Love is a many-splendored thing. Especially when it comes to costing an arm and a leg, says one Chicago bride. She spent almost $100,000 for her big day, only to be left at the altar with a handful of bills. So what does she do? She sues the groom. Here are some of the costs that the bride claims she spent:

Expenses included $30,000 to reserve a suburban banquet hall, more than $11,000 on flowers and lighting, $10,000 for an orchestra to perform at the festivities, a $5,000 wedding gown and $600 for wedding shoes, the suit states. She also spent $70.40 to send cancellation notices.

So here are the details of what happened. The groom went to his bachelor party a month before the wedding and apparently had too good of a time with the pole dancing females. In the court documents his actions are described as “flirtatious and amorous acts in public,” along with a few other descriptions of lap dancing and assorted lewd acts.

But the reason the bridegroom decided to cancel the event was because of a business trip he had made one year before.

The bride is suing for emotional distress and because his behavior “went beyond the bounds of decency,” the suit claims.

What is hard to believe is that these two love birds dated for three years before deciding to tie the knot.

I am sure there is more to this than what we are being told. It should make for an interesting court case if and when it comes to trial.

Comments welcome.
