When planning a wedding, who pays for what?

I need to know how costs are divided up.

Traditionally it would be the parents of the bride paying for the wedding but things aren't so strict these days. Both families will usually want to contribute and the bride and groom usually save up themselves too. Get together and discuss who wants to contribute and how much. Less well-off relatives may want to contribute in non-financial ways e. g. planning.

It used to be that the bride's family paid for everything except the groom's outfit and the rings. It was also traditional for groom's family to pay for rehersal dinner.

It really depends on what you and your family can afford and what you are accustomed to. Most couples have to pay for the own wedding now days, but truly it is believed that the brides parents pay for the wedding mostly. It would be best to go to a library and check out some books about weddings.

These days many couples pay for their own costs. Parents of the bride and groom may offer to cover certain things but it should not be expected.
