Crash a Wedding



Wedding crashing is the act of attending a wedding celebration without an invitation, particularly when the person or persons who turn up have a profound impact.

There are various reasons why people crash weddings.

Some of the most common reasons for crashing a wedding in real life are:

  • To see a person they know, such as a relative, friend, or ex get married, even if they are not invited.
  • To come with another person who is invited whom they wish to accompany.
  • For something that is offered at the event, such as free catered food or alcoholic beverages. Crashing for this reason is not always cost-effective. With the high cost of the clothes 4. required for a fancy wedding (presuming one doesn't rewear them), this may out-do that of the food, which often can be obtained for less from a restaurant.
  • To steal money or gifts from the bride, groom, or guests.
  • For the thrill of deviating from mores and etiquette or for the social prestige within a peer group of defying the broader culture.
  • At celebrity weddings, crashing may occur from those who wish to mingle with the celebrities or catch paparazzi photo shots.
  • There have also been reports of celebrities crashing the weddings of strangers they encounter.

I didn't know the groom or the bride and I was already dressed so I attended the Ceremony then afterwards, the bridal party invited me for the reception. I had a good time though...
