Are my fiance and I required to book and pay for the flights and hotel rooms for everyone in our wedding party?
"According to traditional etiquette, it's the party's responsbility to get themselves to the wedding, destination or not," says international wedding planner and chief executive officer of DestinationBride.com, Lisa Light. That said, if you know someone won't be able to afford the trip, "it's wonderful to offer to help out," says Light. If you are both discreet about it, it isn't necessary to extend that offer to anyone else. Though some etiquette sources say the couple pays for attendants' lodging, this is seldom followed. So if you book the rooms to save them the effort, be clear about who will pay.
