Riding the waves of time, many Singaporean couples are giving their weddings a modern theme. Minimalism has also seen a rise. Veering away from traditional, venues for celebrations are adorned with simple decorations and cakes are almost bare.

The top five colours used as a theme colour for weddings in Singapore are gold, pink, light blue, navy blue and white. The hues are cool and go perfectly with the most popular theme.

One of the most crucial parts of planning a wedding, when it comes to brides, is the wedding gown. The cut has to be perfect for the body and should suit the wearer's personality. As it turns out, among the popular wedding gown styles in Singapore is the ball gown, which is akin to what princesses in fairy tales wear. Going with the modern theme that's rising, many women also opt to wear A-line dresses and gowns with mermaid cuts. The necklines are also very minimal; strapless, off-the-shoulder and illusion are the more popular styles.

While the responsibility of planning a wedding almost always falls on the lap of the bride, grooms have areas they need to take charge of as well, like their attire for the wedding. Many Singaporean men appear to have a style that falls in between casual slash comfortable and formal. Many grooms opt to wear single-breasted suits on their big days, while donning a stroller suit comes in at second place. Black, navy and grey are among the colours preferred.
