Bride Accused Of 'Shaming' Guests By Making Them Take Maths Test During Dinner

When it comes to planning the perfect wedding, it's wise to focus on what will make you happy -  it is your big day afterall.

So should you worry about pleasing all of your guests?

The unnamed woman shared that she and her partner are both mathematicians and so would be incorporating "mathematical tidbits" into their wedding day.

And it's fair to say people who read the post were less than impressed.

It said: "Since both I and [partner's name] are mathematicians, our wedding (which is coming up soon) will be perfused with mathematical tidbits.

"For example, at the dinner, guests will be required to answer a mathematical question in order to find our where they sit. Every guest/couple will be presented with a unique, bespoke question - its difficulty and subject matter drawn directly from what we know their mathematical background to be."

She went on to explain that many of the guests there on the day would have a research-level mathematical background - and some of the questions had even been taken directly from their research papers.

Despite the clear level of effort she'd gone to people thought it was a bad idea to make maths mandatory at a wedding.

One person commented: "Upon looking into my background, they would likely decide to just sit me at the kid's table."

Another wrote: "Math-shaming. My immediate RSVP would be a no."

A third added: "It does sound perfect for THEM but I would decline due to a very likely mathematically-induced anxiety attack."

Not everyone thought it was a problem though.

A different Reddit user posted: "My mom's a mathematician and while she had a Disney wedding, I could see her doing this with absolutely zero malicious intent or creating a situation where someone is embarrassed.

"These two people both LOVE math and want a math-themed wedding, I think you're just assuming the worst because most people are a******* and some people use their intelligence to belittle others. Not everyone is like that."
