Celebrities at weddings. Does ANYONE have experience w/ that?
My fiance is a tour manager for some heavy hitters in the heavy metal/ rock industry. These bands/ band members/ crew are close friends of ours. People that we visit and send christmas cards to (and receive them from). They are invited to our wedding.
A few we know for certain will be there so long as there are no tour dates booked for our 1 January 2010 wedding- which is unlikely, and the reason that we chose that date.
Because we have other friends in the music industry attending, and our "normal" friends don't get all star struck we weren't prepared when *one of the guests on the periphery of our list* turned to us the other night with a "you're going to have THEM AT YOUR WEDDING?!?"
I almost had a heart attack. Not only did my day suddenly become about the showcase of bands that will be there, but now my friends are going to be harassed by my other guests?!
Has anyone had to deal w/ something like this? I know we usually have to deal w/ keeping guests away from other guests because of hostilities, but I didn't realize that there was a polar opposite to that!
I can easily talk to my guests that I think will freak out about this beforehand. That's not a problem. It's when the ball gets rolling at the wedding itself when everyone has relaxed and they think I'm not watching that I'm most worried about.
*And let me also mention, that this one person isn't the only one who will get star struck- a few family members more than likely will as well.*
