I had a cake tasting with a lovely couple last year and they booked me there and then. Since then I've chatted to the bride a couple of times as some design elements changed. She was always this upbeat, bubbly person. I spoke to the wedding co-ordinator a couple of weeks ago when she delivered samples of the new colors. This was going to be a massive black tie event and apparently the families was sooo looking forward to the event.

Well this morning I got a email for the co-ordinator, the wedding is cancelled because yesterday the couple commited suicide!!!!! icon_surprised.gif

Im feeling sooo sick, they were such a lovely couple and looked so in love icon_cry.gif Im supposed to start on this week's cake, but I just feel so down and not able to even turn on my mixer today!

Oh how dreadfully sad for everyone concerned - icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif
No wonder you can't turn your mixer on - you must be feeling absolutely guttered. The shock of it all - icon_sad.gif
Words are just empty characters at a time like this - but i do hope some reason will be forth coming - even then - the shock will last forever with everyone.

So dreadfully sorry to hear of the news.

My heart just did one of those little stutters. How horrible. That poor family and what they must be going thru. That is just an awful thing to do to your loved ones.

My cousin committed suicide (hung himself), left his family (2 beautiful kids and wife) wondering what went wrong. IMHO that is one of the most selfish things a person could ever do.

I really feel sorry for their families.

So sorry to hear this. I, too, know of suicide in family. My uncle shot himself in the head, too much medicines, and then his son commited suicide the same way with a gun his mom had gotten him for Christmas 2 weeks earlier. Maybe you need to turn on your mixer to get your mind onto something else. I'm sure your heart is broken, but i can't picture that bride wanting you to grieve and not live your own life. Sending hugs your way.

That was one of the MOST SHOCKING things I have ever read on CC.

I was expecting you to say that she went bridezilla - I gasped and read the other posts with my mouth hanging open in shock!

I also didn't know them but I am finding it hard to fight back tears. I feel so terrible for their families!

That is terrible. My heart goes out to their friends and families. You put so much time and effort into planning a happy occasion, and then the unthinkable happens. So sad. Take a little time for yourself and have a good cry. The cake can wait. *Hug*

Thanks for the support I suppose its a little silly to be so upset about people that I really didnt know, but I keep thinking about how happy they seemed to be and how excited they were about the wedding. Its really true that you cant judge on appearances and that you cant imagine what others are going through.

well I finally managed to bake the cakes, so at least Friday's bride will have a wedding cake icon_smile.gif

It is not silly at all! Things like this always get to people...we are all upset over this and we didn't even meet the bride and groom! It just goes to show how much you care about your clients and making their day special, and I am sure that this comes through in your work. I am glad you were able the cakes for Friday icon_smile.gif

I think just as a human being with feelings, you have to feel something in reaction to a tragedy like this. I get emotional over little things too sometimes, (cripes I just got teary eyed over the new OnStar commercial on the radio today) although it seems to happen more one week out of the month, and its completely normal to feel remorse over a couple committing suicide. Especially when you dont know all the details, and it leaves you wondering why a young couple, who seems to have it all, feels like they have no other option but to kill themselves. My heart goes out to all of their friends and family members.

Dont tear yourself up over it, but do hug your hubby, your kids, your mom and tell them that you love them and make sure that they know that they matter to you. I dont think we express that enough to people in our daily lives.
