Weddings can be very costly for the bride and groom– the food, wedding hall, decorations, entertainment, the list goes on and on. But how much do you think it costs a guest for not showing up? When a couple’s plan to attend a wedding was unexpectedly interrupted, the couple had to cancel, unfortunately.
The no-show Jessica Baker received a bill for the dinner they were supposed to have enjoyed. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” she said. “It listed, we would have had two herbs-crusted walleye, and there was also a service and tax charge.
The total cost $75.90.
The bill was accompanied by a note that read “This cost reflects the amount paid for 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.” It is understandable that the married couple would have been upset at the m.i.a. pair, but Jessica argues to respond with a bill is uncanny.
Sarah Baumann Rogers, editor of Minnesota Bride magazine has experience with wedding etiquette and the expert advises “to prepare for about 10 percent of overage or underage when you’re planning a big event like that.”
She also said don’t wait too long to RSVP. Respond as soon as you can and if you say you’re attending, stick to it.
But, we can all agree that life happens, right?
