    My future in-laws are paying for the majority, my parents are contributing as well, and my aunt and uncle gave a little bit too.

    We’re paying it all because we want complete control and wouldn’t have it any other way.

    My parents paid for most of it, but my in laws paid for rd and alcohol.

     @kankanwed: We got lucky, my parents gifted us the money and said do what you want with it, so we still had complete control.

    We are paying for it all because it would just get nuts otherwise. Besides we already have a mortgage and stuff so for us not to pay would just seem…wrong.

    We’re planning on a destination wedding so we are just thrilled if you can get yourself there for the event. 

    No one needs to pay for anything or even give us gifts for that matter. 

    My Mum is going to help with my dress though.  She’s been waiting a loooonng time for that! 😛

    @sceeder:

    Agreed; we own a house and have a child together already, so approaching my dad and being like, “Can you pay for our wedding?” would just seem so silly. (Though I won’t turn down money if he just gives it to me as a gift, LOL.)

    My Fiance just got a job in January (this month), so I have pretty much paid for the entire thing, thus far.  Hopefully, he will be able to pitch in soon and take care of the honeymoon.

    my parents offered us an amount of money and his parents decided to “match” them and offered us the same amount. any overflow from that, my husband and i covered.

    @artbee: You are lucky. My parents have drove us nuts by taking over our original idea of having a large wedding at home and it snowballed into a disaster. Hence why we chose on a very very small Destination Wedding instead and are paying it on our own.

    Darling Husband and I paid for 50%, My parents 25% and in-laws 25%. It worked out fabulously for everyone involved.

    We are paying for all of it.  My Mother-In-Law has said she will contribute, but has never said how much, so we are just counting on paying for it all and any contributions will just be a nice surprise!
