Family abandon daughter’s wedding due to Vegan menu

Family abandon daughter’s wedding due to Vegan menu

The altercation was revealed on Mumsnet by Kathycraig79 with the user asking fellow mums if her wedding food opinion was unreasonable. Being evidently annoyed with her daughter, Kathy asked the community if her and her family were unreasonable for boycotting her daughter’s all-Vegan wedding.

‘She is adamant that the wedding must be vegan,’ Kathy explained. ‘This is fine with me, I support her wish and this is for her to decide.

‘We sent the invitations and I thought it would be a good idea to include the information about vegan catering on the invitations.

While thinking that everyone would appreciate their menu decisions some of those invited were rather put off by the idea of a no-meat, dairy-free wedding reception.

‘We have had many RSVPs basically saying they will not be coming if the food is vegan. I have to say this was unexpected, many of the family are quite traditional, meat-and-two-veg, but I did not expect this to be such a problem.’

‘I’m really getting frustrated,’ she admitted. ‘Yesterday my daughter said she was thinking of cancelling the whole thing and thinks the guests are being unreasonable. Maybe I should not have put this information on the invitations?’

Despite the passion behind the posts Mumsnet users stood by the bride.

‘Your guests are being unreasonable’ replied one user.

‘They know what veganism is right?’ They continued.
