do not blame you one bit for being angry or for your vamped up desire to make sure your guests are far more comfy than you were!!!

I’m baffled as to why they wouldn’t at least have seats.  Maybe they cut out the rental for that to have something else???  It didn’t get set up in time??  I’m at a loss.

so, soooo sorry you had to endure such misery!  painful feet is something I can sympathize with greatly.  (mine spasm horribly every so often to the point where I just want them cut off… even otc meds like ibprophen and tylenol don’t help sometimes so I can completely sympathize and empathize with that misery!!)

There’s often a lot of unfair judging at weddings – choices that guests would not have made if they were in the same position. However, not providing guests with the necessities of comfort – something to drink and a place to sit – is just poor hosting. Shame on them.

Ouch, sounds pretty rough.  I don’t mind weddings on a lower budget, but please just provide your guests a chair!

I agree with some of the other posters. Not providing your guests with basic necessities like seating and beverages (be that whatever you decide to serve) is fairly rude. Who wants to stand for hours in heels?

We provided comfortable shoes (a choice of flip flops or cotton Mary Janes) for guests to wear at our wedding (e.g., while dancing), even though we also made sure there was at least one chair per guest.  In this couple’s situation, they clearly understood the importance of being able to get off their feet, since they provided that for themselves, their wedding party, and their immediate families.  So why wouldn’t they notice their guests would also need it?

@hissoon2be: well, so much for that idea!  Maybe it all went into the wedding gown or engagement/wedding bands/rings? 

regardless, if they wanted that many people, I totally agree they should’ve had a larger venue with seats! 

I don’t think I would’ve had it in me to stay.  That’s not how you treat your friends.  Especially when my feet began to ache!

kudos to you for braving it out as long as you did!

Wow! That’s really messed up! I can’t believe that they only provided seats for certain people, ran out of punch, and had no air!

Wait, is it possible that this was not what they planned? Did music person flake out and not show? Were they told the AC would be on but it wasn’t?
