Who Pays for What?
Nowadays, there are no absolute rules about who pays for what. However, it is still helpful to know who traditionally assumes the various expenses. We cannot stress strongly enough how important it is to meet with your families at the beginning of your planning to determine a realistic budget and exactly who will be responsible for which expenses. This will ensure that there are no misunderstandings or hard feelings later. And remember, bills should be sent directly to the responsible party to avoid possible awkwardness in requesting money.
