And here I thought Canadians were such nice people.
from the Daily Mail:
A disgruntled bride-to-be has revealed she was forced to cancel her extravagant ‘fairytale’ wedding after her guests refused to pay $CAD 1,500 each to attend.
The Canadian bride, who is known only as ‘Susan’, was due to tie the knot with her childhood sweetheart in a lavish $CAD 60,000 ($46,020) wedding.
But the couple decided to call off the ceremony just four days before exchanging their vows after they struggled to foot the bill.
Taking to Facebook to explain their decision, the furious mother-of-one blamed her family and friends for the breakdown of her relationship as she vented her frustration in a lengthy post.
The post goes: ‘Dear friends, it comes with great sadness that I am announcing the cancellation of the wedding. I apologise for cancelling only four days beforehand.
‘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 then explained how her relationship ended abruptly because her guests failed to fork out the $CAD 1,500 ($1,150) they had requested.
‘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.
