Wedding preparations can put people under a lot of stress.
There is a reason that Reddit is filled to the brim with stories about Bridezillas and people who go fanatic when it comes to preparing for a wedding. Now, I understand that preparing for a big function can put anyone under a lot of stress but that does not excuse the weird behavior in most of these stories. However, today we have a different story where the groom and his family are freaking out over vegan options.
I am well aware that a lot of people can turn completely hostile when it comes to vegans and their food but I think that is overdramatic behavior. I have nothing against meat eaters or vegans and anything in between and anyone else shouldn’t either. I have also seen vegans getting angry at people who at meat but that is not what the story is about today. It is about vegan options at a wedding and how the girl and her family are vegans.
I have seen lots of couples where one is a meat eater and the other is vegan and usually, everything is fine as long as they respect each other but that is not what is happening especially when it comes to the guy’s side. You will soon see what I am talking about once you scroll below.
I can already tell from the title that this is going to be a wild ride.
Lots of relationships work fine even if the couple has a lot of different eating habits.
But things weren’t going well when it came to wedding preparations.
They didn’t want vegan options at the wedding at all which is absurd in my mind.
I personally think every function should have vegan options and I don’t count salads into that either.
Rather than letting it go, he even went behind her back just so the wedding didn’t have vegan food.
I don’t understand their thinking either and why they are doing this.
So she went ahead and decided to ask Reddit what they thought about this.
We also got a quick update as to how his Mom responded to this whole thing.
And called the woman out for being dismissive.
The mother-in-law also said that she wasn’t involved but she supported her sons decision.
She also didn’t like that the girl had mentioned that she was the one paying for the food.
She kept piling on and didn’t once admit her mistake.
It is clear that the mother-in-law thinks that she is in the right.
It is wholly ridiculous and I don’t know how anyone is taking their side.
Honestly, all of this is just crazy. I would understand the family’s reaction if she was changing everything into vegan options but that is not what is happening. Are they really so ignorant that they think vegans only eat salads and other appetizers? I am not surprised since she mentioned cupcakes which have a lot of dairy products in them, something everyone knows that vegans don’t eat. Now, I know there are vegan cupcakes but I don’t think women as referring to the specially made ones. I don’t usually say this but I don’t see this relationship working out in the long term.
Unsurprisingly, people in the comments advised her not to go ahead with the marriage.
And I have to say that I agree with this assessment.
What are your thoughts on this scenario? Do you think the groom’s side has some valid concerns that this person isn’t telling us or do you think it is just about controlling everything? What are your thoughts on what the text message sent by the guy’s mother said?
