10 Wedding Planner 'Secrets' To Help You Decide Whether To Book Shangri La Singapore For Your Wedding

Today, in our series of 'Wedding Planners Review Of Wedding Venues in Singapore', we reveal the little-known 'secrets' about Shangri-La Singapore Hotel as a wedding venue.. so you can maximize location's potential to make your wedding simply unforgettable :)    

1. Shangri La Hotel Singapore is one of the trademark hotels in Singapore. Thanks to its brand-name around the world, many people would have heard of and recognize it for a certain standard of service and class.

2. Many function spaces (ballroom and function rooms) for you to choose from. Two popular wedding ballrooms in the hotel are 'Island Ballroom' and 'Tower Ballroom', which can accommodate 1000pax and 590pax respectively. Hence, if you have a huge guest list, do shortlist this hotel as one of the choices.

3. 'Garden Terrance' and 'Banyan Deck' at the Garden Wing will be ideal for you to host your intimate solemnisation ceremony before your wedding dinner and lunch.

4. High ceiling, pillar-less ballrooms and function rooms. Your guests will have a grand, unblocked view of your wedding. Very important to help your guests enjoy your decorations, walk-in, musicians/entertainment, emcee, etc.

5. 'Island Ballroom' has an existing fairy-lights background stage backdrop that you can use without topping-up more money. You can make use of aisle stands, included in your wedding package, to place them on stage, and you will have a ready-to-go stage.

6. Of course, if you have a theme in mind to create for your wedding (we love to work with you), go for it! Huge stage setup is what guests will never miss. So you can make sure that the impact is worthwhile.

Choose all tall table centerpiece if you want to make the room look filled. Choose a mixture of tall and low centerpieces if you like the idea of variety.

Work out with your hotel sales manager for individual serving (they do it for both Chinese and western cuisine), so your table centerpiece and other details such us customised table number, menu card can stay on the tables throughout the wedding.

7. Cocktail area is exclusive for each ballroom hence it is unlikely that your guest will get mixed up about whose event they are attending. Providing a welcome-cocktail to match with your wedding theme color is also included in some of the Shangri-La wedding packages.

 From our experience of planning weddings at Shangri hotel, it's been popular to keep guests occupied with: dessert/pre-snack table, photobooth, red-carpet signing backdrop, photo-taking backdrop, wishing tree. With more than sufficient space, you shouldn't have any problem hosting your guest and all these activities.

8. Being one of the big hotels in Singapore, Shangri-La Singapore has a vast choice of guest room or suite for both the wedding couple and guests. Hence, you can host your overseas guests in the same hotel as your wedding. This minimizes their problem of traveling. Since shuttle bus is provided by hotel, for in-house guests, to places such as Orchard Road, your guests can still conveniently get their fix of Singapore food and shopping, and still make it back for your wedding punctually.

9. Don't worry if your suite is located in a different wing from the wedding ballroom. Shangri La Singapore Hotel provides a 'changing-and-make-up room' just next to the ballroom so you can do your second or third outfit-change without walking very far! Just make sure you get help to bring down the necessary-items from your room before the wedding. Please note, there is no safe in this changing room. Hence, have someone you can trust to lock your gifts and angbaos in the safe inside your room suite.

10. With a huge guest list, you may receive more angbaos than your room safe can fit (good right?). To solve this problem, ask for a second safe or use the one in your parents room (if any).
