If you have a “good” wedding, would it lower your chance of divorce?

I’m just thinking– If you planned and experienced a very memorable wedding, would it lower the chance of divorce? “Memorable” does not mean “expensive”. “Memorable” however, means doing things on your terms and in accordance to what matters to you. You see, recently I’d been thinking about the meaning of a wedding ring. On the one hand, a wedding ring is just metal. (Rose gold, white gold, gold, silver, palladium) On the other hand, a wedding ring serves as a constant reminder and a promise. So there are two extremes you see, in terms of the visible and the invisible. If one forgets about the invisible, then it’s easy to regard the ring as “just metal”. Likewise, if one forgets the significance of the wedding, then it’s easy to get divorce. Unsure if this is indeed logical though. If it is, then it might be a good idea to videograph and photograph your wedding. Recently I get slightly freaked out with people who say that they would like to have a wedding just to please their parents, …

What’s your wedding for?

“A wedding is so troublesome.” –I don’t know why I always felt that way about weddings, as a first feeling. Sorry this post is going to be so haphazard and random because I’m so physically tired, but let me just jot these thoughts down before I forget. –But shouldn’t a wedding be something beautiful? “I”M MARRYING A GUY I REALLY LIKE OMG OMGOMG GOMG OMG OMG.” So how can someone not be excited over weddings? Or has “he” been so taken for granted that all the OMGs die? What’s your gown for?  “I’m wearing this gown to look pretty for my groom” Vs “Anything that doesn’t make me look fat to the rest.” Do such thoughts not mark the vast differences in premise? So yes, what is the wedding for? who is the wedding for? why hold a wedding? What’s the first answer that comes to your heart? — If you were to start with a premise of “the wedding is just for show”, then spending even 2000euros on it would be a waste. But if …

7 things my research on weddings taught me about life and humility.

I used to be rather arrogant before I started my research on the Singapore’s wedding industry since 1.5years ago. That is, I thought I knew a lot and there were certain ways of life which I cannot help but judge. This judge-y worldview has since changed a lot ever since I sat down and listened to the stories of brides, because their intimate sharing truly made me realise how much I don’t know I don’t know. On hindsight, I therefore think that this wedding research has made me a more humble and empathetic listener + person. Since I have so much angst right now while reading about crooked wedding vendors, let me take some time to write about the 7 things my research on weddings taught me about life and humility. – #7. Like life, a wedding is technically “once in a lifetime”. This means that there are plenty of stuffs you don’t even know you don’t know. So, actively listen to people with experience, but decide which experience to adopt for yourself. Well, you should actively ask people for advice, and there would …

The Wedding Post!

Okay folks! Today i am going to blog about three weddings I’d recently attended– Singaporean Indian, Taiwanese and South Korean. I’m 25 this year, and soooo many precious people around me are starting to get married; so I have decided to blog about it to spread the joy!~~ ❤ This traditional cake picture is for my sister’s wedding… 🙂 …next month, Thank GOD!! 😀 At least I can take a simple break from this attending-wedding frenzy! 😀 —————————~~~ First up…the Magnificent Indian Wedding! The above is a really smart idea: A guest book which has your photos and comments!! 😀 They take your photo instantly, right before you write your words of blessings for the new couple. We took our photos before we entered the hall. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Indian weddings!!! They are so colourful and happy and filled with blessings. Most of the guests are dressed really in colourful saris and all, and everywhere were eye candies 😀 And as compared to the Chinese weddings, they are efficient. Basically our wedding feast …
