The person who brought this story mentions that the bride and groom had been a couple for no less than six years and invited more than 500 people to witness their holy matrimony. The thing is, the groom took off before there was anything to witness.
That’s not even the worst part — he took his EX-GIRLFRIEND to what would have been the couple’s HONEYMOON and then let the fiancee know about it with an EMAIL. The nerve!
Keeping the Faith
Look, we don't really know what compelled the groom into leaving his bride this way, but frankly, we are struggling to think of an excuse that would make us stop wanting to TP his house at the very least.
The sweet bride seems to have handled things bravely with her close friends and family and an adjusted ceremony that shows she still has faith.
Running Away From the Aisle
Remember that scene from "Runaway Bride" when Julia Roberts walks down the aisle and then right before she reaches the actual altar takes a sharp turn and starts running? This story is a little like that, except the walking (bride) and running (groom) are done simultaneously. The horror.
The story gets even more horrific when you realize the bridesmaids were all wearing what can only be described as an orange version of "The Handmaid's Tale" costumes.
Two for One
The quote below comes from someone who's been working in the wedding industry for many years and states to have seen it all and treat us with two stories!
Actually, now that we're thinking about it, maybe "treat" isn't the right word to use here as both stories kind of make us feel horrible for everyone involved. Well, maybe not everyone, the groom/maid of honor duo could step on Lego bricks for the rest of their lives for all we care.
The Icing on the Cake
Generally speaking, it's great to have alcohol at weddings. Usually, a glass or two are just the thing that the couple needs to de-stress and the guests to feel loose enough to dance. The trouble starts when the groom has too much of it before the ceremony and decides to just leave.
Thankfully, there is a happy ending to this case — the bride found another partner, started a family, and is even able to actually decorate other people's wedding cakes for a living!
