- Wedding: October 2011
My dj is a friend from my old job, (I’ll use friend loosely). He dj’d at clubs and he was reccomended to me from other co-workers where he would do their kids school dances, etc. So, last October I contacted him and we decided to book him for our day. He was always a very fun guy and I knew that I loved his personality…plus I like knowing people who are involved in my wedding.
Let’s fast forward to 4 months ago- I saw on FB his status was ” DJ A…” is moving to Texas!! “
I freaked out a little and called him. He ensured me don’t worry he will still be at my big day and told me how perfect is would be blah blah blah. At this point, I shoulda cancelled him.
so- then a month ago, he called to tell me Texas didnt work out and he was going to open this new club in Cape Coral called Dixie Roadhouse and he is super excited to be a part owner of a club. I was impressed at how good he must be opening a club and again he ensured me how great everything would be and how excited he was. He asked me to send him an email with all our songs, etc.
Friday I sent him an email listing out all the details of the wedding day. No response. Monday I texted him, no response. Tuesday I texted with a little more urgency . still no response.
Last night, he calls me. He sounds like is high or drunk and explains to me that he has good news and bad news. Then he asked if I trust him. I answered with “starting not too, you are really hard to get a hold of”. He explained that he met some girl and decided to fly to Vegas and get married. They are there now and were financially irrisponsible and need me to send the money upfront so they can get back to FL. I told him that was not our agreement, and what says he wont have enough money to fly to Chicago for my wedding in 10 days? He said he was really embarassed and they cant even afford a hotel…so they are just walking around Vegas waiting to get money to get back to FL. He promised on his life and his new bride’s life he wouldnt stand me up on my wedding day. I told him that he is putting me in a hard spot and Ill call him back.
I had my dad call him and break it off. We are so pissed and I swear to God he seems that he spent all his money on drugs, because who would fly to Vegas to get married and not have any money, credit cards, or friends to rely on? He said that he was irrisponsible and wasnt gambling…what else is there then?
Talk about stress!
