(Newser) – A London bride is so desperate for wedding guests that she’s advertising online to find them, the BBC reports. Save for her mother and father, the bride-to-be’s family isn’t making the trek from her native Ukraine to watch the nuptials, so she’s put an ad on a classifieds site, seeking 30 “decent” guests to sit with her.

Prospective wedding crashers will have to submit a photo and write a bit about themselves. Winning applicants will get seats at the reception. She’s also looking for volunteer bridesmaids, groomsmen, and ushers.
