A day that suppose to be a day of joy and look at what has happened to me. You must pay me back my money. You cannot deliver on the money I paid to you. Can you imagine the amount of money I paid but what I have received today is insult. This Hotel has messed me up. They have turned down my wedding. Where is the management? They must pay for this mess. I cannot take this rubbish.”
