I think that if your parents feel like they want to help, or pay for it all – they will offer.  My MIL’s 3rd wedding was gifted by her parents. I personally wouldn’t bring this up to your parents. 

I think that at your age, though – you should be prepared to pay yourself. The “tradition” of the  brides family paying was because you used to get married at 17.  I think at any age, the couple should be prepared to pay for themselves, and consider any help they get as a blessing, and not as an expectation due to tradition.
