When you're planning a wedding, it's easy for it to become very expensive.

From the huge cost of outfits, to hiring a venue and paying for catering, it can become a costly day very quickly.

It's fairly common and reasonable for guests to fork out some cash – either for drinks at the reception or a gift to the happy couple.

It's less common to pay for your meal but a thrifty couple might consider it.

But one American couple has really created waves after a fed-up guest posted their wedding menu online.

Not only have they attached a clear price tag to the quality of the meal – but vegetarians face forking out hundreds in order to eat.

In a wedding shaming Facebook group, a woman posted a picture of the menu, with the caption: "oooooo… OF COURSE I want a souvenir champagne goblet from your wedding with your names on it!!!"

Guests who give a 'loving gift' up to £190 ($250) can choose between roast chicken or swordfish for their meal.

If they splash out £385 ($500), guests are offered a choice of sliced steak or poached salmon.

Meanwhile, the "golden" tier is only available those who gift between £386 and £770 ($501 to $1,000) on the husband and wife.

In return they can choose fillet mignon or lobster tail.

The 'platinum' option, available to those willing to fork out more than £2,000, includes the above choices or a two-pound lobster and a "souvenir champagne goblet".

A small addition under the menu notes that vegetarian options are only available to those in the platinum tier.

Naturally, the controversial menu has not gone down well online.

One person commented: "I love how vegetarians are pretty much blackmailed into paying the platinum level if they want to eat."

Another responded: "That couple deserves all the guests to pledge platinum and show up empty handed."

A third person added: "Some people really do think everyone is as excited about their wedding as they are."

And one couple hit the headlines after defending inviting an elderly guest to the wedding who had tested positive for coronavirus.

Meanwhile, a fuming man dumped his fiancées clothes on the pavement after she cheated on him.
