Wedding Crashers – sure we’ve all seen the movie, watched the Maroon 5 “Sugar” music video (Adam Levine crashing your wedding? Yes, please!!), but are there really “wedding crashers” out there?
Unfortunately, there are people who may find amusement by sneaking into a wedding either undetected to score some free food or drinks, dance with grandma, or in the worst case scenario, flat out cause an issue. You can read some stories from real brides here. This is especially something to be mindful of at venues that are in hotels, popular public parks or beaches, for example, Golden Gardens’ Bathhouse.
he Elegant Affairs team has been able to spot a few attempted crashers and assist with removing them from the wedding. The EA team in the past has been able to politely check with close friends and family of the couple to ensure that suspected person or couple should truly be there. If there is a hesitation or concern, the EA will take care of the issue on your behalf without causing a scene.
While we may laugh off the concept of wedding crashers it happen more often then we'd like, and it’s important to have people on the lookout, especially if your venue is in a high visibility public place.
