Does it matter if it's a second wedding for either the groom or bride?

Tell me, let me know what's acceptable.

The reason I asked is because my brother recently got engaged and his fiance (I always get confused which to use for female lol) is asking for "padrinos". Basically asking family to pay for certain things which I find extremely tacky. So I was wondering if this is an actual tradition or she's just trying to get away with paying as little as possible for her own wedding.

Exactly! You don't have to go over the top. Keep it simple.

Yes its tacky. Doesn't matter how many there have been. I think its tacky and rude to expect anyone other then the people getting married to pay for it. If your old enough to get married, your old enough to pay for it.

I think it is tacky.  BUT, a person I know set up a GoFundMe site for her wedding and received about $6500 in donations!

It all depends on who you are asking to help, how old you are, if it's your first, second, third marriage. 

Traditionally the bride's family is who funds the wedding. 

I say set a date and a budget and save like crazy if you really want a wedding.
