After a last minute babysitter cancelation, one couple had to forgo attending a wedding but later received an usual letter from the bride and groom.

Huffington Post is reporting that Jessica Baker posted a picture of the $75 bill she received for not showing up to a friend’s wedding.

Baker, according to reports, said her mother had to cancel her plans to watch their children. The invitation specifically stated that children were not allowed to attend the wedding, so Baker and her husband stayed home.

After the fact, the Bakers received a payment notice showing that they were expected to cover the cost of the meals they did not eat at the reception.

It reads: "This cost reflects the amount paid 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."
