Which is more exciting: Your wedding day or meeting Brad Pitt?

One British bride didn't have to make that extremely difficult decision when the future Mr. Angelina Jolie dropped by her nuptials over the weekend.

The actor, filming the World War II thriller "Fury" at Pinewood Studios in England, posed for a few snapshots at the wedding of Abi Lingwood, 28, at nearby Stoke Poges, an English village just northwest of London.

The 49-year-old actor joined the festivities after her husband, Daniel, 41, spotted him at the bar of the Stoke Park Hotel on Friday, according to the Maidenhead-Advertiser.

"My husband said to me Brad Pitt was at the bar and you have got to come with me so he dragged me across the hotel," she said. "I thought he was joking."

So she asked him if he would pose for pictures with her and her new husband.

"He said, 'Sure, no problem,' and said, 'Congratulations and I hope you have had a great day and let's have a picture,' " she added. "And he said I looked nice. He was really nice."

Well, how nice. It isn't technically crashing if the bride and groom invite you, right?

"The girls were going wild and mental so Brad Pitt and the people he was with went upstairs to a room for their meeting."

And we can see why. In a photo obtained by the newspaper, Pitt poses with the newlyweds and also shows off his newly shorn haircut.

The story "has gone global in BMW and has become more of a talking point than my wedding, but that is fine," Lingwood said.

Now we ask you, which is more exciting: Your own wedding or meeting Brad Pitt?
