The bulk is being split between my fiancee and I, and her Dad with my parents making a "significant" contribution, so it's sort of a 3 way split.
However as had been said before, it's our wedding not my parents (or hers) and it's mostly my Mum being a pain. Still think we've got most of it sort now. The church and venue are booked (one good thing is that the venue has a limit of 150 people anyway, so I can refuse my Mum's requests without feeling too bad.... "They can come if others can't") and as the Wedding is in Newcastle and I come from Somerset, we've promised to have a party in Somerset for all the elderly relatives who can't make it all the way to Newcastle after the event. I figure any of my Mum's randoms can come to that instead if they really want to.
The cake is going to be an M&S job, and we're probably going to ask a mate of mine to do the photos (We're paying, and he did the photos at my other friends wedding and did a good job too) so that's more savings. We're not doing favors or anything like that (Stupid idea imo) and we've limited Bridesmaids / Ushers to two each (plus my best man) so it's not too bad. Pissed off a lot of my mates though!
I reckon we'll just about keep it under £10k provide my Missus doesn't get too foolish with the £2500 designer wedding dress she's fallen in love with
