Bride Charges Wedding Guest $75 For Skipping Her Wedding
Fri 02-10-2015


Jessica Baker told KARE-TV that she and her husband received a $75.90 bill after missing the wedding that they had originally planned to attend earlier this year.

The couple’s babysitter, Baker’s mother, fell through, which prompted the change of plans, the station reported.

“The invoice arrived in the mail yesterday,” Baker told the NBC affiliate in Minneapolis. “My first reaction was just, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me. You’ve got to be kidding me.'”

“And then, when I read it, the whole thing, I just kind of laughed and had to call up my husband and go, ‘Uh, our friends sent us this bill for not making it to their wedding.’ And we kind of had a good laugh about it.”

The bill covered the cost of two meals, plus tax and a service charge, according to the station.

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

Baker told the station that she wasn’t planning on paying the newlyweds, who haven’t been identified.
