For those who are married, or were married, who paid for it (yourselves, your family, his family)? If your not married, would your family help pay for a wedding?

1 mom liked this

We paid for it ourselves, and intend on paying for our renewal ourselves as well.

My dad did . His parents paid for the rehearsal dinner. We kept it very frugal though and didn't have a huge elaborate thing

My parents paid for the cake/did the reception, we paid the wedding costs like flowers, invites, dresses, tuxes(his-his friends paid to rent their own, we got a good deal), etc, and his mom did the rehearsal dinner.  We saved a lot by using fake flowers, making my dress and the bridesmaid dresses, and getting a package deal on the tuxes and invites.

We're not married but when we do I imagine wed pay for the whole thing. I'm sure our parents would offer some help but I'm not sure how much. I would plan it like I was paying for it all. It's actually part of the reason were not married--we can't afford the wedding we want

It turned into a pissing contest between my parents and his parents. We couldn't get a cent in anywhere to pay for a thing and they kept trying to outdo each other. The end result was this over the top formal wedding that I absolutely hated.

My mother was like that, only all by herself lol. So that's why she paid for everything. We were going to go to the courthouse.


Quoting MsRkg:
