Weddings do not always go as planned. While there is a huge market for weddings ever since they became a modern milestone, anything monetized or commercialized tends to get spoiled. One bride even burst into tears after realizing that her wedding planner scammed her with styrofoam or polystyrene cake.
We have seen our fair share of really bad weddings, but boy, oh boy, this one takes the cake. It happened in the Philippines to 26-year-old Shine Tamayo and her betrothed, 40 -year-old Jhon Chen. Both of them paid the wedding planner P140,000 ($2,700) to supply the food and decorations for their wedding.
The two got married, said their vows, and then went to the party. As usual, the mandatory cake cutting took place. However, when Tamayo, the bride, sliced through the icing, she discovered that it was not pastry she was cutting into, but polystyrene styrofoam. She couldn’t help it, Tamayo burst into tears in front of her family and friends:
Immediately after the styrofoam cake was discovered, the guests and family took the wedding planner culprit to the police. Upon closer inspection, the police found out that the whole base of the two-tier cake was made purely out of styrofoam and covered with icing. It was only the top tier which was real.
“The woman we paid to do the food has ruined my wedding… I will not accept sorry from her, an apology is not good enough, she needs to go to jail because she ruined my wedding. I have never been so humiliated in all my life. This was supposed to be one of my most treasured memories for my entire life. Instead, it is the worst,” said a distraught Tamayo.
Meanwhile, the wedding planner, Krissa Cananea, has been questioned by the police and is already awaiting trial. Suffice to say, the wedding planner could not have her cake and eat it too.
