    I think it depends on everyones’ feelings on the matter. I’d say the bride and groom; but I KNOW that if my parents had the money to pay for it without it being a hardship they would want to regardless and would be upset if we didn’t let them. So, I would not demand we pay and make them upset.

    I voted for all three parties paying, but my mom doesn’t have money for much so my Fiance is pretty much paying for everything. I’m buying my veil, shoes, jewelry, his ring and nick-knack stuff and some other things I’m sure we’ll split

    In an ideal world, we would have paid for it. In reality, that’s pretty much what happened.
