Tradition rarely dictates what happens in a wedding these days. Less than 40% of weddings are paid for along traditional lines. A majority of couples are paying for their own special day with parents pitching in where they wish. Most brides say that their parents are coming up with a cash contribution towards the wedding rather than footing the bill for the entire thing.
Most couples these days plan weddings which must be financed and most of them finance it themselves. You should contribute what you wish to contribute and feel no obligation to follow anyone else's guidelines.
