Just wanted to rant really. It is now six days to go and a close near enough family member has said they don’t like the starter and the dessert. They have had weeks as they were lucky enough to be told the menu (due to them asking) and now everything is paid for and too late.
I know that finding a set menu which everyone likes is impossible but I have done my best with dietary requirements and food phobias, I want everyone to be happy!
Darn it, I wish I knew before now when I could do something about it! Now I will worry that the family member isn’t going to be enjoying the day and they are pregnant too 🙁

Do not even worry about it in the slightest! They are lucky you even told them the menu! It is not your job to please everyone. If they do not like the food then they should eat something beforehand. That was an extremely rude remark to make, especially since it obviously can’t be changed so close to the wedding. Focus on YOU enjoying the wedding and seriously don’t worry about that person. It is one meal and they can deal!

Has anyone else had people complain about the food? Purely because they don’t like it (not that it was bad quality). I found it to be one of the hardest choices, I love the menu I’ve picked!

Thanks, I thought it was rude too. I think if I was to try and change it now it would cause more hassle. It isn’t a hotel so they will have ordered the food in and there’s seating plans with everyone who isn’t having the exact set menu marked on it etc.
Very annoying, I wonder what will be next!

A wedding breakfast would be ALOT harder than a dinner imo.
Lots of people are picky about what they eat for dinner, it would as you said, be impossible to please everyone.
Is it plated?
If I were to do this, I’d do a buffet with all kinds of breakfast items. Hopefully your guests don’t complain TO YOU. That would be horrible, even if they don’t like it.

I would try not to worry about it. It’s not as if you can change it now. Plus, it was really rude of the family member to say they didn’t like your menu – if you fit everyone’s allergies you’re doing a great job!

@jenilynevette: The Wedding Breakfast isn’t breakfast – it’s just the name of the meal 🙂
OP, don’t worry about it. One person is nothing – and it’s not like it’s a diertary thing – her fault for being picky!
You should have what YOU enjoy on your day 🙂
And if you tell her you can no longer change because it’s too late, then you can pretend you would have changed it if you could!
