I know there is and will always be intentional evil in this world. But when it hits close to home, it takes on a whole new meaning.
My beautiful niece and nephew in law were married on Saturday. It was truly a picture perfect day.
Little did we know evil intentions were to take place at their reception.
A "couple" (alleged thieves) dressed for the wedding reception arrived. Their intent was to steal the wedding cards. Period. As you well know, wedding cards are filled with cash for the new bride and groom.
As the DJ announced the wedding party, this "couple" or as I like to refer to them as POS grabbed what they could out of the wedding card box and left.
Not only did they get the money my sweet hubs and I gave, but the money from many other generous family members, too. This happened to another couple who were also married on Saturday but their reception was at a different location. Obviously these POS know what they're doing.
Thankfully, they are on video surveillance and the police are involved. Please pray and/or send positive thoughts that these criminals are caught.
I do not want to see this happen to another young couple celebrating their new beginning together with family and friends.
So PLEASE... if you have a grandchild, child or even you yourself are getting married be sure your gift/money box table is in the banquet area next to the bridal party table or somewhere very visible.
Also have a trusted family member or close friend be in charge of making sure that table and box are secure at all times.
Finally make sure whatever businesses hired, whether it be your videographer, photographer, cake maker whatever... Insist these businesses do not post on their Facebook page your name, the date of your wedding and the reception venue. (Unfortunately, not all reception venues have security cameras)
As much as the businesses want to advertise and you want to share the big day with everyone, intentional evil pieces of sh*t lurks around us. Preying on good, unsuspecting people.
Like I said, I don't want to see this happen to another couple.
