Is It Tacky Or Totally Fair That A Couple Charged Wedding Guests $120 Each for No-Showing?
Leo and Rebecca Buzz Question - Is this tacky or totally fair? A couple from Chicago named Doug and Dedra Simmons recently had a destination wedding in Jamaica. And one couple who RSVP'd didn't show up. So Doug and Dedra CHARGED them for no-showing. They say the couple told them four different times that they were coming, and never called to cancel. So they sent them an INVOICE for $240 . . . $120 for each seat at the reception that they left empty.
Herter is what the 432 had to say about this!!
You ain’t getting nothing
RSVP to an event is a form of contractual agreement and can be held up in the court of law if the right wording was introduced in the RSVP rider.

Super tacky and childish.
You CRAY if you think I'm sending you ANY kind of money. In fact I'm taking back my GIFT to you! Totally not right to expect our guest to pay for your wedding let alone after the wedding. NO shows are NO shows. It's going to happen. I don't even think guest need to TELL YOU THAT THEY are not going.
