    Confused Too early?

    Hi all.. Please help me.. I'm new and blur..

    Is it too early to buy packages now for a 3-3.5 years later wedding?
    As i heard that wedding packages vaild for 5 years (most of the time?) and will usually increase prices by the years and it will increase by quite a significant figure. (Is it true?) (I also have a few favour BS like labelle, zwedding etc)

    I am thinking to go to the BOWS and take a look and take up packages that favours me? ( is RSVP needed for BOWS or is it only for their prep talk)

    P.s My hubby to be in years, is intending to do our wedding so called "last min" when the HDB wants our certificate

    Thank you

    Pro: secure the price, cheaper package
    Con: what if close shop? Change owner? New thing in the market that is not include in package.

    Ooo. True about the pros and cons jiemin.
    Xiaonicbb: kinda glad to know I'm not the only one xD. I'm also most probably holding my rom and wedding in 2015. I'm like overly excited and then will start to think and plan ( don't know if you will be like that too)

    1) try to get a good date for your wedding first.
    2) Ask a master to calculate the date for both of you using your bazi.
    3) A good date will decide the pricing for the tables, some hotels will charge $100 per table for a good date.
    4) If you are having your wedding after the 30 March of that year, the price will increase according.

    Mine is march 2014 but I've started doing my research 6mths ago. Well, can't blame us for being excited over one of our biggest event in our life! Its never too early to start sourcing for the wedding. However a problem that i encountered so far is booking the banquet...

    I wanted to book the ballroom in Fullerton Hotel but they didn't allow, saying the dates for 2014 are not available yet. And bcos the prices for banquet pkgs tend to increase every year, it means that my budget will be affected, thus I can't really know how much budget I can spare for the rest of wedding necessities/ expenses.

    I'm gonna view the ballroom this coming Saturday, hopefully I'm able to lock in a price for the banquet pkg in 2014

    GOD BLESS!

    from what i found out from a few married friends and some hotel packages, if your dinner is held by march 2014, the price should not differ much from price of package for 3rd to 4th quarter 2013. however, there are also hotels whereby their price is valid from jan-june / july-dec. so far, i have enquired from more den 10 different hotels for my dec 2013 dinner. most of them, the price diff is about $20-$30++ per table.

    additional, i think you can try to nego with the hotel/events manager if you are firm to sign the package for your 2014 dinner (of cos if its not end of 2014 as year end, more couples tie the knot/hold dinner).

    above of IMO no offence to anyone
