过大礼 Guo Da Li : All you need to know about Betrothal Gifts

There are just so many different school of thoughts when it comes to 过大礼 (Guo Da Li). In fact Mr Oops and myself were clueless right from the start. It was through reading and understanding before we finally come to an agreement on the type of betrothal ceremony we want.

First up,
I respect the intention of having of a betrothal ceremony. But the most annoying thing about preparing betrothal gifts is the massive number of items required for a "complete" ceremony.That sure gets on one's nerves.

SGD$220! That's Our Total Spending For Our Tiffany & Peach Travel Themed Wedding Decorations!

Everyone wants their wedding to be the most unique and beautiful one. It's the same for Mr and Mrs OOPS. We went around getting quotations for wedding decorations from various vendors and we realised the dream decorations we want is going to cost us at least a few hundred dollars. That excludes the additional costs incurred to get a decent candy/dessert bar for the wedding reception. Therefore, we decided on this mega budget DIY project which involved help from my lovely wedding jie meis and my dad!
P.S. This post is going to be mega helpful for all brides, especially those who are also having their wedding at Intercontinental Singapore. 
I will first share photos of our wedding reception and solemnization set up. 1) A candy bar, specially for early birds who may want something sweet before the banquet starts.
