When you follow tradition, are all traditions followed?
I know that times have changed and people pay for weddings in all sorts of ways now. However, my parents are very traditional and offered to pay for the vast majority of my wedding. Because of this, they want my FH and his family to cover the traditional items that are their responsibility. My mom believes that the groom/groom's family should cover: rehearsal dinner, marriage license, my FH's tux, and the honeymoon.
I had never heard of either set of parents paying for a honeymoon before but my mom is adamant that when she got married (40 years ago) this was the norm. So my question is, for those who are following the traditional route, did the groom/his parents cover the cost of the honeymoon? All the articles online (the knot, etc...) say this is traditional, but this was new information to me. My mom feels that if she can pay for the entire wedding, his parents can pay a fraction of that cost for the honeymoon. This is money they easily have and would likely be fine spending, I just do not know if it is appropriate to ask.
Before I get comments about being privileged, ungrateful, or spoiled, please understand that my parents have always planned on paying for my wedding and I know that I am extremely blessed for this. I know it is not a given and that not everyone has this option. I do not take any of this for granted.
