Wedding budget

Marriage is a celebration of the greatness of love and life. When you decide to tie the knot, you want to turn this big decision into a special occasion and celebrate with a party for memories. You may be the one getting married, but having a party isn't that easy. In some cultures, as in most Asian cultures, marriage is not simply a celebration of two souls coming together. It is more like the joining of two families so that the parents of the bride and groom are part of (and sometimes, their business too!) the celebrations. Often in Asian cultures, weddings are also a symbol of social status by presenting more than a thousand people on the guest list.

So, when a wedding is a celebration of the bride and groom and both sides of the family, who should bear this cost? The answer to that question depends on what culture you are married to. For example in India, all costs will be borne by the bride's family. But in Indonesian culture, usually, the groom's family will take care of all the costs spent on the wedding. However, times have changed. Many young couples dare to take on this responsibility for the smooth running of the celebration. They prefer to work hard and save a lot for their wedding needs, so making a wedding an opportunity to celebrate their hard work can reduce the burden on the family.

In today's society, there are no longer any set rules about who should pay for a wedding. Depending on the culture, the wedding ceremony can be hosted and borne exclusively by the bride and groom, or it can be a joint effort, between the bride and her family. The bride and groom can provide part of the costs needed, while their parents are quite helpful by only taking care of the wedding dress, drinks served, or simply paying for their children a honeymoon vacation. However, when marriage is considered a family affair, the two families must meet to find out what is convenient for them, and determine clearly to whom the burden of the wedding ceremony will be borne.
