Choose your Wedding Venue
Think about your ideal location
Thinking about location can help you narrow down your wedding venue choices. What type of backdrop or ambience would you like at your wedding? Does the location matter for your guests (central and easily accessible)? Do you want an indoor or outdoor wedding? Would you prefer an intimate occasion or something grander?
For our own wedding, we loved the idea of a beach wedding – a sunset solemnisation followed by an indoor reception, so we narrowed our choices down to beach wedding venues in Singapore. You can view the venues by theme above, or find a wedding venue to suit your theme here.
Tip: Always recee your potential venue before making a deposit. If you are looking at an outdoor venue, ensure that the venue has a flexible backup solution in the event of rainy weather.
How many guests are you inviting?
Do a rough draft of your guestlist and have an idea of how many guests you are planning to invite. We made a list of our family members, relatives, and friends and also made sure to asterisk the VIPs so we would not miss out on having them.
Are you looking for something intimate or grand? Most restaurants can accommodate 100 – 150 guests, and hotel ballrooms can accommodate anywhere from 100 to 500 guests. For costing, restaurants usually have a minimum spend to book out the venue, and ballrooms have a minimum capacity count.
Tip: When planning for your capacity, do buffer for some additional last-minute guest additions.
What is your rough budget in mind?
Your wedding reception will be the bulk of your wedding cost. You can plan your budget according to how many guests you want to have and how much you plan to allocate for each guest.
Depending on your chosen venue, on average, Chinese banquet weddings in hotels usually cost about $150 – $200++ per guest (depending on the number of courses and your selected venue). Some venues can go up to $250 or more per guest for a more lavish spread and ambience. You can opt for a lunch event to lower your cost by about 20-30%.
Restaurants and cafes would often present a set course menu, with some restaurants offering buffet options. Pricings vary and would depend on your venue choice.
While we might think alternative venues like restaurants or parks may be cheaper, it may or may not be the case. This ultimately depends on the inclusions. Alternative venues usually function on a per-head ala-carte basis, whereas ballrooms go by the table and tend to have more inclusions in their packages (complimentary hotel room, decorations, wedding favours, champagne pouring). Ballrooms also tend to have staging included.
Do a comparison between your shortlisted packages to see which is of better value as it depends on which inclusions you prioritise.
