Just a thought...

what if she was calling to see at what stage the cake was at but when OP told her all it needed was final touches, the btb didn't have the courage to tell her the wedding or the check had been cancelled. Not saying that that would make it right, it would, however, make it not so premeditated...like she was trying to get cake for nothing. What if the OP hadn't been notified...loaded the cake...tra la la la la down to the venue he/she goes...only to hear, "oh, didn't she tell you? the wedding was cancelled." There may have been cake flyin' then(if it'd been me, I woulda found where that bi45h lived and cake her freakin' house!)

kay so sorry I have been working on cake #2 for tomorrow and had to read through all the other posts when getting back.



So ...no word from bride, left message on her phne, grooms phone and MOB phone......I talked to bank and they said that she had called that morn and issued stop payment on the check ( which yes I had deposited, but the bank can still "recall" the funds at clients request) they said she did actually specify, correct check number and amount.....which was for the $550 she owed.


Okay so i just got off the phone with venue ( a place i work with quite a bit so i know them well)....they said bride and wedding party has been there most of the day but were gone to have hair done, i explained the situation to them and faxed a copy of the stop payment from the bank.

Venue rep said she would personally take the notice an put it in the brides hands and the salon ( BTW venue and salon are 35 minute drive from me...so that is why venue rep is taking notice)

she said id bride wanted the cake she would take her money and give it to me when i bring cake...if bride does not have money to pay..she will call me back and make sure everyone at the reception know why there is not a cake...


And yes I am legally covered with my contratc because I have it clearly stated that NO refund on deposits are given without proper notice of cancellation in writing and signed by both parties.


So now I am waiting to hear from venue rep...just gonna focus my work on cake #2 ( which is for a very dear friend) and get some lunch.

Delivering the cake as far as the parking lot wouldn't necessarily be a petty or unprofessional gesture - although it could in a way feel like one and give the OP a tiny bit of satisfaction. As someone else said, it's a matter of follow-through. Whether to just be certain there's not some misunderstanding on the one hand or to bolster a legal claim on the other, this is what I would do.

Hopefully, for the sake of the bride and family, that is not why she canceled. That would be really sad.



I don't think I'd have the presence of mind to run over to the bank first thing after a tornado to stop payment on a check! I highly doubt that a storm had anything to do with this.

since that vendor rep is doing so much for you, if the bride does not want to pay, then take the cake to the vendor rep, they deserve it. Its nice to know youve got friends, and comrades at arms.
Do you need an air conditioner........nah, we just flew in from the face of the sun, and are just trying to aclimate ourselves!!

i understand that ppl want to give the bride the benefit of the doubt since we only know one side of the story but it sounds awfully fishy that she called to op confirming all the necessary details (the wedding still being on the night before) then called the bank to stop the payment. and if there had been a storm/tornado that night that messed up the wedding why stop the payment, why not call the op and talk about a delay for reason of the storm. i'm sure she'd be understanding of those circumstances and hold the cake (upon full payment) and now i am letting my brides know that i will require the final payment of cakes in full in cash no later than 2 weeks before the wedding date! so thank you op for a lesson learned-and i'm sorry that you have to go through this and i hope you weren't effected by the storm and everything is okay icon_smile.gif

Isn't it great when you work with venues who are willing to watch out for you! This is really getting good! Can't wait to hear what happens next!

Can someone pass the popcorn, please?

that's not exactly true. if you cash the check and it is later returned, the bank will deduct that amount from your account. It isn't going to pursue payment for the bad check.





If I take a check to the bank...any bank...even the same bank as mine...all they require is my dl# so how would they deduct that amount from my account? If, when I cashed it, the check was good?

So much for the "cancelled the wedding" theory, and the "tornado wrecks havoc" theory. I wish I weren't so cynical, but I can 100% believe this was just a scam to get a cheap cake.

That sure is going to suck when there's a big ol' space on the cake table where the cake should be.

She thought she was a genius when she emailed "pretending" everything was on the up and up, only to be kicked in the teeth by her own deception.

Hope she enjoys eating a cancelled check for dessert.

People never cease to amaze me, does integrity even exist anymore?

I am so sorry this happened to you. I would love to be at the Salon when they give her the note in front of everyone. That will surely teach her a lesson.

This is better than watching the Young and the Restless and its cliffhanger Friday......Stay Tuned
