Other than considering what you really want/need for your banquet, some other tips if you really have to follow your in-laws or parents' wishes are: - Get your wedding dress from Taobao/qoo10: I got mine for cheap online and no one could tell it was that price. No one remembers my wedding dress anyway 2 years on. - Do you really need an expensive photoshoot? I got a freelance photographer (with good credentials of course) and freelance makeup artist and got the photoshoot that I want for keepsakes. - If you really need to spend, check out credit cards with the best rewards most suitable for you and your partner. E.g. Rebates, Miles or voucher redemption.

I personally bought insurance from a close and good friend. She didn't start out selling insurance and only switched over after a few years of working. I feel that if you buy from a non-friend agent, they might try and earn money from me more (as non-friends will not mind losing me as a connection). If you are worried about being difficult to reject your friends, maybe can take the chance to be more thick skin? Or at least that's what I do. If I feel that the plans are not what I require, I will just reject.

I know that there are a lot of websites that compares the rates of miles spent per distance and all. Personally though I converted the Citi miles to use for a nearby trip that I would have otherwise felt that it was a waste spending that amount on an SQ flight and felt good about it. So really, do read up on these and see what you feel the most comfortable doing.

I travel on average twice a year - once at the beginning of the year and another some time after the June holidays. I don't save up for a trip but I do save in general. Depending on my budget and how much I feel I want to spend, I'll set a budget for the trip. While booking a trip, I'll definitely research the heck out of it :) using different websites, cards/ShopBack cashbacks, etc. Hotel/resort websites usually gives quite a good rate+add ons so do check them out as well. Another tip is to try to book your holidays early for an even lower rate - the best would be 6 months ahead. Also, try and avoid the long weekends even though you may have to apply for leaves but you'll definitely save some $$ by avoiding the long weekends.

I have 2 - one from OCBC and one from Citibank. I only use the Citibank one however for the rewards points but I don't really like to keep track of so many bills so just left the Ocbc card aside.

My dad was a taxi driver and his discipline in recording and tallying his "accounts" everyday after work was just amazing. He wasn't well-educated but with his basic knowledge he would record down his earnings and spendings (i.e. petrol costs, repair costs, etc) in notebooks neatly. As a small child, I never knew what he was doing everyday after work and what those notes and numbers were but I understood the importance of this now that I'm working!

Not sure if this is counted but a friend I know has his kitchen fitted out with full oven, hob, hood and Smeg fridge just coz they look nice even though he doesn't really cook.

My mum has definitely influenced me in my financial journey. She grew up not well off and hence knew the importance of having rainy day money. Since young, she taught my sister and i the importance of putting money in the bank to let it grow via interest and that we have to save first before spending. They were basic ideas but it influenced me to think about how I can make my money grow through passive means and to learn and read more about it.
