One bride found out the hard – and hilarious – way that you should always double-check the phone number before you hit “send.”

A couple’s accidental text is now going viral after being posted to Twitter and Instagram. According to, Detroit couple Kristen and Rob texted out invites to their June nuptials and post-ceremony BBQ, accidentally sending one to a stranger by mistake.

As seen in the exchange, the recipient responds, “You have the wrong number but me and my boys will be there.”

When the bride-to-be tries to backtrack, the uninvited guest replies, “We still coming.” The photo accompanying the story shows the dude wasn’t lying – the newlyweds were joined by a throng of new friends during their wedding photos.
