Wedding Fitness, Wedding Dances and Wedding Dates Selection

You said “Yes!” to him, and now…what? As straight-forward as planning a wedding may seem, it actually involves more steps and work than you think. But planning your own wedding is not impossible with a little help and reminder along the way. Follow our step-by-step wedding guide and find out all the essential must-do’s in your wedding planning for that one magical big day of yours.


1. Auspicious Wedding Dates Selection

Before you can search for your wedding venue, you need to have a wedding date. Consult our calendar of auspicious wedding dates to find your date. A word of advice: do try to have at least 2 auspicious wedding dates on hand. In the event that your chosen venue is not available on one date, you can check with them immediately if they are available on the second one.

2. Register Your Marriage

You’ve popped the question and you’ve found your wedding date. Now, it’s time to make it legal by applying for a notice of marriage at the Registry of Marriage (ROM). However, you can only do so at lest 21 days or up to 3 months before the date of solemnisation. Find out what other things you need to prepare and take note for your solemnisation. If you plan to solemnise outside of the ROM building, look through our ROM venue listings to help you find the ideal place where you’ll exchange your vows at. We help couples to make memorable wedding videos. Check out the ROM highlights series here.

3. Budgeting

While waiting to register your marriage, work on your wedding budget. To avoid falling into debt, you and your husband-to-be need to sit down and decide realistically on how big a celebration you plan to have and how much you are willing and able to spend on your nuptials. While most weddings today are getting bigger and fancier, you can still plan a beautiful wedding on a budget. However, not all budget wedding tips will save your money.

5. Fitness Goal

Setting a fitness goal for yourself as the wedding date draws nearer? While we think all brides look radiant and exceptionally beautiful on the big day, we understand that many feel the need to pay extra attention to exercise before donning their fabulous wedding dresses. To help you get a knock-out body, we recommend FitZS, a Zumba fitness studio in Singapore as workout is supposed to be fun. The environment is supportive, upbeat, and encouraging. And—the best part—no professional dance experience necessary.

6. Wedding Videography and Photography

Start searching for a wedding videographer and photographer once you have a wedding date and venue. Photographers and videographers are usually booked for weddings a year or more ahead, especially if they are popular among the groups of couples getting married. Visit our directory listing of wedding photographers and videographers and shortlist those whose style you like and schedule a meeting with them to discuss your expectations for your wedding photographs. Go with the one whom you feel most connected to and who meets your budget.
