A Bride Had to Cancel Her Wedding…
Author: Maureen C. Gilmer
Posted on July 16, 2017 by Soren Dreier


Sarah Cummins and Logan Araujo were supposed to get married this weekend. The two young people had been planning a dream wedding for two years — a $30,000 extravaganza.

A week ago, she called it off (she prefers not to say why), and both were left with broken hearts and a nonrefundable contract for a venue and a plated dinner for 170 guests Saturday night at the Ritz Charles in Carmel.

“It was really devastating,” said Cummins, a 25-year-old pharmacy student at Purdue University. “I called everyone, canceled, apologized, cried, called vendors, cried some more and then I started feeling really sick about just throwing away all the food I ordered for the reception,” she said.

She decided to bring some purpose to the couple’s pain. After discussing it with Araujo, she worked with event planner Maddie LaDow at the Ritz Charles to rearrange the reception area, then started contacting homeless shelters in Indianapolis and Noblesville and inviting residents to her party.

(.....)

With help from friends, Cummins has arranged for two buses to pick up shelter residents and families late Saturday afternoon to take them to the Ritz Charles. She’s hoping for about 150 people, but there’s no firm count yet.

A beautiful thing -- turning grief and loss into something positive.

This is nice...a stupid way to waste $30k but whatever.

I thought it was going to say she cancelled her wedding because that one bridal store went under.

She prefers not to say why. Her fiancee probably broke it to her that once they were married, he was no longer going to be the one wearing the dress.

Must be nice spending so much on the reception hall and cake and food. If I had 30k extra laying around I would rather it go towards the couples down payment on a first house

But in this story, glad that the poor had a special day dining and dressing up.

What part of "nonrefundable contract" do you not understand?

I perceived that comment was in response to deciding to spend $30,000 and being a wasteful amount of money for a wedding in the first place, and I agree. Get married in a back yard or park and keep it simple, but then I'm practical.

Every few years or so I read a story very similar to this one. A bride spends many thousands on a wedding, the wedding is canceled, and she decides to throw a huge party for the homeless…..

Some part of me doesn't believe these feel good stories every 5 years or so. I don't know why….maybe it's because who would throw away $30,000? You can feed the homeless for a lot less than that, and they don't need a fancy reception hall. So in canceling the wedding she couldn't get back the majority of the $30,000 and it would have been a total loss?

What's with these seemingly feel good news stories? Just a distraction to keep us going until the next terror attack, or what?

Maybe it's just to let us know that there are rich people capable of compassion and charity even in their time of suffering.
