This is a blog on our effort in creating a different wedding celebration without breaking the bank. We want to get away from hotel ballroom, typical 8 course sit-down Chinese dinner and minimal/1-way interactions with guests (think photo-montage, pre-wedding shoot montage etc).

We thought of having a destination wedding in Bali with our closest friends and family with a get together celebration later with our colleagues and friends who cannot make it. However, a twist in fate dictates that it is not going to happen for now. Nevertheless, for those who is interested in having a destination wedding in Bali, you can head towards our Destination Wedding in Bali posts for inspirations and reviews. Even those who didn't or cannot have such plan can also take a look. The places we visited are BEAUTIFUL. 

Now we are working on a celebration in Singapore, making it as memorable, beautiful, interactive as possible. And of course with good food. Some of the criteria are:

The NO list:
  1. No hotel ballroom 
  2. No standard Chinese 8-course dinner 
  3. No 1st march in, 2nd march in, pre-wedding picture, childhood montage etc.
The MUST-HAVE list:
  1. Beautiful venue 
  2. Good food 
  3. Engaging layout and event flow so the guests can be interactive 
  4. Fit 100-200 pax. That's a big range, but we can always tailor our guests list according to our venue ;)
  5. Fit into the budget of $50K for everything including dresses, flowers etc 

This blog will record the venue and vendors we visited, and ideas we came out along the way. And similar to a lot of wedding blogs, this place will also be filled with lots of beautiful pictures of the venues, wedding dresses, flowers etc. You can follow my collections of inspiration at Pinterest.

I have also created a Facebook page to collect interesting wedding-related news and updates that are widely circulated in Facebook nowadays. Like the Facebook page if you to follow the latest updates.

You are welcomed to comment or drop me a private email if you have any questions. I will try my best to answer.


  1. I read your review of Designer Bridal Room with much interest. I, too, have been there and I must say their service is amazing and no other bridal shop/designer can compare to what I've experienced there. I'm on the verge of purchasing two dresses from them, but would like to know your thoughts on purchasing a designer dress from Singapore. Are the prices much higher than Malaysia (brand names such as Pronovias, Elie Saab, Vera Wang etc) and is the selection there any good. Also, am curious to know if you have bought your wedding dress :)

  2. One thing that was great about this place (and that allowed us to plan it in a short timeframe without losing our minds) was that food, alcohol and rentals are all in house so no extra vendors to deal with. Also the view from wedding venues NYC was amazing!
