A couple gets married in Gong Cha outlet in Australia – and everyone is impressed at how they were able to save a lot of money by doing it there. Why did they choose to get married there? Well, it’s their favorite hangout, so they wanted to tie the knot where they’re always having their date.
Couple Marries in Gong Cha Outlet
Everyone knows that getting married can be so expensive, what with the venue rental and the high cost of the meals, per plate!
But budget-savvy couples are saving a lot of money by going against convention and getting married in places that people didn’t think would work as a wedding venue. Others still have the ceremony in a church, then find an inexpensive venue afterward.
In the Philippines, for example, a couple had their reception at a fast food outlet. They enjoyed chicken inasal and unli-rice with their guests, for just a few thousand pesos.
But they’re not the only ones who saved money with an unconventional wedding reception.
Leopard Pang, 25, who hails from Singapore, went to Australia in 2019 for his studies. He met Gina who stayed in the same uni accommodations at the time.
The two fell in love and, well, the rest was history.
“We started dating not long after and I proposed to her in May 2021,” Leonard explained.
Due to COVID restrictions, Leonard’s family wasn’t able to travel from Singapore to Australia. So, the two decided that they’d proceed with a low-key wedding at their favorite hangout.
“The entire wedding was reasonably cheap and relatively stress-free. Some of my friends and coworkers were surprised about how carefree we were in the days leading up to the wedding,” he added.
He also explained that they had plenty of fond memories at the place.
Their wedding menu is simple: sausage buns and light refreshments.
“Your wedding should be about the celebration of two people coming together and deciding to be with each other forever – everything else is secondary, so just do what you want,” he said.
