Bride Footing the Wedding Bill
Wave goodbye to: Bride paying for the wedding.
Say hello to: Splitting the costs between the couple and maybe other family members who want to chip in. Unless you're Ivanka Trump, it's going to be hard footing the bill for the whole shebang. That's not to say that you should go around asking relatives to chip in (because they may feel pressured to do so), but talk with your partner about splitting the costs, and discuss to see if you want to get both your parents involved.
