So about a month ago, I made a post about my photographer from my wedding pushing me into wedding planning, http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/i-have-a-dream-1. With a few extra pushes from the DH and family I made a go at it. Lucky for me I already have 6 clients (4 paying, 1 friend who I offered for free, and 1 that one of my wedding vendors did as a give away on her site, so that I can build a portfolio).
This morning I got an email from one of my brides saying that on Saturday night her FI sent her a message through FB saying that he was making a big mistake and that he was sorry, but he knew in his gut getting married to her would just end in disaster. He changed his relationship status to single and wrote a blanket apology as his status to their family and friends. He hasn’t returned her phone calls and niether will his parents or friends. She also mentioned that she drove to his house and it looks like he’s staying somewhere, as the dog was gone too. She asked me to call the vendors for her, which of course I will.
Can you believe this guy? I feel terrible for her. When did FB become the means to communicate life changing information? What a coward.

Definitely the coward’s way out. Sending e-mails/messages/letters are an easy way to do things because you don’t have to deal with the reaction. I think it’s ok for some smaller things, but definitely not for ANY kind of break-up, let alone from an engagement!! Yuck.

She is better off. What an A$$*&^ like seriously? Not appropriate . We need some sort of society intervention when it come to facebook. Too many things like this are happening.

I totally agree with you. What a coward. He couldn’t even tell her this in person or help her cancel the wedding. My heart goes out to that bride…

Is she for real? Well actually….if she is having you call other vendors, it must be real.
Poor girl 🙁

Omg. That’s horrible. Good riddance, it sounds like he did her a favour. Could you imagine being married to that guy?! I hope she’s okay. Send her hugs from the hive!

@PinkPinstripes: Totally for real. Just read it on his FB page.

Well he’s a first class asshole, isn’t he? Calling off an engagement is bad enough but via FB?! He clearly has no respect for her. She’ll be much better off without this guy.

@mwitter80: Honestly, he has done that girl a HUGE favor. I know it doesn’t seem that way now, but what a COWARD.

What a complete loser, your friend can do a lot better and I hope she moves on. I will say I’m not surprised that he broke up with her via facebook. People put all their personal business on their pages and status’s whether is good or bad. Facebook has become a way of life for some people, spending up to 40 hours a week on that thing. That is a full time job.

Wow, he can’t even talk to her and explain, do not propose to someone if you are not serious about them, I mean c’mon this is a lifetime committment! I hope that she finds someone much better, as I’m sure she will and he will regret this for the rest of his life, and his family too, really!? what kind of family is this??? very rude and unbelievable!
