My parents paid for the bulk of it - basically the reception. In-laws paid for the open bar and we paid for dress, rings, accommodation, celebrant etc
Hubby and I paid for most of it. I had my dress made and the dress maker was a family friend and gifted me her time to make the dress, I paid for fabric and she quoted $400 to make the dress but then wouldn’t let me pay her. My parents paid for the cars as I wasn’t going to to bother hiring cars to transport the bridal party between ceremony and reception. But my mum insisted and offered to pay so I let her.
My parents paid for my dress. Our parents went halves in the bar tab. I'm pretty sure it was just the tab, not the reception, but I can't really remember. We were happy to pay for all of it.
We paid for all except the catering my parents insisted on that - it was still a budget wedding though
