Bride would rather put MOH's life at risk than have a seafood-free wedding.


What do you do when you've always envisioned your wedding menu featuring lobster rolls or oysters, but your best friend happens to be deathly allergic to anything from the ocean?

So, when a completely out-of-touch and selfishly 'shellfish'-obsessed bride (sorry) decided to vent to a Facebook group about her catering issue, her post ended up on the gloriously petty and judgmental 'Wedding Shaming' subreddit. Be careful out there, Bridezillas, if you dare to complain about your Maid of Honor's completely uncontrollable food allergy, you're going to get roasted by strangers.

Plain text version:

I have a huge dilemma, and am seeking advice! My family and I are huge seafood lovers. However, my best friend/Maid of Honor is allergic to seafood. She's allergic enough where she cannot be around seafood without breaking out in hives.

I'm bummed out that I can't have seafood at my wedding or the events leading up to it. I'm not sure how I should approach this situation. I don't want to see insensitive, but I'm also getting pushback from my family who feels it's unfair to not have any seafood because of one party.

I haven't talk to my Maid of Honor about it yet because it seems like she's assuming I won't have seafood at my wedding. How do I approach this issue so everyone is comfortable? Am I wrong for wanting to have seafood? I know my friend's health is important, but I also only get one wedding and I feel like I'm missing out.

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

Maybe she’s the beneficiary to her friends life insurance and she wants a big wedding...

When you’d trade your friend for a piece of crab

As a person with severe allergy I get that people can get frustrated around me. I'd probably get it if my friend don't invite me in one of the wedding events but maybe it's just me and my cultural differences. Why does it sound like she did not talk about it at all with the friend? Like, maybe just casually mentioning it? It's your MOH after all.

Seriously? Can’t the rest of you go out for seafood the next day after the wedding and let her go home.

My friends health is important but not as important as my wedding, damn it!!

So, there you have it!

Everyone agreed unanimously here that this bride needs a serious reality slap. If she wants to put her friend's life at risk to serve seafood at her wedding, then she probably should have a lobster or an Alaskan King Crab be her Maid of Honor instead. Good luck, everyone!
