Weddings are some of my favorite events to plan and work, but I will be totally honest - the bill can get a little high. Most brides have their wedding planned out to a "T" when they get engaged, but unfortunately they don't know what a majority of their dream wedding costs. Some parents will create a wedding fund for their kids, just like they do for college, to help pay for their child's wedding day. Others may have an unlimited budget, but that is not always the case. To help with budgeting and managing the wedding fiances I have put together, with the help from The Knot, a list of who traditionally pays for what. **Please take into mind that anyone can pay for anything, but this is just how it is done traditionally.
