What should you do if you catch a crasher at your wedding?
We can sum it up in two words: complete hysterics.
Calmly ask the wedding planner or other event professional to request that they leave.
By calling in the troops or throwing a hissy fit, you take the attention off your nuptials and place it squarely on the crasher. As long as he's not hurting anything, simply ask him to leave and continue with your magical evening.
Call the cops.
