#TipfulTuesday: Who Pays For What?

View More: http://sarahdelanie.pass.us/holmeswedding

Today’s #TipfulTuesday we wanted to touch base on a subject we get asked about a ton when planning a wedding. “Who pays for what?” Traditionally the bride’s family is responsible for the bulk cost of the entire wedding. While the groom & his family take care of the rehearsal dinner, honeymoon, and the brides rings. Keeping with traditions when it comes to who pays for what we have a few etiquette guidelines for you!

Bride + Family:

  • Ceremony & reception venue
  • Food & beverage (grooms family sometimes pays for the bar)
  • Wedding gown + accessories
  • Services of wedding planner
  • Stationary (Save the date + invitations + thank you cards + programs + menu cards)
  • Flowers + photography + videography + entertainment + transportation
  • Guest Favors
  • Rentals (Tables + Chairs + Linens)
  • Bridal hair & makeup
  • Bridal luncheon
  • Grooms ring + bridesmaids gifts + wedding gift for groom

Groom + Family:

  • Rehearsal dinner
  • Marriage license
  • Officiant’s fee
  • Honeymoon
  • His wedding day attire
  • Bridal bouquet & boutonnieres
  • Brides rings + groomsmen gifts + brides wedding day gift
  • Transportation for bride & grooms exit
  • Wedding night hotel room

Bridal Party:

  • Wedding day attire (bride & grooms sometimes pay for this)
  • Wedding shower
  • Bachelor & bachelorette parties
  • Hair + makeup (brides sometimes pay for this)
  • Hotel room if needed

Now in days things have changed a bit, couples are getting married later in life when they are both financially stable enough to pay for the wedding on their own. Both bride’s & groom’s parents are contributing more evenly as well.
