A bride-to-be who was dumped by her fiancé when she was dressed in her veil and wedding gown an hour before their scheduled exchange of vows has penned a letter detailing her heartbreak.

Cyndi Maisonneuve says she was “blindsided” when her fiancé broke things off as the guests waited on a beach in Hawaii – the wedding venue.

In her letter to The Guardian, Cyndi says: “He came into the room and said we needed to talk alone. He was crying. I assumed he was letting the emotion of the day get to him.”

“Then he said it. ‘I don’t think I can do this,’” wrote Cyndi.

She added: “I stood there – with the veil already in my hair.

“This man who was supposed to be the love of my life was telling me he was calling off the wedding less than an hour before we were due on the beach.”

Cyndi went ahead to divulge: “I didn’t even ask why. I told him to leave.”

In the letter, Cyndi spoke out about the man she considered her best friend; the one she was about to marry after two years of dating.

She described his fiancé as a man who was love-struck, saying that when he proposed six months after they had met, it did not feel too soon.

Cyndi writes: “I was 23 and it felt as if life was coming together. People would say how good we were as a match. But somehow everything went wrong.”

“I had to watch from the window as my sister went to the beach and let everyone know,” she said.

“While I’d been out that morning, he had taken all his clothes and passport. He’d actually left me.

“I was heartbroken.”

Cyndi had to stay at the holiday resort for a week, bumping into her ex-fiancée who also stayed on the island, reveals The Guardian.

She describes how she tried to keep her days busy by engaging in different activities; just to stop thinking about her sad ordeal.

She also tried to exhaust her mind and body during the day so that she could at least get some sleep during the night.

The distraught woman narrated: “The reason he gave for calling it off was that he didn’t want children and I did. He never said why that became an irresolvable issue only on the day itself. Eventually we lost touch.”
