The internet is losing its mind over a couple who said they had Minnie, Mickey at the wedding instead of eating


Reddit users left on a person who claimed in the AmIAnAsshole Forum (AITA) that she and her husband skipped the restoration of their wedding so they could afford a Mickey and Minnie Mouse appearance.

“My fiancé and I just got married two months ago and we had the wedding of our dreams,” read the post from Reddit user throwaway_family9525.

“However,” wrote the user, a self-proclaimed “huge Disney fan,” “about a month and a half ago my aunt started posting on Facebook how disappointed she was with the whole ordeal, and a few guests sided with her.”

“The cost to have Minnie and Mickey for a good portion of the time (30 minutes) was almost exactly what our parents allocated to our catering budget, so we scheduled an appearance at our first dance and our wedding photos, foregoing the food being served (although there were A LOT of facilities on site where people could eat….),” she wrote.

The post has since been deleted by moderators, who say in the thread they “remove posts from feeds for a variety of reasons, including community safety, civility, and fidelity to their purpose.” They cite Reddit’s Rule 8, which states that “Posts should be truthful and reflect recent disputes you’ve had that require arbitration. This means no shitposts, parodies, or satires. “.

Some online speculated that the post seemed fake.

An attempt to reach the Reddit user went unanswered. A Reddit spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Disney Weddings did not immediately respond to messages through their social media accounts or online portal.

In the two days since the post first appeared, it circulated on social media, with many screenshots questioning why the couple would opt for Disney entertainment over food.

“Minnie” started trending on twitter Monday afternoon.

In recent years, the AITA Forum “has become the go-to place to find out if you’re wrong, to tell someone else they’re wrong, or better yet, to sit back and watch the sparks fly”, according to Fast Companywho reported in 2020 that the pandemic “has only made IATA a more essential destination, full of surrogate assholes to substitute for heartless politicians and corporate lords”.

On Reddit, the bride said it cost around $2,750 per 30-minute session with Mickey and Minnie. They hired the two Disney characters over two days. She clarified in later comments that the cast “joined my husband and I and our photographer for a private lunch.”

Many of the roughly 2,400 comments in the thread responding to the bride sided with the guests.

“I love Disney but damn you rude,” wrote one Reddit user.

“Don’t throw a party if you can’t take care of your guests,” another Reddit user wrote.

“If meeting two random people dressed in Disney costumes was so important to you, why did you have a wedding with guests?” another Reddit user wrote. “You should have got together with these two actors, taken photos and videos and shared them with your friends and family.”

On Twitter, Internet users were just as shocked by the choice of the couple.

“It’s the social contract, folks: you can have any kind of wedding you want, but your guests can talk about it all they want,” one said. user wrote. “You give them Mickey and Minnie instead of food, and you’re shocked that they have opinions?”

“Imagine sitting at a table with no food watching two weirdos in costumes pose for pictures with Mickey and Minnie Mouse,” one Twitter user wrote.

“If you hire Mickey and Minnie Mouse for your wedding, you are legally obligated to have them represented in the divorce,” another user joked.
