It might just be where you could get your inspiration from for your own nuptial. There is also an accompanying forum on the site where you could connect with fellow other brides/grooms-to-be.
The Wedding Scoop
Though currently on a hiatus, The Wedding Scoop remains a very useful resource for brides seeking inspiration for their wedding dresses and gowns. The publication is like a catalogue for many bridal trunk shows featuring wedding gown designers all over the world such as Berta, Claire Pettibone, Galia Lahav, and Michael Cinco. It is also a great place to get an inside look on local influencers’ weddings such as that of Mong Chin (aka Mongabong) or Rachel Wee’s.
The Wed Mag
Newly established, The Wed Mag is more than just a wedding resource. It is also a community that is in the making, comprising of some of the best wedding vendors in Singapore.

Many might view SMP as the MVP in wedding publications so much so that when the then site owners decided to cease its operation, the site’s original founders swooped in to take it back.

From French vineyard to Italian chapel, SMP features all the weddings that we could only dream of living here in the tropics. Yet, it doesn’t hurt to get some inspiration that can be infused in a local setting. If you’re one for pastel hues, romantic settings, and bright imagery, SMP is the place for you.
