At a strictly vegan wedding hosted by the Original Poster (OP)’s passionate sister, tension rises as OP sneaks in sausage rolls for her unpredictable children. As guests, many unfamiliar with veganism, get wind of the non-vegan treat, confrontations ensue, reaching a climax when the bride herself confronts OP amidst an audience of shocked guests.
OP admires her sister immensely for her staunch stand against animal cruelty. The sister is a hardcore vegan, and it’s one of the qualities she finds most commendable about her. OP has two children, Cassy and Chase, who bring their own set of challenges.
The Vegan Wedding
The day has arrived – OP’s sister’s wedding. The ceremony is child-friendly, a relief for OP, who dislikes leaving her children with babysitters. However, there’s one caveat: the wedding is strictly vegan.
Chase’s Culinary Quirk
Chase is going through an unusual phase where he obsessively eats one food item for months, much to OP’s chagrin. Sausage rolls are the current obsession, and refusal leads to sizable tantrums.
Cassy’s Fickle Tastes
Cassy, although young, is not as adamant as her brother. She sometimes mirrors Chase’s choices, but her interests often wane within weeks. Their dynamic presents an unpredictable situation for OP.
The Hidden Supplies
Predicting potential drama from her children, OP packs a large amount of sausage rolls for the wedding. The intention is to keep the kids placated. But, as with all secrets, things don’t stay hidden for long as her sister’s friend, Matt, spots the forbidden snack and approaches.
The Non-Vegan Majority
Without much thought, OP shares a roll with Matt, noticing that among the wedding guests, many aren’t even vegetarian, let alone vegan. While OP’s sister is passionate about her lifestyle, many of her friends don’t share the same conviction.
The Increasing Demand
Not long after Matt’s request, two other guests approach OP. They’ve heard about the secret meaty delicacies. However, this time, OP declines, sensing the impropriety and not wanting to draw attention to herself.
The Bride’s Confrontation
The bride, flushed and furious, confronts OP about distributing sausage rolls at her vegan wedding. She’s livid about the non-vegan food distribution during her vegan wedding. She believes OP’s act is not just a slight against her but a challenge to her values.
A Mother’s Defense
Stung by her sister’s accusations, especially concerning her parenting, OP’s protective instincts kick in. OP is deeply offended by her sister’s critique. The atmosphere is thick with tension as the sister standoff.
The Explosive Argument
Words fly as emotions take over. OP fires back, pointing out that even the bride’s close friends are unimpressed with the vegan dishes. The argument escalates, with both sides saying things they might regret.
The Dramatic Exit
Unable to tolerate her sister’s hostility, OP gathers her children and leaves. The trio makes a hasty exit amidst the chaos of the argument. The wedding ambiance shifts from celebratory to somber.
Silence and Blockades
After the wedding, the rift deepens. OP’s sister blocks her on all social media platforms and also blocks her phone number. Silence reigns supreme as the relationship between the siblings hangs in the balance.
Pressure from the Clan
Family and friends weigh in on the dramatic exit. They urge OP to apologize, labeling her the culprit in the wedding fiasco. However, OP stands her ground, waiting for her sister’s acknowledgment.
Was The Sister’s Behavior Appropriate?
OP posts her story online for feedback from the internet community. The readers in the forum had a lot of mixed views on the matter.
One reader said, “You could have fed your kids prior, in the car, before the wedding or whatever. Surely, there was some other snack you could have brought. She was out of line in making a big deal about it, but you knew what you were doing.”
Another Commenter Thinks
Another responder wrote, “Her wedding is not about you or your kids; if your kids can’t go without a specific food item for one day, then you should have respectfully declined the invite. Instead, you smuggle food into a vegan wedding and insult the bride on her wedding day.”
A Third View on The Story
A different person stated, “Feed kids before and tell them that the food that wedding is all there is and you can’t bring outside food into the place. You’ll have something in the car and bring them to it once or twice.”
A Final Perspective on the Matter
Another reader commented, “Why didn’t you just feed your kids before the wedding? Or why couldn’t you have stepped outside for a little while they ate their sausages? There were plenty of alternatives to breaking out your stash of meat right there in the middle of your sister’s vegan wedding.”
