Getting married this year? What are the popular dates couples in Singapore choose for their big day? 11 January and 20 November are two of the popular dates.
The Registry of Marriages (ROM) has received higher-than-usual bookings for 11 January or 11-1-11. At the same time, a majority of hotels are fully booked for wedding feasts on 11 and 20 November.
Hotels expect a 10% rise in their wedding businesses this year. This is despite there being 15 fewer so-called “auspicious” days this year compared to last year. “The reason is: this year is going to be the Year of the Rabbit and we forecast that a lot of young couples would like to get married this year in order to have a ‘Dragon’ baby next year,” said Lau Kah Guan, director of food and beverage at Orchard Hotel Singapore.
A boost in wedding lunches is also expected, as couples unable to get dinner bookings for the auspicious dates opt to celebrate in the day instead.
This makes alot of sense! As a firm believer in astrology, I can attest to the fact that dragon babies will be winners and leaders in society!
