A Reddit user sparked an intense discussion
over his choice to uninvite his fiancé’s
relative from their wedding after a
disagreement over vegan food options.
The user, who writes under the
account veganthrowawa, shared his conflict
to Reddit’s AITA (Am I The A******) forum.
Veganthrowawa said that since he has been
vegan for 9 years and Andrew is vegetarian, they
decided to make their wedding 100 percent vegan.
The problem? Andrew’s family
is “meat-eatin’ country folk”.
“So many people called us, SO OFFENDED we
would make our wedding vegan … We were polite in
informing them we would not be serving meat”.
Though most guests complied, a relative
Veganthrowawa refers to as “Sweet Gale”
demanded the two grooms change the menu.
“She quickly told me while he was gone that she
would ‘put up with a pansy wedding, but there’s no
way in hell [she’d] let her kids eat like pansies”.
“I was fed up and told her ‘Then
don’t f****** come’ and hung up”.
After the argument, he said at least 20 people
said they would not come to the wedding until
he apologized for being “rude” to Sweet Gale.
“My fiancé wants me to apologize as he wants a
big wedding … I told him I’m not apologizing until she
fesses up about what she really said to me”.
Commenters were divided
over how Veganthrowawa
should handle the situation.
It’s YOUR wedding … guest[s] refusing to
have a meat-free meal for ONE day is obnoxious”.
Others said he need to budge at least a little bit. “Is
it that hard to respect your guests’s choice of food”
