I know most couples are paying for their own weddings these days. Do you split the cost 50/50 or do you take earnings into account? I'll probably end up paying for less than H2B becuase I earn less but then again he works a lot more
all our money goes into same account so we don't have the I earn this you earn that thing. So we are both paying equally for it!
H2B earns more than me but we still split everything 50/50...
We are saving 50/50 as we are both on the same money thereabouts, but if either one of us was earning more than the other I think the higher earner should contribute more...it's not a business, it's a relationship.
surely you would want to save as much as you could for your wedding, regardless of who earns what, IMO
50/50 here too - we look at the whole lot as our money anyway.. (except we do have our own accounts)
My Dad is paying for the reception, his parents are paying for the band, everything else is being split 50/50 between H2b and I.
neither. I'd say it will be close to 50/50 leaning more to him paying more. The reason for this is I pay the entire mortgage and am the higher earner so as a result have little or no savings. He has savings as he spends very little so can afford to put a bit more into the wedding.
We pool our money and don't analyse who's paying for what but as a results of pooling money the higher earner probably ends up paying more towards the wedding - not that either of us give a sh^t as we view things as 'ours' not 'mine' and just pay for everything out of our joint account.
H2B Earns more so he's paying for most. I just got a promotion in work so I am able to contribute more now. And spend more on my dress if needs be
I would say he will be paying for more, he is the higher earner, but I take care of the majority of the groceries and the day to day living expenses so he has more to spare.
But it's all 'ours' anyways, so doesn't really make a difference!
