We paid for everything ourselves. We were 26 and 29, it was my husbands second marriage. It just seemed weird not to pay for it on our own.

They paid for my dress and helped with flowers and other items. We wanted a bigger wedding and knew we'd be doing it on our own.

No way. They gave us a wedding gift but paying for the wedding was our responsibility.

My parents and in laws paid for the whole thing, minus the dresses and makeup and hair and stuff like that.

Ha, ha! My ex inlaws paid for my first wedding as a gift.

My mother told me, when I was engaged to my new husband that she wasn't paying for my second wedding. I almost spit my water through nose and blurted, "Lady, you didn't pay for my first wedding!" It was pretty funny.

Yes, despite my efforts to pay for some of it myself. I bought my dress on my own and my mom looked it up online and sent me a check for the amount.
