A girl walked out of her buddy’s marriage ceremony after seeing how the bride and groom deliberate to serve up meals in the course of the reception.
The couple had two menus for his or her company – one for women, and one for men.
The mum claims most company had been outraged by their concept, which they apparently selected as a result of the groom’s mother and father are “very traditional”.
For the starter, men had been served a mushroom risotto whereas female company had prawns.
Ladies tucked into grilled rooster and new potatoes for the primary course and men had been served roast beef.
For pudding, the men had a chocolate bomb and women had strawberry shortcake.
Posting on Mumsnet, the girl wrote: “It was completely nice till we sat all the way down to the marriage breakfast to see the menu was divided by intercourse.
“Everyone on the desk was outraged however nobody mentioned something. I took one little bit of my prawn risotto earlier than deciding to go away.
“Apparently the groom’s mother and father are very conventional and this was their concept however for goodness sake the groom (and that is most likely outing me however sod it) works in a really progressive a part of women’s well being and the bride is a feminist who attends rallies and feminist occasions with me.
“You would think they would have cut out that bulls**t as soon as it was suggested.”
She later discovered from company who stayed for the entire night that women got a bit of marriage ceremony cake whereas the men had a glass of whisky.
Whereas just about everybody agreed it was a ridiculous and offensive concept, many thought she should not 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 Yes it was incredibly sexist and outdated, but at a wedding that you are a guest at I think you should have kept your thoughts to yourself.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.”
One other replied: “A bit of an over reaction if I might say. What happened to couples doing what they want at their own wedding?”
A 3rd mentioned the girl ought to have simply laughed it off, 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 was utterly outraged by her behaviour. She commented: “Are you serious?! You allowed someone to pay what was probably a couple of hundred pounds per head for your attendance, just to leave because you disapproved of part of their wedding? You are a rude a******* and a shockingly bad friend.”
However others thought she was proper to go away.
One lady replied: “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.”
Was the fitting to go away her pals marriage ceremony?
