I am a bit confused on this one. I think both of the families pay for the wedding itself, and the church and registry office charge extra for taking care of all the paperwork. If you have any more specific information, I would love to know, as I am planning my wedding in Ecuador!
Do men pay for weddings in Ecuador?
Yes, men in Ecuador do usually pay for weddings. Although the amount they usually give is usually the same amount of money they would like to spend at the wedding (i.e., food/drinks, bridesmaids dresses, gifts for the bride and groom, etc.). There are some men who pay more than this, but it is not common.This is due to a couple of reasons. First, in many parts of Ecuador, it is still popular that the man pays for everything in the relationship (wedding and everything after). Second, it is also a way of showing respect to the bride’s family that the man pays for their daughter’s wedding.In both cases this may seem uncomfortable for some people, but that does not change the fact that it happens and it is accepted in many parts of Ecuador.
