Once you have decided to get married, the question of budget and wedding etiquette comes into play. What is the proper wedding etiquette when it comes to people paying for a wedding? As time goes on the lines seem to get even more blurry, making wedding etiquette a constantly changing, and slippery, slope.
Wedding etiquette, in the traditional sense, says that the bride's family must pay for a number of things. Now, this does not have to be the case, but if you are following traditional standards then the bride's family will be responsible for the following items:
Such things as a church janitor, reception hall fee, catering, wedding photography, wedding video, orchestra (or band or DJ), wedding cake and wedding favors are all the domain of the bride's family under standard wedding etiquette. This is, of course, only a guideline of a few of the things the bride's family should be paying for.
On of the most important items that the groom is responsible for, in a traditional wedding etiquette scenario, is the bride's bouquet. The bride's bouquet can be a tough task for any man to create, so there are services that can do this for him. Visiting a flower shop will yield numerous ideas, and the people there can make the bouquet themselves.
These are just a few of the things under the domain of wedding etiquette. If you are unsure of what should be purchased by whom, you can check on the Internet to find out more information. Below this paragraph is a link to a website that offers advice on wedding etiquette in the traditional sense.
Wedding etiquette is one of the roughest parts of a wedding to deal with. Because the times have changed, along with gender roles, wedding etiquette has become more convoluted than ever. If you are unsure, then it is always best to forget wedding etiquette and parcel out responsibility in a fair manner.
