So, the other day I got asked point blank by one of my co-workers if she was invited to our wedding. I tried to be nice about it, and be like, well, no it’s a small wedding with just family and close friends, when another co-worker chimed in that “technically” I’m getting married in a public place, and “anybody’s allowed, we should just go”
Umm… true. The show garden we’re getting married in will still be open to the public, and anyone willing to pay admission can come in, but I was just a little surprised someone would come out and say they’re going to crash my wedding!

How rude! Is there a way to make it invite only? We plan on getting married in a local park which yes its open to anyone to come but since we reserved it I plan to have it invite only. I mean come on the most it will be blocked off from rest of the society is a hour max so I am sure that you can talk to the venue and explain your situation to them with potential party crashers!
Good Luck 🙂

thats kinda rude and awkward. i guess if they just want to go to the ceremony thats fine but i dunno. why on earth would you invite yourself to a wedding that you were not going to be invited to? i’m having issues getting over how rude that is.
is your reception at the same location?

gah! i hope they were joking!!! bad joke, but ugh. really? seriously?
if it helps my FMIL told me “well technically its a church wedding and anyone is invited to the church” ummm no its a CHAPEL which by definition is limited in size, which means no you cant tell your so and so friends to crash and then my granny doesnt get a seat! ugh.

I hope they’re kidding. You’d think a Friday wedding during the day would prevent this kind of thing!
Our venue realizes that sometimes people in the park will wander into a wedding thinking it’s something the park is putting on, and then be embarrassed to leave, so they do provide extra seats just in case 🙂
I’ll have to tighten up security at the reception. It is at the same location, but it would be obvious if there were extra people there, as they won’t have a seat or a meal.

That’s weird.. I wouldn’t worry about it though, the odds are that they were just joking, and wouldn’t follow thru with it. But very werid thing to joke about.

Wow that’s really awkward, but that’s when you say, “I’m flattered you’re willing to pay to attend my wedding ceremony.” And smile oh so sweetly lol

I just had a coworker say the exact same thing to me! That she was going to find the location and show up to take pictures. My FI thinks they were just messing with me but now I am super freaked out about it.

That is IMO very very rude! How dare they! I am very doubtful they will turn up but if they do, I would say that constitutes intimidating behaviour and should be brought to your bosses attention. Not on!
