Canceled Wedding Turns into Feast for the Homeless

Carol and Willie Fowler of Atlanta planned to host a large wedding for their daughter, Tamara. But Tamara canceled the wedding with only 40 days to go, and the restaurant was reserved. So they had the feast anyway, and contacted the organization Hosea Feed the Hungry & Homeless to invite 200 homeless people for the meal. And 200 people came to the four-course meal at a fancy restaurant with entertainment. Everyone had such a good time that the Fowlers plan to find sponsors and make it an annual event. Link -Thanks, Bill Badrick!

To be honest, that would be rather selfish to do. Yes it would be hard but you have to think about the poor unfortunates out there that would get to "put on the ritz" so to speak. I think a good compromise would be having it on a different day because honestly, it is a wonderful idea.

As awesome as it was to do it once, doing it every year seems like it would painful for the daughter. Calling off your wedding isn't the kind of thing that's no big deal. If I were the bride who didn't end up getting hitched, I would be absolutely happy for folks who needed it to get something nice out of the unfortunate situation my cancellation created. But I wouldn't want to be reminded annually about that time that I was planning to get married and it fell through. That would bring up old heartbreak and negativity every single year.
