This HAS to be a scam. Otherwise the story is just too sad for words. Who would "surprise" their bride with a cake and wedding planner? ("Will you marry me... next month? By the way, I hope you don't mind that I took the initiative to order you a cake and book a wedding planner...")
The short lead time and broken English sound all-too familiar from previous scams. What "advert?" And I don't understand the disconnect between the "from" name in the header and the name in the email.
On the plus side, he did spell "inquiry" right, and there is no initial mention of a credit card. BEWARE!
