    Cost of Wedding in Singapore , Budget , Desirable and EXTRAVAGANT!

    Found this interesting article on the cost of wedding in Singapore ...

    A modern wedding can be broken down into:
    1) Wedding Package - this includes wedding gowns, studio and outdoor shoots, wedding albums and wedding cars.

    2) Wedding Bands - rings the couple put on each others’ fingers after saying their vows.

    3) Solemnization - ceremony of saying your vows, exchanging rings and being married by a Justice of the Peace.

    4) Videographer & Photographer - for your special day

    5) Wedding Banquet - a wedding lunch or dinner, sometimes a buffet.

    6) Honeymoon - couple’s time all alone to maybe help in Singapore’s population crisis, usually overseas.

    BUDGET WEDDING:
    1) Wedding Package - $1,500 and below

    2) Wedding Bands - $500 and below, maybe a ring with a diamond for the lady and a normal ring for the groom

    3) Solemnization - Simple affair at the Registry of Marriages costs just $26.

    4) Videographer & Photographer - $200 and below, get some friends to volunteer and remember the red packets

    5) Wedding Banquet - $1000 and below. A lunch buffet at home or at the venue of solemnization inviting only relatives and close friends.

    6) Honeymoon - $1,000, a real romantic trip to nearby island resorts like Bali, did i just recommend Bali again ha, just be safe people.

    Total Costs: About $4,000
    (Since we will very likely break even from the red packets, the actual costs could be much less)


    DESIRABLE WEDDING:
    1) Wedding Package - $3,500 and below, wedding gowns, evening gowns, an album and a big photo frame.

    2) Wedding Bands - $2,000 and below

    3) Solemnization - $1,500 and below, booking a beautiful little church such as the Armenian Church along Hill Street.

    4) Videographer & Photographer - $3,000 and below, semi pros to pros, the photos and video should keep you happy for years to come.

    5) Wedding Banquet - $500 to 1,000 a table. Weekdays are usually cheaper than Weekends, Lunches are usually cheaper than Dinners. A usual 5 Star hotel banquet will cost $900++ per table.

    6) Honeymoon - $6,000, a nice trip to Japan’s most beautiful cities visiting Hello Kitty Land, Mount Fuji and Disney Sea.

    Total Costs: About $16,000 excluding banquet cost
    (Based on 30 tables, banquet costs will be about $35,000 and below, pray that you break even)

    EXTRAVAGANT WEDDING:
    1) Wedding Package - $7,000 and above, fly to Hong Kong(Package by My Dream Wedding) or Taiwan complete with a Photographer.

    2) Wedding Bands - $10,000 and above, custom made wedding bands with gems from Cartier

    3) Solemnization - $10,000 and above, Chijmes Hall with 150-250 of your special guests

    4) Wedding Banquet - $1,688++ a table gets you St Regis on a weekend

    5) Videographer & Photographer - $6,000 and above, professional videographer with express edits and professional photographer with 2 cameras for the entire day

    6) Honeymoon - $20,000 and above, fly Singapore Airlines Business Class to France and hop over to Monte Carlo to roll some dice, catch F1 and take to the high seas on a private yacht

    Total Costs: About $53,000 excluding banquet cost
    (Based on 50 tables, banquet costs will be about $100,000 and above)

    I know a couple who spend close to 70K for their wedding. I keeping to my 30K budget so far so good

  4. #4
    hmmmm got wedding package below $1.5k ?? with photos & all??
    I took 1 in JB after bargaining (end up only with 1 album and 1 large protrait) I still need to pay about $1,600.

  5. #5
    my HTB & i are currently in the 70K zone, my HTB thinks we will hit the 100K mark.

    i dont think there is such a package in singapore. my HTB wanted to take thai wedding photos, peranakan wedding photos plus the usual wedding photos. but the cost adds up (including air tix are crazy!)

    I also think it is rather impossible to get it below $1.5.

    Bear in mind, you have to go at least in and out 6-8 times, do you think it is worth the effort.

    I have a colleague who signed with a BS in JB because her FH think is cheap but she now like curse and swear because of all the trouble she has to go thru.

    Getting married is once in a lifetime, I dun think it worth saving that 1-2K. Just dun go for a holiday for one year and that is how much you save.

    it really depends on the couple's budget. I mean it's easily a saving of like S$1.5 if you get your BS in JB compared to Singapore why not.

    For us though our budget is not much, but i think it was a bit of an impulse when i sign the JB package. cos prior to this I already sign up a Singapore package. but because i wanted to take photo at a particular place the JB studio offer I blew my budget a little. Hahahah

    FYI, my package in Singapore cos S$3388 and JB cost another S$1,600 meaning just taking photos ALONE cost us S$4,988 (OMG I just use calculator and it return me with this shocking figure!!). is off my initial budget of S$4,500 (to include hiring cost for actual day photography).

    Jialat... need to cut budget at some other place le...

    U mean to say, you signed up for 2 packages already? one in singapore and one in JB?

    yah loh... crazy right. hahahaha

    so now i'm thinking should i just stick to the JB studio for my photoshots.

    jialat leh... dilemma...

    cos if i leave it as it is, my sunk cost is nearly $5k.

    whereas if i switch to take photo in JB and actual day rent gown in Singapore probably can reduce the cost. The full package for the JB studio is RM4,688. then in SIN i pay S$1k le, i can ask if can which to only rent gown and suit and if possible to include AD photography. which the cost will approximately be S$3,000 - S$3,500.
