Times we've been invited to brush shoulders with celebrities

Hey Cats

Top times we’ve been invited to hang out with celebrities

The biggest wedding of the year happened at the weekend, and many lucky members of the public were
invited to be a part of it. And, that’s not the only time that we’ve been invited to walk with the rich and
famous. What other occasions have we scrubbed up to walk among A-listers? Together with luxury engagement rings retailer, Angelic Diamonds, we take a look at other occasions where we’ve scrubbed up to walk among A-listers.

Getting married at the Grammy’s

Unlike some of us who want a private affair for their wedding, 33 couples were invited to exchange their
vows on a bigger scale in 2014.
They were asked to marry on stage at the 56th Grammy Awards which were held in Los Angeles. To celebrate
their love and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s single Same Love, heterosexual and homosexual couples were
married on stage. The marriages were officiated by Queen Latifah who was deputised for the day so she was
able to pronounce the couples as married.
The ceremony was a surprise for many — neither the guests or viewers knew what was going to happen.
The idea was decided the year before, and a casting director was hired to gather the happy couples. They
then had to sign contracts and were not allowed to tell anyone about what was going to happen. They had
to attend multiple rehearsals to prepare themselves for the biggest day of their lives!

Harry and Meghan’s wedding

From weddings on the Grammys to Harry and Meghan’s special day at Windsor Castle — this was another
event that the public were invited to be a part of.
Lord Lieutenant offices chose members of the public to invite to the big day. These individuals were able to
see the royals arrive at the chapel and see the procession in their chosen carriage after the ceremony.
The newlyweds stated that those who are invited should be from a range of backgrounds and those who
have “shown strong leadership and those who have served their communities” should also be selected.
The stories of some of the chosen guests were then told through the Kensington Palace Twitter page.
Those who did attend the wedding got to brush shoulders with the likes of the Beckhams, Selena Williams
and George Clooney.

Keeping up with Kim

The dreams of Kardashian super-fans all came true when a selected few were invited to have brunch with
Kim in 2015.
It was in celebration of her 35th birthday, and Kim invited people that she follows on social media to meet
up with her in Los Angeles. The meeting took place at the Four Seasons in Westlake Village and guests
enjoyed food and drinks, took photos with the reality star and got their phone cases signed.
As an added surprise, her husband Kanye turned up with daughter North. After the event, Kim said on
Twitter "I love you guys so much and am so grateful to have met you guys today!" and sent personalised
thank-you cards to those who were invited.

Listening to music with Taylor

Superstar-singer, Taylor Swift has been known to connect with her fans on numerous occasions. One
Christmas, she personally wrapped gifts for her supporters for a festive treat. She’s also been known to
invite her super-fans for secret listening sessions ahead of a couple of her albums.
Ahead of the release of her 1989 album, the singer requested the company of some of her fans at her
home. She served them pumpkin chocolate chip cookies that she’d personally baked and gave everyone
free album merchandise. Guests got photos with the superstar, held her awards and even listened to her
talking about her relationship with ex-One Direction star, Harry Styles.
She hosted a similar event in 2017. This time, she invited fans to a listening party in London to hear her
sixth studio album, Reputation. Taylor handpicked 100 fans to attend the event and they enjoyed chicken
nuggets, M&Ms and Reputation-themed cookies.

Helping Chrissy make banana bread

Fans of Chrissy Teigen were invited to help make her the perfect banana bread loaf. When she needed six
brown bananas for her baking, she invited her followers for help.
In exchange for their help, Chrissy offered fans a signed cookbook, a pair of her husband John’s underwear
and a Becca make-up palette. Photos were posted on social media of Chrissy’s assistant picking up the
bananas and of course, her cooking the bread.  

These aren’t the only times that we’ve been invited to hang with celebrities either. Always be prepared,
as it could be you next!
