    He paid for the custom setting me had made for a family diamond.  I paid for my wedding band only because he wasn’t with me when I decided on it (we went together then I went back again later with my mom).  I bought his band only because we decided to get it off Etsy for like $40 and he didnt know how to use Etsy 😂.  He paid for most of the wedding.

    Hubby paid for my engagement ring, his own ring (I wasn’t working at the time because I was finishing up my degree), and my mom offered to buy my wedding band.

    He bought my engagement ring. By the time we paid for wedding bands it was just about a month before the wedding.  I technically swiped my card but we had considered everything joint even if it wasn’t officially from a joint account yet. We also bought property for cash around then so everything was quickly intertwined.

    He paid for my e-ring and then we paid for our bands together. We had joined our finances in that timeframe so it worked out without a hassle.

    “FI’s father came up to us yesterday, declaring it was the groom’s parents responsibility to pay for the rehearsal dinner food and DJ, which neither of us have ever heard about and assured he did not have to pay (we won’t even have music for the dinner). This has us questioning more of what the Societal expectations are, for curiosity’s sake.”

    Traditionally, that’s the way it was done. The bride’s family pays for the wedding reception and the groom’s family pays for the rehearsal dinner. These days, the couple oftens pay for everything themselves if they are able.

    The engagement ring was a gift for my Fiance to me, so he paid for it (about $8K). He will also pay for the matching diamond wedding band. I will buy his wedding band. It’s all one pot of money however (even though we have not technically combined everything yet), so it doesn’t much matter.
