Who paid for your dress

We planned to pay for the entire wedding ourselves. My parents have given us some money, but I did not ask nor expect it since my father has a lot of health issues and medical bills. My fiance's parents have not offered to pay for anything except my fiance's military mess dress. I think times are different and you can't expect the same things that were maybe more traditional a few years ago.

In the end FI and I are paying for about half of the wedding. It was less than I thought we'd have to pay given the times and who strapped for cash so many people are. I don't think it's right to expect things these days, because we do live in a completely different era.

My parents are also paying for everything. A few years ago they saw a wedding at a resort and came home and told us that if we ever wanted to do a DW they'd pay for it. We are super lucky, I know every family is different. Two of my friends are paying for their whole weddings themselves.
