Her bridesmaid says that the decision to not the provide a meal has left friends and family shocked…

Catering can be one of the most expensive parts of a wedding, but one bride has gone against the trend and decided not to provide any food at her reception. Taking to Facebook, one of bridesmaids says that the absence of any food on the day will cause uproar with guests and believes there are other ways the couple could cut costs…

A Big Deal

In her post, the bridesmaid said that the bride had always wanted a relaxed wedding with minimal fuss. “They are really focused on their wedding being a nice relaxed time on some large outdoor property,” she wrote. “I love the simplicity and it’s totally them (but) I just found out that to cut costs, they’re not providing food. Like. What!?” The post went on to say that guests would have to order food to the wedding venue as it was a whole day affair. “It’s a whole day thing, even into the night, and no food!? Everyone else I can see just getting hammered with no food and it’s going to be messy,” she said.

Making Sacrifices

Commenters on the bridesmaid’s post were quick to assure her that she wasn’t overreacting to consider saying something to the couple. “If you can’t afford to feed all your guests, you either need to invite less people or have a smaller, shorter wedding,” one Facebook user wrote.

With weddings becoming more and more expensive, most couples have to make sacrifices in order to pay for the big day, but when it comes to feeding your guests, cutting food all together is never going to be a popular option. Perhaps this couple should consider finding a more affordable venue – if they don’t, there might not be any guests to worry about!

Do you think this couple are wrong to serve no food to their wedding guests? Let us know in the comments.

  • I can understand wanting to cut corners and save money any way you can with a wedding……but no food!!! Why not get guests to bring a plate, that usually ends up with lots left over. But no food…..come on


  • I think its ok to not include a meal at your wedding reception, but if you choose to have a whole day wedding then you do need to feed people. They need to cut the length of their day.


  • I have a solution for them only invite your families and don’t invite any guests


  • I think it’s ok to go against a trend. When this couple wants to make this decision then they’re free to do so, nothing wrong with that.
