I Am Getting Married

OK, back to the topic above. Now I know arranging a marriage is not an easy task until you really experience it. I will arrange mine in a very simple way and perhaps can share some tips with those of you who plan to get marry soon.



First, the ring or wedding band. As the trend nowadays is towards platinum with diamond, I would advice to purchase both material separately. Meaning to say, firstly, get the platinum ring and then followed by the diamond, then send both material to the shop to make one, the cost will be cheaper 20%-30% from the market.

After the ring, then come the wedding pictures or wedding album. Many of times I heard from my friends who got married on the cost of this ranging from RM2k to RM8k. I will arrange mine in Taiwan though for a cost of less than RM4k excluding the air tickets & ground arrangement. Perhaps to some it is not worthwhile but to me it is a holiday-cum-photo shooting, plus I had always been wanting to visit Taiwan so it will be considered like a pre-honeymoon with a total cost of less than RM10k.

And on the dinner reception, food to me is secondary. Primarily, the overall environment will be the most important. I realized that most Chinese wedding dinner starts at 7PM and by the time all guests reach, the dinner will start around 9PM. So to minimize the late comers, I will arrange mine at 6PM, guests will be served with cocktail and a mini garden party. Dinner will commence at around 8PM. It's a ballroom dinner so I will set a certain dress code. I will also invite Vanessa Tan, local jazz singer to perform that night. So those who giving ang pow, study the market rate ya :)

Phew... I had arranged so much but now I am missing something....
