Guilty as charged! Editor and hubby crashed a wedding on Friday evening. I posted this on my facebook that afternoon, “OMG! I think we are going to crash a wedding tonight!!! I have never done anything like this in my life. Suggestions? Can’t believe hubby said yes to this! Oh my!!!”
A little background about us. We are not people who would crash a wedding. Really! We would not even move seats at a baseball game or concert to get a better seat. We follow the rules and we are okay with that.
So when we got the call about a wedding around the corner that we were asked to check out, I said “no” but then thought about it again – it could be a fun adventure! So I called my husband and he said, “Sure. Why not?” So I called my contact back and we were on.
But the best part of the pre-adventure were the facebook comments!!!
Doug M. said, “come up with some great back story, working in the US embassy in Bhutan or something”
Monica S. wrote, “The funny thing about weddings, and you know this… the B and G are so overwhelmed with the day, they will forget some of the people they invite – avoid them, and mingle with the guests… all will be good… just do it!”
Don C. reported, “Right after World War II, my dad and his brothers and friends used to crash weddings all the time. Lots of weddings tonight to choose from, have fun!”
And theBrideScoop writer David Himmel said, “Journalism. Get wired before you leave the house. Make sure to snap lots of photographs and take notes—on cocktail napkins. Act like me on a bender with something to prove. Call me if you need bail or a ride home. Or an alibi. Not that anyone can prove it. But that’s not the point, now is it?”
So we got all dressed up and we went. A five part series this week on the evening including the entertainment, food, venue, how we got invited and the BIG reveal! Stay tuned.
