Does Father of the Bride Still Pay?

Recommended Posts

I was just talking about this with my brother and I was wondering if the tradition of the bride's father/family paying for the wedding still rings true for most people? What's your guys' take?

my family isnt paying...and i think most of the brides on here are paying for everything themselves and their parents may help with the dress or something but i am starting to think that tradition is not too true anymore....but hey if you can get your parents to pay thats amazing! :)

My mother paid for the dress, and our honeymoon accommodations are on mom and dad. (they own a time share in Orlando and are swapping their week for us to have a place in Vegas) Other than that FI and I are footing the bill.

Well here goes:

 

- As someone else said above "my dad is a douche" so he's not even invited to my wedding lol

 

- My step-dad is paying for my two week stay and my FI's parents are paying for his two week stay

 

- my mom paid for half of my dress

 

- FI and I are footing the rest of the costs (photographer, wedding package cost, etc)

We are pretty fortunate that my parents and FIs parents are paying for everything. My parents are paying for my trip and dress etc. and his parents his trip and custom suit - then all the other costs are being split 50/50. The only thing we are really purchasing ourselves is the BM and GM gifts.
