FI’s parents are not paying for our wedding… but neither are my parents (hopefully)!!  We are doing our best to foot the entire bill.  My parents are giving us a monetary gift, but we’re hoping to use it towards downpayment on a house rather than for wedding expenses.

My fiance and I are paying for 50%. The other 50% is divided equally amongst my parents and his. Times have definitely changed.

I’ve heard of all sorts of things happening. For my sis, my parents paid for most everything. For SO’s BFF, he/his parents paid for the whole shebang. We’re planning on paying for it ourselves (aka, he’s paying).

Whatever works for you. 🙂

We’re splitting it three ways evenly – us, his parents, and my parents.

Me and my fiancé are paying for everything. It would be nice if a relative was interested in donating to the cause! Le sigh ;( 

… Buuuut at least we get total control of our special day!

Fiance and I are footing most of the bill. My parents will be contributing about 30% which I am ecstatic about. When both my parents offered the money, I was thrilled, it really helps us out alot. FI’s Mother lives overseas, we’re still waiting on immigrations to permit her a visitors visa, but she will not be contributing to the wedding, which is totally fine. Her being here is a big enough gift. Fiance hasn’t seen his Mother in 8 years, and the flight is expensive.

My parents are paying for the bulk of it, but the fiance is paying for a small portion and his parents are paying for the rehearsal dinner.
