Fiance and I are paying for about 75% of the wedding. His parents paid for our honeymoon and gave us a few thousand dollars for other expenses, my mom paid for the dj and our getaway car, and my grandmother paid for our flowers.

My husband’s parents contributed extremely small amounts and my mother primarily paid for the wedding with my father contributing a small amount, as well.

My mum said she and dad would pay for the wedding but Future In-Laws would pay for the drinks, when I mentioned this to my Future Mother-In-Law she said that she and Future Father-In-Law would pay for half of the wedding. Fiance and I want to pay for as much as we can too, so our wedding rings and honeymoon at the very least, as well as bridal party and parents’ gifts of course 🙂

We are doing it on our own but my family are kicking in labor hours helping with all my DIY projects. His mom has offered to contribute to the honeymoon as our wedding present.

My parents aren’t paying for the whole wedding. They are paying for the reception hall (which includes food, alcohol, linens, cake, etc.), which is more than half the cost of the wedding. We are SO grateful for my parents. My parents also paid for my dress and veil. My grandparents gave us some money too which we are going to put towards the wedding.
Not sure about his family yet, but we have just under 2 years so who knows.

My fiance and I are paying for our wedding. My parents, however, did pay for my dress and everything I’m wearing day of. But the thing is, we’re Asian, so it’s expected that instead of gifts, we’re getting money. Also, we both know our parents are giving us large checks as gifts. So it’s not so much a huge dent.

100% us. Not our parents, not the bank, us. Its our wedding no one elses so no one else should pay. and its silly to go in debt for a day 🙂

When the time comes my parents will pay. I feel very guilty about it and would rather elope. But my parents want us to have a wedding. I am very grateful that they have offered.

We are doing most. We had planned to do all ourselves, but our pants kindly volunteered donations, so we are contributing 70-80%

We’re paying for it all ourselves (minus my dress, which my father is paying for and $200 I got from my grandma. That is a total of $400.)
