You just recently got engaged to your significant other – and now what? Where should you go from here? Below, we list down 4 of the most commonly asked questions that many other brides and grooms like yourselves ask on a daily basis. If you have no clue where to start, here are our answers and suggestions to help kickstart your wedding journey.
How Do I Budget For My Wedding?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions that the majority of couples tend to worry about. After all, it is estimated that a typical wedding in Singapore costs around $40,000, and this is also largely dependent on the number of guests that you are planning to host. When creating a budget, think of what is most important to you and your fiancé and prioritize funds accordingly. Do you want stellar photography and videography for your wedding? Or an unforgettable wedding dress that you can take pictures in and remember for years to come? While certain costs can be downplayed, we highly recommend not skimping on the ones mentioned above.
Can I Break Tradition And Wear A Dress That Is Not White?
Considering that Singapore is still a fairly conservative country, many brides are often worried that they have to stick to the traditional white dress for their weddings. However, you can breathe a sigh of relief as this is no longer true and that it is completely up to you. Many brides are opting for bolder colours, whether it be for their wedding dress, décor or themes. If you are considering donning a more unique dinner dress in Singapore, why not browse through our The Galaxy collection that features dresses made up of reds, purples and blues.
How Do We Find The Best Wedding Venue?
Finding a good wedding venue is extremely important because not only will it affect your overall budget, it will also ultimately affect your wedding theme, décor, number of guests and entertainment. We always recommend first reaching out to several venues for quotes and then narrowing them down based on your budget. You can then visit the venues in person to get a sense of the ambience and feel of the place – most of the time you will know the right venue for you once you see it. Be sure to ask all the necessary questions, such as the total capacity of the venue, any additional charges for guest parking and alcohol, the payment schedule, gratuity etc. With a venue locked, the rest of your wedding will all fall in place in due time.
When Should I Start Shopping For My Wedding Dress?
It is completely normal to panic when it comes to finding the perfect dress. We advise getting started with plenty of research as far as one year in advance to get an idea of what you like. You should set aside a budget for your dress, with the final fittings and buying of your dress to be done at least 3 months before the wedding so as to allow for any last minute alterations.
