Congratulations! You and your significant other have made plans to seal the deal with marriage. But now, what?
In Singapore, an average wedding is expected to set couples back by at least S$30,000 to S$50,000, excluding the cost of their honeymoon. Unless you’re rolling in cash, one of the biggest factors a couple must keep in mind when planning for their big day is how much it is all going to cost. From booking your photographer to buying the perfect gown and suit to choosing your wedding venue, every little bit adds up.
It can get especially tricky when you have other financial commitments as well, such as raising kids and paying off your BTO.
Obviously, coming up with a budget and figuring out how to stick to it is no mean feat. You’ll need to draw up excel spreadsheets (oh, the horror!) and prepare for unexpected costs, which we would touch on later in this cost guide. We know, it’s hard work. But precise planning not only ensures that you’ll get the wedding of your dreams, but also emerge from it debt-free.
Here’s the ultimate cost guide to weddings in Singapore, and how much you should expect to pay for each service.
