TRADITIONALLY WHO PAYS FOR WHAT WHEN PLANNING A WEDDING??

A while ago I read this article about who pays for what at a wedding. This advice still does apply when you are planning a traditional wedding but remember there are so many variables – whether you have been living together for a long time and already have a family, if you have been married before, what religion you belong to and what the expectations are, your own financial situation and your parent’s and partner’s financial situations – the list is endless. So only use this as a guide and bear in mind that not everyone sticks to tradition.
