I’m getting married again and wondering if me and my fiance will be expected to pay for the whole thing or if it’s ok to ask my parents for help. Again!


If it’s a second marriage for you both, then bride and groom are usually expected to pick up the tab. You could always ask your parents how they feel about helping you out, they do just want you to be happy, though they’re likely to say no!
