    Jessica Baker got a bill for $79.50 after she and her husband had to skip out on a friend's wedding, NBC affiliate KARE reported.

    The night of the wedding, Baker got a call from her mom.

    "She called at the last minute and had something come up and said I can't make it," Baker told KARE.

    Since the wedding invitation said no children and Baker was now without a sitter, the couple had to forego the event. 

    A week later, Baker was shocked to receive a bill for the dinner they were supposed to have.

    "You've got to be kidding me," she told KARE. "It listed, we would have had two herb crusted walleye and there was also a service and tax charge."

    The bill 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."

    Baker said she has no plans on paying the bill.
