So I just came across this phone App. I saw the movie wedding crashers & loved it, but I had no idea people were actually in to this. So after watching this video, would anyone think twice about doing a wedding website?

I’m pretty sure the number of people who actually use this app and crash weddings is pretty low. Especially for a wedding like mine, which is a sit-down dinner with a small number of guests… we’d notice pretty quick if a stranger was there! I am definitely still doing a wedding website, and I might password protect but I also might not. *shrug*

@MissCalifornia: plus, anyone who puts their info on a wedding website (unless it’s locked down) has this risk, app or not

I password protected mine. And yeah, this wouldn’t have stopped me from having one. 🙂

That is so scary! It’s making me think twice about completing my wedding website with the Knot. I wonder if the Knot or Wedding Channel know about this app?? I can’t imagine they’d endorse something like this!

I doubt there are a ton of people who do this. Also, they won’t have a place to sit and I actually know every single person invited. It also helps that our city venue provides security for all events as we’re on a public hotel floor and they keep guests away from our “wing”

Our wedding is being held on a private property, there’s nothing else around us for miles. So any random person showing up will be noticed right away – and escorted out promptly.
This is really pathetic, who makes this crap?!

I doubt a whole heck of a lot of people do this either, but I just couldn’t imagine anyone in real life would do some straight up “wedding crashers” styled wedding crashing. I mean how desperate does a guy really have to be to go to a wedding for the sole purpose of getting laid! That blows my mind!

This app isn’t new, unless there are now multiples out there. I remember discussing this on WB over a year ago. In my opinion, EVERYONE should password protect their site. You’re basically telling everyone with an internet connection when you, as well as all of your loved ones, will not be home. Forget about someone crashing your wedding, how about someone breaking into your house! Even if you don’t know the couple personally, it’s easy enough to find an address. We would have NEVER had an open wedding website. It’s just not the brightest idea.

@Miss Orchard: Hypothetically speaking, In the off event that someone really wanted to crash, they could likely pull it off if you have a large guest list, despite security. Security will likely let anybody into your wedding wing who looks like they’re dressed for the event & acts like their supposed to be there. Unless you provide them with a list to check off. From my experience working in the wedding industry, I can tell you that you’re vendors are truly concerned with the happiness of your guests and they will not harass them over things like this, unless you ask them to.
When it comes to the issue of there being a seat for a crasher, that probably wouldn’t be an issue either. There are normally a few people who RSVP yes to weddings, that don’t show up. So there will more than likely be a seat somewhere. With all of the events going on that day, you might not even notice the crasher in the crowd. Even if one of your guest begins to be a little suspicious they probably won’t tell you because, no one wants to upset the bride on the day of the wedding, so they’ll probably let it ride.
That said, you probably won’t have this issue. Because, like you said most people probably aren’t pathetic enough to be serial wedding crashers.

@UpstateCait: There are probably multiples then. According to their facebook page, they launch next month. They advertise themselves as being “the world’s first wedding crashing app”, but of course that doesn’t really mean anything.
Very good point about the possibility of someone breaking into your house, though!
