A Minnesota woman had to skip out on a friends’ wedding at the last minute — and she says she was charged for it!
Jessica Baker and her husband RSVP’d “yes” to the invitation — that stated that no children were allowed at the ceremony.
But when her mother had to cancel her babysitting duties at the last minute on the day of the wedding, Baker had no choice but to miss the celebration!
A few weeks later, Baker received a bill for the meals that she and her husband didn’t get the chance to eat. They were charged $75.90 for two “herb-crusted walleye” orders, plus tax and service charges!
The bill came with a note that read:
“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.”
Wow, we guess the honeymoon ended FAST for the newlywed couple!
While some commenters are siding with the bride and groom, editor of Minnesota Bride magazine Sarah Baumann Rogers says that charging a guest for their food is definitely not proper wedding etiquette! She explained:
“Under no circumstances should you choose to follow up after the fact…kind of questioning why they couldn’t attend or much less sending a bill.”
Baker said she has no plans to pay, and we can’t say we blame her.
Weddings are expensive, but if a guest is unable attend due to reasons out of their control, it’s not their responsibility to pick up the bill, right?
