Bride Gets Revenge on Couple Who Crashed Her Wedding (VIDEO)

wedding crashersFiguring out the guest list is stressful for a bride. She's got to invite some friends without guests, maybe even leave some distant family members and her mother-in-law's yoga instructor off the list. That's why it's particulary annoying when uninvited guests show up -- especially when you don't know them.

That's exactly what happened to bride Krista (Lamln) Reilly and her groom Andrew at their wedding in January.

We're talking wedding crashers!

Reilly was sitting at the reception when she noticed two people -- all decked out in fancy attire -- sitting at a table with her cousins. "I knew they didn't belong," she told her local news station.

The wedding crashers were escorted out of the party and Reilly thought that was that.

Until she saw her wedding video and photos.

The crashers appeared everywhere in the digital memories of Reilly's Big Day ... drinking free drinks, eating free food, dancing, posing for pictures. The mystery couple had a grand old time. And that's when Reilly decided to find out who they were.

Upon her mother's suggestion, she posted the couple's picture to her local news station's Facebook page, hoping that someone might be able to identify them.

Tens of thousands of people saw the photo -- including the crashers themselves, who must have been incredibly embarrassed. They reached out to Reilly with a heartfelt apology, explaining that they were guests at the resort where the wedding was held and just decided to join the party. They said it was their first time doing anything like that.

They even offered her and her new husband Andrew a gift, which she declined.



Would you have tracked down these wedding crashers or would you have let it go? Do you think their public embarrassment was "punishment" enough?

I had crashers at my wedding from the wedding in the other hotel ball room..they had no food but an open bar.. I had a buffet that was allnight continuuesouly filled... even the bride came over... she told my guest they were welcome to come and have drinks( we had a champane toast and wine and beer but no hard liquor due to some of my husbands family being over dooers) it was fun meeting new people... one of my friends even met a guy from the other wedding and ended up dating him

I watched the video this article links to and let's just say....that party couldn't have gotten much worse, crashers or not. If anything, the crashers livened it up a bit. I'd be so embarassed if I were that bride.

She totally over reacted. So what if an extra couple showed up? How did it possibly hurt having a couple of extras who clearly livened things up? Sounds to me like the bride just wanted to get her fifteen minutes of fame.

I guess the crashers felt entitled to free food and drinks at someone else's expense. I had an open bar at my reception for my guests and the bill was huge!

Is it really such a big deal?

I'm sorry, but a newlywed who focuses on a couple of wedding crashers (and even involves the news) has some sort of issue. It may be a personal or marital issue, but either way, it isn't normal to be so consumed over something that people do for a little fun. I actually feel sorry for her. Lucky groom, he's probably married someone who will spend her life making him pay for her irritational issues and hold grudges. Good luck!
