Wrong Wedding Cake - what to do!?! - Page 6

post #76 of 119
The groom not showin up = ruined wedding
Show up at reception and no food, drink or music people show up = ruined wedding reception
Getting caught in the pouring down rain in my wedding dress & makeup smearing down my face right before the wedding = ruined wedding pictures
Getting the wrong flavor of cake = mild disappointment
I agree she's owed a partial refund and maybe a new anniversary cake. Thats it!

Mahzooka : you have to expect other opinions when you post here..thats the whole point. You are never going to find in a large group of people that everyone will share your point of view.

I'm sorry no one thinks a bride can be "overly emotional" about something she planned and wanted perfect on her special day. Sheesh.. won't be posting here again.

And hey - don't get all snippy about the posts telling your cousin to "get over it". There are just as many of us, if not more, saying otherwise and agreeing with you. You asked for opinions and you are getting them, it's not personal. We treat each other as family here and families don't always get along or agree, but they always welcome each other and support each other. You have to be able to agree to disagree here - it's a pretty darn big community here and we are all lucky to have each other. If you choose not to post again, well that's just a shame, you will certainly be missing out. I'd suggesting rethinking that. It's worth it to be here.

You asked for opinions, and that's what we gave, Were you expecting everyone to agree with you?

I can see how Mahzooka would be upset.. she originally posted to get an opinion on how the bride should handle the situation.. not an opinion on the Bride's reaction. And since she probably was not expecting people to comment on the bride's reaction, it would hurt and be upsetting hearing negative things about a loved on. I think we can all agree we don't like hearing negative things about the people we love. I do agree that everyone is titled to an opinion, and this community is wonderful in so many ways thumbs_up.gif however on this one, I think it got off topic. The issue is with the cake.. not the bride's reaction.
Don't cry cause it's over, smile because it happened.

Iheartcake - the thing that bothered me was - because a few people did not agree with the reaction of the bride, she is ready to write off the entire community. She chose to focus on those people who did not agree and not those of us who agreed that they would be upset as well.

Part of the issue with the cake was the bride's reaction. If it had not upset her then Mahzooka would not have posted. Some people felt that the answer to the problem was to not let it bother her - now that's not MY answer (I'd want a FULL refund), but to someone else it was a valid response to the question, so I don't really feel it was off topic.

You are exactly right that we don't like hearing negative things about the people we love - that's why I did not like the comment about not posting here anymore because of someone's reaction. I love this community. icon_wink.gif

It's so funny and so predictable how these threads twist and turn...someone posts something, some people agree, some people disagree, some people try to analyze and rephrase what the original poster really was trying to say, others go on to analyze what other respondents have said, the original poster gets pissed and says she's never coming back here because she didn't get the support she wanted, others criticize her reaction, others beg her to stay, other chastise others for posting their opinions which pissed off the OP, and then a bunch of people say how much they love CC.

Cakepro- LOL

Ok, am I the only one curious to know how everything turned out? I keep checking on this one just to see the end result (which Im sure has a happy ending). Tell us, what happened?!

IMHO , but.. if the bride allowed that mix up to completely ruin her wedding reception, she has a lot of growing up to do..

my mother told me before my wedding that 'there will be things today that won't go as you planned them, they won't be because of anybody's intent to ruin your day, life just sometimes happens, you will probably be the only one who even notices, let nothing and nobody ruin this day".

i would certainly give the bride a partial refund......

this young bride will someday realize that in the grand scheme of things, it is just after all 'a cake'. hopefully she will never have to bury a child, or a spouse, lose a home to fire or flood, ect., to know how a dream can be "completely ruined'.

In this day and age, when it is so hard to find the right person.... the cake, although important, is not the end of the world.

It showed up, it looked nice. Wrong flavor. ok, disappointing, but if that 'ruins' your wedding, you need a reality check.

Now if someone plowed into the cake and knocked it onto the floor, or like a story last week, where a drunk lady ran her fingers thru it... that might rate higher points on 'ruin' the wedding.

My wedding: The priest was late for the rehearsal, so we 'rehearsed' with the secretary for 10 minutes. Therefore, the ceremony had the music wrong. My rehearsal dinner was in a room that was a pathway to other rooms; we had people walking thru. Then the photographers got lost on the way to the reception. We had to start without them. We had no air conditioning in the limo, on a 90+ day. The grooms brother went to the wrong reception, and showed up 2 hours late.

Did any of that 'ruin' my wedding? NO WAY. I married an awesome man, and it had taken me *SEVEN YEARS* to find him.

Fairy tale weddings are not realistic. Life is hard. It's not a fairy tale.

man, I didnt even get a piece of my wedding cake, couldnt even tell you what flavor it was but everyone ate it and loved it so it must have been good!
I hope she calls and gets a refund of some sort!

i'll tell you something...if this were to go to small claims court, the bride would get every penny of her money back. if she signed a contract and in the contract it specifically stated the design and flavor of the cake and that wasn't delivered, then the bride would be entitled to a full refund. how do i know this...well a little too much of judge judy! icon_lol.gificon_cry.gif
