The Bride and Groom who never paid for their big day!

I can forgive many things and anyone who knows me knows that I generally see the best in people, including those we are chasing for money. But some things are just inexcusable- getting married, having an extravagant wedding but not paying the venue is one of these things. We were just given a debt to collect from a resort who are owed $8700 by the bride and groom. Venue was booked in early 2018, deposit was paid, more pre-payments were made, arrangements to pay the remainder on the day were agreed on, wedding went ahead without a hitch…..crickets and tumbleweeds from the new Mr and Mrs every since. I mean, what sort of omen is this for their marriage that it started out basically as fraud. And I know weddings are expensive. I really do. But if you can’t afford it, don’t get married!! And for those wondering whether it was just an accidental oversight- no, it wasn’t. They have ignored countless phone calls, countless reminders, and an official Letter of Demand.

Rant over. We will collect this debt. Make no mistake of that, my team and I are collectively aghast at the behavior of this couple. And it will be a sweet victory when we do, for the venue and for everyone else as appalled by this story as we are.
