    Our wedding was $9k, husband and I paid for everything ourselves. Cash, no debt. We did get about $4k back in wedding gifts afterwards from our families. This recouped some funds and paid for our entire honeymoon cruise to Alaska.

    My parents paid for the wedding. DH bought my rings and paid for the rehearsal dinner.  I bought DH’s wedding band, and, because I had a much-higher paying job at the time, I paid for our honeymoon.  However, I thank God for making all of it possible!

    We havent had the wedding yet, but my parents are known to be very generous with their money, so everything we have gone to look at or even talked about she said she will pay for. So I am guessing she will pay for 75% of everything.

    No help here. Lucky I am in school and am taking my financial aid after classes/books are paid for and will use that to pay for what we have not purchased already.

    We’re doing an almost equal split three ways: between both sets of parents, then Fiance and I.

    We’re in San Francisco, so everything is pretty expensive out here. Our wedding is 65k  My parents are paying 18k. His parents are paying 15k. We’re paying the remaining 32k plus the honeymoon. Fiance is working crazy amounts of overtime, and we’re expecting a large tax return. So far, it looks like we will enter marriage debt free. Yay!
