Newlyweds Refuse To Pay RM26K Debt To Caterer For Their Wedding Even After 10 Months
A wedding caterer has demanded payment several times from a newlywed couple who owe her company RM26,000 for the service she provided at their wedding 10 months ago
The caterer vented her frustrations on Facebook, claiming that the couple had requested a plush menu for their wedding.
On the wedding day, her company catered food for 1,850 guests. They served two roast lambs, five dome sets, and 1,000 bottles of F&N orange juice at the couple's request.
After the ceremony, the couple wrote a cheque to the catering company for the total cost of the catering service.
However, the bank later informed them that the cheque had bounced.
The caterer claimed she had requested the deposit money from the couple several times before the wedding, but they told her that they couldn't pay the deposit and promised to give her the full amount after the ceremony.
One day before the wedding, she requested the deposit money again from the couple, but they told her they could not pay yet.
"I felt bad thinking that no food would be served at their wedding, so I went ahead with their order. Besides, I have never had a problem where newlyweds failed to pay for my services in full," she said.
The caterer contacted the newlyweds about the bounced cheque, but they requested two more months to settle their pay
"It has been 10 months since their wedding, but I have not received a single cent for my service," she said.
The caterer shared her story on Facebook, hoping the public's attention would pressure them to pay off their debt.
The newlyweds then threatened not to pay the caterer's company if their case was made viral on social media.
The catering company has since lodged a police report.
Meanwhile, a couple became husband and wife at the Nirvana Memorial centre, located at Choa Chu Kang, Singapore:
