Who do you think should pay for weddings? The girl's side of the family? The guy's? Both? Just the two getting married?
- assuming that you're gonna have a wedding ceremony/reception/gathering.. and you're not just going to get a marriage license. :)
Oh and I'm curious - for your family/culture/etc.. who traditionally pays for the wedding?
I'm Chinese, so typically the guy's side of the family pays for the wedding (the ceremony, the reception.. etc.) but the girl's side of the family pays for the gifts that you would give to your relatives (gift certificates for baked goods and what not) - the guy's side of the family also has to pay a dowry of sorts, but these days that tends to go toward the ceremony cost. Not sure if I'd follow this if I was getting married though.
