Valerie Bertinelli is the most recent celebrity to surprise her family and friends by inviting them over for a party that turned out to be her wedding.
I know of at least a few other celebrities who have done this (although it's late - I'll have to name names tomorrow).
I can't help but think that it would be much easier to "stop by" for just a party than a wedding, so I'm imagining what would happen if a guest went to this party with the intention of staying for an hour or so and then found out it was a wedding (in other words, something that would take much longer before an appropriate leave time). There could be a guest who didn't support the marriage. There could be a guest who did not want to participate in the wedding (i.e. attend) for spiritually conflicting reasons.
At Bertinelli's wedding, her ex-husband was there. I know they are friends and so amicable and so forth, but I sincerely hope she told him ahead of time.
What do y'all say? Is any part of this rude?
