We all know that weddings can cost a pretty penny, so it makes sense why some couples look for places to cut costs on their special day.
The bride-to-be, who is expecting 200 people to rock up to her attend, took to Facebook to explain she couldn't afford to feed 50 of those hungry guests.
She began: "Bride here. Seems the most expensive thing is catering. To save a little bit of money, we are inviting 250 people, expecting about 200 (to RSVP), and telling the caterers to prepare for 150."
And the solution?
A tray of fried chicken tenderloins from US fast food chain Raising Cane’s.
The American woman went on: "I suggested maybe getting a tray of chicken to supplement the missing food.
"Is this a terrible idea? Would I get the caterers to serve that chicken also, or just put to the side and let the people serve the chicken themselves?"
People clearly didn't hold back with their reactions to the bride's question, with one Facebook user hitting out: "If you can’t afford to feed 250 people, move your wedding date to save up enough for your guest list or invite fewer people — the most reasonable option.
"Do not bring in fast food. The caterer will not, cannot, and should not serve your fast food.
"The other option is just have fast food for your reception. Embrace the trash."
A second social media user chimed in: "Sucks for the guests, but also real sh***y for the caterer who will get blamed when there’s not enough food for everyone."
"If I come as an invited guest to your wedding and there’s not a plate for me, I am taking my gift back and self-serving myself all the chicken I can carry," quipped a third while a fourth Facebook revealed: "I’ve been at a wedding with a buffet that ran out of food.
"That was years ago and I remember it well! The venue said the wedding party ordered a small amount of food, but the venue let them do this.
"Fast food would have been better than a plate of random vegetables!"
The news comes after another bride was labelled 'cheap and tacky' after charging guests around £50 to attend her wedding.
