Is it tradition, thus expected?
Do you hope they do or are you the type who wants to pay for everything herself/himself?

In my culture you have to pay for the whole wedding I mean the man does and your parents won't help you pay for it if you can't afford it in our culture then you are not worthy of getting married.0

I wouldn't expect my mother to pay for my wedding. Our career paths are very different, and she will make considerably less than me. Besides that, I would never ask her to sacrifice in order to pay for my wedding.
It would be sweet, if she could pay for one thing, maybe my veil or something bouquet. But I wouldn't expect her to pay for my wedding.3
