Are you and your fiancé(e) paying for the entire wedding on your own? Or are you getting a little help from family or friends?

    My fiance and I are paying for the majority of the wedding, however my mom has helped a good bit when she can! His mom has helped a bit too, she is doing the rehearsal dinner for us which is awesome!

    False. We paid it all ourselves. We had friends help with things like borrowing their stuff but financially it was all us

    My parents are paying for the catering and venue, but we are paying for the rest.

    False, it's being paid for 100% by us and we wouldn't want it any other way.

    True! Our parents are covering pretty much everything. I did buy some of the decorations, though. 😊

    True! We received gifts from our parents that helped that was 1000% unexpected. We planned the entire thing within our budget so it was needed but they insisted!

    True. Both our parents are helping us pay for the wedding for which we're very grateful. We are still paying for a lot of it ourselves though.

    Mostly true. My mom gave us the deposit money for our venue to get the ball rolling but we paid for the rest of the wedding.

    True, my mom paid for my dress, my dad paid for the reception venue (mostly inclusive) and the photographer, and my in-laws paid for the rehearsal dinner, the church ceremony (and everything that went with that), the flowers, the cake, the DJ, and some other small things. We had most of the big things taken care of by our family and we paid for the "small" things, which added up to around $5,000 and we paid for our honeymoon.

    False-ish my parents gave a small gift that accounted for about a little over 1% of the expenses soooo we financed around 99% of our wedding
