How to Plan a Wedding Without Gatecrashing

If you’re hosting your wedding at a public venue, then there’s a chance that people will try to crash your reception.

However, if you want to reduce the chances of gatecrashing, here are some things that will help protect your event.

Appoint Someone to Handle Crashers

If you’re hosting a large wedding, it’s not as if you’ll recognize everyone there by name.  There are going to be plus ones and other guests you’ve never met before.

Ask Guests to Register

When you check off names on the list, you can avoid instances where people can say they’re someone’s invited guest or that they know so and so.

Limit Entrances

Your ability to control entrances and exits is limited due to fire codes and venue requirements, but there may be some leeway with regard to which doors your guests can use.

What to Look for to Avoid Wedding Crashers
