Who Pays For What?

Traditionally the Groom and the Groom’s parents pay for:

  • Rehearsal Dinner
  • Groom’s Attire
  • Alcohol at the Wedding (this is negotiable depending on which side drinks more and if there is a culture involved. Such as, if the groom is Armenian, they require full hard liquor on every table, in which case the groom’s family pays. If it is a normal American wedding with wine and beer with cocktails at just cocktail hour, then the bride’s family pays.)
  • Honeymoon
  • Marriage License
  • Rings
  • Officiant Fees


The Bride and Bride’s Parents pay for:

Everything else.
