RRP $16.99

Your wedding is one of the most important, and biggest events in your life. Getting engaged and planning a wedding are an exciting and magical time, but without all the right information and planning, it can also be a headache-inducing experience. There are a lot of details and a lot of preparation that goes into planning a wedding: from securing a venue, inviting guests, choosing flowers, when the wedding will be held and more. There are so many details to be arranged. The Smart & Easy Guide To Wedding Planning: Your Guide Book to the Perfect DIY Dream Wedding With or Without the Help of a Wedding Planner details all elements of wedding planning. The guide notes the importance of good wedding preparation. This is the biggest day of a couples' lives and all details should be attended to properly. The guide discusses the general timeline for wedding planning, which is usually between 9-12 months. This is the amount of time suggested to allow for proper, unrushed planning of the festivities. While not set in stone, the timeline for most major wedding-related preparations is as follows: 6-12 months before the wedding, deposits for venues, caterers and the reception hall should be made. This is also when musicians, florists, the wedding cake baker, etc. should be lined up. The details do not need to be finalized, but deposits need to be made. 4 months before the wedding choose the guests, honeymoon location, attire for the wedding party, etc. 2 months before the wedding, send out invitations, apply for marriage license. 1 month before the wedding is generally when bachelor and bachelorette parties are thrown. This is also when final fittings and small details are finalized. 2 weeks before the wedding is when the marriage license should be filed and change of name/address should be filed. This is also when all the details that have not yet been finalized need to be set in stone. The day before the wedding is generally when the rehearsal is held. The guide then goes on to provide a detailed chapter on devising a wedding budget. Weddings can be very expensive and couples are often faced with sticker shock or the inability to have the wedding they wanted due to finances. The guide recommends laying out all the resources you have at your disposal so as to know exactly what you have to work with. Even with a small budget, you can have a fairytale-like wedding. Wedding take a lot of preparation and the guide recommends delegation of tasks to help reduce the burden on the couple. Friends and family members are often more than willing to help with certain aspects of wedding planning or related tasks and allowing them to take part not only reduces the burden on the couple, but allows family and friends to feel like they are a bigger part of your big day. The guide then touches on the role of the best man, how to best choose flowers and other decorations, as well as how to ensure that your guests will have an enjoyable experience. There is even a chapter that discusses second marriages and the different set of circumstances these weddings bring to light. Your wedding is the biggest day of your life as a couple, and we all want our wedding day to be as perfect as possible.

Spatial Planning For A Sustainable Singapore

RRP $409.99

In the last four decades, Singapore s urban development has gradually received an international reputation. From a city of just under two million people in 1960, we replaced squatters and slums with mostly high-rise, high-density public housing as well as industrial estates, commercial centres and parks and gardens. We dem- strated to our earlier well-meaning critics that a high-rise housing programme need not be automatically doomed to failure. Indeed Singapore now serves as an ex- ple of shaping successful residential communities to the massive population of Asia. Our city is now at nearly 4. 5 million people. It is green and clean, with fl- ing traffic, functioning infrastructure and proper space allocated for every urban need. It is no longer as clinical as it was in the 1970s, as we can afford to go beyond the basic needs and have added finer and more colourful things to our cityscape. Yet, when people ask me for books to provide an overview of the experience of our urban transformation, there are sadly very few. Singaporeans are more workers than writers. Not enough people have recorded how we did it, or shared the expe- ence with people in other countries, or even with our own younger urban planners and administrators who are less familiar with the historical perspective. This matter is becoming very pressing as most pioneers who went through the start up process of transformation have retired by now."
