The Parents of the Bride and Groom
The parents of the bride and groom come as part of the wedding package and their role is entirely dependent on how the couple decide to conduct their wedding planning arrangements.
Their influence is often directly proportional to their financial input, but the parents of both the bride and groom have important roles to play. The father of the bride traditionally makes a speech on the wedding day.
The relationship between the bride and her parents and, in turn, their relationship with their future son-in-law is also an important factor.
