Weddings by Showtime Complaint - Don't use this company

Review by skathle on 2008-01-27
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS -- This wedding planner charged a ton of money and then a few weeks prior to the wedding (after we had paid) decided that the "planner" wouldn't be able to attend and she sent her 16 year old "assistant" instead. They also told us we wouldn't have to lift a finger on our wedding day -- which didn't happen since the planner was MIA, failed to bring supplies (which we had already paid for) she said she would and was generally irresponsible and unreliable.

She also only rented half the amount of chairs we needed and told us on the wedding day just to have our guests bring up their chairs from the ceremony. When we asked for a refund she tried to say this was all standard and that she had informed us of all of this.

Don't use her she has NO IDEA WHAT SHE IS DOING!!!

Contact Judge Judy and bring your written contract and your pictures and video.

I hope your wedding turned out okay in the end and that it was a beautiful day despite the wedding planner fiasco. Sorry you couldn't depend on this company to come through on what should be one of the most important days of your life. Speaking of which, hope you have a great marriage!

Why drag your butt all the way to Los Angeles to be humiliated on TV? File a suit in the local small claims court. It will take less time.

PB, true but it's more fun to see JJ tear them apart. You're right, Crystal. I've seen her rip them up one side and down the other. BTW, I think the show pays the travel expenses for these cases, doesn't it?

All the so-called court programs do give the 'contestants' a nice incentive to win their case. On Judge Judy the plaintiff and defendant are given I believe $5000 to share. But if they lose a monetary amount their share of the $5000 is given to the other party. Not a bad deal. Oh, the TV courts are legally considered arbitration, not actual courts of law.

I was once called by Judge Joe Brown to be on the show. Basically what happens is that if I won, I'd be paid in full from the TV show itself and then they would go after the other party.

I chose not to do it though as I had surgery scheduled for the day after they would be shooting and those shows are incredibly trashy. (But that's why we love them!)
