Parents and Wedding Costs

Are parents in contemporary society obliged to contribute money towards their childs wedding, regardless of the childs gender? Or should children be independent and pay for it all on their own?

In our culture, it is the bride's parents who have to pay for the wedding. But I personally feel that the bride and groom should take care of it. The parents can help if they want to. In India, most of the weddings have become extravagant affairs with each family trying to show their wealth which I think is very stupid....throwing away all that money just to keep up with the Joneses.
