My friends and family are upset with me because I am charging to eat dinner at my upcoming wedding. My fiance and I made the decision to charge people for their food because we've been to tons of weddings and seen how people waste it. Things are tight because of inflation so why should we pay for a plate that won't be eaten? My friends and family say my fiance and I are cheap for charging.
