A bride-to-be is refusing to cater for her vegan wedding guests - saying they can bring or order their own food at their own cost.

The anonymous woman shared her opinion in a closed wedding shaming group on Facebook, according to Metro UK.

In her post, she complained that the guests had written their dietary requirements on the RSVP, branding their request a 'special food accommodation'.

No vegan food

"Nowhere on the RSVP does it ask what guests want to eat at the reception. Nowhere," she wrote.

"We are not making special food accommodations. If our parents needed something, sure. Them? No. They can bring their own food or order from the restaurant property (but it's BBQ lol) at their own cost."

She added that the food on offer was tacos and that she wouldn't be expanding the options to offer vegan plates, saying: "What are they going to eat? The lettuce and beans?"

Mixed response

The post garnered hundreds of replies - including many who disagreed with her. "I seem to be the odd one out here for making sure my vegan and veggie friends will have something to eat," said one respondent.

"They're important enough for me that I'm inviting them to my wedding, I want to make sure they have a good time, which means allowing them to have something they can eat."

Others were less accommodating, with one writing: "I'd just uninvite the vegans. Problem solved. They can eat before or after. Not their wedding."
