Wedding invitations are exciting on many levels – the opportunity to finally wear some fancy clothes, catch up with family and friends, and jazz up your social media pages with some colorful photos. But not only that, isn’t it? The prospect of indulging in a mouth-watering feast has to be the most exciting part of any wedding ceremony! After all, who wouldn’t want to fill their face with delicious treats without worrying about the bill? But for a guest at a recent wedding, a little extra food cost £3.66 (about Rs 367).

A Reddit user shared a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation with the couple about paying for an extra piece of cake they attended. How did he come to know about this guest’s indulgence, you ask?
Well, the couple identified the gourmet guests through CCTV footage of the party and made them pay for it. In the sub-reddit ‘Weddingshaming’, the user original poster (OP) wrote: “I paid for the first slice after it was announced the day we would help pay for their cake!! Apparently the second Didn’t count for.”
Here is a screenshot of the conversation:
The unusually bizarre text message has delighted Reddit users. One user wrote- “Tell them to take you to the small claims court.”
A second user said that “sending an actual video feed is another level of madness”.
Another user left a cheeky comment saying, “I will treat my gift as payment and in that case, you will pay the difference on me… so please send your payment (whatever amount) immediately. “
Another user also shared similar views. “I paid X for your gift, X for gas to go there and back, X for clothes to wear to your wedding, and the opportunity to work an extra shift to attend. Cake’s Deducting the cost of the piece, you owe me XXX. Please send immediately to avoid late fees,” wrote the user.
The newlyweds may be able to recover the cake money, but they certainly won’t have the blessings of Reddit users!
