@VirginiaMarie: Honestly, go collect all the money from your FI’s friends. They had no business doing that. Or tell them to give back the money and find some “real” guests.

Yeah, I went to high school in a small town. I had a couple of friends last year who had weddings and ended up having 30-100 wedding crashers because people want the free booze.

Have you thought of getting security to prevent wedding crashers as it seems like it can be a possiblity now?

I’d remove those full names, lest they find this thread and find you calling them “not wedding guest worthy.”

*eta: oh good, so glad those aren’t their real names!  Didn’t want there to be even more guest drama!

@VirginiaMarie: Don’t say you feel bad!!! Oh my gosh! These guys are turning your wedding into a party with a cover charge! How in the world did they turn the tables so that you’re feeling bad?! They should be ashamed of themselves!!!

Um on one side, that is totally freaking weird and rude and not cool. On the other, I think I would be flattered that these people think my wedding would be so awesome that they would PAY to come it…

@VirginiaMarie: Or even better. If you get security or people watching the doors you should have their names on the list and have them TURNED away.

Okay, I understand now……(I still think you guys have to be way cool, though <weg>)

Yeah, I would be pissed too.  It’s not like those guys have formal dates or girlfriends.  The plus ones were a courtesty and you are now paying for meals, alcohol, etc for girls you really don’t know.  I would let the guys who are selling their plus ones that you know about and that you aren’t appreciative.  You are footing the bill and they are profiting.  It’s  not appropriate for you to fund a college reunion on your wedding day. 

Sorry….. 🙁

@VirginiaMarie:Girl, I would totally send out an email to these groomsmen asking them WHY they are bringing these girls and telling them that now there has to be a cash bar (or a drink ticket bar – as in, 2 drinks per person…) and see what they’re response is.

Now I know you’re actually having an open bar.  But maybe a little white lie (for now) and a calling-them-out-on-their-stupid-actions will set them straight.

I would be SO PISSED if I were you.  And I’d want the $$ these girls were offering.  People don’t realize how much weddings cost!!

Although, between these shenanigans and The Crazies, I would LOVE to be  fly on the wall for your wedding.

Can your Fiance talk to his guys about this?? I mean, those girls must not respect themselves enough if they are willing to pay to be an escort? AND the groomsmen took the money?

Geez,  you could have sold tickets yourself and made some money!  Well, probably not, but I’ve never, ever heard of anything like this.
