Vintage Singapore Wedding

Vintage Weddings

We were so delighted when bride Jia sent us her wedding from last year. It isn’t often we get to feature weddings from such distant lands, so we’re extra-excited to share this gorgeous wedding from Singapore. Jia, an ardent lover of the 1950s and all things vintage, incorporated this love into her traditional-yet-whimsical reception. Thanks to photographers Joseph from BitterSweet, Fengzhi from This is It! & Charity from Charity Goh Photography for the wonderful images!

From the bride, Jia: The wedding theme reflects our personalities and it was a whimsical vintage one. I love vintage, especially the 1950s. The church ceremony was a solemn affair, which followed the traditional Chinese “gatecrashing” involving the groom and groomsmen trying to overcome “obstacles” prepared by the bridesmaids to enter the home of the bride. Dinner was held at a beautiful colonial house at the Botanic Gardens.

Inspiration was gathered from many many different sources, some of them from the movie “Up” and most of them using recycled items and handmedowns from my family.

The corsages on the groomsmen’s vests; bridesmaids’ lace hairclips, ushers’ badges were all handmade. I love buttons and cheery colours. :) We also made a picture gallery with cheap frames sandpapered to give them a rugged look, vintage lace cloth as a table runner complete with old photographs of our past to give our guests a peek into what life was like before we met. I do a little bit of copywriting at work, so I came up with the table names – associated with our love life, the little signs at the photobooth and desserts table etc.

One of the most highly anticipated elements of a wedding is the honeymoon. Whether you’re setting your sights on a warm climate, mountainous surroundings, or city crawling, honeymoons provide an unimaginable respite from the stresses of wedding planning! Traveler’s Joy offers innumerable resources to couples, ranging from building your own honeymoon registry to reading real member honeymoon stories and viewing real member registry pages.

From Traveler’s Joy: Our Instant Registry feature allows the couple to complete their registry in just minutes! When setting up their gift inventory they can choose from a list of pre-made theme-based or location-specific registries. With one click they can instantly add items and experiences to their registry specific to the theme or destination. They can edit or delete any item at any time and also add plenty more of their own. We have over 40 of the top honeymoon destinations in the world. It is really a great way for the couple to build the foundation of their honeymoon registry. After some personal customization, the couple can have their registry ready to share with friends and family.

There has been an increase in the number of ‘physical items’ Traveler’s Joy Members are registering for that are related to their honeymoon. Some examples include travel guidebooks, cameras, video cameras, luggage, snorkeling gear, and even newlywed flip flops. Our registry system makes it easy to divide the cost of expensive items into manageable gift pieces so a camera that may cost $500 is actually spit up into 4 gift of $125. We believe this functionality is one reason why we are seeing an increase in the registering of these types of items.

Traveler’s Joy offers your guests the opportunity to contribute directly to your honeymoon — really, what better gift could there be? Have fun picking out your customized honeymoon today!
