Newlyweds, did anyone crash your wedding?
Have you ever crashed another wedding?
How would you feel if someone crashed your wedding?
(3 parts to the poll – 1-9; A-D; i-ii – would have included “iii) I have not and would not crash a wedding” if there were room – sorry!!)

Would you guys totally kill me if I admitted that this past weekend I was at a wedding and there was another wedding on the same property – so my friend and I snuck into their reception and danced for 3 songs (the dj was awesome!)? We stayed in the corner and then left, so we didn’t bother anyone that we know of…

- Wedding: September 2011 - Epworth UMC & Ward Pavilion
I never have and I never would because I’d be so paranoid, but I think if any show up at our wedding, we’ll just be like, meh, whater, the more the merrier!

I wouldn’t mind if mine was crashed and I think it would be awesome to crash one! I like excitement ! (of course not in the popular movie idea of having sex with a bridal party member lol)

I’ve never crashed, and as much as I want to be laid back, I think I’d be pretty upset if anyone crashed mine – mostly because at weddings I’ve been at where someone has crashed, the crasher has been a drunken, disastrous mess!

I honestly think wedding crashing is tacky. So is bringing someone who is not invited.
I attended a wedding last year where the 2 guests that couldn’t make it thought it was okay to replace them with 2 other guests that the bride and groom didn’t even know. They were there for the WHOLE thing. Food, dancing, Dessert, the works!
I do however think it wouldn’t be a huge deal if someone showed up JUST for dancing towards the end of the night. That’s acceptable for me. I just wouldn’t want them mooching on my wedding that I PAID for!

I feel kind of bad about this, but I did crash a wedding with my bestie once. We were out of town, visiting my grandma. We went to the local hotel for a drink (my grandma lives in a really small town of less than 1000 people) so the hotel bar was empty and we asked the bartender what was going on in town that night. He told us about a wedding taking place at the local rec center so we decided to check it out. It’s not like we ate free food, or anything like that. We bought a drink at the bar, danced for awhile, took our picture with the bride and then took off. It was actually a very laid back wedding, everyone was in blue jeans and cowboy boots. We definitely stood out.

We had wedding crashers and loved it. Granted it was all friends we hadn’t invited, but there was enough food to go around and plenty of booze, so it was all good!

I’m actually kind of surprised that more people aren’t vehemently opposed to this!

We had about 5 folks that weren’t invited show up. They ate and drank. When I finally got around to noticing them there, I walked right up and told them they weren’t invited for a reason and get out or I would have someone show them out. I was annoyed, but didn’t let it ruin my evening.
OP- In your case, I don’t think I would mind that kind of crashing at all. :o)

Since I’m paying a flat rate for alcohol based on my number of invited guests, the only thing that would bother me is if they jumped into pictures. Otherwise, I’m just going to enjoy my wedding.

@sonj818: oooh I didn’t think about pics! I wouldn’t want to be in someone else’s pictures I don’t think!

@ddw: I’m more concerned about them jumping into a pic with me and my college girls or something!

It’s custom here to open up the dance to co-workers, distant friends, etc… Anyone can come to the dance, so technically, we had a lot of wedding crashers! 🙂

No one crashed our wedding but one guest did add a plus one that I told her wasn’t invited. It was someone I didn’t particularly want there to begin with but honestly I had so much fun with everyone else it didn’t matter.
I have never crashed a wedding.
I would be okay with someone crashing my wedding if it was a buffet. Plated dinner- not so much.
