Unfortunately, the groom has no privity of contract with you. As a result, it would be difficult to come up with a theory under which a recovery would be possible unless you had an agreement that he would contribute to those costs. If not, you gracious efforts would be considered a gift.


I am sorry to hear of your troubles, but, in the long run, calling off the marriage may have been less expensive than a divorce.
