I would be certainly disappointed!!!
My son-in-law says if he goes to a wedding and there is no white cake with white icing, then he's taking his gift and leaving!
As I tell some of my brides, "You may think this day is all about you but it's not. while you are standing in the church, exchanging your vows, at that moment, it IS about you. But once you leave that church you are now hosting a very large event and you have guests to take care of. So Take. Care. Of them." Most mothers applaud me when I give this speech.
It would be considered very rude and inconsiderate to have a dinner party, invite all vegetarians, and serve prime rib because the hostess says, "It's MY party and that's what *I* like!" I dont' see a wedding as any different. She can have her RKT cake if she wants ... I'm not saying dont' have it. But to totally disregard and ignore the tastes and preferences of her guests is just another story to be posted on etiquettehell.com.
