“It’s important to communicate well with your husband-to-be, family and wedding planner during the preparations. After that, relax and take things easy.” – Gisella Anastasia (Indonesian Idol finalist)

“Firstly, select a good venue with a team that will offer you the best service and support. Stick to your vision as it makes planning your wedding easier. I refused to let Alex see me in my gown before the day itself. Not only is this customary, but I felt it added a sense of mystery and surprise, too. Have a team of good friends you can rely on for help – and to keep you sane! Lastly, this one’s actually from Alex: The wedding may not be perfect, but the most important thing is to enjoy the process and have great memories. ” – Yvonne Lim (Singaporean Actress)

“Start planning early. Book your vendors and venue early to avoid disappointment and trust your vendors. If you’re getting your wedding dress designed from scratch, trust your designer to do a good job. He or she has worked with many brides before, and knows what works and what doesn’t for your body type. The same applies to your florist’s arrangements. Have lots of patience during the planning. Your wedding is about other people, too! If you feel overwhelmed, take a breather and slowly try to bring the focus back to you. Don’t forget to thank or pay tribute to your parents and family at the reception. It’s your big day, so indulge! Have fun and eat a little during the wedding.” – Glenda Chong (ChannelNews Asia News Presenter). See how Glenda planned her wedding in detail here.

“While you shouldn’t rush getting married, you should start planning as soon as you’ve set the date. To really enjoy your big day, you need to be 100 per cent present in the moment and forget the little hiccups. Invite only those you love instead of trying to include the whole world. This way, you’ll have more time to spend with everyone. If you want to cover all bases, delegate tasks to the immediate wedding party. Finally, chill! It definitely helps to not stress over the little things. ” – Jade Seah (Singapore Model, Host, Actress). See Jade’s marriage tips and post-wedding update here.

“Invest in the food, photographer and videographer as people always remember the food, and you will always have great memories. Get a planner; honestly, it takes the stress out of the
day itself. Don’t spend too much on wedding favours; some will get left behind. Don’t be a bridezilla! Be appreciative of every single person who has helped, especially the vendors. It goes a long way when you want last-minute changes. Make sure you organise transport for guests, especially if it’s their first time in the country, and the venue is far from their accommodation.”  – Choy Teh (PR Specialist)

“Just so they understand your vision, make big decisions with vendors for a long-distance wedding in person instead of via Skype or phone. Send save the dates to guests early, so they have time to make travel plans, budget and pack. Also keep them updated on details like accommodation. Arrange activities for overseas guests, and make them feel at home as much as possible. If you’re marrying overseas, research the country’s marriage laws and cultural traditions.” – Elizabeth Lazan (Actress, TV Host, Producer)
