Couples planning for their wedding can redeem a full rebate on their cash deposits, with $25,000 of cash rebates available at the Blissful Outdoor Wedding Show (BOWS), happening 13th to 15th May at Tan Quee Lan Street.
May 2016’s edition of Singapore’s biggest outdoor wedding show boasts a record of 50 participating merchants, over 2,000 square metres of space, and a whopping $25,000 of cash to give away.
The Grand Cash Rebate, introduced in August 2014, allows couples to win back 100% of their cash deposit with some walking away with up to $5,000.
Ms Adriene Chin, and her husband (then-fiance), Mr Cheng Yinghui, were the biggest winners in the first Grand Cash Rebate Draw on that fateful night of the 10th of August 2014, Sunday.
Mr Don Ho, CEO of Nanyang Inc, co-organiser of BOWS, recalls the moment their names were called, and how he remembered how expensive it is to get married in Singapore. At the time, BOWS had been going on for almost a decade.
“I remember Yinghui giving out a loud shout, walking up to the stage, kissing Adriene, and saying with tears in his eyes, “now we can use this money for our honeymoon”. It was a very moving moment for me. Honestly, organizing and running the show gets tiring, but that moment got me excited about doing BOWS all over again.”
“Now, whenever we plan BOWS, all we look forward to is the Grand Draw on the final night,” he continued.
Ms Angie Lim, Publisher of Blissful Brides Magazine and organiser of BOWS, wholeheartedly agreed. “We believe in creating a show that gives couples everything they need for marriage. Money that we give away in the form of the cash rebate, is one such item. The selection of merchants and the seminars on the second and third day of the event also give a holistic wedding planning experience for couples.”
Financial planning seminars will be helmed by Mr Joseph Tan of ACQUITY, who leads a team that ranks among the top one percent of advisors in the financial industry internationally. “Many problems within marriage can be traced back to money, and my seminars will prepare couples for such issues.”
Couples planning to buy their first home will also be able to learn from Mr Jimmy Beh of First Home Advisors, at his First Home Buyers Seminars. “We really just want to help couples. Very few of them know that they qualify for homes such as Executive Condominiums (ECs), and that such housing is within their means.”
Couples looking to delve into deeper issues of marriage like sexual intimacy and conflict management will be glad to know that professional counsellors from REACH Counselling will also be speaking on the second and third days of the event.
With twice the amount of space, more bridal boutiques, hotels, country clubs, photographers and videographers will be available for couples to choose from at Singapore’s Biggest Outdoor Wedding Show this coming May, which promises to be its greatest show yet.
