Sometimes, wedding dreams turn into nightmares through no fault of the newlywed couple.

Recently, a wedding planner was accused of cheating the clients.

The bride, Nurul Norafiza Abdul Hamed, 25, re-counted the ‘tragedy’ during her wedding day when food for guests was almost non-existent.

In a 32-second video uploaded to TikTok, she revealed being cheated by the wedding planner when she only received food for 50 people out of their total orders of 700.

In the end, the guests had to order food on their own.

She Trusted The Wedding Planner

Nurul Norafiza was quoted by mStar saying that a full payment of RM18,250 was made to the individual who offered the wedding package.

The day of happiness turned into sadness, it’s the saddest tragedy for my family and I on 4 June, 2022. I never thought it could be like this, when it happened before my eyes, the crying did not stop.

Not only that, but the PA system (sound system) also did not arrive for the wedding ceremony which was held in Taman Cahaya Masai in Pasir Gudang, Johor.

She said a police report had been lodged at the Larkin police station.

Meanwhile, she also discovered other couples had also been scammed by the same wedding planner.

Some of them had their wedding on the same day as her, and they did not get any food at all.

Nurul Norafiza said she engaged the wedding planner through Facebook.

Netizens Offer Sympathy And Advice

Meanwhile, the public expressed their sympathy and pray that the couple would continue to persevere with the trials faced during their special ceremony.

Netizens said wedding packages at prices that are too good to be true should be double-checked.

At the same time, some said that the culprit is the wedding planner which had recently been arrested by police.

Warning Signs And How To Protect

A legitimate wedding planner will not ask you to deposit money in their bank accounts. Those who do will provide you with receipts.

A legitimate wedding planner will also not ask you to pay in full before the event.

Couples must only pay the remaining amount of the package on the day of the event.

Five signs a wedding vendor is legit:

  • Glowing recommendations.
  • A license and insurance.
  • A professional portfolio.
  • Professional accreditations and memberships.
  • A great gut feeling.
