What exactly are the groom's parents expected to pay for in a wedding? I am aware that the rehearsal dinner is one area, but have been told the groom's parents are also supposed to pay for the rental of the tuxedos?
Hi, You've asked a good question. Below I am listing the things that are traditionally
NOT paid for by the bride or her family.
(note this list is not meant to be used as a set of forced rules).  Each family, and individual's unique financial capabilities should be considered in an understanding and caring manner.  Never simply expect someone to pay for anything when you are aware it might cause a financial hardship on them.  Remember, It's your wedding, not theirs, and if you're not living at home, anything your parents, or his may contribute to at that point is a gift.
The groom and/or his family/party traditionally pay for the following:
1.) Rehearsal Dinner (paid for by groom's parents, and/or family)
2.) Bride's Bouquet (paid for by groom)
3.) Mother's Corsages (paid for by groom)
4.) Boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen, and ushers (paid for by groom)
5.) Marriage License (groom pays)
6.) Officiant Fee (groom pays)
7.) Groom's Cake (paid for by groom's family)
8.) Formal attire for best man, groomsmen, and ushers (they each traditionally pay for their own)
9.) Gloves/Ties/Ascots for Attendants (groom pays)
10.) Father of Groom Formal Wear (Groom's family pays)
11.) The Limousine Services (groom pays)
12.) Honeymoon Arrangements (groom pays) I hope this helps you.
