19 Jun Updated: Planning a wedding in Singapore in 1 month (2020/2021 edition)
Is it possible to plan a wedding in 30 days?
Absolutely! And HitchPlanner is here to help you plan your dream wedding in 30 days every step of way.
For couples in Singapore, planning a wedding is one of the most unique experiences in life, right up next to graduation, or having your first child. And every romantic movie has taught us that organizing a wedding is interesting, fun, and romantic.
If you talk to brides and grooms that have “graduated” (happily married), they will tell you that it is one of the most challenging but rewarding events that they have ever planned. You have to work through persistence, showing love and care, and making compromises. They however did not mention the part on organising a wedding. It is all fun and interesting until you actually have to start planning and organising the nitty-gritty details of your wedding. That’s when all hell breaks loose and you realise why people fight so much before the wedding.
Average time spent planning a wedding in Singapore: 9 to 12 months.
Planning a wedding in Singapore, especially in a short period of time can seem like mission impossible. There are so many things you need to take into consideration, compare and choose from, that you end up having not enough time or energy to deal with. However, it is absolutely possible to plan a wedding in 30 days.
If you are organising a much bigger wedding with 200 guests or more, then you would have even less time for organisation!
The traditional way of planning a wedding in Singapore is archaic
The traditional way of planning a wedding in Singapore is super time-consuming – no one has time to email or ring up every single vendor trying to find the perfect photographer, florists, hotels, wedding entertainment, videographers, and wedding planner experts. The thought of this seems exhausting enough!
Imagine if you have to go over dozens of each of these. From one shop to another, bringing notes and ideas with you, trying to compare prices, ideas and solutions while estimating which one you like best and is available for your dates. While still being within budget and getting the best services & value for your big day!
You will also need to check and confirm details with your vendors (goodbye weekends) to make sure they got the right date and time.
Clear communication is essential!
What about your friends and family? Make sure that people involved in your wedding, be it your future in-laws, your parents or your bridal party, feels included in the whole process. After all, they’ve made themselves available 24/7 to be of help and willing to go on this wild ride with you!
