In Spain, these costs are handled by various sponsors, often godparents who are honored during the ceremony for their contributions. In Korea, the bride and her family pay for the cost of the wedding.
What is the groom’s family supposed to pay for?
Tradition dictates that the groom’s family pays for the full cost of the rehearsal dinner, even though the bride’s family and friends attend the event as well. That includes food, drink, venue fees, entertainment, and transportation. Often the groom’s family cherishes this responsibility.
Who buys the bride’s dress?
Bride and family pay for bride’s dress, veil, accessories and trousseau (read: lingerie and honeymoon clothes). Groom and family pay for groom’s outfit. All attendants pay for their own clothing, including shoes.
How long do Spanish weddings last?
Whereas your typical wedding in the US might last around 5-6 hours, Spanish weddings can last for 12+ hours. A daytime wedding with a ceremony at noon will probably last until midnight at least.
