Rent-a-Guest

051109-bridesmaidsIn the days of cutting guest lists to save money, the idea of renting guests seems strange. But in Japan, where large formal weddings are the norm, one Tokyo firm can pad your guest list if you don’t have enough attendees, if you’re worried your fiance might have more friends there than you, or if you’re not comfortable inviting your boss. For $200, you can hire a guest to come to your wedding. You pay more if you want them to perform at your wedding (which guests often do) or make a speech.
