Instead of descending into a rage spiral, Antoinette did what she really wanted to do, which was go to McDonald’s.
“At first I thought he was joking but then I just said, ‘go and have fun.’ To be honest, I was relieved because I was starving and didn’t want some poncy wedding day anyway,” she said.
She brought her friends and her four children to the McDonald’s across the street and enjoyed a hamburger, fries, and mozzarella sticks as people congratulated her on her big day.
After their separate activities, Miles and Antoinette hosted a party for their friends that night.
“People spend way too much on weddings and there was no way I wanted to spend an obscene amount on something like this,” Antoinette told the paper.
“We just wanted to do it in our own way and for ourselves. We are not traditionalists.”
