I’m so sorry that you lost out on the money with your daughter cancelling the wedding.  At least they didn’t cancel the wedding for another reason.

I am so sorry that she did this. Hopefully, you can get some of the deposit money back and return some items. Maybe there was some drama going on and she just didn’t want to deal with it. Maybe you can have a reception when she gets back 🙂

May 7?  Wow, that’s a little over a month away!  I am sorry this is happening to you.  I wish you luck (especially with getting some of your deposits back)

What was her reasoning for the cancellation?  Is she just frustrated with wedding planning,  I know the weeks leading up to my wedding I wanted to elope.  It’s stressful.  Can you calmly talk to her and find out her reasonings and see if there is some sort of resolution.  Explain nicely about the lost deposit, changing guests’ plans, and also that one day she may regret not having a wedding.  Reassure her that everything will be ok, and getting frustrated is normal.  I know it seems counterintuitive because you are upset right now (with good reason) but maybe offering support to her will help

I’m sorry to hear about your situation. I know everyone says the bride & groom should do what makes them happy… but people forget that parents also spend all of their adult lives waiting for their children to marry. It is a parents’ dream as much as it is the child’s dream. Sorry you won’t get to experience that with your daughter, and that she was not most considerate of the finances you gave to her.

Maybe you should put her on a payment plan to pay back what you are out. You basically entered into a “contract” with the end result being her wedding. Then again that might cause some bad blood, so I guess only you can decide what is best for your situation. Good luck.

This is just so sad, both for the situation now and because its so obvious that she will deeply regret this one day.  I will be praying for you.

I’m so sorry.  I never did agree with the “it’s the bride & groom’s day, whatever makes them happy” mentality either…  Sometimes people just have to learn the hard way.
