Guest Shocked To Receive Charge For Additional Slice Of Wedding Cake The Newlyweds Saw Them Take Via CCTV Interview

We are seeing some couples forgo the traditional wedding cake in favor of modern alternatives, like towers of cheese and pie stations, but most weddings in the U.S. still include a wedding cake. After all, it’s one of those long-standing traditions that doesn’t just end that easily.

But it turns out that some newlyweds may turn a little overcontrolling when it comes to who eats their cake and how many slices, exactly, they have. This is what happened to one wedding-goer who recently shared a screenshot of a message they received. The text said “Hey, so we were just looking at the CCTV and saw that you had two pieces of wedding cake.”

The couple announced that each guest had to contribute towards the cake and pay £3.66 per slice! As you can imagine, this unusual approach didn’t go unnoticed and people on the r/weddingshaming subreddit where the story was posted just couldn’t miss a chance to comment on the absurdity of this situation.

One guest at the wedding shared this screenshot on r/weddingshaming showing how they only paid for one slice and forgot to count the second

People were left seriously confused by  this whole situation and this is how  they reacted

I'm guessing they work security in a bakery: "The bride and groom caught me on camera, shoplifting a slice of cake at their wedding."

What the actual. That's absolutely ridiculous. What were the bride and groom thinking when they came up with this idiotic idea (greed of course). Wonder if I can charge people for birthday cake slices, what would be a reasonable price?..... NOTHING, there is no reasonable price. It's just plain rude.

I make jokes with my husband because we have been married once for 28 years and counting. My siblings have been married 3 or 4 times each, which translated into multiple gifts... I think you are onto something here. Time to get married again!!
