If one is agreeing to have both an American wedding & an Indian wedding to satisfy the wishes of one's future in-laws, is the bride expected to pay for both weddings, or just the American one?
I have agreed to have both an American ceremony & an Indian ceremony when the time comes for my boyfriend & I to get married. As I’m sure many of you know from my previous questions, I am American & he is Indian. With the average wedding costing $28,000, there’s no WAY I can afford to pay for both, so since I’m only doing the Indian ceremony to appease his side of the family, is it still my responsibility for my family to foot the bill for both? Or can his family pay for the other one?
