P/S: If you’d like the complete list of items by dialect group, we created infographics in another article titled Guo Da Li – The Complete Guide.




What is Guo Da Li?


One of the traditional Singapore Chinese wedding ceremonies is the Guo Da Li (过大礼)ceremony. It’s an age-old Chinese betrothal tradition that blesses the newlyweds with a blissful, happy and fruitful marriage. Both families of the bride and groom meet formally and exchange gifts.


The items vary from dialect group to dialect group. Fortunately, they are more similar than they are different. However, there is a set of things you are supposed to have. Modern practice is to discuss the list of items with your fiancé and families. This is to come to a mutual agreement on items you’d like to include or exclude.


Let’s get down to why you’re really here; you’re running out of time and you need to find these items ASAP. Well don’t worry, we’ve looked and found 10 places that have your Guo Da Li needs. Some of them have less of a storied history than others but they’re sure to have what you need.


In no particular order, let’s count them down.

A relatively new entrant to the market, Golden Happiness was started by Jeffrey and Eyvon Ng in 2008. Since then, they’ve been featured on 8 days Magazine to highlight wedding traditions. They also collaborated with Poh Heng Jewellery to participate in a workshop on the same topic.


On their website, they’ve created different product lists for the various dialect groups to ease the buying process. Now THAT is customer service! You can find these distinct lists in the dropdown menu for The Traditional Wedding Story. So get started!

Who are they?

Since the wedding chamber started in 2005, it has grown it’s supply from around Asia. Their items are sourced from Malaysia, Taiwan, China and Hong Kong to bring you quality product. Like the other shops, they want to preserve culture of traditional marriage here in Singapore.


What’s interesting about the variety of their Guo Da Li set lists is they have options to leave certain items out. This is so you can customize your betrothal gifts with items from elsewhere. This gives you some leeway for tailoring your ceremony the way you like.


Much like the other entrants, they also offer traditional services like door step or wedding consultations. They also offer modern services like wedding aqua vitae and, potentially, car decoration. An interesting turn to be sure.

In the dropdown menu for their packages, they’ve neatly arranged your ceremony needs by dialect. But, unlike the other shops on this list, their wedding services are the modern sort. Everything from wedding catering to photography, they’ve got links to service providers.

This list, Our Gift To you


There is no doubt in our minds that you want the best for your beloved. You want to make this day as special as possible! But that doesn’t mean you need run to one end of Singapore looking for combs and another looking for red packets.


We hope that this list has given you some peace of mind and allowed you to focus on other aspects of the ceremony. Let’s not forget, weddings are for the bride and groom. To get lost in preparation is certainly not ideal!
