Just wondering. Weddings are soo expensive so who usually pays for weddings? Do both families chip in and help or is it usually one sided? If it is one sided, who’s side is it usually?

Traditionally, it’s supposed to be the bride’s family, but I think nowadays it’s more common for everyone to pitch in. My husband and I spent a lot of our own money. Then again, I think we had a small wedding and I think only spent about $3000 :)

Now this matter can be discussed. In my case, my FI and I aare paying for the wedding. My mother is throwing us an engagement party and the money gifts from the party will be used towards our wedding which is really helpful. My mom is paying for the dress – its a traditional gift.

If my boyfriend and I are expecting my parents (or even his parents) to contribute anything to the wedding, we’ll be screwed.

My wedding is going to be very cost effective. Its going to be outside, in the fall, and everything will be DIY. I’m not going to have flowers for the actual ceremony but beautiful leaves. The only flowers will be my bouquet and the flowers for the reception.
The most expensive thing will probably be where we hold the reception and the gown. Everything else will be good priced.
I don’t want to start the new chapter of my life in debt. Just saying.

When I got married, my husband took care of all the finances. All I did is to plan everything with his approval of course. I was so blessed with a generous husband I think hahaha . . .
