Planning a wedding is not an easy task, organizing one is even harder. As the wedding bills washes away the pockets of the hosts, making sure the number of guests who won’t be able to attend the ceremony– to save extra penny, is in fact a smart thing to do. Yet sometimes, some guests don’t show up even after RSVPing about their presence. First ghosting and then not even being considerate enough to call and explain their reason for not showing has become a trend.
In a similar event, when two guests decided to not show up in a wedding albeit confirming their attendance, the bride pulls an amazing stunt to teach them a lesson. On Wednesday, senior front-page editor of Huffington Post Philip Lewis, shared a picture on his Twitter account that shows a ‘one of its kind’ wedding reception invoice.
In his amazement Phillip captioned the post, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a wedding reception invoice before.”

To make up for the cost of dinner that was reserved for the ‘no-show’ wedding guests, the bride printed out a special invoice that marks a bill of $240 (Rs 17,700). The invoice mentions the venue of the wedding- Royalton Negril, a resort in Negril, Jamaica as well as the reason for the bill that reads, “No call, no show guest.”
Furthermore, the “Unit Price” of $120 per wedding reception dinner is mentioned along with a note that reads, “This invoice is being sent to you because you confirmed seat(s) at the wedding reception during the Final Headcount. The amount above is the cost of your individual seats. Because you didn’t call or give us proper notice that you wouldn’t be in attendance, this amount is what you owe us for paying your seat(s) in advance. You can pay via Zelle or PayPal. Please reach out to us and let us know which method of payment works for you. Thank you!”
Netizens are in an agreement with the bride’s bold step, their praise-worthy comments below the posts prove so. A person shared his/her thought and commented, “Hey, it’s something anyone in their shoes has thought of wanting to do. They just had the chutzpah to actually do it. Weddings are expensive and stressful. Not showing up is insulting. I get it. Good for them”
