Disastrous Weddings
Friday July 20, 2001

It was a storybook beginning. But Felicia and Ricky Lehr stopped smiling when the big day arrived.

Felicia says, “You should not have these kind of memories of your wedding day. The cake was wrong, the invitations were wrong, the flowers were wrong."


Mother, Lynn Manuel is griping too about what the proud parents got for their sixteen grand and what she believes some of her one hundred thirty guests got. She says, “People reported cramping, diarrhea and vomiting."

According to the report, food poisoning is part of the lawsuit just filed by the unhappy couple to get their money back. At least 20 percent of the guests interviewed by the county health department got sick.

• Consider hiring a professional Wedding Coordinator

• Discuss the budget and who will pay for what AHEAD of time

• Make arrangements with the officiator and reserve the wedding and reception locations well ahead of time

• Meet with the florist, photographer, caterer, videographer, DJ and other
outside vendors well in advance to discuss budget and options

• Buy a wedding planner and envelopes to store brochures and notes. Develop
a record keeping system for invitations, gifts, thank you notes, etc.

ORGANIZATION is key.

Lynn says, "They suspect the salad dressing.”

So who is to blame for such a mess?

Bonnie and Gary Luther, co-owners of the Christian wedding planning center.

Bonnie says, "I have nothing to say to you."

But Luther had plenty to say. He claimed to know nothing about the lawsuit and defended his right to keep the Lehr's pictures and videotape until the dispute is settled. He says, "We're twenty-six years in business, we're not just off the turnip truck."

No, they're not. In fact there have been so many customer complaints that the better business bureau rates the company as "unsatisfactory."

Extra asks, "So in twenty-six years, you guys have never made any mistakes?

Gary says, “Mistakes? I am done talking to you."

Felicia and Ricky think they made a big mistake and hope others can learn from their experience. Felicia says, "I really don't want this to happen to anybody else."
