Complaints about the food at a wedding are common - whether it's the quality or quantity.

But you tend to keep the issues quiet, as you don't want to ruin the bride and groom's big day.

However, one woman walked out of her friend's wedding over their "outrageous" decision to serve meals according to gender.

She said the wedding was "perfectly pleasant" until it got to the wedding breakfast, where all hell broke loose.

The bride and groom had two menus - one for women, and one for men, which understandably wasn't welcomed by everyone.

Writing about the issue on Mumsnet, the guest said that women enjoyed a prawn risotto starter, while men were served a mushroom risotto.

For the main course, men indulged in roast beef, while women had grilled chicken and new potatoes.

Women tucked into grilled chicken and new potatoes for the main course and men were served roast beef.

And for dessert, the men had a chocolate bomb and women were offered strawberry shortcake.

Posting on Mumsnet, the woman wrote: "It was perfectly pleasant until we sat down to the wedding breakfast to see the menu was divided by sex.

"Everybody at the table was outraged but no one said anything. I took one bit of my prawn risotto before deciding to leave.

"Apparently the groom’s parents are very traditional and this was their idea but for goodness sake, the groom (and this is probably outing me but sod it) works in a very progressive part of women’s health and the bride is a feminist who attends rallies and feminist events with me.

"You would think they would have cut out that bulls**t as soon as it was suggested."

According to guests who actually stayed the entire evening, women were given a piece of wedding cake later on, while the men had a glass of whisky.

While the majority agreed that the split was a ridiculous and offensive idea, they thought she shouldn't have walked out.

One wrote: "I think YWBU [you were being unreasonable]. Yes it was incredibly sexist and outdated, but at a wedding that you are a guest at I think you should have kept your thoughts to yourself. How must it have made the bride and groom feel to see (or find out later - which they will) that you walked out? Not a great wedding memory for them. It was rude of you."

Another replied: "A bit of an overreaction if I might say. What happened to couples doing what they want at their own wedding?"

A third agreed she handled it badly, writing: "That is utterly bonkers. We'd have had a bloody good laugh about it though and switched our food if we wanted to. I'd not have left."

One person (potentially the bride) was left fuming, as she blasted: "I think you were being unreasonable.

“Yes it was incredibly sexist and outdated, but at a wedding that you are a guest at I think you should have kept your thoughts to yourself.

“How must it have made the bride and groom feel to see that you walked out?

“Not a great wedding memory for them. It was rude of you."

But others agreed she was right to leave.

"You are not being unreasonable. It's difficult to believe that the B&G thought this level of sexism was acceptable, even if their parents did. Utterly bizarre" wrote one woman.

Another joked: "Apart from the oddness of doing this at all, I fail to see why prawn risotto and strawberry cheesecake are feminine.

“Was the roast beef served rare?”
