I have never done it to a WC member but I don't see anything wrong with it.

We got married on a public beach on Australia Day so you could only imagine how many strangers we had looking at us get married. I estimated there were about 300 on top of those people actually invited?? I did actually pick out old cousins and aunts of mine that weren't invited to the wedding (hadn't seen them in years and not particularly close) whom had come to have a squizz, didn't bother me, I was just excited to see them again.

I wasn't too happy at some weirdo lady that my mum "sort of knows" barge into my parents house to watch us getting ready though. I thought that was rude!

I know already that I will have some people at our ceremony that aren't actually invited to the wedding.
Mothers of two of my closest friends who will have the kids on the day will come cos they want to see and the kids do too.
I don't mind cos I get along with them all. I would prob find it weird if one of my mum's friends who she works with or something come for a squiz cos I don't know them at all but I prob wouldn't notice anyway cos I am pretty oblivious.
If it were someone on here I would prob like to know beforehand just so I could give them a wave or hello.
We have our ceremony outside in a public area too so I guess it is to be expected that there will be onlookers. I love seeing a bridal party when I am out & about but I like to look and definately not interfere. You are looking your absolute best so it is nice to have a few extras see that.

Oh dear that is awful! I will have to make it clear to my mum that only my parents, grandparents and BMs are to be at my house when I am getting ready. I know my aunty will want to be there (only because she wants to be one of the first to see the dress) but I don't want them to see me until I arrive at the church.

I know I will have a few people at the church who arent technically invited such as friends of my mum's and also people I work with. I wish I could invite everyone but our numbers are already at a maximum and it just get's too crazy. I dont mind people coming and having a look-I know I have done it to people who I havent actually been invited to and they havent minded (I checked with them beforehand).

Beckstar, I am with you not wanting everyone there while we are getting ready.
It will be me, my mum, 2 moh's & my 2 kids.
Lucky for me it is at my house we are getting ready so I have control over this.
Manda, I haven't really even seen any s&t's besides yours so not sure where to start. I will give it a go but might check out a few others first.

I am already guilty of stalking a wedding. It was accidental, there just happened to be one on when we went to check out the park where we are getting married. We stayed in the car and watched from the car park but had a good view. I think it is fine as long as you are not right in their face. I don't mind if people want to watch mine, I guess I don't get a choice as being a park there will be other people around. As long as I don't know they are there that's ok. I am getting ready in a hotel room so hopefully I can kick people out and give strict instructions on who is allowed in the room with me.

I don't know if it's wedding stalking but I asked our chapel manager if we could take our photographer there to have a look around. She told me to come when there was a wedding on and just come and have a look then. I'm worried though if the couple might get a bit weirded out about some randoms coming in to have a look. But I guess it would be unavoidable sometimes huh?

Considering most weddings are in public places there isn't alot we can all do. But like others have said, I would be flattered if someone came to look at my wedding!
But if it's someone I kinda know eg from here I want them to come over after and say hi!!!!!

yeh see i think someone you chat to on here is ok, cause we are all on here talking about weddings together so it makes sense we would want to see each others big day when it finally comes... :D

a complete stranger would be a bit odd... or someone from work or something that you didnt know well :lol:

I would love it! Maybe...I can actually think of two girls I would hate to see on my wedding day but that's just because they both irratate me like crazy and are very rude and seem to like being in the spotlight.

I'm obviously not close to either of them but one of them came along to the hospital when I was being induced with the kidlet and that pissed me off so I imagine it'd be the same on my wedding day!

But everyone else I'd love seeing! It'd make me feel extra special. I'd love to stalk Buggy's wedding since she's having it near where I live but we're getting married on the same day :lol: Maybe we'll run into each other at the hotel since we're both staying there on our wedding night! I don't know but that whole thing cracks me up.

I wouldn't mind if people came to have a sticky at my wedding, as long as they were subtle about it. I have a problem with when they make it obvious that they are there etc.

I don't mind if people come and stalk my wedding, as long as they don't go and help themselves to the finger food afterwards or whatever.

I wouldnt mind it, but it might be a bit odd seeing as my wedding and reception is at one small enclosed place... it would be very hard not to notice someone there.

I wouldn't mind it I don' think. In saying that I know we are going to get onlookers as our reception is in the casino gardens near the pool, so I am sure that there are going to be a few people having a sticky beak :lol:

I dont think it is stalking, if you have indicated that you would love to come see the wedding and then go and she was ok with it then there is no problem. People at beaches and things look at weddings held on teh beach and stop to look dont they?

Id be super flattered if people came and stalked my wedding. Hell i wouldnt mind if people turned up to the ceremony As long as they realise that the reception is off limits.
