Weddings are stressful and expensive. So it’s pretty normal to jump at every opportunity to cut down some costs for THE day. But is it justifiable at somebody’s expense? There’s something about weddings that can sometimes make us do pretty crazy things, borderline on losing sanity. Here we are talking about a bride who broke into her neighbor’s garden and stole rare flowers to use as decorations for her wedding.
You could imagine the neighbor’s fury, a keen gardener, when she found out that every flower from her garden had been chopped off, including lilies, tulips, daisies, peonies and a rare 165 Euro rose plant which had taken the woman years to track down. Definitely not a good way to start a day.
The distressed woman revealed, “I walked into my yard on a Friday morning to find every single rose in my garden cut and my potted impatiens and petunias gone, pots and all. Naturally I was devastated. My roses were butchered. Including my extremely rare Amelia Earhart tea that took me three years to track down”.
Confused she went to the police but there was little they could do. However, a friend of her pointed out that she had seen similar flowers in the wedding photos of the victim’s neighbor. When her friend showed her the pictures, she knew right away that those were her flowers.
Including the table decorations, the woman also noticed that her hybrid roses were used in the bride and bridesmaids bouquets. The little doubt she had also faded as she’s the only person who grows such flowers in the area.
She further added, “This bride apparently passed by my house and saw my bloomed up garden and went out in the cover of darkness a couple of days before the wedding and cut all of my roses and took pots to use for her wedding”.
Now with evidence, the woman reported to the police again but the bride was fined with only a 27 Euro fine, in spite of stealing a 163 Euro bush. And if that wasn’t enough, when the woman confronted the bride, she had apparently no remorse for her misdoings and said instead, “They’re just flowers. I needed flowers for my wedding and you have a whole yard full”. Well does that justify butchering someone’s prized possessions?
