This jilted bride turned her wedding into a feast for the homeless

Turning a heartbreaking situation into something positive.

WELL, HERE’S ONE way to make the best of an absolutely heartbreaking situation.

California woman Kari Duane’s oldest daughter, Quinn, was due to get married on Saturday – but a week before the wedding, she rang her mother to tell her that the groom had called it off.

KCRA reports that the deposits for the $35,000 wedding were already paid, and non-refundable.

So Kari decided to give the wedding feast to the homeless people of Sacramento instead – according to Buzzfeed, as many as 90 guests were served a four-star meal, which included salmon and steak.

One of the guests, Rashad Abdullah, brought his wife and five children, and said the meal was a “blessing”.

When you’re going through a hard time and [it's] a struggle for you to get out and do something different with your family, it was really a blessing.

The non-refundable flowers from the wedding were donated to a local nursing home, and Kari and Quinn will turn the honeymoon into a mother-daughter holiday.

The bride-to-be found it too painful to attend the party, but her mother (pictured above) was happy they could make something positive out of a terrible situation.

I feel a lot of heartache and heartbreak for her, but I will take something good from this, I will.
