Budget Breakdown: Who Pays for the Venue?


Budgeting for a wedding can be rather stressful, especially once you factor in asking relatives to pick up the bill. According to proper wedding etiquette, the bridal bill is split between both the bride and groom’s side; however, how do you determine who pays for what? According to Invitations by Dawn, the brides family is responsible for paying for the venue while the groom’s family is typically responsible for covering the costs of the marriage license and hosting the rehearsal dinner.
