She posted about the dinner on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum. The bride served lemon chicken and lemon cake at her wedding. The trouble was that her mother-in-law is repulsed by lemon. She wanted to provide a low-cost alternative so she bought her mom a cheesesteak from Jersey Mike’s, a fast-food joint. But after the wedding, her father-in-law (FIL) was furious.
“We got married recently and I wanted to serve my favorite foods at the wedding, lemon chicken and lemon cake. But I didn’t want my MIL to starve and she HATES lemon, can’t even put it in her mouth without gagging. I was trying to think of something she would eat that was cheap and easy. I know the buffalo chicken cheesesteak at Jersey Mike’s is her fave fast food meal and I had a box of M&M’s for her. She did give me a weird look, but she ate it,” the bride wrote.
Then her father-in-law called her out on the meal.
“FIL was furious. He said that I am selfish and disrespected him and his wife. He went on a rant about how tacky it was to have a wedding and not take the family into consideration and that I wasted his money. MIL did tell him to stop yelling, but he called me a b**** on my wedding day. Now FIL is demanding an apology,” the Reddit poster said.
Reddit users shared what they thought about the situation and they were not on the bride’s side.
“It was extremely rude and tacky to serve a nice meal and dessert for every guest except one,” someone said.
“Singling MIL out with a sandwich? Omg,” another wrote.
“A conversation about food being served and food she would like to eat, would have gone a ways towards avoiding this awkward and tacky situation,” a user commented.
