Wedding calligrapher throws away work after bride refuses to pay 💔
An 18-year-old wedding invitation calligrapher shared her experience of throwing away her hard work after her brother's wife refused to pay. Despite being a broke student, the girl agreed to do the invitations for her brother's 200+ person wedding as a gift. However, things turned sour when the bride picked the most expensive stationary and designs and refused to pay for the calligrapher's time and materials. Hurt and frustrated, the calligrapher ultimately threw away all of the invitations she had made. While the girl's mother supported her, her brother was neutral and just wanted her to apologize to keep the peace. The post has sparked a debate about the value of artistic work and the importance of fair compensation. Check out the comments section to see what others are saying.
