WEDDING CRASHING 101

WEDDING CRASHING 101

In honor of this week’s episode of my current favorite tv series “THE BOLD TYPE” and Maroon 5’s music video “SUGAR” I will be dishing out some tips and tricks on wedding crashing. Though you’d think that it’d be an easy feat to accomplish, think again. Wedding crashing requires a serious poker face, thinking on the fly and some serious spontaneity.

Let me give you a quick recap, I have had the blue dress in the photos for a while now but the perfect event for it never came along (Sad face emoji). So I decided enough is enough and spontaneously suggested to my friends to crash a wedding I heard about during the week. (Happy face emoji) Yolo y’all!

Funny enough, there is actually an APP for wedding crashers, They really do have an app for everything! However for those who just like to do it the old fashioned way, I read up on a few tips and tricks about wedding crashing. Check it out and for an extra bonus, see Maroon 5’s Sugar video.

1. Dress to impress.

The first rule of wedding crashing? Don’t look like you’re crashing a wedding. Before you step foot on the premises, figure out if you need an access card to enter and what the other guests are wearing. Are they dressed to the moon or looking laidback? Once you determine the dress code, make sure you look the part! I showed up in a beautiful electric blue dress and I was feeling more than fly.

2. Get your story straight.

Practice, practice, practice! For starters, know the names of the bride and groom. Not sure how? Also, be sure you have your own story in place. Are you and your fellow crasher cousins? Friends or lovers? Engaged or married? Whatever you decide, rehearse how you’ll introduce yourself and each other. You can only imagine how many times I practiced saying “I’m engaged to one of the grooms men .”

3. Bring a present.

Since you’re crashing the party (and possibly getting some free booze, food and fun out of the deal), it’s only right to bring a gift. It doesn’t need to be big and flashy, but showing up with a little something will not only help you blend in, but might also help ease some the guilt you’ll inevitably feel from showing up uninvited.

4. Blend in by standing out.

Okay, we might have learned this from the movie “Wedding Crashers,” but I really listened to this advice. When it came time for the bouquet toss, the girl got up front and center and jumped higher than we even thought was physically possible to try and get those flowers. Only if you are bold though, No pressure lol.

5. Bust a move.

To avoid talking to the family of the bride and groom some more, you can head to the dance floor and pull out some serious moves…If weddings were made for especially cheesy dancing, I and my girlfriends, the twins would definitely take the price. At least we owned it lol.

Have a great week everyone and get your hustle gloves on.

XoXo,

OLAR
