This article is part of our Planning a Wedding in a Pandemic: Covid-19 series.
These are the buzzwords surrounding wedding plans in the COVID-19 era. It has changed the way we celebrate love and marriage, casting aside long-established traditions of big celebrations from all different cultures.
In Singapore, many couples are putting their wedding plans on hold, as they eagerly wait for the world to recover. There are also others who are embracing this change, taking the chance to highlight what’s most important to them and to streamline and adapt their plans as the situation continues to evolve.
Along with the latter group, the Singapore Wedding Industry has been quick to adjust and many in this line of service are now offering a variety of packages to help ease the load of planning during a pandemic. There are plenty of choices for couples planning to host an intimate celebration (or what the industry has affectionately term a “mini-mony”) and for those who find themselves stuck with disrupted plans and require professional help to get back on track.
The types of packages available range from an all-inclusive one consisting of venue rentals to customizable packages that you can tailor based on your needs.
Professionals are listed in alphabetical order.
