It’s the Wedding Season

Wedding Cards Galore!
Wedding Cards Galore!

These few months seem to the wedding season for my circle of friends. I have been attending at least one wedding every week since a month ago and the momentum is going to continue till the end of the year.

One reason is the age – the average marriage age for Singaporean male is 29.8 and 27.2 for female (Wikipedia, 2007). My friends fit in these age brackets.

Another reason could be people trying to avoid getting married next year as it’s the year of the Tiger in the Chinese zodiac which is deemed inauspicious by some.

The chain of weddings are painful on the pocket with the Chinese’s penchant for lavish hotel banquets which entail customary ang pows from guests in order for the couple to cover their costs. If we were to ask me, the prices are probably highly inflated by the hotels and restaurants who profiteer from people’s willingness to give during the special occasion. At the end of everything, they are the one who stand to gain the most, not the couple who may even incur a hefty lost.

Rachel and I are now planning for our own wedding which should be in the middle of next year if all goes smoothly. It’s quite a chore, but we are also learning from our friends’ weddings as we attend them one by one. 🙂

  1. I think nowadays people feels pressured into hosting a traditional wedding, i have friends telling me that dun u want to have a tradition wedding and sharing with me the games they played when fetching their wife from the in law side.

    After hearing their stories it sounds similar and norm, which makes no special and it is bored as everyone almost similar.

    Am looking forward for ur wedding day as i believe u will be the first to have a special wedding for ur special one.

    I heard from the radio 100.3 abt both of u and I feel that both of u are special and different.
