A couple has set the internet on fire thanks to an invoice over their wedding.

According to the New York Post, Chicago couple Doug Simmons and Dedra McGee were recently married in a ceremony held at Royalton Negril in Jamaica. Those who didn’t show were hit with a $240 invoice. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The invoice states that the unnamed individuals can pay via PayPal or Zelle. You can give the whole thing a look below.

Understandably, this invoice has gone viral and created a huge debate online. As of right now, it has more than 4,000 retweets and 8,000 likes.

Opinions are also all over the place. Some agree with the decision. Others think it goes too far.

Here’s where I fall on this issue. I’m 100% against the invoice. I’ve never ever skipped a wedding I RSVP’d to, but even if I did have to skip the big day, I would certainly give heads up for whatever reason might be necessary.

However, sending someone an invoice is mega-lame. Don’t let someone rent that much space in your head, and you’re probably never going to see that money anyways.

It’s been spent. Just move on and enjoy your honeymoon.

Do I understand being upset about blowing $120 on each person who didn’t show up to your wedding? Sure, but I still wouldn’t send an invoice.

I’m not that petty with money.

Let us know in the comments if you’d ever send an invoice.
