Why Your Wedding Should Not Be The Most Expensive Day Of Your Life
Did you know that if you’re planning to have an “average” wedding of your dreams in a year’s time, you’ll need to save a minimum of $2,300 a month?
An “average” wedding in Singapore means:
- Wedding bands
- Banquet in a hotel
- A suit and wedding dresses (minimum two; one white and one evening)
- Pre-wedding and Actual day photography
- Bridal car
- Wedding invites
And this “average” wedding will cost you a grand total of $27,610.
But do you really need to throw a wedding banquet with all the bells and whistles?
Going to ROM to get a marriage certificate only cost you $42. Imagine what you could do with the rest of the money…
Read on to find out why your wedding is the most important day of your life, but it doesn’t have to be the most expensive.
