Who Pays for Flowers?

I know that who pays for what rules are basically thrown out the window anymore, but I was wondering if the Groom's family pays for the flowers?? Thanks!

    I thought the grooms family was just the rehearsal dinner and bar at the reception.  We went pretty traditional and my mother paid for all of the flowers.

    I heard originally that they pay for the bride's bouquet.  But I think most brides tend to pay for flowers now on their side.  My future MIL is footing the bill though because they aren't big drinkers and are out of town so kind of let the reception be my dad's deal rather than paying for the alcohol.  Instead they are picking up some other large items like flowers, photography, and transportation in addition to the rehearsal dinner.  I would just talk with everyone and have people paying for what they are comfortable with.  That's what has worked for us so far.

    I am paying for the wedding flowers. My parents are paying for the reception (they give a lump sum amount) and his parents are paying for the rehearsal dinner and alcohol.

    Traditionally the grooms family pays for Officiants fee/gatuity Grooms formal wear All corsages and boutonnieres Brides bouquet (not the tossing) Grooms cake Rehearsal dinner marriage license/prenup Brides/groomsmen gifts I know you didn't ask for that but I had the book sitting here so I thought it was interesting to list them all, I didn't realize it was so many things.

    DH and I paid for the flowers (as well as most of the whole wedding and the entire reception) ourselves. His family paid for the rehearsal dinner (though we planned it b/c they live OOT) and ceremony musicians. I think that's it.

    Um...you?I wouldn't assume the groom's family will pay for anything beyond what they may or may not have stated previously.
