Wedding Cake Catastrophe - Page 2

post #16 of 84
and I would be contacting a lawyer to sue her in civil court for damages to include total cost of cake as well as a replacement for the anniversary.

far to easy anymore for people to just blow off "requests", "demands," and "strongly worded letters."

a lawsuit they cannot dismiss.

and do be sure to check about getting photos of the woman in action and of the results.

so sorry a wonderful day had to have this happen on it.

I would send the a bill to the drunk for the cost of the cake plus for the replacement of the top tier. Was she trying to ruin the cake because of a past issue with the bride/groom. Ex girlfriend?

I'm gonna have to disagree with the majority and agree with kriskreations.

I would just ask Susan to make another topper and pay for it myself. I know TOO many marriages that have broken up or lead to worse because in-laws fight with each over the dumbest things. Yes, the chic was completely wrong and the MOG was wrong to not do anything, but if the MOG didn't so anything at the time, why would you expect her to do anything now?

Andchances are that neither the MOG or the drunk chic are gonna want to pay, so you'll either end up paying or with MASSIVE headaches.

Basically, I think there are certain people/things worth fighting with/for and others not. Plus, if you got the cake I am sure it would be much more special/meaningful to your daughter because YOU got it for it.

Before you get say anything to the MOG about her friend, I would ask for copies of all the pictures taken. That way the ones of Drunken Slob don't convently get lost. Documentation....as Indi says. Proof is in the before and after pictures.
You have not said anything about the groom. If he backs up Drunken Slob then it is not worth the price of cake to put that kind of strain on the newlyweds. If he backs up his bride(if he is smart he will) then the price of the whole cake and new top should be payed by Slob.

Send her a bill for the cake and the replacement tier with a letter explaining why she owes the money and that you will take her to small claims court if she does not pay. (This matter would not be allowed in a civil courtroom - in the eyes of the law the amount would be too petty).

And if she gives you the drunk excuse remind her that being drunk is not an excuse in the eyes of the law, you are still liable for the actions you perform while you are intoxicated unless you are involuntarily intoxicated, which means someone would have to tie you up and force you to drink until you get drunk - not likely!

What a totally inappropriate way to act. I can't even believe this is for real.

I agree that "being drunk" is no excuse and it is not "cute" behavior. I'd send her the bill.

Send her a bill for the cake. The whole purpose of having the cake at the wedding (serving to the guests) was defeated by her unruly and drunken behaviour. The guests refused to partake of the cake because she made a play dough of it. I say send her a bill immediately!!!

UGH this is one of the reasons why I hate alchol. It changes people's behavior (usually for the worst).
Drunks are so stupid!

I seriouly doubt you're going to get the drunk or the MOG to pay for the topper so you're probably going to have to pay for the 2nd one if you want your daughter to have it for her 1st ann.

((((((hugs))))))

I would send the drunk a bill for the entire cake, but leave the MIL out of it (except to ask for the pics). I also wouldn't ask for extra for the top tier as that cost would be included in the bill for the entire cake.

I hope you get this sorted out!

I agree with Doug, this is a case for small claims/civil court. This is a serious issue. Destruction of property.

If I was the bride, that woman would have gotten it!
post #27 of 84
Well, just my opinion, but the best thing you could do, is get the pictures of her ruining the cake..... send a copy directly to her with a very strongly worded letter stating that you hope she is proud of herself for ruining the reception, and the $ XXX.XX cake, which could not be served after she had PAWED her unsanitary hands through each and every last piece........and tell her you now need to replace the top tier so that they will have their "anniversary cake"..... Let her actually SEE what she did.... otherwise, she either won't remember, or will just make a joke out of it..... at this point, she doesn't even know she hurt someone.....

Leave MOG out of it. She may have invited the person but she is not her sister's keeper.

I'm with Doug. Have your attorney send her a letter. Trust me, I''ve been there (not with a wedding but with a personal matter). Let's just say an "EX" in-law does not mess with me anymore because all that had to happen was her to see a letter in her mailbox with a return address that included the words "Attorney at Law".

If it was my daughter's wedding that was ruined..... first, I think y'all an imagine how unashamed I would be to pull that wench outside by the hair on her head and kick her sorry a$$ to the curb! Second, it would be worth every penny that I would pay my attorney to get this chic to see that it was NOT funny, that it was NOT acceptable, and no one thought it was CUTE!

There are repercussions for actions and this troll needs to learn that!

Oh yeah! I agree with deuter and gramma_j...she may not even know that she destroyed it! Or if you get the word around before getting the pics she could deny it. Anyway...get the pics first and then settle this! I agree with Doug too! This is a lawsuit if this woman doesn't pay for the cake and the new topper. She DESTROYED the cake and no one was able to eat it!

Good luck with this one. Really think things through before you take any action.
