Yesterday's New York Times reports on a lawsuit filed by a lawyer-bride against her wedding florist. The suit alleges that the florist used "pastel pink" hydrangeas instead of the requested "dark rust" in the table centerpieces.
Their pastel colors clashed with the linens, favor boxes, wedding cake and décor at Cipriani 42nd Street, the luxurious restaurant where she and her husband, David, held their reception, Ms. Glatt said.
“The use of predominantly pastel centerpieces had a significant impact on the look of the room and was entirely inconsistent with the vision the plaintiffs had bargained for,” Ms. Glatt, a lawyer who practices under the name Elana Elbogen, said in the lawsuit, which she filed on behalf of herself, her husband and her mother-in-law, Tobi Glatt, who paid for the flowers.
The New York Post also covered the story. After spending around $30,000 on the pretty pink flowers, the couple now seeks $400,000 in damages.
