ASK THE PLANNER SUNDAY - Who pays for what?




I probably get this question more often than not from bridal couples. Of course, there are the traditional lists:


Bride's Family
All Reception Costs
Church Fees
Groom's Rings
Invitations
Flowers for Church, Bridesmaids and Reception
Music for Ceremony
Transportation for Bridal Party
Gifts for Bridal Party
Groom's Gift
Lodging for Bridesmaids, if necessary

Groom's Family
Bride's Ring
Clergy Fees
Bride's Bouquet, Corsages and Boutonnieres
Rehearsal Dinner
Transportation for Groomsmen
Gifts for Groomsmen
Bride's Gift
Lodging for Groomsmen, if necessary


Bridal Party
Your Attire
The Shower
If you're from out-of-town, Transportation to the Town the wedding is in
Gift for the Couple

Groomsmen
Your Attire
The Stag
If you're from out-of-town, Transportation to the Town the wedding is in
Gift for the Couple



Believe me, I KNOW these list are old and most couples do not follow this. I suggest to my clients to only use this as a guideline. Each couple should decide what their budget is and discuss all other expenses per the list with their parents.
