Who Pays For the Wedding In Modern Times?

IT'S NOT JUST MOM OR DAD footing the bill.

THE STATS: 72% of US couples pay for all or part of their wedding themselves.

GET SPLENDID: More couples paying out of their own pockets means that potential wedding budget money is likely competing with other financial priorities: investments, retirement, a new home purchase, and even taking care of other people (1 in 5 millennials are financially responsible for family members outside their household).
