It is common knowledge that a number of ladies cannot wait to get married to the love of their lives as they look forward to the big day. However, a big event such as a wedding can be cancelled at the last moment despite elaborate preparations.
Briefly.co.za gathered reports that a wedding was cancelled just a few hours to its commencement by the father of the bride.
The sad occurrence which reportedly took place on November 3, 2018, at Ibadan, Oyo state caused a lot of confusion.
The groom, Tunji Curtis, explained that he and his wife-to-be, Oluwaseun Adugbe, had no prior issues and he was surprised that his father-in-law would take such a drastic decision.
“This is shocking. I don’t believe this is truly happening, because my wife and I had no issues at all and I can’t remember having any issue with her father. In fact, I sent money to her father last week Thursday as part of my contributions towards the wedding.”
Oluwaseun’s father reportedly cancelled the wedding because the groom had failed to honour a meeting he had called for on Friday, November 2, a day to the wedding.
Speaking to Sunday Tribune, the distraught groom explained that he missed the meeting because he was busy making sure things went smoothly for the wedding.
“I asked my father in-law what went wrong; he told me that I failed to honour a meeting yesterday. I tried to explain to him that I was extremely busy making sure that everything was in place so that we could have a smooth celebration.”
The groom's sister, identified as Abibat, who had traveled to the venue with a number of friends, expressed her disappointment at how things turned out.
"You can imagine the excuse that they gave for the cancellation of the wedding. I have never seen any family that is as irresponsible as this. I don’t blame them; I blame our son, who took the wrong step. The wedding is over and we will be going back to Lagos anytime from now."
