A bride has been left shocked and appalled after she found out a guest filled up 10 Tupperware containers with food from her wedding.
Posting in a wedding shaming group on Facebook, the woman explained that she had a very small wedding ceremony and reception where only 25 people were invited.
The food was served in a buffet style which she said is traditional for a Polish reception. The bride said;
She loaded up seven Tupperware containers with food to take home, took about three containers of homemade cookies, a couple of bottles of beer and most of the centrepieces.
The woman in question was a plus one that had been invited by the father of the bride’s friend.
The bride didn’t notice this happening at the time as she was busy celebrating the special occasion but her dad told her about it the next day. She said;
And when we opened up our “gift” from her she gave us $5. Not even kidding. A five dollar bill.
Before anyone asks, she’s not poor by any stretch of the imagination. She’s probably better off than I am, and I’m assuming it’s just because she just freeloads from anyone and everyone she can.
At the time of writing the post had garnered 1,100 likes and over 500 comments from people who were shocked by what they read and debated over how it should have been handled. One group member said;
Your dad should have said no firmly and never told you about it.
Many others said that someone who wasn’t the bride should have stopped her.
The bride explained that if he expected the woman to do this he would have but they were all in shock that someone had the audacity to do it in the first place. Another person said;
You should send her a bill for the centrepieces and food she took. If she doesn’t pay you, small claims. Also, shame her publicly.
‘Who the hell takes Tupperware to a wedding?,’ a different group member asked.
Commenters agreed with the fact that what the guest did was ‘tacky’, ‘rude’ and ‘gross’.
Many members shared their own experiences that were similar to this, with one person saying that someone at her family’s Easter celebration did this with the cakes.
She said that they had three cakes and some guests didn’t even get a slice before the family members slid the cakes off the tray and took it out to their car and packed it up.
Another explained that at her parent’s wedding all the women on her dad’s side came to the reception loaded with Tupperware containers. She said;
[They] were very aggressive with the catering staff about taking every scrap of leftover food and cake. My parents didn’t even get to take home their wedding cake.
One woman revealed that her grandmother’s cousin is exactly like the woman from the wedding.
‘She once left a wedding reception with the top tier of a wedding cake. Not even joking,’ she said.
