Wedding Planning Guide | Simply Devine Wedding and Events

Rebecca Steele from Simply Devine Wedding and Events breaks down and gives you a guide to who pays for what for the wedding.

You’ve heard the tradition of the bride’s parents footing the entire wedding bill, right? While there are still families that stick closely to the old fashioned rules, times have definitely changed. No longer do parents have to “bribe” a man to take a daughter off their hands (which is nice). These days, figuring out who pays for what at a wedding is literally the thousand dollar question. Nailing down the answer is a major key to planning the big day, especially if all parties involved discuss budget limits from the beginning.
So how do you do that? I recommend three ways.

Pony up. If you and your honey are established in your careers and/or in a position to pay for the wedding, by all means set a budget and do so. Especially if your parents are NOT in a position to do it, and even more especially if this is not your first wedding.

Meet in the middle. If you aren’t exactly swimming in extra cash, figure out how much you and your fiancé can afford. Then, sit down with all the parents and talk about what you’re able to contribute and find out if they’re willing to help. Put all these figures together and you’ve got yourself a wedding budget (bring it to me and I’ll show you the best way to spend it).
Ask mom and dad. This route is designed for the young, the broke and especially for the young AND the broke. If you truly can’t afford a wedding, you either take out a bank loan or you ask your family for help. When both sets of parents are involved in paying for the wedding, there are some etiquette rules you can follow…however, these are not hard and fast rules. You can bend them, stretch them or break them to fit your day. Here goes:

The bride’s family pays for:
– Reception costs, including food, music, decorations, rental fees and entertainment
– Ceremony costs including rental fees, decorations
– Flowers for ceremony and reception
– The bride’s wedding dress and accessories
– Invitations, announcements, programs and stamps
– Favors
– Photography
– Transportation
– Their own attire and travel expenses

The groom’s family pays for:
– The rehearsal dinner, including food, invitations, decorations and entertainment
– Their own attire and travel expenses
– A wedding present
The bride pays for:
– The groom’s wedding ring
– Her hair, makeup, beauty treatments
– Gifts for her attendants
– Sometimes accommodations for any out-of-town bridesmaids

The groom pays for:
– The marriage license
– The bride’s engagement ring and wedding ring
– The honeymoon
– Gifts for his attendants
– Corsages for the mothers and grandmothers
– Boutonnieres for men in the wedding party
– Sometimes accommodation for any out-of-town groomsmen
– Fee for the Officiant

Wedding Planning Guide | Simply Devine Wedding and Events

Yes, I know the list of wedding costs is worthy of a stroke. Which is why it’s so very important to have the whole Who Pays For What conversation right away. Assume nothing. Demand nothing. Ask a lot of questions. Write down the answers and do some math. And if you really want to make the most of your wedding budget, do yourself a favor and ask for my help. I know the short-cuts, I have money-saving secrets and I’ve done this about a zillion times. Plus, I’m kind of fun to have around.

At your reception, you’d ideally be dancing the night away barefoot to celebrate your new marriage. But what happens if your guests are snoozing or boozing too much? Let’s think back to our college days when we would go out on a Friday night. We’d have a great time with old friends, meet some new friends, dance our shoes off and then what? Go to the nearest McDonald’s or the neighborhood’s best pizza place for a late night snack! After you’ve scarfed down your Big Mac in 30 seconds, you feel like you have the energy to take on the world or at least make it to your bed.

So what does this flashback have to do with your wedding reception? You don’t want your guests sleeping before the night is over so why not opt to have late night snacks served at your reception? Whether you prefer salty, sweet, or some childhood favorites the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown can satisfy those cravings!

Wedding Popcorn | Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Sioux Falls

For the salt-lovers, a popcorn bar would be a must. Popcorn can come in many different flavors from butter to dill with everything in between. You can order customized popcorn bags to serve the popcorn in as a party favor to your guests. Everyone loves popcorn and a popcorn bar would never disappoint.

Wedding Smores Bar | Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Sioux Falls

Not feeling so salty? You can also go with a sweet option like a S’more Station! Who doesn’t love a childhood favorite? Set up a station for guests to roast their own ‘mallows, construct their S’mores, and don’t forget the napkins. S’mores are delicious but can get messy. Not only will you please your guests with a sweet tooth, but cleaning marshmallow off of your loved ones face can always make for some fun memories.

Wedding Sliders | Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Sioux Falls

Maybe you just want to go all-out on the late night snacks and make a junk food feast! You can include mini-sliders, French fries and cheese balls. If you can dream it, we can do it. Offer your guests a Tailgate-esque late night snack and their stomachs will thank you dearly.

Whether you have a sweet tooth, crave those salty snacks, or live for junk food, late night snacks are the perfect choice at your reception! Not only will your guests thank you, but your stomach will too!
