A newlywed couple announced their plans to make their wedding guests work hard to figure out where they will be sitting at the event.
A screenshot of their Facebook announcement was posted to Reddit after they revealed guests would have to solve a math question before they could sit down to their meal.
The couple explained that because they were mathematicians they planned to include multiple math references throughout the event.
“At the dinner, guests will be required to answer a mathematical question in order to find out where they sit,” the post read.
“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.”
According to the couple, many of the guests have a “research-level” background in math and their questions would be drawn from their personal research papers.
“It’s been a rather consuming but very entertaining process to look at all kinds of papers that I wouldn’t normally ever look at.”
However, many on social media didn’t think a math quiz was a great idea at a wedding, with some calling the couple out for “math-shaming”.
The person who posted the screenshot to Reddit said their “immediate RSVP would be no.”
“That’s one way to subtract a lot of guests from your wedding,” one person commented.
Others called the idea “cringy” and a “great way to make sure each of your guests feel either inadequate or insulted.” But not everyone thought it was a bad idea.
“While it’s true that this could end up a disaster, on the surface it’s kinda cute and adorable. Suggests a small intimate party and they’ve paid attention to each guest,” one person wrote.
“Doesn’t really scream entitlement or aggressive.”
Others said it sounded “fun” and claimed they would personally enjoy working out the puzzle.
