Children positively don’t eat free at this wedding ceremony.
An nameless wedding ceremony visitor has shared an incident on Reddit’s Marriage ceremony Shaming discussion board, looking for recommendation on how to answer the bride’s mother and father, who’re allegedly demanding the visitor reimburse them for a meal their 16-year-old son ate on the reception.
BRIDE ALLEGEDLY ASKS CANCER-STRICKEN BRIDESMAID TO PAY EXTRA AND WEAR A WIG
In line with the Reddit put up, the visitor had beforehand acquired the marriage invitation and selected the common, “adult” hen from the meal choices, as did the son.
“There was an option to select a kid’s meal version of each dish, but I never considered ordering one for my son because he is too old for kid’s meals. I sent in the RSVP card with our meal selections and never heard anything about it,” the put up learn.
As soon as on the reception, the put up defined, the waiter introduced the pair their meals, however ended up being one meal quick — a hen meal — for the desk.

“The waiter had a small plate of chicken fingers and fries, but everyone at the table told him it must be a mistake because we didn’t have any kids sitting with us. The waiters were able to put together an extra chicken plate for the person who didn’t get one, and it seemed all was well,” the nameless poster wrote.
Nonetheless, it was not all effectively, because the visitor quickly bought a cellphone name from the bride’s mother and father, who allegedly claimed the hen fingers had been for the 16-year-old, and that the visitor has “caused the caterer to charge [the family] for an extra adult chicken meal.”
“I told them my son had asked for the adult meal, but they said he should have had the kid’s meal because he’s under 18. They said I should have known he was meant to have a kid’s meal and that I should have asked for clarification if I wasn’t sure. But I wasn’t unsure, I never thought for a second that my son would have a kid’s meal,” the put up reads, calling the transfer “rude to feed a 16-year-old a meal meant for a six-year-old.”

The poster then seeks recommendation from the net discussion board, asking if it was unsuitable to refuse to pay for the additional meal, claiming, “It was their mistake for changing my son’s order.”
These on the discussion board practically unanimously defended the visitor, calling the mother and father’ actions “tacky” as a result of the invitation didn’t designate that child’s meals had been for anybody beneath 18.
“Oh for cryin’ out loud. The fact that someone planning the reception even thought a teenage boy should get a child’s meal is ludicrous and stupid. The fact that the bride’s parents now want you to pay for it is grossly tacky,” a part of a remark learn.
“Expected to eat a kids meal = rude … Calling later to ask for $ because you choose to change a guest’s meal and you have to pay for it… unbelievable,” one remark learn.

“The audacity of people… I do wonder if the bride and groom knew about the cheap parents calling,” one other shared.
“I’ve by no means even seen ‘guidelines’ about who can order a child’s meal,” another wrote. “At one wedding ceremony, my then-25-year-old sister ordered the children meal as a result of she did not like both of the grownup decisions. The bride mentioned she simply chuckled when the RSVP card got here again. And my sister bought her hen strips and fries.”
