Who Pays For Wedding Flowers?
Who is supposed to pay for the wedding flowers?
Answer: In today's world, no hard fast rules apply like many years ago. Nowadays, it depends on the situation at hand. If the bride orders the flowers then she can pay for them and let the groom or his family pay for something else or to simplify things, all expenses could be totaled up and split right down the middle.
However, if you want to use traditional guidelines, the groom pays for his bride's bouquet and the boutonnieres of all of the male attendants, such as the groomsmen, ushers, the fathers of the bride and groom, the corsages for the mothers of the bride and groom, and the boutonnieres for the grandfathers and the corsages for the grandmothers.
The groom's family pays for the rehearsal dinner and any flower arrangements that are used at the rehearsal dinner. The bride's family pays for the bouquets of the bridesmaids, the flower girl flowers, the flowers used in the church or location of the ceremony and the reception flower decorations.
