Wedding Crashers??

Ok maybe I'm just hearing this for the first time, but I was listening to the radio this morning and they were talking about people crashing weddings. I thought that was just uninvited guest who come and eat a $100 meal and drink on ur tab. I am dreading the "extras" that might show up, but not because I thought that they may be stealing the gifts!?

When I first heard them say it I thought there's no way people are really showing up at weddings and having the guts to actually steal gifts, but they were talking about it on the radio and sure enough like 20 listeners called in to say they had been stolen from on their wedding day!

I'm not talking about ghetto weddings, I'm talking sophistacted platinum weddings. One bride reported thousands in stolen cash. Seriously? You would think it's the hired help right? No! It's the guests!

Bride's were calling in and saying they had hired security to man the gift table! I would hate to have to do that!! How tacky!? So now I'm really nervous! Not because I feel like our guests are going to snatch and run, but what if someone comes that I'm not expecting (as a date) and feels the need for a five finger discount?

Thankfully our wedding and reception is at a gated resort so only the guest list will be allowed to drive in with the guest that they name before coming to the wedding. As for me, I think I'm going to my best to just not worry about this craziness, but I bet you my mom's going to keep one eye out at all times. ;-) Watch out!


  1. Oh my gosh I haven't heard about this! I guess it makes sense though, there usually is a stack of envelopes just full of $

    Sad that a girl can't even enjoy her wedding day without worrying about some greedy guest nowadays!! Jeesh

  2. WHAT?! Ok so I thought that was just a movie!!
    (and I realize I'm commenting apologies)
    but seriously - WTF people?! I cannot believe it! What is the world coming to??
    Sounds like your wedding will have good security/precautions so this won't happen.

  3. People don't surprise me anymore. How sad. I'm hoping nothing like that happens to us. We may have to have someone baby sit the gift table! This is something I didn't even think about, so thanks:)

  4. Yes. Don't worry about this. It's not going to happen to you. :)

  5. I'm sure your wedding is going to be amazing and nothing will go missing :)

    By the way, I gave your blog an award! :)
