n.— «Often the groom’s family pays for what’s known as FLOP—flowers, liquor, orchestra and photography/videography—and the bride’s family covers the reception. This usually comes out even, according to Rosenthal, especially since the bride’s family, usually local, has more guests than the groom’s family, often from out of town.» —“Who pays for what at today’s Jewish weddings?” by Jane Ullman Jewish Journal (New York City) Aug. 10, 2007.
