Bride Calls Off Wedding, Invites Homeless Instead

Indiana woman calls off $30K wedding invites homeless to reception Sarah Cummins

When 25-year-old Sarah Cummins called off her wedding with her fiancé Logan Araujo, she made a decision to do something about it.

American woman Sarah Cummins from IN told the Indianapolis Star she cancelled the wedding a week ago, but declined to give a reason.

Cummins, who didn't say why she cancelled the wedding, was left with a nonrefundable contract for the venue as well as a prepaid dinner for guests - a $30,000 value that she couldn't bear to see go to waste. However, the 25-year-old #Bride-to-be was heartbroken when deciding to call off the #Wedding a week before it was supposed to happen on Saturday. "I called everyone, cancelled, apologised, cried, called vendors, cried some more, and then I started feeling really sick about just throwing away all the food I ordered for the reception", she told USA Today.

Ms Cummings rang up the local homeless shelters in Indianapolis and Noblesville to invite residents to the party.

Sarah Cummins and her fiancé called off their marriage a week out from the big day.

She told the Indy Star she was unable to get a refund from the venue, who were expecting her and her one-time fiance along with 170 guests for an evening of fine foods, wine and dancing.

Everything will be the same as it would have been had the wedding not been canceled, Cummins said, except there will be no head table for the bridal party, no cake table and no gift table.

It was clear that the Toronto, New York and London crowd drew more people that supported McGregor. McGregor, who had a microphone of his own, shouted, " Dance for me, boy! ".

The dinner will take place in the garden pavilion.

According to the Indianapolis Star bourbon-glazed meatballs, goat cheese and roasted garlic bruschetta, chicken breast with artichokes and Chardonnay cream sauce are also on the menu. For dessert, there's wedding cake, of course.

If she can hold her tears back, Cummins is planning on staying for the dinner with her mum and bridesmaids.

After the dinner, she will jet off to the Dominican Republic alone for what would have been her honeymoon.

But with hopes of 150 homeless people attending, Cummins said she will "at least have some kind of happy memory to pull from" on what she once thought would be her wedding night.

The bride said she was touched by how much effort family and friends had put into helping her organise a flawless wedding. I'm nervous, but I feel like it will be really good strength building for me.
