Groom's Parents Go Back to Previous Page Search this site

In the past, the groom’s parents have had little to do with the planning of the wedding but as today’s nuptials are more frequently financed by both families they must be more involved in the preparations.

It is a good idea to invite both sets of parents to get together, firstly to discuss budgets and who will pay for what, and secondly to talk decide what planning responsibilities the groom’s family can take to assist the bride’s family and avoid duplication of tasks.

The Grooms family traditionally pay for:

  • The rings
  • The groom and best man’s suit
  • The church or register office and marriage licence fees
  • Flowers for the wedding venue and reception
  • Bouquets and buttonholes for the wedding party
  • Transport to church for the groom and best man
  • Going away car for bride and groom
  • Bridesmaid's and best man's gifts
  • First night hotel and honeymoon
