Just got hitched? Fengshui consultant Wilfred Leu, who has more than 13 years of experience in the industry, dishes his top tips for newlyweds, their new home and relationship advice. 

#1 Get a new bed 

Always have a new bed - this symbolises a fresh start and energy. Don't forget to sun the bedsheets too. It draws the Yang or positive energy from the sun. It is even better if a proper fengshui consultant can select appropriate dates and times to sun the sheets and set the bed. 

#2 Picture perfect

In your new matrmonial home, it's good to have pictures of you and your spouse, or a symbol of the both of you together.

#3 Want good children?

Couples looking to start a family, there are specific dates that are best for each couple to consummate. Check with your fengshui consultant for suitable dates. Ask him/her on the methodology that they would use. 

#4 Reconsider gatecrashing 

While it provides much fun and a lively ambience, gatecrashing isn't considered a good practice when it comes to fengshui - it denotes the groom giving other women money even before getting married.

#5 His best advice for couples

"It all boils down to acceptance - for example, after getting married, you realise you can't get along with his/her parents. What can you really do? Accept and compromise. Couples should also pick a wedding date that doesn't clash with the parents birth dates from both sides."
