No matter how gourmet your newly-wedded pals’ catering is, there’s either not enough of it, or there’s something that just… doesn’t taste right.
Or maybe you drank one too many glasses of champagne before you sat down and forgot to eat altogether ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
Can you wear white to a wedding? Post continues after video.
More often than not, you’ll find yourself stumbling into Maccas on the way home, shovelling in a cheeseburger with one hand and dangling your high heels in the other.
But for a wedding guest who posted to Mumsnet recently, it wasn’t just weird-tasting gravy or dry chicken that had her leaving the reception hungry.
It was the fact that the meals were served according to gender, The Mirror reports.
And she was so outraged, she didn’t even stay for cake.
While we all know the pain of an alternate drop wedding menu – trying to grab the steak over the chicken by way of staring down a fed-up waiter – we can’t imagine being stuck with a meal based purely on genitalia, and we would definitely be tackling the nearest male for some steak.
At the wedding in question, men were served a mushroom risotto while female guests had prawns as an entree (which actually sounds pretty decent, but not the point).
Women tucked into grilled chicken and new potatoes for the main course and men were served roast beef (NO!).
And for dessert, the men had a chocolate bomb and women had strawberry shortcake (PLEASE MAKE IT STOP).
According to guests who actually stayed through the meal, towards the end of the night, women were given a piece of wedding cake while the men had a glass of whisky and pls, we’d take the whisky.
Or… both, preferably.
Taking to Mumsnet in a since-deleted post, the outraged wedding guest wrote: “It was perfectly pleasant until we sat down to the wedding breakfast to see the menu was divided by sex.
