Singapore Wedding Tips
Holding a traditional Singaporean Chinese-style wedding amidst the lucky, celebratory colours of red and gold, as well as experiencing the traditional hair-combing marital ritual is an event that you definitely shouldn’t miss! Singapore’s warm weather and welcoming people makes this nation the perfect Asian wedding and honeymoon destination for couples who are seeking a trip booming with cultural flavour and fascinating experiences. Enjoy a romantic afternoon visit to Sentosa Island for a peaceful trek with your other half, or soar high into the skies on the Singapore Flyer in downtown Raffles Avenue, catching a panoramic glimpse of the moonlit metropolitan view!
Traditional wedding banquets in Singapore are similar to the style of Chinese wedding banquets, normally consisting of eight to ten courses. These dishes and delicacies are heavily symbolic of marital values such as happiness, prosperity, longevity, fertility, and much more. Dishes are carefully selected due to these symbolic values, as well as the meaning behind the name of the dish. A large, whole, steamed fish covered in soy sauce and seasonings is a common marital dish, as it traditionally signifies abundance and success in a couple’s marriage. Yam pudding is another common marital dessert, as it symbolizes fertility, growth and a sweet life after marriage, due to its sugary flavour combined with the texture of beans and gingko nuts.
Singapore is also home to many scrumptious local dishes, and one of them is the Singapore chili crab, a savory dish with overwhelming sweet and sourness that leaves an addicting and lingering aftertaste in your mouth. In addition, a common Singaporean breakfast is the Chwee Kueh, thick rice cakes with a preserved spicy radish sauce poured all over, making a flavourful start to the morning!
