Local TV station Kare 11 notes that the wedding invitation had cited no children could attend so the couple didn’t go.

This week they received a bill for what they would have eaten where they there.

Baker told Kare 11: ”You’ve got to be kidding me. It listed we would have had two herb-crusted walleye and there was also a service and tax charge.”

The total came to $75.90 (€68).
