Does your dream wedding include a celebrity cameo? These days, it may be a possibility! At the end of May, Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson showed up at a stranger's wedding rehearsal in Santa Barbara. Now we learn that John Travolta surprised a young couple by accepting their spontaneous wedding invitation. While getting his pilot's license renewed in Georgia, the actor stopped into a bar and chatted up a couple who were getting married the next day. They invited him to stop by -- and sure enough, he showed up to the ceremony, and posed for pictures afterwards.
Amazingly, this has happened more than twice. Here are seven other celebrities who have crashed strangers' weddings!
Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez
Back in happier times, Bieber and Gomez were driving around in Malibu when they heard "One Less Lonely Girl" being belted on a karaoke machine. They stopped the car and followed the sound -- right to a wedding reception. "WEDDING CRASHERS last night! hahaha. too funny. crazy," Justin tweeted the next day.
Last summer, the former President showed up unexpectedly at an Irish-American couple's wedding reception in Cork, Ireland. Turns out he was staying at the same resort, as the guest of an Irish-American philanthropy group. "I thanked him for all he did for the Peace Process and for being such a friend of Ireland," the groom later told the Irish Independent.
The NBA player thrilled two Miami Heat fans when they ran into him at the Coconut Grove Ritz Carlton. Even though they were literally just about to get married, the couple snapped a picture. "I was like, 'Who cares? It's a photo with LeBron!' It was really unexpected and exciting," said the bride.
She's a class act, even when she's crashing a wedding! During the filming of The Iron Lady at a British town hall, Meryl (dressed as Margaret Thatcher, natch) took a moment to applaud a couple who had just tied the knot. The cast later sent the couple champagne, flowers, and a picture signed by the leading lady.
Note: if you invite a famous person to your wedding, be sure to save them a seat. The Queen of England herself blindsided a Manchester bride and groom in June 2012 when she accepted their half-joking wedding invite. "Basically it was a wedding gift for us," said the groom.
Robin Williams (and John Travolta)
Yep -- John Travolta has done this before! Way back in 1977, he and Williams were having a drink in Santa Barbara and decided to crash a nearby wedding. According to Williams, the guests thought they were celebrity impersonators until Travolta started to dance!
