Who Should Pay for a Wedding? — Survey of the Day
Tradition dictates that a bride's parents pay for a wedding.
But is that still the norm as nuptials become more and more costly and people are getting married at older and older ages?
According to a new poll of 2,031 adults by John Lewis Insurance it is not.
Fifty-two percent of the survey respondents said that they would pay for their wedding themselves, whereas 37 percent believe both sets of parents should split the costs. Only nine percent answered that only the bride's folks should pay for the big day.
