I am 22 (will be 23 in two days, eeeek!) and my fiancé is 22. We decided on a DW because really it saves ALOT of money. (Not including the cost of our stay at our resort, our wedding should cost between 10-15k.) I was just wondering for everyone else on here who is having a DW, who is footing the bill? The reason I ask is, as an only child with parents who make a good amount of money…they are hardly helping pay for any of the wedding. I am grateful for any financial assistance so I do not complain, I work hard for what I want and can pay my own way if need be. However, many of our close friends and family who have asked us if we are paying for our own wedding (Which we are paying for almost all of it), are SHOCKED that my parents are not helping out hardly at all. Is it still typical for the brides parents to pay for a wedding? I hope this question does not come off as tacky asking about financials…but I am very curious to know if anyone else is in the same situation. We are both fairly young still, and while we both have graduated college, I would think being fairly new in the career world my parents would have helped us more. :/ sigh.
