(a) In General

Unless otherwise ordered by the court, the prevailing party shall be entitled to costs other than attorney's fees.  The party in whose favor a judgment or decree for costs is awarded or allowed by law, and who claims costs, shall within twenty-one (21) days after the time for appeal has expired or within twenty-one (21) days after the issuance of the mandate of the appellate court serve on the attorney for the adverse party and file with the clerk a bill of costs.  Failure to comply with these time limitations shall constitute a waiver of costs, unless the court otherwise orders or counsel are able to agree on the payment of costs.  In the latter case, no bill of costs need be filed.
