Bride Sends Wedding No-Shows $75 Bill


A mother of two from Minnesota says she was billed $75 for missing a relative’s wedding because she couldn’t find child care.

Jessica Baker, 33, from Andover, Minnesota says she was “shocked” when she opened the mailbox this week and found a $75 bill from the bride and groom.

The total bill, a precise $75.90, came to the cost of two $30 “Herb Crusted Walleye” entrees plus a “Service & Tax Charge.”

Baker was planning to attend the wedding of a relative on her husband’s side of the family when her mother, the couple’s planned babysitter, called in sick.

Baker says the bride and groom had specified a no-children wedding, so she and her husband decided to stay home.

Baker says she threw the bill away, but before she did, she took a photo of it and posted it on her Facebook page.
