Wediquette Wednesday: How much of the flower cost is paid for by the groom's parents?

Each Wednesday, we tackle wedding etiquette. At times, it’s a reader question or one from a colleague, friend or family member and other times we’ll cover a popular issue. (Note: Questions may be edited for clarity and brevity.)

 

Question: My fiancé and I are trying to figure out our wedding budget and working into that what our parents are covering, so we know how much we have to cover, if anything. So far, we think we have everything figured out, except the flowers. How much of the flower cost is paid for by the groom's parents?

Answer: Traditionally, the groom’s parents pay for the bride's bouquet, corsages for mothers and grandmothers and boutonnieres for the men. The other florals are paid for by the bride’s parents. Or, in your case if the funding offered by your parents and his doesn’t cover it, the bill would be footed by you and your fiancé.
