I'm not sure if I really want to draw attention to this app, but it is important to know it is out there...
Corsage Crasher is an app that takes Wedding Crashing to a whole new level: a gaming level. Professional Wedding Crashers get points based on the weddings they crash.
This app crawls wedding directory sites from around the world to provide the date, location and key information of upcoming weddings (including intimate details about the couple, so the Crasher can develop a believable cover story!)
When the Crasher crashes the wedding, he or she must check in to the app to earn their points. They can earn bonus points if they complete specific "Wedding Challenges" (shudder).
So how can you avoid Wedding Crashers crashing your wedding?
- use a very detailed seating plan with assigned seats for each guest
- have a wedding planner on-site, they will help your guests find their seats and be aware of anyone "not on the list"
- don't post too many details about your event on public forums, those sites are where this program gets its information
- hold your wedding at a one-event location, crashers are less likely to crash a wedding, if it is at an exclusive location
