Nick and Whitney Lavinder to appear on "Wild Weddings" 5.06

Written by David Green.

Whitney (Waack) Lavinder of Fayette will get to relive a wedding blunder this Friday—on national television.

Whitney married Nick Lavinder Nov. 1 in Delta, Ohio, and they staged a “Dash for Cash” at their reception. During the run for the money, Whitney fell flat on her face. The move was caught on video—and then submitted to “Wild Weddings” on TLC.

The clip made the cut and Whitney’s embarrassing moment is scheduled to air at 9 p.m.

Whitney is the daughter of Jeff and Penny Waack of Wauseon and Nick is the son of Trent and Nancy Lavinder and Jeff and Dodie Cuff of Fayette.

Bridal party members also appearing in the clip are Chad Lavinder, Timo Salinas, Justin Rodriguez, Ben Sly, David Sallows, Kendra Batdorf, Hayley Tule, Lauren Bishop, Breena O’Neil and Aleasha Kelly.

TLC will compensate Whitney—and the rest of the bridal party—so the botched dash will still bring in some cash.

NOTE: The show was rescheduled to May 15.
