Response: Today, couples and their parents are not as strict about
who pays for what. Though the brides familly traditionally
paid for the reception, today many parents of the bride and groom
each offer the couple a certain amount of money not necessarily the same amount
to be used toward the wedding expenses and spent as the couple chooses.
Many couples also pay for their own weddings if they can afford to,
or split the costs with their parents.
