Woman Cancels Wedding After Friends Refused to Pay Nearly £1,000 Each to Attend

A woman canceled her wedding after her friends refused to pay nearly £1,000 to attend her wedding.

The Canadian bride, Susan, wanted her dream wedding with her childhood sweetheart in a lavish $CAD 60,000 ($46,020) wedding. However, she called off the wedding only four days before it was scheduled because nobody was willing to pay, and the expenses were too much to bear.

The crushed woman took to Facebook and lashed out at her friends and family, who didn’t cooperate with her so that she could have the wedding of her dreams.

“Dear friends, it comes with great sadness that I am announcing the cancellation of the wedding. I apologise for cancelling only four days beforehand,” she wrote in a lengthy post. “Unfortunately, [fiance] and I have broken up due to some recent and irreparable problems. We have decided to end our relationship and not go forth with any future proceedings.”

Susan explained how her relationship ended when their friends refused to pay her requested money.

“I specifically, I mean specifically asked for cash gifts. How could we have our wedding that we dreamed of without proper funding?” she said. “We’d sacrificed so much and only asked each guest for around $1,500. We talked to a few people who even promised us more to make our dream come true.”

“My maid of honor pledged $5,000 along with her planning services. We tearfully thanked and accepted. My ex’s family offered to contribute $3,000,” she continued. “So our request for $1,500 for all other guests was not f***ing out of the ordinary. Like, we made it clear. If you couldn’t contribute, you weren’t invited to our exclusive wedding. It’s a once and a lifetime party.”

Revealing the reason behind the extravagant wedding plan, Susan wrote,

“Since our love was like a fairytale, we wanted an extravagant blow out wedding… A local psychic told us to go with the most expensive option, and we thought why the hell not?” She explained. “We just needed a little push. Our dream wedding amounted to $60,000… All we asked was for a little help from our friends and family to make it happen.”

However, after the couple sent out the wedding invites, only eight guests RSVP’d with a check for $1500.

“We were f***ing livid,” Susan wrote. “How was this supposed to happen without a little help from our friends. To make matters worse, my ex’s family took back their offer.”

“Suddenly, more people backed out, including the c*** maid of honor. My best friend since childhood. My second family. I was so shocked and tearful,” she added. “It was only a month before the wedding. To cancel everything would have been more than $5,000.”

She said she and her fiancé even asked the guests to donate whatever they could afford. The couple even set up a GoFundMe account, but it only got them $250.

“I mean seriously people, what is $1,000? What is $1,500? Clearly, not a lot. It would be quite manageable and within budget. I’ve heard of people asking for worse,” she said. “We also set up a GoFundMe. That only got us $250. At this point we were exhausted, tired. I yelled at my ex; I became unravelled. I realised my dream wedding was becoming a nightmare. Then it got worse.”

She said after many unsuccessful attempts, her then-fiancé suggested they should elope to Vegas to cut down on the expenses.

“I laughed in his face, but he was dead serious. He wanted those cheap, filthy, w**** like Vegas weddings. I mean WHAT the f***?? Was he out of his mind?” she penned. “Am I some h**ch piece of f***ing trash, a hooker? Am I supposed to like the idea of getting married in the heart of shady gamblers, alcoholics, and the get rich fast fallacy? Suddenly, my body began to shake as I entered a panic attack.”

“My ex left the room and didn’t apologise for his horrid suggestion. I then called my maid of honor and cried my eyes out. Instead of sympathy, I was told that I was asking for way too much and I should stick to the budget.” 

“How could someone who offered me thousands of dollars then deny me my promised money and then tell me to shift down my budget? She knows my f***ing dream was a blowout wedding.”

The woman said she just wanted to be a Kardashian for one day and then continue to live her ordinary life, but nothing worked out for her.

Moreover, she heard her ex gossiping about her behind her back.

“I overheard him talking in the basement when he called me a stuck up b****. Anyway I am exhausted. I am bone tired. My heart is not the same. It’s stone cold.”

She concluded her post by writing, “How hard would it to have been to f***ing give me money for my wedding. I won’t even sugarcoat. I won’t even pretend that’s now what I wanted. It was for a dream. I was stabbed, cheated on… Goodbye. See you in two months. Friendly reminder to you c***s. Don’t think you own me. I am cutting all of you snakes off. I am living my life alone now. I only let those I believe have good intentions.”
