Why are they coming if they aren’t invited? I don’t understand why they would even think that is okay, unless the received an invitation or personal request for their attendance by yourself or fiance.

Contact them and say that they are not invited. You will have no food for them because they are not counted in your headcount for the caterer which you’ve already given. (lie if you haven’t given it yet, lol)

Good luck. I hope that doesn’t happen to me. I am dumbfounded- I didn’t think people would even think it was okay to do that!

Do people think its ok to just show up because its a public park? On the day of your wedding I would designate someone to do a little crowd control. A friend of mine held her wedding at a park on a beautiful spring day which resulted in the general public being everywhere! She asked her cousin to simply “stand guard” and ask that people not bother the ceremony area which everyone seemed to cooperate with. For the reception she had rented a park pavillion so it was easier to keep people away. If your worried that people are going to crash the reception I would speak up now and let them know that its great that they want to see you get married but its too bad that your budget doesn’t allow for them to attend the reception. Hopefully you don’t have a ton of wedding crashers.
