The brazen bride ransacked a local garden to gather free wedding flowers for her reception…
A bride has been caught stealing from a private garden in an attempt to save money on her wedding flowers ninehoney reports.
The owner of the house and garden said that she was horrified when she woke up and discovered a number of expensive and rare flowers had been severed from her plants.
A Step Too Far
Sharing her story on Facebook, the gardener said that every rose in her garden had been taken as well as a number of other plants and pots.
“All I could do was prune the roses back and try to coax them into blooming again,” the woman wrote on Facebook.
It wasn’t until weeks later that an observant neighbour noticed that a wedding she had attended featured flowers suspiciously similar to those stolen from the garden.
“The tip-off was the petunias and impatiens in my very distinctive, white painted flowerpots being used as centrepieces,” she said.
Piece By Piece
As the woman listened to her neighbour, she began to piece together exactly what had happened to her garden.
“The bride apparently passed my house and saw my bloomed up garden,” she said. “(She) went out a couple of days before the wedding and cut all of my roses and took pots to use for her wedding.”
Despite her brazen behaviour, the bride was only handed a $50 trespassing charge and expressed no remorse for her actions.
“They’re just flowers. I needed flowers for my wedding and you have a whole yard full,” she said.
We can’t believe this bride’s total lack of concern or consideration for the garden owner. If you can’t afford flowers for your wedding, find other ways to decorate your venue!
