Inspired by the hit Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson comedy, a South Florida couple is asking random strangers to attend their "Wedding Crashers"-themed wedding.

It's safe to say it certainly beats a "Runaway Bride" themed wedding.

Paul Johnson and Shelly Osterhout tell the Fort Myers News Press "the more the merrier" for the big day.

They're hosting the Oct. 10 wedding at an outdoor shopping plaza called the Bell Tower shops.

The couple, who met online, are promising an unforgettable surprise.

They're planning for up to 1,600 people.

The couple will honeymoon in Washington D.C. and Manhattan, and say they're looking forward to the surprise of seeing who attends, both new friends and old ones.

 By the way, it's not open bar – but the shops will remain open so guests can buy their own food and drinks.
