Items required for a successful Chinese wedding in Singapore

Since the ancient times, Chinese weddings have always been elaborate community affairs where no expense and efforts are spared to make them successful. The wedding ceremony is a culmination of other elaborate rites where the entire family comes together with the community to honor age old traditions.

An ordinary Chinese wedding costs at least $20,000 but you might expect to pay more for the elegance and glamour that comes with Chinese rites.

By holding a Chinese wedding in Singapore, you will be immersing yourself into tradition, and in order to ensure that you stay true to these age old traditions, here are some of the costs, though not exhaustive, that you’ll have to factor in:

  1. Proposal/Betrothal, Guo Da Li (过大礼): This is a crucial part of the Chinese wedding in Singapore and it involves presentation of gifts by the groom’s family. These gifts should represent well wishes for fertility and prosperity. Different dialect groups have their own unique betrothal baskets, which you can easily buy from wedding shops in the city. This usually consists of red packets for parents ($2,000), wedding biscuits and cakes ($600), and 4 gold ($3,700), bringing the total to $6,300 which usually comes out of the groom’s pocket.
  2. Wedding bands: These will cost you anything from $2,000 to $5,000.
  3. Wedding photography and videography:This is a must for all weddings. You would need to have a professional photographer/videographer to capture this once in a lifetime celebration and moment. You will have to put aside an estimated $2,000 – $4,000 for this.
  4. Wedding banquet: This is going to take up the bulk of the cost as friends and family of the bride and groom will gather together at a hotel (usually) for a lavish eight to ten course dinner, sometimes lunch. There will be speeches from parents, the maid of honour, friends and the bride and groom themselves. There will also usually be a cake cutting ceremony and a toast for to celebrate the joyous occasion. This will cost anywhere between $30,000 to $50,000. That being said, most of the money can be recovered through the red packets from guests.
  5. If you are planning a Chinese wedding in Singapore, you have to be ready to bring to life these age old traditions and customs. They will cost a lot but you will have the crucial blessings of the family and community as you start your marriage life.

This is an important community event that needs to be celebrated in style. It is not a family affair alone but an elaborate occasion involving the ‘gotong-royong’ kampung spirit where the whole community comes together to celebrate your nuptials.

Of course, all weddings require a lot of effort but for Malay weddings, you need even more. These are elaborate events that rope in everyone in the community. They are not just focused on the nuptials but instead, the couple goes through a cultural journey that was well established by the forefathers.
