Wedding Tips ~ Who Pays For What?

The bride’s family historically was responsible for most of the the expenses for the wedding of their daughter. As times have changed, the costs are now generally shared by both families.Today many couples are marrying later in life, and with higher incomes some brides and grooms today insist on paying themselves. Weddings can be costly and meeting to discuss what costs will be shared is recommended in order to prevent financial hardship and determine the budget for the wedding.
