Wedding Guest Gets Billed for Not Showing Up to Ceremony

Ever sent your wedding invite with your plus one back to a couple only to later find out that you cannot attend the wedding? Well, look out, because now you might get charged for not attending!

That’s what just happened in Minnesota…

It was a couple weeks ago, Jessica Baker was getting ready to go to a wedding with her husband when she got a call from her mom.

“She called at the last minute and had something come up and said I can’t make it,” said Baker.

Her mom was supposed to watch their kids. And since the invitation said no children, that meant no wedding. But then this week, she received a bill for the dinner they were supposed to have enjoyed.

“You’ve got to be kidding me,” she said with a smile. “It listed, we would have had two herb crusted walleye and there was also a service and tax charge.”

The total came to $75.90.

“This cost reflects the amount paid by the bride and groom for meals that were RSVP’d for, reimbursement and explanation for no show, card, call or text would be appreciated,” the note read.

So, do you think it is right that the guests be charged for not showing up?
