groom's parents paying for more than bride's parents
My fiance and I, my parents, and my fiance's parents are all chipping in on the cost of the wedding, but the groom's parents are paying significantly more for the wedding than anyone else. How do I handle who is hosting the reception? The bride's parents traditionally host, but they're not contributing as much to the cost of everything. If both sets of parents host, who makes a welcoming speech at the reception? Are the groom's parents still expected to pay for a groom's dinner on top of the majority of the cost of the reception? How do I handle this situation without making my parents feel badly that they weren't able to pay for more?
