WHEN you think of a wedding reception, you probably think of dancing, drinks and general merriment.
So it's understandable that one person was left more than a little disappointed when they attended a reception after their friends' nuptials – only to find that nothing had been provided for the guests.
"I am still trying to get my head round this one," they wrote on Mumsnet's Am I Being Unreasonable? forum.
"It was a friend's wedding last week and the happy couple invited twelve people to their reception.
"After the ceremony (which was lovely) we went back to the couple's house.
"There was no wedding cake. No drinks. We made ourselves cups of tea and coffee."

"It's not as though the couple are short of a bob or two, either."
And it was the fact the guests were made to pay for their own dinner that caused the most controversy among people commenting.
"I'm not even sure that even counts as a wedding reception," one wrote.
"Sounds utterly awful."
"It doesn't sound anything like a wedding reception," another added.
