A kiwi woman was on holiday when she accidentally found herself crashing a wedding being held at her hotel.
Members of the family were totally fooled.
They even let her take the bouquet.
Liv recapped the awkward story on The Edge Breakfast.
I'm staying in a hotel and I was walking past the washroom and there was like, what looks like a buffet going on. And so I was like, ‘Oh, they've got a buffet.’
As I was walking in, they were like taking people's names.
So I wrote my name down.
I went into the buffet, and then I walked in and it was only like little, it wasn't a full breakfast buffet, you know?
I just had little savouries and stuff like that.
And then they closed the door and were like, ‘okay, come into the next room now.’
So I was thinking, Oh, this must be the proper buffet
Can I stop you for a second?
What are you dressed in at this point?
You've just gotten up and you've gone down.
Okay, this is the funniest part.
Okay, I'm in jeans and just a singlet.
But let me tell you that everyone in this room was so casual.
There was a girl that was wearing shorts, jandals and a white hoodie.
Oh, yeah. So you don't, you're not thinking to much,
you know ‘Oh, my God, I might be at a wedding right now.’
Like people were in jandals.
So you've gone down and you've seen the little buffet you write down your name.
You're cool, that's a bit of me. You go into the next room.
There is an altar and seats at this point, I'm like, I need to get out of here.
And everyone's sitting down. I don't know what came through me.
I was like, You know what? I'm going to sit down. And I'm going to watch this wedding.
Bear in mind, there was not many people here.
They were all underdressed.I had no idea what was going on. I'm here by myself. I thought, why not?
So I sat at the back and then this lady was like, ‘no, no, no. You've got to come sit up
here. You've got to sit up here.’ And I'm like, Oh, okay. She was like, ‘Oh, you're Australian.
You're part of Crystal's side of the family.’
And I was like, Yep.
And sat next to her for the whole wedding. She turned out to be the grandma of the groom,
and she thought I was just from the other side of the family, which was fun.
And then when they came back from the photos, I was in the lobby and the grandma sees me and she's like, ‘Oh, you've got to come to the reception.’
And I was like, ‘Oh, no,I got to go now.’
And they were like, ‘Why? Why would you not come to the reception? So many people have pulled out?’
And she started making me feel really guilty and I'm like, Oh my God, I don't want to let my
new family down like that.
And I was sat next to a girl who was one of the cousins, and she honestly thought she knew me, or she knew my family. Somehow she was showing me
photos of her wedding saying like, ‘I would have been invited if it weren't for COVID’.
But then they go to do the throw of the bouquet, obviously.
And I was like, Oh, I'm going to sit this one out, obviously.
But no, grandma comes over and she's like, ‘no, no, no, you got to go.’
And of course, fate would have it, that I caught the bouquet
Who do people think you are?
Because this is where I would start getting caught out.
But the bride must have gone. ‘Who is she?’
It was very convenient as well that my table was the groom's table.
And they all thought that I was part of the bride's side of the family.
It was towards the end that the bride came over.
She gave me the bouquet and I was like, no, no, no, you keep it.
And then the groom came over, I was like, you know,
I've got to get out of here because I'm about to get caught out.
And this is going to be really embarrassing.
The groom came over.
Did you get called out?
No, I didn't get caught out.
I did. The old. ‘I just need to go to the bathroom’ and never showed my face again.
It was great.
And I got a slice of the wedding cake as well.
