Some guests invited to a wedding have threatened to boycott the ceremony because of the rule laid down by the bride-to-be.
Despite refusing to screen England’s World Cup quarter-final match against Sweden at her wedding, the British woman banned guests from checking their phones during the game. She said she woukd put a sign at the venue stressing that “it’s a football free zone”.
She reportedly posted on Facebook that she had received multiple requests from guests wanting to know if the match will be shown at the wedding. She expressed anger at the messages and stated that under no circumstances will the match be shown.
It is her wedding, right? So, what would you do if your wedding ceremony clashed with a quarter-final match between Nigeria and Brazil?
Would you rather screen the match or declare the venue a football free zone?

‘arghhhhhhh‘ said she would gladly show the match. She said: “The atmosphere would be amazing. I’d be jumping around with everyone else in my dress.
“Also a great way to break up the day. The day goes so fast for the bride and groom but the day guests….it can be such a long and tiring day. What a great way to break up the day!
“The whole country is routing for them. Even people who don’t like football are into it. I just don’t think it’s fair to expect people not to watch it, or not even check their phones!”
FootballsComingHome: “I would show it, everyone’s going to be checking phones otherwise, my dad was at a wedding in 66 and they showed the match at the reception until it went to extra time, then the bride put a stop to it so they all went to the pub instead.”
ReservoirDogs: “What kind of numpty gets married when the World Cup is on without checking when fixtures are (the fixtures have been out for ages even if you don’t know which slot England would fit in to)? Even if you are not a fan yourself you know that the majority of people are and will want to see it.”
Shoxfordian: “I understand why she wouldn’t want the football on during the wedding. Not everyone cares about the World Cup.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOUR WEDDING CLASHED WITH A WORLD CUP QUARTER-FINAL MATCH BETWEEN NIGERIA AND BRAZIL?
SCREEN THE MATCH OR DECLARE FOOTBALL FREE ZONE?
