We all know that fathers of the bride are expected to pick up the tab, but does that mean that the father of the groom sits back and enjoys a free cocktail paid for by his future daughter-in-law’s parents? Sorry dad’s, unless your little boy is marrying a little Ms. Gates or Ms. Buffett, you are probably going to responsible for a few things. The rehearsal dinner for starters. Wedding etiquette has the groom’s parent’s covering the tab for the rehearsal dinner and any accompanying cocktails. There is also the Honeymoon. A lot of times the parents of the groom will pitch in or pick up the tab of the honeymoon as well. Depending on the overtures spent for the wedding, a lot of families are opting to cut one check and letting the kids spend it as they wish. That seems to be a more amiable way to split the dough if you ask me.
