Marrying someone you love nowadays isn’t as simple as saying “I do” as many of us might think. To those who are still in dreamland, wake up zomg.

This post is targetted to those who are considering marriage. It is a rough guideline as to the estimate of how much money the couple need to shell out for the event.
Let’s take a look at a typical, traditional Chinese wedding. It consists of mainly a few events: dowry discussion, tea ceremony, banquet.

Guys how are you planning to propose to your loved ones? As told to me by wendy…. 9 out of 10 guys do not know that a proposal ring is different from the wedding band (Sad to say I am one of them too lolx).

Most girls do prefer a better buying antibiotics online proposal over a more expensive ring. Rings can be upgraded in future, but the proposal is only done once.
A proposal ring can cost as little as a couple of hundreds (for lab-grown diamonds) to tens of thousands.

Best times to get the proposal ring are during seasons like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Great Singapore Sale. These are the times when the rings have a big 20-50% discount slapped onto them.
Average cost of proposal: $2k (for a 3k+ diamond ring with discount :3)
