    Wedding expenses checklist?

    Dear all,

    Is there anyone who can share your miscellaneous wedding expenses checklist. I refer to the expenses that will be incurred in additional to the wedding package and banquet cost. For example, Ang baos required for the AD's distribution, parent's coat / dresses, sister & brother's wear, wedding stuff - an chuan, printing of invites, wedding band performance on AD, wedding shoes, AD photo/videography etc...

    Seemed like the list just goes on and on...

    So I hope there can be some ready checklist which can help me to organise and budget for these "hidden" expenses...

    Thanks in advance to all!

    Hi fairy, before u plan for a wedding.. It's good that u start to discuss with ur partner n work out a budget. If not u guys hav to carry a big sum on ur back. and of coz everyone wants their wedding to be the grand. But do think of the next step unless u have no plan to have ur own house n kids.
    Usually a average couple will spend on their wedding other than dinner
    1. photoshoots-$3000+($1000 for additional photo, unless ur mentality is strong n will not tempt by the amazing pics)
    Usually the bridal shop have package for flowers,parent coats n video what can total up to$4-5k.
    If really on budget I suggest u go jb to check out for better offer.
    2. Prepare for a honeymoon trip (most ppl want Europe trip but I prefer somewhere peaceful like new Zealand)
    3.ang bao wise let ur parent to settle...but do take note! Within ur limit.

    Blah blah blah...everything is about $40k

    Well, Theres too many thing to list out. Maybe u can take some time browse this website (really useful)
    All the best for ur search n happy marriage.
