I believe the groom’s family pays for the rehersal dinner. As far as I know, that’s it!

Just don’t count on tradition in any event!  With weddings becoming more expensive, and the recession hitting parents’ incomes, most couples find they are paying for a lot or all of the wedding themselves.

I think this is a touchy subject, but I think a general rule of thumb is that it’s probably a bad idea to show up to the groom’s family with a list in your hand telling them what they traditionally pay for.  I think you should wait for them to offer to pay for certain things or give a certain amount, otherwise plan the wedding you can afford on your own without their help. 

When it comes to tradition, pretty much anything goes these days!

i think it just depends on the family. for my brother’s wedding, they paid for the whole thing. rd and the wedding. her family didn’t have the money to pay for it, so mine did. for our wedding, my hubby’s family paid for the rd and alcohol. i’ve heard that it’s tradition for them to pay for rd and flowers.
