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!

Where did you spend and save for your wedding? Let us know in the comments!

  • Wow! That;s awful and to be charged only $50 is a disgrace.


  • No ethics there and only a $50 trespass! How about theft? Even if they thought flowers was nothing what about the pots for heavens sakes.


  • The venue you have a wedding at can save you some money. Bridesmaids brought there own dresses to help save costs.


  • Wow, how rude and ridiculous she was only charged with trespassing. She should’ve been charged with theft too. She should’ve had to pay for the pots and flowers too.


  • oh no this is terrible


  • OMG, she even stole the pots! How lucky a neighbour was at the wedding to alert the gardener. If the bride had asked first, but to steal them us not on


  • Such a pity that the PC brigade didn’t organise a shame against her – this is just not on to steal from others.


  • Wow that’s just awful


  • This is poor form and such bad behaviour. I recently had a courier steal some roses from my front garden. When I confronted him, he didn’t even apologise, acting like it was nothing. When you are on someone else’s property show some decency and ask.


  • OMG, how rude? What about loving the flowers and perhaps asking the owners and maybe paying them something. Sadly, nothing surprises me these days. How sad.


  • A few years ago, a young boy knocked on my Grandma’s door, asking if he might be allowed some cut flowers for his mum for Mothers Day. Grandma was thrilled and only too happy to help. Common courtesy says you ask permission, pleases and thankyous go great distances. Disgusted to read the bride wasn’t the least bit remorseful. I hope the lady had her pots returned.


  • I can’t believe she was only fined $50 for stealing all of those flowers. If she could do this and not see a problem then I wouldn’t trust her with anything. Why couldn’t she ask people to donate some. We saved money on our wedding by having the reception at my MIL house.


  • Good grief. It’s acts like these that make me despair for the future.


  • If this is what “human nature” is becoming i seriously regret having children!
    How dare this bride trespass onto a property and take what she “needed” for a wedding!
    What if a loved ones ashes were buried under that particular rose? Or that pot you took was an emotionally priceless heirloom???
    If there was a whole garden full of “what you needed” why not be respectful and ask the owner if there is any chance of using some of her beautiful blooms and borrowing some pots? Im sure the owner would have been flattered and happy to help you out, probably for around the same price of your trespassing fine.
    Life IS NOT SOCIAL MEDIA! We can’t act in the real world like in a video game.
    Show honesty, courtesy and respect and the world might stand a chance


  • I think she would have been better off having no flowers at all.
