This is the scenario...

You as parents just got done paying for your daughters college education at a four year college. She graduates and right after gets engaged to her boyfriend of 2 years. She lets her parents know and she expects her parents to pay for the wedding fully even after they just put out over tens of thousands of dollars for college for her.

Would you pay for the wedding also even after putting out all that money out of pocket for college?

This is hypothetical. My husband and I were in a situation where we had saved for college for our kids but still had to put out money out of pocket also for our older two while still having 2 younger children at home.

My parents paid for my wedding, but not my college education. Here's a bump for someone who has more experience with this than I.

My parents didn't pay for my college education nor did they contribute a penny for my wedding.   Sorry.  Good luck!

I would, if the wedding was at least 2 years away.

My only girl is 2 mos so I still have a long time to think about this but I would set aside a certain amount. Tell her that you will pay that much and anything over that they would need to pay.

I'm not sure. My parents didn't pay for my college or my wedding, but I want to do better by my daughters so I would help them as much as I could,
