Children accidentally added to the menu of wedding dinner

The moment when are “kid’s menu” becomes “children on the menu” rather than “a menu for children”.

A fancy wedding accidentally made that less-than-fancy mistake on RSVP invitations they sent out. In a photo uploaded to Reddit’s r/funny, the RSVP card asks you, sir or madam, for your name, whether you’ll be attending, and whether you’d like to eat beef, pork or young children (12 and under) for the entrée.

Just check off your favorite dish, and let them know about any dietary restrictions. They’re free range, completely organic and just a bit whiny.

Todd Bachman was ready to walk his daughter down the aisle. He also knew he couldn’t do it alone.

Bachman stopped daughter Brittany Peck’s wedding processional Saturday to request the presence of another crucial figure in Brittany’s life — her stepdad.
