New Jersey bride wants to buy wedding crashers a drink

By Ben Hooper

Aug. 9 (UPI) -- A New Jersey bride is searching for a pair of wedding crashers who left a card and a $1 gift so she can buy them a drink as a thank you gesture.

Karen Fox said in a Facebook post the couple attended her Sunday wedding to husband Michael and left a congratulations card with a handwritten message:


"Dear Fox's,

1) Congratulations!

2) Sorry for crashing your wedding.

3) Best of luck!"

The card contained a photo of the couple and a $1 bill the two strangers wrote was a "buck for luck."

Aimee Boardman, the maid of honor at the wedding, said she spotted the couple at the wedding but didn't question them.

"The bride also told me the next morning that she believed she might have had wedding crashers. She said she had noticed the couple, assuming the male was her husband's friend that she hadn't met," Boardman told the Parsippany Patch. "But then she met that one friend that she hadn't met before, later in the night. She said every time she went to address it she got side tracked."


"They did not try to go unnoticed at the wedding, they asked for an extra seat at the table they sat at, they ate dinner, drank, danced (even convincing people at their table to dance and even danced with the bride's nieces). Unbelievable!" Boardman said.

Fox said she wants to buy the couple a drink.

"I'd like to thank everyone who shared our special day with us... especially these 2! Well played my friends... well played!!! I need to meet these people and buy them a drink. Professional job! You gave us the best wedding present anyone could ever ask for!" she wrote.
