      I have been to a destination wedding. My wife and I shelled out a few bucks to be there. Other people spent even more in air fare, lodging, meals, etc. People who attend a destination wedding typically cough up significant coin. Of course, the couple staging the wedding spent some money, too. The couple referenced in the article sent invoices to no-shows. Personally, I would pay the $240 and apologize. Unless I thought they were butt-heads and wanted to write them off as friends. I thnk destination weddings are too extravagent, too ostentatious, and should be limited to close friends,

      A Chicago couple sent a $240 invoice to their ‘no call, no show’ guests who did not attend their destination wedding, report says (msn.com)

      The article says the hosts reached out several times to confirm that the guests were coming. Yet they never responded after the initial acceptance. People are so rude these days.

      Personally, I’d only even consider it if I’d paid for the flight to Jamaica.

      “Not about the money?” Yeah, right. Invoices are about money. A polite note regretting they were unable to attend the event they prepared for them is about the principle.

      I suspect the wedding couple will be embarrassed about the invoices for the rest of their lives – or at least for the rest of their marriage!!

      I would pay them but with the stipulation that they pay it back to me if they get divorced!
