#COVERBRIDE FINALIST: Lau Xin Yi, 28, Ecommerce Senior Marketing Executive, engaged to Yue Kaiwen, 30, Operations Manager.

Date of marriage: 23 Nov 2019

Online connection

We met through an online dating app (OkCupid) and have been together for 3 years and 5 months. We started with light conversation online decided to meet up for our first date at Hai Dai Lao, 313 Somerset – not a good idea! The place was very popular, so we waited from 6pm till 10pm before we finally got our seats. We spent the 4 hours wait chatting away. Thankfully it went quite well.

We’re a ‘pragmatic’ couple

Before Kaiwen, I dated a couple of guys and had bad experiences and serious trust issues with them. So I was a bit skeptical with him as well initially. But Kaiwen gained my trust over time and he really made an effort to make this relationship work. 

I guess we also met each other at the right time age and at a stage where we were both financially stable to settle down. It was quite a pragmatic decision!


(On her gown during the shoot) I love details with a line of crystal buttons - it was love at first sight for me!  That was definitely my dream gown!


“I'm in a love-hate relationship with him!”

 He nags a lot, more than my mum! But I know its for my own good…
