Good morning everyone in Huntington Beach and abroad! I received a note that has a fantastic wedding day tip from my good friends at Elegala.com and I really wanted to share with you this week.
So let’s say you’re an Orange County bride looking to make sure your doing your best to work within some wedding budget etiquette. Having planned my own wedding and been to my share of weddings in Orange County, Los Angeles, and around the country, I think that this list is really creative and will help you get the most out of your wedding day costs and help keep from ruffling any feathers.
But before I present you with this week’s wedding tip and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Orange County Wedding Photographer in Huntington Beach, California, feel free to Contact Me on the Website or send me an email direct at email@example.com.

So without further ado, here are some fantastic wedding budget etiquette ideas that aren’t dull and uninspired & have a super Baby Friday – cheers!
Tradition states that the bride’s parents are responsible for fronting the bill for the wedding reception; these days, the bride’s parents, groom’s parents, and the couple themselves all contribute to the wedding pool. That said, it helps to come to the budgeting table prepped with the traditional list of which side pays for what. These conventional “rules” can then be adjusted according to your financial situations:
