Father-In-Law paid about 1/3, my mom paid about 1/12th, my father paid another 1/12th, we paid the rest.

Actually, it USED to be tradition that parents paid for the wedding. Nowadays, it falls much more on the couple.

We were very lucky.  My parents paid for the entire wedding and my inlaws paid for the rehearsal dinner and shuttles for everyone to and from the wedding so we didn’t haev to worry about anyone drinking and driving.

My parents offered a very generous budget to us. They did not expect that to cover certain costs, such as rings, accessories for me, and beauty (hair/makeup). We are expecting that considering the parts we will be paying, my parents will be contributing around 85% of wedding costs. MY FI’s parents are not financially well off and haven’t offered any (monetary or otherwise) contributions.

My parents are paying for the big ticket items, like the rentals and the food.

Future In-Laws are paying for the bar and the rehearsal dinner.

The rest is paid by myself and the FI!

Not a thin dime…and I’m OK with that. I am 35 and Fiance is 42…it would seem weird to me if they were paying =)

FIL’s will take care of booze and the rehearsal dinner, everything else will be Fiance and I.

they are paying for about 25% and we are getting the rest.  But our budget is a over average so it is A LOT of money out of our pockets (and we are not even having anything extravagant!…ok except photography maybe).  Ugh, I hope this wedding is worth it, seriously.  I really really wish I had above average wealth in times like this.
