Newlyweds beg strangers at 'aesthetic' restaurant to move tables for photoshoot.


There's something about getting married that can turn otherwise normal people into entitled, fire-breathing demons of greed, but what do you do when a bride and groomzilla try to use your lunch table as an Intagram-worthy moment?

Influencers in the wild are everywhere, and it's hard to avoid becoming a jaded cynic who thinks the main reason anyone gets married is for the social media likes. Oh it's another friend's sister's cousin's birthday? Time to post a photo of them at my wedding 4 years ago because I looked perfect that day.

So, when a conflicted restaurant guest decided to consult the gloriously petty and judgmental moral compass of the internet otherwise known as Reddit's infamous 'Am I the As*hole' about a failed wedding photoshoot, people were quick to help deem a verdict.

AITA (Am I the As*hole) for not moving out of my table at a restaurant so a couple could have their wedding shoot?

I was having dinner with my best friend in a very popular restaurant in our city. It's one of those pink/full of flowers restaurants...those aesthetic ones.

While we were sitting there dining and minding our business, a couple dressed as bride and groom comes in. They were having their day after photoshoot around downtown apparently and also stopped at the restaurant to take pics because of the aesthetic.

Now I didn't particularly mind their presence. They did their thing. When I started getting annoyed though was when the photographer asked us to move seats for around 15 minutes so he could photograph the couple at the booth we were sitting because it's one of the most famous parts of the restaurant.

We kindly declined as we were already dining, having a table full of meals. Plus the restaurant was packed so only a couple of really small tables were empty for us to sit.

The photographer kept insisting that we should pause for a while and do this favor to the newlyweds. We kept declining.

Then the couple stepped in and both of us started begging us and how special it is that they take pictures there. My friend and I said we understand it might be special but this is a restaurant, they don't own the restaurant and can't just have people move seats just like that.

The groom ended up yelling and asking for the manager to step in and move us. The manager declined since we was not getting any share for having the restaurant used as a photoshoot place and also defended us by saying that he won't move paying customers so that the couple can occupy the place for free.

The bride was tearing up and said how we are heartless for ruining this for her and making her upset one day after her wedding. They eventually left.

My friend and I felt no shame for what we did but when we told our other friends they said we lack compassion and it was just a nice gesture we should have done to make someone happy. AITA?

Of course, the jury of internet strangers was eager to weigh in on this photoshoot drama. Here's what people had to say...

NTA (Not the As*hole). Interrupt an expensive meal for 15 minutes? Did they offer to buy your meal? Talk about entitled! They should have made a reservation and paid the manager/ restaurant a fee.

NTA they could easily have booked the table or made arrangements with the restaurant if it was that important to them.

NTA - and you absolutely did the right thing standing your ground and not moving. The manager did the right thing also. If the bride and groom wanted photos in the restaurant that badly they should have made plans to do so. Arranged with management prior to just rocking up and expecting everyone to accommodate them.

NTA. It is not your fault they didn't bother making a reservation for at least a cup of tea in the booth. Just because they are newly weds doesn't mean the world owes them anything.

So, there you have it!

Everyone agreed unanimously here that these friends weren't wrong to refuse to interrupt their meal for this entitled couple. If this particular photo backdrop was so important to them, the could've simply waited until the table was empty or available. Good luck, everyone!
