Ask Siblings to Help Pay?
Question: I'm working out a budget for my wedding, and my parents are deceased. Would it be correct etiquette to ask my siblings, who are all 10 or more years older than I am, to help pay for the expenses that are usually paid for by the bride's parents?
Answer: by The Knot
Asking your siblings to help pay for your wedding really depends on your relationship with them. It’s not appropriate to expect them to stand in financially for your parents. But if they’ve been like parents to you, some may be willing — or may even offer — to help you out. Broach the subject by talking in person to the sibling or siblings you’re closest to, in order to find out if they are willing or able to help. While you certainly shouldn’t expect their financial assistance, you can expect their good wishes and emotional support.
