Dream wedding, bad ending
Here's the tale of an English bride who, reports say, stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from her employer to fund a lavish wedding:
A bride who stole nearly half a million pounds to fund her dream wedding has been jailed for two years.
Joanne Kent, 26, hired every room in a cliff-top hotel, laid on a fireworks display, splashed on flowers and even bought Armani bracelets for guests.
The mother-of-two spent the money on the lavish ceremony in Newquay, Cornwall, in September 2007 while tying the knot to fiance David.
