I totally would have called them out on it. Maybe I’m too bold, but I would have walked up to them and asked them who they were. I probably would have asked for the bouquet and garter back as well.

At a friend’s wedding about a year and a half ago there were a few crashers and the guys at the wedding went up to them and asked who they were and who they knew. One of the crashers actually offered to buy the groom a drink, to which the groom responded “Well, this is my wedding and it’s open bar, so technically, I’m the one buying you a drink here…”. I’m pretty sure they let the guy have a drink and then escorted him out. However the other two crashers drew a penis (like really graphically) on the bride & grooms photo matte/guest book type thing. I had to spend half an hour covering it up with a henna type pattern before the bride saw!!!!

Your situation is different since the crashers came with guests you knew. Who does that?! I think it was really gracious of you to open up the reception portion of the evening, but it was really rude of the OOT couple to bring these people to all the other events they were clearly not invited to. I think it’s really unfortunate that they couple got the bouquet and garter, however you did open up the reception at this point. It’s lovely that they had such a great time, but I would have been disappointed to. I wouldn’t say anything to your friends though, I would likely just distance myself from them. I mean at this point there’s nothing that can change what happened right?
