Are you deciding on whether to push through with or postpone your wedding? Holly and Ronald were faced with the same dilemma a few months back. Initially, they planned to postpone, but when they were discussing about how to go about it, they realized that it was so difficult to settle on a future date. Without a vaccine, any future date would still be subject to all the risks of the COVID-19 pandemic, so they went on with their wedding with major adjustments. At that time in June, the government limited gatherings to only 50 people. Holly and Ronald downsized their weddings to only close family and select friends. The two are founders of Sphere Soccer Academy and their big party with their students had to be put off for another time. Though it was a tough decision and many adjustments had to be made, Holly and Ronald said that this is only the beginning of the many challenges that will come their way as a married couple. They’re happy that their wedding day turned out to be perfect and they’re confident they can overcome everything else that comes their way, together.

As much as you want to splurge on everything for your wedding, the reality most brides are faced with is one where they will have to choose which wedding details to focus on and therefore, spend more on. (You can’t splurge on everything!) We conducted a survey and asked real brides what wedding detail they really invested more funds on and why they chose these. We hope this sheds light on what items might be worth the splurge. Read on to find out about the top six wedding details brides spent on (in no particular order) and why.

Of course, photography and videography play a key role on your wedding. “It’s one of the things you will keep after the wedding,” says @roberta_vc and @chloelyng. Hence, many brides feel this is something that you should not scrimp on. Furthermore, @wong_sarahhk says that “it’s worth spending on a skillful and sensible photographer who can capture the most valuable and meaningful moment on our big day.” So aside from documenting the day, getting someone who has an eye for precious moments is important too. Spending more to have this level of attention to detail is well worth it.
Call us very meticulous, but we think that every detail in any wedding must be on point–from your wedding look down to the sweets that your guests will devour post banquet. Therefore, we can’t stress enough how important it is to have a wedding cake that will not just take the backseat. No. A wedding cake must shine, just the same! Today, we’re going to show you a stunning roster of wedding cakes that will prove our point. So without further delay, here’s a list of 28 modern and chic wedding cakes that will surely make that mark in any wedding.

The COVID-19 pandemic is truly changing the world. We have to adjust the way we live our daily lives and interact with others. Likewise, weddings are also evolving.

You CAN still have a wonderful wedding day despite the current situation. All you need to do is be flexible and open to change. To help you figure out what you need to do, read on for 7 wedding changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
(1) Adjusting to #stayhome indoor pre-wedding photo sessions.
Since going out means risking the chances of catching the virus, couples have been considering pre-wedding shoots at home. It’s not a bad idea at all! Think of the things you and your partner love to do at home and capture those moments. If you have pets, you can include them too.
For their engagement shoot, Helena and Eugene decided to do something simple yet meaningful. Ever since they got together, they would always have a simple picnic during springtime. It seemed only fitting for them to make this annual bonding activity the setting for their pre-wedding photo session with Hong Kong photographer, Michelle Kwok. The pair decided to keep everything casual so that they could be comfortable in front of the camera. During the photo shoot, Helena brought out their “Happy Box”, a small box where the couple kept all their mementos. Helena and Eugene opened the box together and had so much fun looking at all the memories contained in it–movie ticket ends, receipts, covers of Häagen-Dazs ice cream cups, and more, all from different stages of the relationship. They enjoyed the throwback so much that they even forgot they were having an engagement shoot! See all of Helena and Eugene’s pre-wedding photos by scrolling on.
