Planning Budget Who pays for what?

Who pays for what?

Wedding expensesTraditionally, the bride's family would foot the whole wedding bill. Therefore, things have changed. Today, the spendings are shared by both sets of parents and couples participate in the spendings depending on their financial situation. With this option, they are in better position to have a say and monitor the event although their parents are involved in spendings. It's quite difficult for everyone, but when everything has been coordinated in advance, it makes the wedding planning experience much more enjoyable.
