Traditionally, it’s the bride’s family that bears the financial burden of any organized transportation and parking, minus the expense of getting the groom and best man to the ceremony (the groom’s folks traditionally pick up the tab on this one).
Who travels with the bride to the wedding?
The bride and whomever will give her away travel in one car; her bridesmaids and perhaps mother travel in the second. After the ceremony, the bride and groom travel in one car, and the bridesmaids and groom’s-men travel in the second car together.
Does the mother of the bride travel with bridesmaids?
Does the mother of the bride travel with the bridesmaids. Traditionally yes, although the mother of the bride can be like the groom sometimes and forgotten in the transport arrangements for the wedding. So traditionally she would travel with the bridesmaids to the ceremony.
Does groom’s car have ribbons?
Generally, a white V-shaped ribbon tied to the hood of the car signifies the beginning of married life. There are rosettes on the door handle.
Who arrives first at a wedding?
Tradition dictates that the bride’s name always comes first, whether on Save the Date cards, wedding invitations or anything else. This is because the bride’s parents are usually the hosts, paying a greater share of the expenses. This affords the bride’s family the right to have their daughter’s name first.
What does the mother of the bride pay for?
Traditionally speaking, though, the bride’s family pays for the bulk of the wedding—venue, reception, photographer, flowers, etc. As such, the mother of the bride is typically more ‘in charge’ of these things (along with the bride, of course) than the mother of the groom is.
Do you show your mother in law your wedding dress?
Absolutely not. When it comes down to it, your wedding is about you and your fiancé. So if you’d rather go dress shopping with just your family and friends, go for it. If she seems hurt, find other ways to include her in the wedding.
