Weddings are often considered the happiest days in a person’s life, filled with love, joy, and the promise of a beautiful future.
However, what was supposed to be a happy day for a bride in Indonesia turned out to be a day full of embarrassment and unexpected twists.
On August 29, in Obi Islands, Indonesia, a groom got cold feet and made a hasty exit from his wedding ceremony, leaving his bride standing alone at the altar. What happened next was nothing short of astonishing.
A Father’s Unexpected Role
As the groom fled, the bride was left in a state of shock and disbelief. But amidst the chaos and confusion, her groom’s father stepped forward to fill the void left by his son’s sudden departure, according to Tribun News.
In a turn of events that no one could have predicted, the bride found herself getting solemnized with her would-be father-in-law.
It was a moment of sheer perplexity, and it left the entire wedding party and guests in disbelief.
A Costly Affair
The bride’s family had spared no expense for this momentous occasion. They had poured approximately 25 million rupiahs (equivalent to S$2,225) into the wedding preparations, with high hopes for a beautiful and memorable day. Little did they know that this day would take such an unexpected turn.
Prior to the wedding, it had become apparent that there were underlying issues in the relationship between the bride and the original groom.
Mediation and Uncertainty
In an attempt to address the issues, a mediation session involving the police had taken place. During this session, the groom expressed his willingness to marry her. This declaration only added to the confusion surrounding his sudden departure from the wedding ceremony.
The family of the bride now finds themselves in a state of uncertainty. They are faced with the dilemma of how to proceed following this shocking turn of events. Whether or not they should involve the police again remains a decision they have yet to make.
