Really, Who Should Pay For The Wedding
Really, Who Should Pay For The Wedding

In many cultures a bride’s family pays for the wedding, but it’s 2013 and not so many people do things the old school way, many especially any father who has a daughter or two will be happy to know that society is now more than willing to share the cost with him.

Less than one in ten couples expect the bride’s parents to pay for their wedding as tradition dictates.

A poll of 2,031 adults found that 52 percent would pay for their big day themselves.

And some 37 percent said they thought both sets of parents would share the cost.

And just under one in 10 (nine percent) would adopt a more traditional approach and expect the bride’s parents to pay for their wedding.

John Brady, head of commercial at John Lewis Insurance, said: “This change may have come about because weddings are getting more expensive, meaning people are less willing to burden the bride’s parents with the whole cost.

“It might also be that the increasing age of marrying couples has given them greater financial independence.

“Either way, it can never be a bad thing if couples are thinking seriously about how their wedding will be funded well in advance of the big day.”

A total of 2,031 UK adults were surveyed by ICM between April 20 and 27 last year for the John Lewis Insurance Wedding Report.

Whoop that’s a relief.
