Picture spending months organizing your wedding day, only to arrive at the venue to find that the most important part is missing: the groom. The level of heartbreak and embarrassment is hard to imagine, but one woman from the U.S. knows exactly what it feels like.
Just a few years ago, Dee was engaged to be married to a man called Danny. The couple had only been together for a few months when they decided to get hitched. Then, only about a year into their relationship, the wedding was just around the corner.
Everything was ready for the big day, down to the very last details. The venue was booked, the food and drinks were ordered and the DJ was confirmed. The bride-to-be had found the perfect dress, and the wedding cake was having the final bits of icing applied.
