The wedding crashers can try to invade your special day. It can be really annoying getting guests that you’ve not specifically invited on your wedding, when you’ve not planned for catering for an extra person.
Here’s how to deal with the wedding crashers.
Children could actually be crashers on your wedding and like adults, they can also have impact on your wedding.
You wouldn’t want them running around the hall and disrupting the wedding events.
You can deal with the children by deciding if you want them at your wedding or not.
If you do not want them, make it clear to the wedding guests that you want your wedding to be an ‘adults only’. You can make this known in your save-the-date cards or wedding website.
If the children however show up at your wedding as a wedding crasher, do not throw a tantrum. The last you would want is to get nervous and furious on your special day. You should try and accommodate them because they have actually accompanied their Parent or guardian.
You can tell your wedding coordinator to inform the Parents to handle the situation with the children. When the child tries to create a scene, the Parent can try to control the child or kindly walk the child to the back of the hall till he gets stable.
- The Strangers
This usually occur at public venues such as hotels and restaurants, which is very easy for anyone to enter through the front door.
If you’re having a big wedding with large number of wedding guests, it might be difficult to find the strangers amidst the invited guests. If you’ve also invited people that you’ve not seen before; such as your mother’s co-worker or your mother-in-law’s nephews that live far away, it might be difficult spotting the wedding crashers.
Consider meeting the unfamiliar faces one-by-one and asking them politely to introduce themselves.
You can prevent the strangers by appointing a smart close friend or relative to study those that are too close to the buffet table or the bar. Most wedding crashers are there for the foods and drinks since the wedding isn’t important to them.
If you however find someone that neither you nor both Parents can recognize, then tell the wedding coordinator to kindly walk them to the door.
- The Wedding Vendors
Some wedding vendors may try not to act professionally. They may want to feel like the main guests.
Inform your vendors beforehand the rules of the contract and what their entitlements are.
If any vendors tries to break the agreement, your wedding coordinator or a bridesmaid can inform the vendor that the privilege he’s having is actually for the wedding guest.
