From the rehearsal dinner to the post-wedding brunch, weddings are often whole-weekend affairs—but who should host what? Our wedding etiquette experts are here to answer your entertaining questions in our daily post.

Who is supposed to take care of the post-wedding brunch? My parents assumed his parents would pay for it, but they haven't said a word!

When it comes to any post-wedding festivities, there are no rules. Time is of the essence, though, so you need to address the issue now. If you were expecting his parents to pay, have your fiancé ask them directly. If they decline, you'll have to figure out another plan, and perhaps host the gathering yourselves. And remember, the brunch menu can be as simple and inexpensive as bagels and coffee for your nearest and dearest and the out-of-towners.
