A man who is set to marry his childhood sweetheart has revealed how he uninvited his mother to their wedding after she canceled their vegetarian wedding catering services and hired a non-veggie company instead.
The groom-to-be explained that he and his girlfriend have been vegetarian for many years so they planned for a vegetarian wedding reception.
But his mother was not happy and said all vegetarian food were ‘bland.’
“My mother, of course, has a problem with this, as her hobby is to criticize me,” he wrote on Reddit.
“She thinks that vegetarian food is bland and we will regret it when our guests go home hungry. She has also been dying to be more involved in the wedding even tho she hasn’t been this involved in my life since I was 4 or 5.”
He then found out that his mother canceled their catering service and hired a non-vegetarian one.
“After two exhausting calls with catering services (we got ours back), I sent her a message that she just got herself uninvited to the wedding.”
His furious mother then called and he said she sounded like crying, “but I hung up after a minute.”
“Nina thinks this is reasonable, and that we were generous to even invite her in the first place. But our relatives called either angry or disappointed that I would do this to my mother,” he added.
The man then asked the internet if he was in the wrong for uninviting his own mother to the wedding.
Reddit users were quick to share their thoughts on the matter, with one person commenting: “Unless you want your whole married life manipulated and controlled, it is best to stamp it out right now. It is not as though vegetarian weddings are all that uncommon.”
Another wrote: “our mother was so far out of line, it’s not funny. It’s ludicrous that some people are unwilling to try something new, and just eat their vegetables for just one meal. Stick to what you know is right for you.”
