How much and who pays for the wedding

In order to avoid disputes and conflicts about this, it will be appropriate to distribute spending in accordance with long-established traditions. As elsewhere, in European countries, parents provide material assistance in organizing the wedding of their children. Although lately, lovers have been striving to arrange weddings on their own, using bank loans. But still, most families consider it their duty to organize a gorgeous wedding for their children, and sometimes they decide who pays for the wedding without their participation. And that is wonderful. What will each family have to spend on?

The bride is expected to spend on:


  • Wedding ring for the groom.
  • Wedding Present for Groom.
  • Gifts for the groom's parents
  • If the parents are nonresident, the bride pays for the hotel room for them. As you can see, the expenses are not too large.
