Who should pay, or who is paying for your wedding rehearsal dinner?
Typically/proper etiquette dictates that the groom's family pay for the rehearsal dinner.
It is up to the grooms family to pay for the rehearsal dinner. With the cost of weddings today, sometimes both the bride and grooms parents will split the cost of everything. Depends on the circumstances.
The whole idea of rehearsing the wedding dinner means that the wedding itself has taken back seat to the photographer and how the event looks - rather than the idea of two people coming together.
The last couple of weddings I attended were fluffy pink matched stationary and bridal gown nightmares.
The less rehearsal the better.
While tradition dictates that the Groom's father / family pay for it, it is common nowadays to split the cost of the rehearsal dinner, particularly if the costs of the wedding day are being shared. This can vary of course depending on circumstances.
...me? I'll pop for it...the separation agreement usually states 'hubby' pays for the divorce party...so I might as well pay for the wedding rehearsal dinner...it only seems fair.....
We didn't have one.
The week before the wedding we met with the celebrant at the park where we were to marry, decided which tree which person would walk past and what order then smiled, nodded and agree to see each other on the day...
In China we are expecting a village wedding - I hope there is no rehearsal as the celebrations and meals go on for three days sometimes !
...how long are the divorce parties?.........they must be longer! just kidding!
...and best wishes to you AP!
I calculate that I will not live long enough to get as far as divorce, and as Sukie is not only the most beautiful girl in China but also bright, charming and humorous, why would I want to ?
Traditionally it is the groom's family. However nowadays, people don't always cling to tradition for the tradition's sake.
this is true. I currently am planning one and paying for it.
since we have a lot of out of town/state guests, it's the bridal party plus out of town guests. we decided instead of a traditional sit down dinner with 70ish people :, it's more of a celebration with heavy hor d'ourvres (enough to feel like a meal), tropical fruit and both a Greek dessert and a chocolate fountain and a bar. we're calling it The Wedding's Eve. it's not cheap, but I feel it's worth it.
has anyone ever had a chocolate fountain before at their event?
it's really become the beginning of the wedding weekend festivities. all I can say, is I'm glad I have sons.. weddings are so expensive. [but I'm soon to have the most amazing daughter-in-law]

Do you believe families come together more for weddings or funerals?When people attend a wedding it seems that families sometimes segregate and become stressed out. On the other hand, when there is a funeral, families come together, bond and overcome previous issues. What do you think?
