Bride cancels wedding over prenup and invites needy families to reception instead
Two blog posts in one day?, I hear you say. Well after that last one which has left a real bitter taste in my mouth I had to post something a little bit sweeter to try and take away the bitterness.
I read an article a couple of days ago in the press of a bride who wouldn’t sign a prenup throwing a party for vulnerable and needy children instead.
Yiru Sun wore her bridal gown and shared her would-be wedding day with 60 underprivileged kids.
The Manhattan insurance executive was supposed to tie the knot in a lavish Upper East Side wedding Saturday. But after balking at the proposed prenup, she turned her heartbreak — and her non-refundable $8,000 reception deposit — into something beautiful: a lunch for 60 needy kids and their families.
“I should have been the bride. It was cancelled,” Sun told her guests. “Initially I felt frustrated,” said Sun, declining to dish about her former betrothed, not even to name him.
“I don’t want to sign things I don’t feel comfortable with,” is all she’ll reveal of the prenup bust-up.
“Three weeks later, I woke up with this idea,” Sun, herself a single mum of a 6-year-old daughter, told her guests, who were chosen with help from The Salvation Army. “I cannot be the princess of my wedding day, but I can give the kids a fairy tale.”
