This is such a generous thing to do.  I'm sure someone of her character will find the right Mr. Right someday.

  • The link didn't work for me. Is that the bride that fed 200 homeless at her "reception"?

  • Cool then. I remember seeing something recently about a jilted bride, in NY or NJ, who invited 200 homeless to her "reception", and that her family was going to start doing it every year.

  • "Out thousands of dollars and with contractual commitments with various wedding services, Michelle decided to turn the negative into a positive by donating what she had planned for her wedding. The beneficiaries of Michelle’s generosity were those at Creative Care for Reaching Independence (CCRI), a non-profit that empowers those with disabilities. Jody Hudson of CCRI said, "I was speechless…Actually the next day I called her to make sure it was for real." The organization plans to throw a Halloween party for their clients in the crystal ballroom all thanks to Michelle. "It kind of changes you. You know, I feel like I'm trying. This is helping me heal. Giving to some people that you know what is supposed to be my special day, now can turn into their special day," said Michelle.


    ^^^Nope, not the homeless, an organization for people with disabilities :)
