Billionaire Nelson Peltz Sues Wedding Planner Over VIP List

In April of last year, Brooklyn Beckham and Nicole Peltz exchanged their vows in a grand ceremony in Palm Beach. However, the drama surrounding their wedding refuses to subside, as new documents reveal a lawsuit filed by Nicole's father, billionaire Nelson Peltz, against one of the three wedding planners who was hired to orchestrate the event.

Plan Design Events Accused of Overselling Abilities

According to the lawsuit, Nelson Peltz is suing Miami-based Plan Design Events, owned by Nicole Braghin and Arianna Grijalba, for allegedly failing to meet a list of expectations and requirements for VIP guests attending the wedding, and for refusing to return the $159,000 deposit.

The Peltz family claims that the owners of Plan Design Events have exaggerated their abilities in terms of their experience, expertise, and ability to plan the wedding. "During their nine days of negotiations, PDE failed to book a single new wedding vendor, failed to finalize the terms of any agreements with any of the vendors that had previously been selected by Peltz and his family, and failed to attend previously scheduled meetings with Peltz," the lawsuit reads.

Text messages between Nicola Peltz Beckham and the wedding-planning duo were also included in the lawsuit, with one message indicating that Nicola was growing tired of their repeated mistakes. Furthermore, Peltz's lawyers claim that due to the celebrity status of the wedding couple, combined with the anticipated attendance of many high-profile guests, it was essential for the wedding planner to have the expertise and staffing to plan and execute an event of such magnitude and complexity.

The Peltz family eventually turned to Michelle Rago to officiate the wedding, but at a significantly higher fee than Rago Destinations would have charged, due to the last-minute timeline. In conclusion, the lawsuit states that Nicole Peltz is a world-renowned actress, having starred in blockbuster movies and television shows, including "Transformers: Age of Extinction," "Bates Motel," and "The Last Airbender." "The celebrity of the wedding couple combined with the anticipated attendance of many high-profile guests required that the wedding planner have the expertise and staffing to plan, coordinate and execute a wedding event of the expected caliber and complexity," claimed Peltz's lawyers.
