Wedding season is in full swing now that Spring has arrived!

That means tons of planning, purchasing and deciding who is paying for all of those purchases!  It kind of depends on you, your fiance and both of your families actually.  I know for me, my now-husband and I paid for almost everything, with my Mom and my Mother-In-Law helping out where they could.  If you're planning to do things in a traditional way and are unsure who is financially responsible for what, PopSugar did an article on this very topic, so this can help!
