Wondering who pays for the wedding expenses or the rehearsal dinner expenses? How about the honeymoon, bridal showers, wedding party gifts and attire, and more? There are so many costs associated with the wedding weekend and it can be complex to figure out which family is responsible for paying for what costs (assuming your families have offered to chip in).
Wedding finances can become even more complicated if your family dynamics are not “traditional” or you are not a heterosexual couple.
In my video below, I cover what the “traditional rules” are for who pays for each of the wedding expenses, but why those rules might not work for you and what solutions you might find useful for your unique situation. You’ll get an idea of the baseline traditional guidelines but can completely disregard them if they don’t suit you.
