23 Wedding Restaurants To Tie The Knot In Singapore Other Than Hotel Ballrooms

Through the years, it has been a tradition to hold big events, such as a wedding, in hotel ballrooms to accommodate more design, food, and guests. A lot of people believe that the bigger and grand the venue, the better. However, because times are changing the trends have also followed suit. Some would only choose to hold smaller and a more intimate wedding dinner not only to save money but to also make it more special. Hotel ballroom is commonly reserved for the more traditional ones. But it is completely up to you, the bride and groom if you choose to shy away from the usual and add flavor to your wedding day.

How will I choose between a hotel ballroom or a restaurant for the wedding reception?

In choosing whether to hold your ceremony in a hotel ballroom or restaurant, a lot of factors are needed to be considered. First of course would be your guest list. Do you intend to invite 50, 100, 200, or more people? How about the seating arrangements, are there guests that should not be in the same table? Second, will be the overall design. Will you add a lot of flowers? Do you want the spacing of the tables to be a far apart? Third consideration will be the logistics. If you will hold the ceremony at a different place, how far will the reception be? Will your guests be able to go there? Lastly, consider also the budget that you have prepared. How much are you willing to spend? Although some restaurants will cost the same, if not a lot, if you compare it with hotel ballrooms. Conversely, there are some that offer a lot less cheaper stuff but with high quality.

What and how do I choose the right restaurant?

Customer Reviews:

One of the better Chinese restaurant

A very nostalgic Chinese restaurant in Singapore. This is the Chinese restaurant that I will go to whenever the family is craving good Chinese cuisine.

I have visited the restaurant many times in the past, be it lunches or dinners, it has never disappointed us. The restaurant offers fresh seafood and patrons can actually choose their catch at the water tanks located outside the restaurant and choose they want them to be cooked. Their cooking style is more Hong Kong and it’s a must-visit if this is what you are looking for. They have dim sum as well which I find them pretty good as well. -Your_Travel_Buddy_SG

Great Ambience and Service

It was our first time visiting The Summerhouse for their dinner and to celebrate a birthday. Great ambience, service and food. Thank you to Nick and the team for taking care of us during the period and took note of all our request. The staff were very attentive and quick to attend to us even though we were sitting at the corner. They also took note that we were celebrating a birthday and presented a omplimentary cake. Highlight of the dinner was the Avocat Au Pecorino et Jaune D'oeuf and Purée de Pomme de Terre Fumée. Definitely will come back again and perhaps to try the Brunch next time around. -Natasha_Aaliyah

Highly recommend here if you want to have a small and intimate event.
