It’s only been over a week since Crazy Rich Asians has premiered in our local cinemas, and social media went absolutely fanatic over it.
So if you’re super up to date and have already caught the famed Crazy Rich Asians movie, one thing you must’ve been eyeballing over has to be the glamour, the lavish parties, the gowns… and perhaps wonder, is it even possible for an average Joe like yourself to throw a party on that kind of scale?
Sure, we may not all be Crazy Rich Asian socialites with a billionaire father who can afford to throw six-figure sums of money for the sake simply partying, so we’ve done a little investigating on where some socialites have partied, and who they were organised by, because hey, there might come a day you just might want to throw a super lavish party, money be damned.
If you follow the 44-year-old socialite, Jamie Chua on Instagram, chances are, you may or may not know aBite, a party planning company. And if you don’t, just think of the pretty recent Rose Gold themed party she threw just last year. Ringing any bells?
A white-and-rose-gold-themed party, the ultimate dream of millennials out there, fulfil your rose gold-filled dreams by putting aBite on your speed dial – because hey, you never know when you’ll have such a momentous occasion to throw a lavish party for yourself.
A party-planning company that specialises in quirky, classy-themed parties, such as an Hermes-themed party – think artfully created cookies like a Hermes handbag – including the logo! – a Gatsby themed party, amongst many other themed parties that can only be the things of dreams to us common folk. (In case you don’t know, Jamie Chua is most well-known for her incredible collection of Hermes handbags.)
With prices going from SGD880 (without all the customisation and just a single tiered cake!), if you wanna party it up like a crazy rich Asian, make sure to make this special day truly count!
2. The Wedding Entourage
A party-planning company that has famously helped organise Kim Lim’s super fancy 99-day celebration for her one-year old son, Kyden, The Wedding Entourage is another company to put on your to-call list.
