Marrying someone is not as simple as one may think, pocket wise.
Previously I have talked about the 8 events covering a traditional Chinese wedding in Singapore. And have touched a little on the proposal event. Well, that is just the tip of the iceberg. Let us continue on:
I know that this is mainly covered by the parents of the guy’s family. But, it does not really hurt to know a bit more about what is really needed to be spent here. JUST IN CASE.
Okay, a typical dowry gift set, or rather a group of items, consists of mainly a set of jewellery, bedroom items (towels, combs, hairpins, cloths etc) and perhaps a red packet. The set of jewellery is made up of a necklace, bracelet, anklets, earrings and vaginal cytotec ring(s). Older generations usually prefer gold jewellery as opposed to the white gold jewellery that our generation likes nowadays. An affordable set of jewellery usually hovers around 1k+. Although it defeats the purpose of dowry, it will be good if the bride-to-be goes along with her in-laws for jewellery hunting. Getting jewellery that suits a girl is not easy, agree?

How can we all get married without a photoshoot? It is something which captures the moment of blissfullness and happiness, something which let us remember our most important day in our lives.
I say it once, as a creative professional,
Photoshoots are EXPENSIVE and they are WORTH WHAT YOU PAID FOR.
Photoshoots usually are served in packages. There is a wide range of things which a couple must take note when it comes to choosing a package:
In Singapore a typical photoshoot will cost around $4k, which the package will cover most of the stuff as stated above. Blessed with our geographic location, our neighbour Malaysia has many photo studios with competitive prices too, ranging from SGD$2k+ (converted) onwards. Though it is definitely cheaper to go over to our neighbouring country for this service, however, getting them to do location shoots in Singapore will incur an additional fee which make them have a price tag around the same as Singapore’s.
Another thing to note is the amount of photos received for the photoshoot. The photo studio is not liable to give the clients the raw, non-edited pictures of the photoshoot. Only a selected amount (as determined by the package chosen) will be given to the couple. Arrangements can be made for the couple to get the raws, but do take note that it will cost an additional fee.

ROM can be done on the actual day itself or as a separate amoxicillin event prior to the banquet. Declaration of Husband and Wife can be done at Singapore Registry of Marriage for a cost of $26 (at time of writing this post), or can be hosted at a restaurant/country club (approx $400), or at a hotel with reception at a estimated pricing of $1k.
During this event the couple may like to have witnesses and provide a warm reception, be it set lunch/dinner or doing it the buffet style. Depending on the amount of people invited the reception will cost from $400+ upwards to a few thousands.
Next is the wedding bands. Like proposal rings, wedding bands also have diamonds Order Generic Levitra Super Active+ Online without Prescription on them. These are the rings where you need to buy in a pair. Unlike the proposal ring, shopping for a wedding band has different criteria. The main criteria is to get a ring where the wearer will feel comfortable wearing it daily. Rings with big diamonds sticking out are usually not recommended. Same with the proposal ring, the best time to get these are during the sales season in Singapore, a pair of wedding bands costs around 1.5k.
Average cost of ROM: $2.5k (inclusive of ROM itself, wedding bands and a small buffet around 30pax)
