Daughter claims she ruined her dad’s surprise wedding after being the last to know about it

A Reddit user has admitted to ruining her dad’s “surprise” wedding after learning about the ceremony 30 minutes before it started. 

The daughter, with the username throglo, posted about the moment on Reddit’s “Am I the A–h—” forum last week, explaining that her parents are divorced and do not get along — though they do have joint custody. 

She explained that one day in January when her dad picked her up to spend a week with him, he told her they were going to drive an hour away to his friend’s house “for a surprise party.”

But once they arrived at an event hall, the Reddit user said her dad informed her that it was actually his wedding. He also told her that she was one of the bridesmaids and had to hurry inside so she could get ready, because the ceremony was set to start in 30 minutes.

Will Meetings And Events Ever Be The Same? 41 Clever Things Hotels Are Doing To Keep Them Safe

The meeting and wedding planning industries have been rocked during the Covid-19 pandemic, and they may continue to feel the effects for years to come. While online alternatives like Zoom will put a dent into the events business, many hotels are staying laser-focused on recovery even if the path forward presents unusual challenges.

Over the past several months, hotels have proven they can conduct successful conferences and weddings while navigating local (and oft-changing) coronavirus safety guidelines.

David Sacco, director of event management for Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center near Denver, says there’s pent-up demand, and Gaylord properties have already hosted several events from two dozen to 2,000 attendees safely and effectively.

The pandemic pivot is a stark reality for droves of older small business owners resolute to stay in business.

That kind of grit is the spine of the midlife entrepreneurs I’ve interviewed in recent years, several of whom I profiled in my book: “Never Too Old to Get Rich: The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Starting a Business Mid-Life.” (Full disclosure: Next Avenue is the co-publisher.)

I talked with four pandemic pivoters to find out what they’ve done, what they’re doing and how it’s going:

For Jo-Ann Barett, owner of the Aromas Boutique Bakery in Harlem known for its singular custom cakes and catering, the on-off switch flipped in what felt like a blink of an eye.

“At the beginning of March, we had one hundred percent cancellations — mostly large wedding and graduation cakes,” Barett said. “Giving refunds was terrifying. We didn’t have to, but we recognized the situation

“I find that I will often say I’m done with a piece and step away from it just to come back and add more details,” she said.

Customers tell Wright how much they love the uniqueness of her creations.
