Our Wedding – Lunch Banquet

I can’t believe 3 weeks flew past just like that! We were busy for months before our big day on the 19th of Jan’14, and before we knew it, it was over. Thank goodness we have some nice photos to look back on 🙂

I have previously posted my morning highlights photos here, and shall proceed on to include more photos for the lunch banquet held at the Intercontinental Hotel.

Thinking back, I really really had a lot of fun during my wedding. It felt so good to see so many relatives and friends, and Andy and I are so fortunate to have everyone’s blessing. We are lucky to have a group of close friends who made sure everything runs smoothly.

One last note here, a wedding is definitely a joyous and magical event. However, as someone who writes about personal finance matters, I’ll like to emphasize that a blissful marriage is what really matters. After all, a wedding only lasts a day while a marriage is for a lifetime. Therefore, it is critical to spend within one’s means for one’s wedding. Money arguments between couples are the top reasons why a marriage fell apart. Don’t let that happen to you, handle your marriage and your money well.

Cheers!
