    James and I are paying for our wedding. We let our parents know that we would be paying, we didn't want them to feel obligated to pay. My mom paid for my wedding dress and some other odds and ends and i'm sure that both of our parents will give us a generous amount of money as a wedding gift.

        My parents are giving us $6000 towards the wedding and paying for the photographer who is coming for the whole week. I am hoping to keep the cost in that area, but it does not look like will happen. We are having an AHR and his parents said they would pay for that, mainly because they really want us to have one.

          We we're all set to pay for it ourselves but my father insisted. He said he's planned on paying for my wedding since 1979 when I was born, so I let him have his way...lol. We paid for some of the wedding stuff and our flight/accomodations in Mexico. My hubby paid for the honeymoon.

            We're planning to pay for everything ourselves, however his mom has said she'd help somehow (she has offered to pay for his suit), my parents have offered several times to help, but they've helped enough by letting me live at home rent free :) My bro has also offered some money (his I really don't mind taking since all of my SIL's family will be attending 9 adults- 3 kids, haha!)
            none have given us an actual figure, but we are not depending on this $$.

            We gave ourselves almost 2 years to save before the wedding. So far we've paid about $6000 so far on deposits for our location, band, photog; i orded about 200 starfish, 150 shot glasses with our logo..

            and we've saved and additional $8000 so far. Phew... my god, this is the first I've totaled these up!

            And like Christine, we are having a large wedding - anywhere between 150-200 ppl..

              My father is the same way. He said there is no way he could not pay for his first born daughters wedding. We are paying for FH attire, gm shirts, bm shoes & jewlery, OOT bags, our honeymoon and airefare. FI's parents are paying for AHR, he is the only child so they insisted as well.

                We're paying for everything ourselves. Both of our dads are deceased and we won't accept money from our moms. We're actually paying for our moms to go to Jamaica. That being said, I'm mainly using the money I got from my dad's estate to pay for everything, so I guess my dad is paying in his own way:)

                  Jeff's parents gave us 10k, we spent more than half of that paying to get MY parents there! We paid for the rest, saved & put a little on credit cards with 0% interest that we're paying off now.
