By tradition, the bride’s parents pay for the entire wedding. Being Hispanic, I have never heard of the groom having to pay for the bride’s dress. Maybe it’s different in Mexico. My best advice to you is to talk to your Fiance and see what he thinks. If he can afford and wants to pay for your dress then let him because it’s probably a traditional thing. If he gives you the go ahead to let your parents pay for it then go for it.

Its tradition for the man to pay for the wedding
the dress 50% of the time is included, it depends on the family
but 50% of brides pay for it themselves
that’s what they are incharged of.

Hello to all, I’m new at the site and have loved it, I was born and raised in Merida Mexico and can accurately confirm that YES it is a tradition for the groom to pay for the bride’s dress such as mine is doing for me 🙂 Initially it was customary for the bride’s parents to pay for all, but now a days it depends on budget and family and most young couples are doing their own wedding payments.

But although he pays for it, he does not get to see it before the wedding, that is a big NO NO here, takes all the fun about him not knowing what he is paying for jajaja.

Good luck on your wedding!

I am from Mexico. Yes by tradition the groom family pays for the dress and the church. The bride family for the rest. However in modern Mexico the couple pays for everything.
