Nearly every woman dreams of the day they will get to walk down the aisle in a puffy, white dress and finally say “I do” to the man of their life.
However, all ladies dread being stood up at the altar by a man who could not bother to call it quits before their wedding day.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Jenny Mutale, a Ugandan lady, told SparkTV she was excited to finally tie the knot with the love of her life on February 25.
She even went to the salon and got her groove on, then proceeded to hop into her convoy as she travelled to the wedding venue.

However, Jane’s heart sunk when she learnt the man she had prepared for so long to get married to failed to show up at the church.
“I got a phone call that the groom was not yet at the church but I had to go to church to prove it and find a way out,” she said
Despite this, she wore a false sense of hope and continued her journey to the church, praying that maybe the caller had made a mistake.
When Jane and her bridesmaids arrived at the venue, the group discovered her husband-to-be was nowhere to be seen.
The first thing that popped in the bride’s mind was to call the man she thought she loved. But, all his phones were switched off.
“Having faith in God helped me a lot, I just had to pray to God to give me strength and courage that I can pass through such a trial,” she added.
After getting control of her emotions, Jane and her guests chose to have a church service then proceeded to the reception.
They ate, drunk, made merry and forgot for a while she had been stood up on one of the most important days of her life.
