According to tradition, this dinner must be held by the groom’s parents, because the bride’s parents must pay for all the other elements related to the wedding. But, since nowadays traditions are no longer respected and neither the bride’s nor the groom’s parents are no longer obliged to pay for anything at the wedding, this responsibility goes to whomever desires to take it. So, if the parents have enough money for this dinner they may pay for it, but if the bride and the groom have no problem in covering for this cost than this could be their responsibility, too.
