Spurned bride donates fairy tale wedding to non-profit

Ah weddings, expensive, beautiful and romantic…but only if the groom sticks around.  For Michelle Marxen it was past the point of refunds when her lover decided to fore-go the act.

So what does one do with all the non-refundable trappings of a fairy tale wedding, complete with ballroom, photography, limo’s, and a much sought-after band?

You donate it.  To a non-profit.  Like a boss.

Michelle is my hero for donating her non-refundable wedding banquet to Creative Care for Reaching Independence.  She decided to not let her wedding cake crumble just because her groom bailed at the last minute.   Instead she’s made it possible for Creative Care to throw a legendary Halloween party for everyone the organization supports.

standing ovationThat is outstanding philanthropy! Brava! Brava!

If I ever get jilted at the alter I hope to have the stones that this woman has. You are a woman of heart, integrity, and serious moxy, Michelle.  Next time I hope you get a groom who is worthy of you.

Michelle will be in Vegas on the night of her planned wedding.  I hope that night looks something like this:
