The wedding budget may not be as easy to maintain. Even if you have already set aside an amount, thanks to the plethora of choices (and Pinterest), you might often find yourself on the verge of overspending. Are you guilty of justifying these expenses with reasons like “but it’s only once in a lifetime!“?
You don’t need us to remind you that wedding is just one of the many life events you will encounter. While we encourage you to make it as “you” as possible, always keep in mind the amount you’ve initially budgeted for. Prioritize on the areas that are important to you! If you can’t decide whether something will be worth it, read on!
Here, we got those who are now happily married to share with us their best wedding purchases. Looking back, these are the things they were glad to have splurged on!
Floral & Decoration
For those who seek to create memorable guest experiences, how a space look, feel and even smell like is important to them.
I’m glad we splurged on our florals!Vincent & Clare

Photography & Videography
This is for those who enjoys a nice trip down memory lane.
The photos are what you will hold onto over time so choosing a photographer with the right vibe and style is pertinent even if it may not come cheap!Rainer & Shauna
Probably gotta be the videographer which was a pretty last minute decision as we initially didn’t want it! No regrets whatsoever – Jude and his team from RekordHaus did a fantastic job!Ainsley & Siying
For those looking to be their best selves, that extra effort you make to look flawless will be worth it.
By far our most expensive purchase would have been Cleo’s wedding dress by JessicaCindy and my suit and tuxedo by Joe’s Tailoring. As our photos are meant to be the reminders of the biggest day of our lives, we both agreed that we would want to look back at our wedding photos and see ourselves looking at our best… Our outfits were custom-made for us and the fit and style produced by both JessicaCindy and Joe’s tailoring were simply outstanding – definitely worth the purchase.Paul & Cleo
Lloyd’s suit, which he was very happy with. I don’t think we splurged on anything elseLlyod & Lauren
For those who think the wedding is just a teeny bit part less important, splurge on something non-wedding-related! You will likely thank yourselves for it.
A honeymoon home for the next 4 months!Keith & Linnette
For those who are conscious about where and what they’re spending on and for who, they would realise everything is worth it!
Everything? HahaZhi Wei & Huimin
