Bride-to-be is branded ‘turned in’ and ‘immoral’ because she wants to cancel her wedding abroad for which 40 guests have already paid – because she prefers to put her savings in a house
- Anonymous bride, from the UK, would get married abroad March next year
- The pair have only paid for the venue so far, but 40 wedding guests have paid to attend
- Bride debates about canceling a marriage and saving for home instead
- One called her “immoral,” while others claimed to repay the others
An expectant bride has been slammed online after revealing she wants to cancel her wedding abroad for which 40 guests have paid to participate, so she can spend her savings to her dream home instead.
The anonymous woman, believed to be from the UK, went to the social networking site Mumsnet to explain that she and her partner are getting married abroad in March next year – and so far have only paid the venue deposit.
Despite 40 guests paying for their package holidays, she admitted that she’s considering canceling her big day altogether – because she prefers to put the money into a dream home she found.
Unsurprisingly, many quickly went to the comments section to express their views on the matter – with people calling her everything from “immoral” to “turned inside”.
“I think you should offer to repay those who have paid and who cannot get their money back. It would be immoral to cancel and abandon them, “wrote one, while a simple addition was,” No one can be absorbed in themselves like that. ‘

In the post, the bride-to-be writes, “The only reason I want to cancel is because I don’t think it’s going to happen. With covid, the possibility of a second wave and social distance etc. I just don’t see realistically how it goes on. ‘
“We had the wedding next year and bought a house the next year, but we have enough savings for a home deposit or the wedding.”
“A house has come up that we love, it is in the perfect location and is exactly what we want.”
“We can’t get the house and cancel / postpone the wedding because we don’t have enough savings to cover both if the wedding goes on … What should I do?”

And while many suggested canceling because of coronavirus was a valid reason to call the big day off, they agreed that they didn’t want to spend money elsewhere.
Canceling because of Covid is one thing. Canceling because there is something else you want to spend your money on seems a bit wrong, ‘wrote one.
A second suggested, “I think by March most things will be back to normal and your wedding can go on as planned. Unless all of your guests can get a full refund, you can’t cancel, ‘while a third said:
“I would be really annoyed if I was invited to a wedding and booked and paid to cancel it, not even the money they would have taken away from work on vacation.”
Others were even less sympathetic to the bride-to-be’s dilemma, suggesting that if she did cancel, she would offer guests who paid a full refund.
“You should expect to pay for the people who have already booked,” one argued, and another added, “You can’t let 40 guests out of your pocket.”
