Just for fun – let’s hear some crasher stories! How you figured out, if pictures then post the pictures. I personally found two ATTEMPTED crashers at my wedding when looking through both my pro pics and photobooth pics after the wedding.
From the pro pics, I was looking through my images one day of people arriving to the ceremony and noticed someone unfamiliar in the background:
Blown up, look at those faces! They know what they’re doing!
The funnier one is from when I got my photobooth CD back and I went through the pictures I found this random child posing in the photobooth:
Where did he come from? I don’t know! I don’t remember seeing him at the wedding because hey, I was in a daze for those few hours.
Did you have crashers at your wedding? Let’s see the pics!

I feel like my wedding venue is remote enough (30 mins outside town) that hopefully I won’t have anyone crash it!

@bowsergirl: I thought my venue was relatively isolated too, especially because to the entrance of the grounds there was a sign saying there was an event and so no outside visitors (on non-event days it was open to the public). Not 30 miles outside of town though!

We had two kids come out of the restaurant to the reserved patio to play on their play area in the back of the lawn and then ask me if I would play YMCA. Then some drunk lady came out and danced. i also found out last weekend that DH’s 15 yo cousin had friends stop by. The cousin doesn’t really surprise me but the strangers coming out to a private event? Classless!

At my best friends wedding two weddings were going on in the same venue and they kind of crashed together at some point! It started out with her DJ leading “The Train” (Choo Choo) and taking the line of dancing people out into the hall through the big ballroom next door that was hosting someone else’s reception…when they came back into our reception room…we had new people from the wedding next door! They stayed and danced for quite a while! They even told us that our wedding was way more fun! LOL that made my friend’s day since she had the more inexpensive option there than the bride next door. Not sure how the other bride felt about it.

That kid is soooo funny!
I didn’t have crashers, as such, but I was slightly taken aback to read the conversation on my Facebook event page between two friends. Both were looking forwards to introducing their new (and totally unknown to me) very recently new, girlfriends to each other at my reception. Neither of them had thought to double check that it was OK to add two complete strangers to the guest list. I was quite cool about it as it happens because it was an informal do. But I could easily have looked round on the night and assumed they were gatecrashers!

@mrscash: You are so right about the expressions on those two young men. They had “wedding crashers” written all over their faces!

A dog crashed our wedding!!
Haha. It was so funny, I didn’t even see the dog until we got our pro pics back. It doesn’t bother me at all, just so random and funny!

Lol, we had a small Back Home Reception after our Honeymoon, and even we had “Crashers”. Something we laughed about then, and still. They were a couple of people from “next door” and must have thought our dance music was more entertaining, cause they came on thru, and boogied thru a few tunes on the dance floor… and then they were gone.
We knew right away they didn’t belong… as did a good number of our Guests. BUT it was all in good fun, so we didn’t worry about it too much (besides it was after midnight, and nearing the end of the evening)
No harm, no foul, and didn’t cost us anything (ballsie, pricey Wedding Crashers are a whole other story). To have it happen to us, and our Encore / Oldtimers Wedding Reception was actually sort of entertaining (lol, I guess we “still got IT”… the IT quality / vibe I mean)
And oh ya for the record, when I was married to my Ex-H, and much younger, he and I were known to do similar things if we were in a Wedding Hall (or at a Christmas Party) and there were events going on in the rooms next door… we’d stroll in and go check out their DJ, Band, Tunes, and maybe have a dance and leave. It isn’t a polite thing to do for sure… but it is a fun thing that I think happens pretty frequently.
Once was at a Wedding in a Hall, where a Conga Line made its way from one Wedding to another, to another, and then back to their own Hall. It was hysterical !! Mind you it was in a rather smallish Canadian City, where most folks knew a lot of the same people anyhow…
