Darling Husband and I paid for about 95% of our wedding expenses. We’re both in our late 20s and felt we were in a position to pay for it without our parents’ help. 

However, my mom demanded to pay for my wedding dress. Since it was less than $500, I let her have her way.

My mom gifted us some money, his parents did the rehearsal dinner and paid for bus transportation for the guests, my husband and I paid for the rest.  

As for splitting the costs between my husband and I, I am not sure. We have a joint acct that we deposit 50% of our salaries into and we paid stuff out of there mostly. I think my dress technically came out of my personal acct, but if we were short for something we would just take it from whatever checking acct had spare money.

We never touched savings.
