At What Age Should You Pay For Own Wedding?

At What Age Should You Pay For Your Own Wedding?

This question comes from the Weddings group in our TrèsSugar Community. Feel free to add your advice in the comments!

Let me just start with a little background: I'm 28.  My boyfriend is 34.  We'd like to get married sometime in the next two years or so.  We've been together for 6.5-ish years now.  My question is, and my boyfriend thought I should pose it here on Sugar, when are you too old to ask the father of the bride (my dad) to pay or help pay for the wedding

I know it's seen as traditional, but I feel like I'm kind of old at this point to ask for help.  We probably wouldn't get engaged for another year or so since we'd have to save up for a ring, and although the wedding that I want is pretty small I kind of feel 30-ish is old enough to pay for my own wedding, even if that means delaying it for another couple of years or so (recession = having trouble finding a job).  Anyways, any thoughts are appreciated.
