@Pinkmoon:  I can definitely see it happening. We are still working out the +1s situation for certain people, and I wouldnt put it past some of them to just bring someone along anyway.

@Pinkmoon: THat is so odd, especially if the ceremony isn’t in a church!  Definitely make sure you put out some extra seats. I guess it’s better you know now so you can have enough then figure it out the day of.  I recently went to a wedding where there weren’t enough seats for everyone and I thought it was kind of rude, considering they knew in advance the room wouldn’t hold the amount of people they invited.

I’d rather someone crash the ceremony than the reception though. It’s cheaper, and you might not even notice they’re there. I’d be more annoyed if someone skipped the ceremony and just came for the reception. I definitely get why you’re annoyed though. Sounds like you’re going to have to order more chairs just in case

That is very weird!! They wouldnt crash if your MIL didnt give out the information for where to go. tell her to cool her jets.

@Pinkmoon:  I would tell her to ask them to sit in the back if they feel they must attend the ceremony and remind her it’s rude to attend an event you weren’t invited to.

Actually, I think its kind of sweet. I mean, my coworkers know tons about my kids and they’ve only met a couple of times. And vice versa. These coworkers of hers probably feel like they “know” her son in a way. As long as you aren’t super tight on seating and they don’t go to the reception, I honestly don’t see a big issue with it.
