 Wedding Expenses & Sharing the Cost

Any good wedding budget begins with a discussion of what parts of the wedding day are important to the bride and groom and what is of lesser importance.  Once you have determined the "must haves" they become the guide for where your money will be targeted.  As the money dwindles, the "not so important" items can be trimmed back or cut altogether.  If there are more "must haves" than your budget allows, you will have to get creative.  See "50 Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding."

Each couple, and their family situation's are unique making dividing the cost of the wedding different for every couple.  However, traditionally the bulk of the cost of the wedding is divided between the brides father and the bridegroom.
