One of the earliest and biggest conundrums you'll encounter when you’re planning a wedding is figuring out who pays for what. There are lots of different ways to divvy things up, so share your own perspective!

If you had a bridal or wedding shower, who hosted and paid?

    As of right now, my aunt is going to pay for one of my bridal showers. I still have yet to figure out the other showers, so who knows!

    I have no clue, it was a surprise shower at my aunts house. I feel like my aunt, cousin and mom split the cost of food.

    My mom is sorta “hosting”, but basically the day before I get married us gals are going for lunch and I’m pretty sure everyone will pay for their own lunch, it’s nothing fancy Smiley smile

    My mom has hosted the bridal showers for my sisters in the past and intends to for mine as well, though I will likely help her.

    Since I live across the country from my family and most of the guests, I won't have a bridal shower. I'm actually quite happy about that, as I find those events a tad awkward and uncomfortable.

    I didn't have one so no one. We did host a get together at my mum's where we covered the food though.

    My mum and her friends hosted and paid for most the shower which was very generous.

    I picked up a few things for it.

    I have been booted from any bridal shower planning, so it will be my mom, FMIL, MOH and bridesmaids (most of my bridesmaids are my sisters).

    I skipped on a bridal shower. I did have an engagement party though, which my parents hosted in their backyard.

    My aunt is planning it with my cousin's help, but so far it seems as though she's taking care of everything.

    My mom will be hosting it with some family meme era and my bridesmaids. Nothing fancy so hopefully not gonna cost them much other than food.

    I can't see this being a really expensive thing (as compared to the social), so I would like to think that I could pay for it? Just send me a bill and plan it for me? I know that money is tight on one of his parents so I would feel bad expecting them to chip in when I'm just hoping that they can afford to pay their part in the "presentation" "expectation" (enough to pay for their meals).

    I’m hoping my family, his family and my wedding party can shoulder these costs! My brothers wife planned and paid for her own, and I really don’t want to do that!
