Email Enquiry: Is there a Need for Wedding Engagement?

I received an email enquiry from a reader:
“I have a Singaporean girlfriend who I want to marry and I am trying to ask her parents for their
blessing. I want to know if it is Singaporean culture to become engaged?”

“Hi, yes, you are right. In Singapore, there is a need for solemnisation to take place so that both of you are considered legally married in the eyes of Singapore’s law.

There are generally 2 arrangements local wedding couples do.

1. Solemnisation done about a year before the actual wedding day.

You can register at Singapore’s Registry of Marriage and book a date.

The solemnisation can be done at the Registry itself (like what my cousin did for her solemnisation) or you can book an external venue such as a restaurant or a function room of a hotel.

Some locals prefer a long time period between the two important dates so that they can get a local house unit using their names as married couples.

In addition, they can have ample time to renovate their house in time for their wedding day.

Bridesmaids Dresses

I have a wedding-related email enquiry on what kind of bridesmaids dresses to wear.

This lady is about 1.57cm tall with fair/ yellowish skin tone with a weight of between 45 to 50kg.

Her sister-in-law is going to wear a turquoise evening dress and this reader is quite confused about what to wear during the wedding dinner.

I supposed this type of confusion is common among the many bridesmaids who are helping out. There are some who want to have a share of the limelight while others just want to help out.

I have come across bridesmaids who want to manipulate what to be worn on the wedding night. However, such cases are rare.

I went to Google search “turquoise wedding gown” and I have found some wedding photos. I am trying to understand how does one look like so that I can be clearer in what my reader wants.

So, these are the wedding gowns’ photos I found.

“Hi Jhong Ren,

Can I check with you what are the essential stuff and things to do and bring during indoor and outdoor photoshoot?


Hi Shelen,

I would like to reply you in the form of a post so everyone can benefit. Hope that it is ok with you. 🙂

A breakdown of schedule for your wedding photoshoot. Again, this is a rough estimate as different bridal studios have different practice.

For mine at Seletar Boradway, it was like:
9am: report to studio
10am: make-up by make-up artist
11am to 2pm: Indoor shoot for wedding gown, evening gowns, Chinese Kuas and other costumes if any

2pm to 3pm: Lunch
3pm to 5pm: Continue with indoor shoot
5pm to 9.30pm: Outdoor phootshoot at two venues

“Hi Dahpne,

Sorry to hear that your computer had crashed. Did you do a backup of all the important wedding info you had gathered?

Could be frustrating when we lose our info.

I remembered during my wedding preparation, I saved all my datas in 3 places: my PC, my thumbdrive and my portable hard disk.

It is better to play safe.

I’m really glad you came back.
