Wedding Tip Of The Week

Good Morning Everyone! We’ve got a great Wedding Tip Of The Week for you from Victoria at BellaOnline; The Voice Of Women.  Victoria shares her opinion of etiquette about paying for the Wedding.  Basically… who pays for what.

We hope you’re having a great start to your new year & find some interesting and helpful tips in this week’s Wedding Tip Of The Week – cheers!

With modern day etiquette changing the rules of wedding planning and confusing everyone about who should pay for what when it comes to your wedding day, you’re going to need a handy checklist to see how it traditionally works.
