He spent 3 years to save up S$10,000 for his ideal wedding but unfortunately, he miscalculated. It took him a total of S$25,000. This debt was finally settled after two years together with the help of his parents.


Budgeting the Wedding

This goes to show that wedding ceremonies cost too much. Unless you have many to spare, you will not encounter any difficulties before and after the wedding. Sometimes, due to financial troubles, marriages are breaking apart. The disintegration of the marriage alarmed the Ministry of Social and Family Development. With that, the Ministry thought about Marriage Preparation Course. This course seeks to educate and raise the awareness of the couple so they will not encounter any troubles before and after their wedding. Here are some components of the course:
