Ask Wednesday

Dear Wednesday,
My fiancé and I come from different cultural backgrounds and we’re trying to figure out who pays for what. In my culture, the groom’s family pays and in his culture, the bride’s family pays. How can we compromise on this?

It’s best to consider who is financially able to contribute to the wedding rather than sticking to cultural traditions. As we discussed in our budget blog, have a conversation with both sets of parents to see how they would like to be involved. Also, consider your personal finances and discuss how much you and your fiancé can contribute toward the wedding.
– Wednesday
