As long as there were empty seats (no-shows, last minute cancellations, etc.), and I was paying for 2 people anyway, I wouldn’t care. So often at weddings guests start to clear out after the dessert course is served. Of coure, if their behavior was questionable, that’s a different story.

I would be upset that the crashers think this type of behavior is okay, and have them quietly escorted out based on that. I don’t reward bad behavior.

I wouldn’t be ok with this. I was a bridesmaid at my friend’s wedding 2 years ago and she had 2 people crash her wedding. By the time we realize and got scorted out, half of her cards were missing. Including mine. 

I didn’t appreciate someone else cashing my check of my hard earned money. 

If I see crashers at mine, I’ll personally kick them out myself.

MrsEdamame:  I’m a fairly blunt person, I’d ask them to leave myself. Dress and all. You can pretty much get away with anything in a wedding dress. No way to know if they’re looking for an opportunity to lift the card box, which had a fair bit of money in it.

I’d be contacting the police and trying to press charges for theft.  It’s a private party, not a free for all.
