I often wonder how many wedding invitations are ordered and never used. I also had the experience of actually receiving a wedding invitation on a Tuesday and the wedding was called off on Thursday of the same week. It sets you off to trying to decipher what could have changed the mind of one or the other to make such a drastic decision. I think about the parents and families of the couple and the complications that follow. The only saving grace would be if they could at least recover the deposits for the church, the reception hall, the flowers etc. I know there had to be some heavy duty emotions involved.
