Ok, now we should all remember that there actually use to be a
guideline to the payment plans of a wedding. Does anyone go by these
guidelines anymore though? NOT ANYMORE! You might ask, ďWhy is
that??One reason could be because weddings now days have grown to
be less traditional. Maybe, some of us never even really knew that
there was a guideline that existed. Letís take a look at these
guidelines and take a look at why maybe these guidelines donít come
into play anymore. Listed below is what each side would usually pay
Brideís side of the family:
Church (Organist, sexton, synagogue, and arrangements)
Clothing and Accessories (Brideís dress, veil, lingerie, bouquets
Essentials (Transportation of the bridal party, reception, food,
drinks, decorations, photographer, videographer, and announcements.
Groomís side of the family:
Groomís outfit, Brideís bouquet and going-away corsage, boutonnieres
for men, and corsages for mothers and grandmothers.
Dinner rehearsal and Bachelorís Dinner
Both of the brideís rings
Now that is a lot to cover! One last reason why couples donít follow
these guidelines anymore is that couples now days think itís unfair
for one side of the family to pay for most of the event.
Itís totally understandable why these traditional
guidelines arenít followed anymore but does that make your wedding
less traditional? Of course not!
