A lot of people are having a hard time managing emotions and sorting things up right after a broken relationship, but this woman is not one of them.
The bride-to-be, Kolbie Sanders broke off her engagement just one week before the wedding event scheduled on October 20, at the Bellevue Wedding and Event Venue in Tyler, Texas.
She took the announcement to Facebook and Kolbie actually posted on how she wanted to let another couple make use of her venue on Facebook. Not wanting for the venue valued at $3,500 to go to waste, she’s looking for a new couple to fill it in.
*Huge announcement*With my engagement ending, I’ve come to find tremendous peace in knowing that I did the right thing…
But there’s one problem, she only had 24 hours to find the couple and they would have to agree to the same wedding date, October 20.
“I have partnered with the venue, and they are on board with this decision, and we are both excited to see if we can help a couple in need of making their wedding that much more beautiful with a free venue.
I figured the best way for this to work is everyone to share this post so that it reaches a higher audience,” write Kolbie in her now viral announcement.
The Facebook post has instantly drawn hundreds of comments from people praising her generosity whilst dropping some possible couple’s names. Kolbie also asked the participating couple to share their backstories with her. She later appeared in a Facebook Live video, was seen randomly choosing strangers’ names out of a bowl.

She pulled one out and held up the card reading ‘Halie Hipster’. Kolbie shared that she wrote Halie’s name after finding out that her grandfather was fighting with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and didn’t know if he’d make it for her wedding next fall.
“I was in shock. As soon as my sister called me I was like, ‘All right, this is real, this is my name’,” said Halie as she needed to calm herself down.
Went today to check out the venue!! It is so beautiful, and thank you so much for helping get a wedding coordinator to…
Turned out, Kolbie ended up going to the venue on her wedding date, but as a guest! “You can end up changing the outcome of someone’s entire life when you stop caring about the outcome of your own,” Kolbie wrote on her Facebook.
These 3 people are the reason why good things come from making good decisions in good faith. This is why everyone should…
It’s a good way to not let the venue go to waste!
