There are many unspoken rules and so many behaviors surrounding weddings and the events that lead to them. Some rules are well known, such as not wearing a white dress if you are a guest or sending a gift even if you can’t do it, but there are other areas that are a bit gray.
No show, for example: When the groom and bride carefully ensuring that there is a place at a table, a meal and enough space and drinks for each guest, rude for the guest to simply appear without any warning.
That profanity is exaggerated many times when marriage is a destination wedding – but it still happens. And that fact prompted newlywed Doug Simmons to find catharsis by producing a tongue -in -cheek document that caused a stir.
Doug and Dedra were married on August 18 at the long -awaited destination wedding in Negril, Jamaica. They had 109 guests RSVP for the event, and they had to announce for all of them a month in advance of the wedding.
Obviously, they check many times to make sure their guests can still attend, and everything seems beautiful.
“We asked four times from November to August if they would attend, and each time they would answer yes,” Doug said. Now the TMRW. “If at any time they can’t attend, we really understand, but with no call no show is pretty frustrating.”
And yet, on the day of marriage, four guests and their plus-ones not shown without a peek. No call, no message, no reason. Empty seats and full plate.
“We were all on WhatsApp and none of us got a text or call from any of them letting us know they couldn’t do it,” Doug continued. “When we got home from Jamaica, there were still no calls or texts.”
So he decided to channel that frustration into something productive: An invoice billing with no showing for them. dinner.
“This invoice is being mailed to you because you confirmed the wedding reception seat (s) during the Final Headcount,” the “Notes” section at the bottom of the document states. “The amount above is the cost of your individual seats.
“Because you did not call or give us proper notice that you will not be attending, this amount is what you will pay us for paying for your seat (s) in advance. You can pay via Zelle or PayPal.”
With every dinner coming in at $ 120, it’s no surprise that Doug is a bit overwhelmed by the situation. The cost is not put on him or her will get married in any kind of financial trouble, but who likes to spend $ 960 on people who also have no respect to let you know they can’t afford it?

Doug, whose Facebook handle is Septimbur Petty, shared the invoice online and has since gone viral with more than 6,700 shares.
“DO NOT CHANGE MY SENDING THIS #INVOICE TO YOU,” his post state. “IT’S GONNA LOOK LIKE THIS. I AM SENDING IT VIA EMAIL AND CERTIFIED MAIL… JUST IN CASE I TELL YOU NOT TO GET AN EMAIL. ”
Doug agreed that his invoice was a bit small, but he also said that if guests just told him they couldn’t afford it, he would understand.
He was also sure to let people know that the invoice was “meant as a joke” and not actually sent to anyone. But it’s posted, in public, so prospective guests will get the message, even if they’re not stuck with the bill.
“I have no intention of sending it to anyone and it has not been sent to anyone,” he said. “I know that just posting alone will get them their emotions, which it did.
“Marriage together isn’t cheap, and it doesn’t matter if you’re poor or rich, no one wants to waste their money. It’s about integrity and having morality.”
