What Does the Groom Pay for?

Chris Easter

What costs are grooms and their families traditionally expected to cover? Because every couple and every wedding is unique, chances are that your expenses will differ from the following list. However, it should be a good starting point to begin planning your wedding budget.

TMR Recommendation: It’s becoming much more common for couples to share wedding expenses. Talk with your fiancé, her family, and your family about who will be paying for what and how closely you’ll be following the traditional model.

Thousands of Satisfied Grooms and Groomsmen

Since 2008, we’ve been the go-to site for personalized, unique groomsmen gifts and wedding tips for men. We’re also proud to be the original groom’s gift registry.

I reached out to The Man Registry on a Saturday, just 7 days before my wedding, asking for help with my groomsmen gifts. I heard back within an hour and was able to get 8 personalized coolers in just 3 days. Ordering was easy and the quality was top notch. Would highly recommend The Man Registry!

The Man Registry is phenomenal. The customer service is exceptional - seriously. You send an e-mail and a person (a friendly one at that) actually responds within an hour. Also, gift options are diverse and plentiful so you'll be able to find what works best for you.
