Broken Heart... Heart vol1.

The salon where I work get many bridal party appointments, especially on weekends. It's always nice to see soon-to-be brides being so happy and anxious for the big day. And I must say I love weddings!

About a month ago, a woman called in to make an appointment for her and her bridesmaids. "I'm getting married the next day," she said with delight. I congratulated her and told her she must be very excited. "Yes, I am very excited! I'm still nervous because there are many things I need to get done, but I'm very very excited."

How wonderful is that? The feelings of being in love and walking down on the aisle to meet her future husband. It's one of the lifetime moments where you feel tremendous love and happiness surrounded by your loved ones. It's just so special.. So, I was all gigglie and felt warmth in my heart when I made the appointment for the girl.

But then, the beginning of last week, the girl's mother called the salon saying that her daughter made an appointment for her wedding. The mom said, "Well, I need to cancel the appointment for her because.... well, you know, the groom called off the wedding.." I was speechless. I didn't know what to say except, "Oh no.. I'm so sorry. That's no problem. So sorry again."

What a shocker. I was stunned. I felt really really terrible for the bride. It happened a week before their wedding when the groom just decided he didn't want to get married. Really? Seriously? Of course it's for the best for the long run, I'm sure. It's brutal honesty on the groom's part. But I couldn't stop thinking about her. Her dream of becoming a wife of her dream and it was totally shuttered a week before the wedding. I'm 100% positive she's broken hearted.

A few days later her wedding planner came in and she told me and my boss what happened. She said the groom called his fiance/bride and told her he doesn't want to get married. The planner said, "She didn't see it coming, so she's quite devastated actually..." Yeah, really? I woul be! I don't know about you, but I think weddings are kind of a big deal. You can't just say "let's get married!" and the next day, "let's not get married!" - you really have to know what you're doing.

I'm sure most of you have gone through many breakups and makeups in your life. You often wonder how many breakups do you need to go through before you find "THE ONE" that won't break your heart. When you find a prince charming and he asks your hand to marry him on his knee, don't you believe right there and then that he'll never break your heart? I guess in reality, sometimes that's not always the case. It's really sad, but true. But I also know that marriage sometimes hands you lemons and limes. And it takes two to make good lemonades and delicious margaritas.

I just hope the bride finds joy and happiness in her life and the real prince charming very soon...

P.S. Did you have a nice weekend, my loves?

Oh that's awful! I can only imagine how devastated she must feel. My heart goes out to her.

that's really sad. I feel awful for her, that must have been an awful situation and really difficult for her to share that the wedding wasn't happening. As sad as it is, it is for the best. For them to get married and them him change his mind after would have been so much worse

I guess it is for the best he said something but how sad for the bride and what a terrible time to tell her...

Dionne said...

Oh how heartbreaking!

I feel so sad for her, but at the same time, glad that he broke it off before they tied the knot.

The reason he left it so late was probably because he was scared to say anything because so many plans had been made, the church booked, people ready to come out, etc - and he felt like it was too late to pull out. But that is no excuse - he should have sucked it all up and broke up with her long before the week of the wedding! That poor girl! She deserves better anyway.

ohh my gosh sad!!! breaking off a wedding is way worse than just breaking up. how rude of him! probably could have thought about it before he proposed!

LINDSAY said...

Ah, that's so sad. Poor gal.

WhisperingWriter said...

That is incredibly sad. That poor girl.

Maki said...

Girlies: Yes you are all right about this!!!

Dionne: I agree with you 100% - he was soo afraid of telling her the truth and more he hesitated more deeper his hole became. Gosh at least he told her - but I would be devastated if it was me!
