    Maybe change the poll options so we can choose multiple options?  My family, his family, and we are contributing to our wedding!

    I’m also 21 (so is my FI) and my parents are paying for the majority of the wedding (so grateful!). My Fiance and I and his parents are also going to be contributing money (:

    My family, thank goodness. I am also 21, and with $75,000 of sudent loan debt, it would have been the courthouse dor us if my parents weren’t being as generous as they are. We would not be able to afford a wedding on our own

    We are…simply put…money tends to make people think they have some power over what can be done with it….I know it’s their money but we didnt want the headache or the fighting. Our money….our way…..don’t like it…don’t come!

    My parents are still together, so they both paid for the whole wedding~well they actually gave us a et amount and said do with it as you please.  We could have eloped and saved the money to buy a house later on.  They just asked we allow them to come with us.  We chose to have a big wedding.  We used some of the money for rings/honeymoon but covered the majority of the rings/honeymoon ourselves.  His parents covered the rehearsal dinner.  We’re pretty traditional people.

    My option isn’t listed since my mom paid for the entire wedding with a small pitch-in from my dad and a little from my husband’s parents.

    My fiance and I are paying.  He’ll probably pay for more, since he’s been working longer and has savings.

    I need to put on my stern-hat, so I can say “are you paying for it?  No?  Then shut up.”

    My Fiance and I are paying for a little over half of it, FI’s parents are paying for food and alcohol which is a little less than half of the budget, and my parents have paid for dress, alterations and rehearsal dinner.

    A bit of a hodge-podge. My parents are also divorced, so my mom and step-dad paid the most overall. My dad and step-mom also paid some and DH and I paid some. There was no contribution from DH’s family towards the actual wedding.

    FH and I are paying for everything. My parents pitched in, but most of it is on us. I think the FH mom wants to do something, but I highly doubt they’ll be able to do it.
