Ah, what?! That asshole! So that's what's been going on!
****, as much as I really wanna help, I'm afraid I ran out of money myself, and getting a job isn't easy. I also don't have paypal...
But dammit, that's just fuckin' wrong! If a date is taken, swallow up your damn pride and find another fuckin' date! I hope that asshole rots in the lowest trenches of the Earth for ruinin' another person's wedding! What makes him so goddamn fuckin' important?!
Woah woah wooah. What's with everyone calling this anonymous guy a jerk? I'm sure to him his own freaking wedding is just as important. If anything FQ and her fiance could be ruining THIS guy's wedding. So what makes them so important, too?
Thank you again everyone. I woke up today still a bit in shock at everything heh.
And thanks for thinking our puppy is so cute ^^ She was a rescue from an abusive puppy mill so she's the sweetest chihuahua you'll ever meet. When I was upset over this whole matter she would come and sleep beside my head hehe.
And I also feel that the venue messed with us a bit. But when it comes to size and budget there wasn't much we could do. Our alternate options were a place WITHIN our budget which only held 10 people, or a place of proper size but cost $5,700. Sometimes you just gotta put up with bullshit when it's what you really need.
If you'd bothered to read the first post in here, you'd see that this low class person basically made an offer to pay up front for the venue that FangireQueen and LunaTrigger had already booked in advance, essentially stealing it out from under them. Anyone who would do something like that just to push their own big day ahead of someone else's with no regard for their situation doesn't deserve any sympathy.
Well then I guess it's my bad for calling out the people who ranted off on him and knew what was going on. That is pretty much an underhanded move from that other guy. But for those who didn't exactly know, I still think they should be feeling bad for you guys (because we all love you!), but not sooo outwardly hate on the guy if they didn't know what exactly went on.
FQ.. did you know that this guy had been kinda pushing from before? Because obviously you can't have known what'd end up happening, but perhaps this is a good life lesson for next time just to keep some emergency money at all times. Or bring it up with whatever you're dealing with so the opposition doesn't get the "upper hand" next time..
Either way, personally, I'm worried about your financial situation.. because to be planning all of this and yet not allow yourself room for such emergency money I find to be pretty risky. I understand bills were high this month but I personally believe you should have at least a good chunk in the bank tucked away in case anything major ever happened. But that's just me and I'm a saver, not a spender.
Obviously you can't make that much money in a heartbeat because there are living expenses and whatnot.. but you two will be starting your lives together and I just want to make sure it's a comfortable one where you never have to run into a situation such as this.
Random question, but do you have a wedding planner? Or are you both doing all the planning or getting your maid of honor and best man to help you with it?
I'm just curious. Cause planning it out all yourselves seems SUPER hard and crazy stressful. But saves the bucks in the end!
My bad also about the loan. Didn't know it'd be that much trouble. Hopefully everything turns out in your favour. Good luck!
Needless to say I found out who the guy is, and no I won't reveal it (too many people here would probably try to find him ). I am not going to cause a mess with him because yes, he is a very big time player where we live, and it's best to not cause more drama than he already caused.
if you think about the "many people here would probably try to find him", you'll see that's pretty scary. Like a lot
Also, if this guy is as you say he is, I fear this could not be the right thing to do. People like that sometimes do not like to have things not going how they want. Sometimes they can be vindictive [personal experience, and it wasn't someone out of the family like in your case, it was a strict parent], so while I hope nothing's gonna happen, be aware of him. You never know.
Now go back workin on your wedding, we're waitin for it to happen ^__^
I never asked for this money from everyone. I was prepared to just say goodbye to my wedding dreams and learn to compromise. The fire was from my dear friend Undrave who started this thread. I didn't tell him, nor ask him, to do it. This is why I'm truly shocked and humbled by it all. We could have gotten by somehow, but friends wanted to give us what they felt we deserved. And for that I'm eternally grateful.
