Woman walks out of friend’s wedding over ‘outrageous’ rule on food menu

Complaints in regards to the food at a wedding are widespread – whether or not it is the standard or amount.

But you are likely to preserve the problems quiet, as you do not need to smash the bride and groom’s large day.

However, one lady walked out of her friend’s wedding over their “outrageous” choice to serve meals in line with gender.

She stated the wedding was “perfectly pleasant” till it bought to the wedding breakfast, the place all hell broke free.

The bride and groom had two menus – one for girls, and one for males, which understandably wasn’t welcomed by everybody.

Writing in regards to the concern on Mumsnet, the visitor stated that girls loved a prawn risotto starter, whereas males had been served a mushroom risotto.



The male visitors loved a roast beef essential

For the principle course, males indulged in roast beef, whereas girls had grilled rooster and new potatoes.

Women tucked into grilled rooster and new potatoes for the principle course and males had been served roast beef.

And for dessert, the boys had a chocolate bomb and girls had been supplied strawberry shortcake.

Posting on Mumsnet, the lady wrote: “It was perfectly pleasant until we sat down to the wedding breakfast to see the menu was divided by sex.

“Everybody on the desk was outraged however nobody stated something. I took one bit of my prawn risotto earlier than deciding to depart.

“Apparently the groom’s parents are very traditional and this was their idea but for goodness sake, the groom (and this is probably outing me but sod it) works in a very progressive part of women’s health and the bride is a feminist who attends rallies and feminist events with me.

“You would suppose they’d have minimize out that bulls**t as quickly because it was steered.”

According to guests who actually stayed the entire evening, women were given a piece of wedding cake later on, while the men had a glass of whisky.

While the majority agreed that the split was a ridiculous and offensive idea, they thought she shouldn’t have walked out.

One wrote: “I think YWBU [you were being unreasonable]. Yes it was incredibly sexist and outdated, but at a wedding that you are a guest at I think you should have kept your thoughts to yourself. How must it have made the bride and groom feel to see (or find out later – which they will) that you walked out? Not a great wedding memory for them. It was rude of you.”

Another replied: “A bit of an overreaction if I might say. What happened to couples doing what they want at their own wedding?”

A 3rd agreed she dealt with it badly, writing: “That is utterly bonkers. We’d have had a bloody good laugh about it though and switched our food if we wanted to. I’d not have left.”

One individual (probably the bride) was left fuming, as she blasted: “I believe you had been being unreasonable.

“Yes it was incredibly sexist and outdated, but at a wedding that you are a guest at I think you should have kept your thoughts to yourself.

“How must it have made the bride and groom feel to see that you walked out?

“Not a great wedding memory for them. It was rude of you.”

But others agreed she was right to leave.

“You are not being unreasonable. It’s difficult to believe that the B&G thought this level of sexism was acceptable, even if their parents did. Utterly bizarre” wrote one woman.

Another joked: “Apart from the oddness of doing this at all, I fail to see why prawn risotto and strawberry cheesecake are feminine.

“Was the roast beef served rare?”
