'Tired of catching mistakes': Nicola Peltz's harsh texts to wedding planners Nicole Braghin and Arianna Grijalba exposed by dad
MIAMI, FLORIDA: Nicola Peltz went full Bridezilla before her wedding! Apparently, she has sent a string of scathing texts to a wedding planner amid her rumored conflict with her mother-in-law Victoria Beckham. Chaos shattered her plans before the actress sealed the knot with her husband Brooklyn Beckham.
Nicola, 28, allegedly argued with the 'Spice Girls' singer over her wedding gown and went through three event planning companies before securing coordination, two of whom failed to meet the "scale" of her plans. There was a last-minute rush to secure musicians, and one event planner had to face their "day of reckoning" after having been reduced to tears over the project.

Why is Nelson Peltz suing wedding planners Nicole Braghin and Arianna Grijalba?
Nicola's father Nelson Peltz, a billionaire businessman, filed a lawsuit against the wedding planners on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, that revealed additional facts as well as text messages that his daughter sent to one of the planners. He is suing Nicole Braghin and her partner Arianna Grijalba, alleging that they are refusing to refund the $159,000 deposit he paid them.
After firing their initial planner Preston Bailey, Nelson and his wife Claudia contacted Braghin and Grijalba through their company 'Plan Design Events' in March 2022, six weeks before the wedding. The Peltz family, who refer to their daughter as a "world-famous actress", had big plans for the three-day event. Grijalba and Braghin worked for the Peltz family for nine days before being told they weren't up to the mark. Nelson called the two on March 4, which Peltz's attorneys refer to as the "day of reckoning", to inform them that they had been fired.
"Nicola is a world-famous actress who has starred in blockbuster movies and television shows, including, among others, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Bates Motel and The Last Airbender. The guest list included more than five hundred people, including numerous celebrities, athletes, dignitaries and other influential individuals, who traveled from all around the globe to attend," the lawsuit reads, as per Daily Mail. However, after paying a $159,000 deposit to Braghin and Grijalba, the Peltzes decided against working with the pair because they believed they couldn't handle the VIP guestlist.
"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," Nelson's lawyers said in the lawsuit. Nelson shared some private information about the star-studded event in an attempt to get his money back which included screenshots of a conversation between him, the planners, and Nicola.
'I'm tired of catching mistakes'
In a series of screenshots released by Nelson, and obtained by Daily Mail, Nicola told the planners she was "tired of catching" their repeated mistakes. In a heated exchange, Nicola wrote, "Lewis Hamilton did NOT RSVP. So explain why his names on the list please. We spoke to him. He can't come so explain why you said he rsvpd yes," she demanded. The wedding planner tried to explain that she wasn't familiar with the virtual guest list and needed more time to get to grips with the technology. "I need time to do this. I'm going to take a moment to learn the app and send you the information, I hate looking like a fool but I hate the most not giving you what you need ASAP. I will be back soon," she said.
The Peltz family claims the wedding planners exaggerated their skills when they assured them they could handle the "once in a lifetime" event. "Peltz had presented them with the opportunity of a lifetime – to have their names associated with the wedding of two world-famous celebrities, which would undoubtedly propel PDE into wedding planning stardom. In reality, however, it later became clear that PDE viewed this as an opportunity to take advantage of Peltz by making material misrepresentations on both their website and in person regarding their experience, expertise, and capability of planning the wedding," Nelson's attorneys said in the lawsuit.
