The Nuptial Series - (iii) The Solemnisation Venue

All right, so we have got The Proposal and Filing of Notice of Marriage covered, now it's time to get to the exciting part.

At this juncture, some of you may be considering a Wedding Planner to take care of all the planning and save you the trouble / headache of finding everything on your own. As for me, I spoke to a couple of them but their services couldn't add value to what I have in mind, hence I decided to plan my own wedding.  

Don't get me wrong - wedding planners do take alot of work off your hands, and they would plan out a timeline for you so that everything is on track. Their fees are very reasonable as well, and they are able to help you negotiate for preferential arrangements, ensuring that everything goes smoothly.

But some of us prefer the fun of finding our own ROM / solemnisation venues. Here is a list of affordable, incredibly romantic and interesting ideas for your consideration. Well, do note that there are many other venues for you to consider, but these are the venues we have considered for our own solemnisation, and prices indicated are estimated quotes for us, up to June 2016.

Fancy a breezy solemnisation with all the elements of sun, sand and sea all intact?  Here is a list of beach solemnisation venues to consider, whether you prefer the blessing of the dazzling sun or are prepared to be romanticised by the beauty of dusk

Between the water and the skies, we share the same love for both. Hence, it was not difficult to see why we would check out the rates for Singapore Flyer's solemnisation. Incredibly romantic and timeless concept on one of Singapore's icon.
