The Rules of Wedding Crashing (From Wedding Crashers)
Trivia For Wedding Crashers (IMDB.Com) ^ | September 18, 2006

TOPICS: Humor; Music/Entertainment; TV/Movies
KEYWORDS: weddingcrashers
I saw "Wedding Crashers" on the tube for the first time last night and I laughed so hard that I ached. I used to live in the D.C. area where this movie is set and there is a lot of truth to it. When living in D.C. I went to the wedding of a friend who married a Brazilian chick. At the wedding and reception there were a lot of hot Brazilian chicks who were relatives and friends of the bride. I had a great time there and had I been a bit smarter I would have crashed other weddings. These rules for wedding crashers would have been invaluable to me.

BTW, how common is wedding crashing? It sounds like FUn!

I think you need to study these rules very carfully. Please report back on how successful you were.

And of course Rule #116: "No pooftahs!"

You mean Print For Later. I swear I wished I knew about these rules when living as a single guy in the D.C. area. I had a great time at the wedding I did go to but was too clueless to put two and two together and go to other weddings.

Calling Clemenza!

Hopefully you saw the unedited version....if not, get the unedited version on dvd. Great flick. Long movie.

I too just caught up with Crashers last night. Good laugh quotient, and just enough of Walken being menacing to Vince Vaughan, but I deplored some of the ad-libbing during the dead air sequences. Either that, or the writers didn't know how to satirize the rich beyond making the sweet-looking granny rant about her "homo" grandson, etc. But I'd give it three stars.

I've heard it happens from time to time. Not on the grand scale that the movie portrays it to be. A catering hall might be holding more than one wedding at the same time. A guest from wedding number one, just might wander over to wedding number two just to take a quick peek. (No, I've never done it)

I don't want to sound disrespectful (and I am a Mitt Romney supporter) but what do Mormons do for refreshment at their weddings? Somehow weddings without at least champagne seems very wrong.

Actually that part made me laugh very hard. I mean there is a sweet looking elderly grandma and she yells very UN-PC things. I thought that was HILARIOUS! Oh and that stuff about Eleanor Roosevelt being a lesbian was hilarious as well.

Come to think of it, I did once crash a wedding party near San Bernardino. I didn't plan on it. I was had a meeting with someone at a hotel and when we got done, we noticed a wedding reception in one of the big rooms. So I just entered it (for the refreshments, not the chicks) and loaded up on food and drinks. It was a Latin wedding so the folks there liked that an obvious gringo could speak their lingo so I guess they didn't mind that I was crashing them.

We need to have Clemenza crash several weddings, using these rules, and then report back on how he made out. One plus for Clemeza is that he knows a lot about fine wines and can impress the chix with that type of knowledge. Go for it, Clemenza!

Sorry - but this movie sucked. It's the same old Vince Vaughn stick. 'Swingers' was a good movie, but beyond that, whenever he's the lead in a movie, it sucks (see 'Dodgeball').

'Old School' was good, but that was because of Will Ferrell.

I'm not a Mormon, but I don't drink. At our wedding we had punch & maybe some sodas. Actually, I don't know that I've ever been to a wedding where there was alcohol.

Hawaiian Punch with Sprite. We have it at Thanksgiving, too. My wife and her family are non-LDS and we had an open bar at our wedding.

You crashed a Latino wedding in San Bernardino and didn't get Gangbangered to death?

Actually, I don't know that I've ever been to a wedding where there was alcohol.

Huh? I can't even IMAGINE a wedding without alcohol. They just wouldn't seem right without champagne. That wedding I mentioned where my friend married a Brazilian chick was presided over by a priest. All through the ceremony, the priest kept up his clerical demeanor. When we got to the reception, everybody near the priest tried to be on their best behavior. Then the priest giddily took a sip of champagne. Then two sips. Before long he was gulping it down and when he lost his inhibitions, the rest of us did also which meant we got WILD AND CRAZY.

Frankly, weddings without booze are, well, too sober.

I think it was about 15 miles east of San Bernardino. Mostly a middle class area.

What's the difference between a Polish wedding and an Irish wake?

I saw it for the first time last night, too, and had heard it was hilarious. It was amusing, but I must be outside the age demographic. People kept telling me how hysterical "Something About Mary" was, and its charm eluded me completely.

It was nice to revisit (on film) the Inn at Perry Cabin, though.

Rule #78: The unmarried female rabbi: is she fair game? Of course she is.

What do the Wedding Crasher rules say about hitting on lesbians?

Bump! Still wondering if anyone out there has crashed weddings.

I want to see the rules about #114, Funeral Crashing! There's got to be a tremendous untapped vein there! Heard of one guy, unemployed, who bummed around for months, living off funeral food and wakes. "It beats welfare," he's quoted.
Funerals are even better than weddings for all those weird relatives you never see any other time.
Besides, there is that story about the man who stopped by a funeral service, the only mourner, and he was left the deceased's entire fortune! (Okay, it was rather moderate, but still!)

Rule #27: Don't over drink. The machinery must work in order to close.

Rule #37: At the reception, one hard drink or two beers max. A drunk crasher is a sloppy crasher.

Rule #116: Avoid redundant rules.
