Snubbed by Katie Couric and left off her wedding invite list, Matt Lauer joked to Howard Stern that the Today show motto “is just bullis--t, apparently!”

That would be the dubbing of NBC's morning show crew as America's First Family, which is laughable given the recurring strife behind the scenes.

In any case, Katie Couric and John Molner tied the knot last weekend in the Hamptons, and despite other big TV players being on hand, Lauer was not invited.

Lauer joked how he and other staff members were plotting to “crash” the wedding disguised as waiters or pest control workers, but it wasn’t meant to be.

He said he even consulted with his producers, but the idea was nixed, believing the men would look horrible breaking up the elegant occasion with schtick.

Not sure how they figure that ... wedding crashers always make for the best stories. Unless no one likes the people crashing the soiree, of course.
