A Couple Canceled Their $350,000 Wedding After A Fight At Their Rehearsal Dinner

Isn’t love grand?

A couple called off their $350,000 wedding after their family brawled at the rehearsal dinner — and now the bride's family is suing to recoup the costs.

A couple called off their $350,000 wedding after their family brawled at the rehearsal dinner — and now the bride's family is suing to recoup the costs.

Facebook

However, the relationship ended with a bang at the couple's rehearsal dinner the night before.

The trouble began when Amy Bzura's brother, Adam Bzura, asked to speak at the dinner. This allegedly incensed the groom's father, Robert Moss, the newspaper reported.

According to a lawsuit filed by Bzura's father, Bruce, the argument culminated in the groom-to-be's brother punching the bride-to-be's brother in the face.

Robert Moss, the groom's father, also tried to attack Adam Bzura, but was restrained, according to the lawsuit.

"The rehearsal dinner ended in shouting and tears," the lawsuit states.

Robert Moss then allegedly called off the wedding, and told his son if he got married anyway he would cut him out of his will. This "effectively destroyed the bride and groom's relationship for good," the lawsuit states.

Bruce Bzura states that he was on the hook for almost all of the wedding's expenses.

The one exception was that Brad Moss's parents, Robert Moss and his ex-wife, Wendy Moss, had agreed to cover about $90,000 for some guests they had asked to invite.

Bruce Bzura claims that not only did he have to pay for the wedding in advance, he never got the money he was promised.

In her emotional speech after winning Album of the Year — the Grammy Awards' top honor — Adele stunned the audience by saying she "couldn't possibly accept this award" and it should've gone to Beyoncé.

"I can't possibly accept this award," she said. "And I'm very humbled and very grateful and gracious but the artist of my life is Beyoncé, and the album to me, the Lemonade album, Beyoncé, was so monumental, and so well thought out. And so beautiful and soul bearing and we all got to see another side of you that you don't always let us see, and we appreciate that.

"And all us artists adore you. You are our light. And the way that you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering, and you make them stand up for themselves. And I love you. I always have. And I always will."
