Who pays?

In today's wedding, it is common for the wedding couple to bear most, if not all, of the financial responsibility. Traditionally, however, the Bride's family is responsible for most of the wedding flowers, with a few items that are specifically the responsibility of the Groom's family.  Depending on the specifics of your wedding, the following guide may be helpful.
