Where does it say that the bride has to pay for anything?

More so "yikes" that the public has to pay for part of it...

Clear as day

"The AP reports that the Middleton family will contribute to the costs, as well, and that the public might be on the hook for security, but little else. Meanwhile, a survey by the Daily Mail found that 82 percent of respondents believe the Royal Family should pay almost all of the wedding expenses, and not taxpayers."

So what's the issue?

The Royal Family will be paying for the wedding, which means the Middletons are off the hook for coming up with a sizable chunk of change, since it's traditionally the bride's parents that pay for the wedding.

How is this any different than the wedding of Charles and Diana?

"According to the official website of the British Monarchy, "The Royal Family will pay for the wedding, following the precedents set by the marriages of The Prince and Princess of Wales in 1981 and Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip in 1947."

"The AP reports that the Middleton family will contribute to the costs, as well, and that the public might be on the hook for security, but little else."

Sounds like both families are contributing to the wedding, although the Royal Family will be taking the biggest chunk of it.

Like SR said, it is traditionally the brides family that pays for the wedding, so The Middleton family should be happy that they do not have to pay for all of it. Of course, a lot of couples pay for weddings with their own money and not their parents, so Prince William and Miss Middleton should be happy about that as well.

Considering that the public is only having to take care of security does seem fair. I mean, if anyone is going to do anything, it would be a public person, in a public place, so it is for their security as well as the Royal families.

Dictionary.com has a definition of the bolded word contribute that states "to be partly instrumental (in)". Both families are chipping in, I don't see a problem? Yeah, she fell in love with a man who requires lots of security and a huge venue but his family is helping pay for many parts of the event as well. You think that just because he is rich he must automatically pay for everything?
