We’ve all seen the movie and probably had a good chuckle at Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn and as they would show it, crashing a wedding can be quite fun and oddly enough pretty easy. We’ve all been to hotels where there’s been a wedding, it’s a pretty common occurance, weddings, and hotels. There are basically two ways to go about this. The first is of course that when you happen to be at a hotel and there’s a wedding, either introduce yourself to the bride and or groom and wish them well and kind of slide in to the party, which may or may not be successful – ie. they could ask you to leave although that would be weird.
The other more surefire method is to do a little advance planning. Pick out a nice hotel in your town, that has a good bar / restaurant. Come around spring time when everyone is getting married, make it a point to go and have a cocktail sort of mid afternoon at the hotel. Have a cocktail dress (women) and at least a dark suit and tie in your car ready to roll. If there’s no wedding that evening, no worries. If there is, then heck your ready. Get changed and pull an Owen Wilson.
The trick of course is to try and simply blend in. The easiest way to sneak an entrance, watch the bathroom, as another guest goes in, go behind them. On your way out, introduce yourself, or if that’s to bold, just walk two or three steps behind them into the reception.
