Do people really have nothing better to do with their time than crash a wedding? I really hope someone tries this at mine. They will get a good roundhouse kick to the face with my stilleto.

Is it bad that I actually find this pretty funny?

IDK – I feel like most wedding crashers are pretty harmless.  They may eat a piece of cake, have a drink and dance with your friends.  They aren’t out to destroy your reception.

@Mrs.KMM: I agree but when you do not have an open bar package, this can get pricey for the bride and groom and that’s not cool. They shouldn’t have to pay for some random crasher to drink all night.

I’d be all for it if they’re fun at the reception.

Well… and if there was only like.. 2 of them.

And one was Owen Wilson.

Can people actually get away with this?

The only way I could see a wedding crasher actually staying is if the wedding was HUGE, like 400+ but how many weddings are that big? I would think the pool of weddings to attend would be limited.

Now, I have heard of a “company crasher” who crashes company parties & that I get, because in a large company, nobody would know if that person actually worked there or not.

And that’s why all of these wedding websites should be password protected. Beyond just crashing a wedding, if you’re listed it wouldn’t be too difficult to track down your home address. By having the information out there for the world to see, you’re basically just saying “No-one will be home on Saturday, June 25th from 2pm to midnight so feel free to let yourself in and clear out the joint”.

I know of someone whose house was robbed while they were at their daughters wedding. It’s kind of hard to be joyous when all of your electronics and jewelry have been stolen.

@Legallyblondiebride: They will get a good roundhouse kick to the face with my stilleto. LOL makes me think of Napoleon Dynamite and the “round house kick to the face wearing these bad boys!?”

Honestly, my wedding is going to be so small that Fiance and I will notice right away if someone crashes, and then we would ask them to leave.

@Mrs.KMM:  I saw a huge news story a few months ago about how people are crashing weddings to steal the card boxes with monetary gifts inside.  They are also robbing the people’s home while everyone is away at the wedding.  In fact, two women were just caught on tape stealing gifts from a wedding a few weeks ago.

Yep, I’m definitely password-protecting my wedding website now. No ifs, ands, or buts. I WISH some asshat would try to stroll up in my wedding uninvited. One look at my 6’5″ Fiance and 6’8″ best man, my guess is that he’d turn right back around.
