To Pay or Not to Pay? 🤷‍♀️

This bride found herself in a dessert dilemma after her friend Marissa and her husband Chris set up a dessert station at her wedding, only to bill her $1500 after the fact. With no prior mention of payment or a contract, the bride assumed the dessert station was a gift and a chance for exposure for their new business. Despite her husband's willingness to pay and move on, the bride stood her ground, refusing to pay for what she believed was a manipulative move. The friendship ultimately crumbled, leaving us to wonder: was she right to refuse payment? Let's see what the internet has to say about this sweet and sour situation... 🍬🍋
