Wedding, who pays what ?

If you are wondering "who pays what" in a wedding, the following should help you. It should be noted that tradition has evolved towards a more equitable distribution of marriage expenses between families or even between future spouses. Find out here "who pays what" according to traditional wedding etiquette or new trends.

Who pays what - the bride's family.

In a traditional wedding, it is the bride's family who pays for the bride's dress and her accessories as well as the hair, makeup, dressing for children and bridesmaids, floral decoration and the reception of the bride’s guests. Finally, she also pays the photographer, the music, the possible rental of the vehicle for the transport of the couple.

Who pays what - the groom's family.

Just like the bride, the bridegroom's family bears the costs for his dress and that of the witnesses. They also pay for the wedding rings, the administrative expenses, the bride's bouquet, the reception of the groom’s guests, the envelope for the priest and his parish in case of marriage in the church. The husband's family also pays for honeymoon.

Who pays what - the shared costs.

The question "who pays what" does not arise for the shared costs, i.e the announcements, the renting of the reception room, music, guest gifts and gifts to witnesses, transportation of guests if needed.

Qui paie quoi - de nos jours. De nos jours le mariage est de plus en plus un événement non traditionnel et a souvent lieu plus tardivement. Donc même s’il n’y a pas de règle stricte à appliquer, il est de plus en plus courant que le futur couple assume lui-même les frais de noce et en souhaite une répartition plus égalitaire et réelle, sans tenir compte de l’origine des frais ou du nombre d’invités qu’il y aura de chaque côté. Les époux peuvent donc partager tous les frais du mariage liés à la réception et au voyage de noces. Les parents et les invités peuvent contribuer au voyage de noce ou à des achats que les futurs mariés peuvent mentionner dans une liste de mariage. En général, l’organisation parfaite d’un mariage est celle d’un mariage qui vous ressemble et les meilleurs choix sont ceux adaptés aux disponibilités économiques des futurs mariés.

Who pays what - nowadays.

Nowadays, marriage is more and more a non-traditional event and often takes place later. So even if there is no strict rule to apply, it is increasingly common for the future couple to assume the wedding expenses itself and want a more equal and real distribution, regardless of the activity or the number of guests there will be on each side. The spouses can therefore share all the wedding expenses related to the reception and the honeymoon. Parents and guests can contribute to the honeymoon or shopping that brides and grooms can mention in a wedding list. In general, the perfect organization of a wedding is that of a marriage that suits you and the best choices are those adapted to the financial means of the future bride and groom.
