The Blush wedding theme from Jen’s Signature
One of the most important considerations when choosing a wedding venue, the seating capacity of the hotel determines the scale of your celebration. As such, be sure to have an approximate estimation of the number of guests to better shortlist potential venues.
Alternatively, opt for hotels that offer diverse seating options – one of which is JEN Singapore Tanglin by Shangri-La. Housing up to 28 tables, the hotel is capable of hosting both grand celebrations and intimate ceremonies.
In addition to seating accommodations, pillarless venues such as the hotel’s Malacca, Penang and Temasek ballrooms are highly recommended as they allow guests to enjoy the celebrations, unobstructed. Plus, pillarless venues often appear more spacious and would allow you and your guests to enjoy the day in comfort.
Food, Glorious Food
With most wedding venues offer catering options, it’s essential to attend food tasting sessions, to ensure that the dishes are to your liking before making your decision. After all, what’s a celebration without good food? With established hotels such as JEN Singapore Tanglin by Shangri-La, rest assured that even the toughest of foodies will marvel at the skills of the experienced masterchefs.
Moreover, JEN Singapore Tanglin by Shangri-La’s wedding menu features eight brilliantly named courses that are perfect for the occasion. Delight your guests with equally tasty and punny dishes including Oh-fish-ially Into You and Shrimp-ly The Best for a banquet that adds to the celebratory atmosphere. You can also expect the hotel’s speciality dishes such as Steamed Mini Lotus Leaf Rice with Chinese Sausage and Shiitake Mushroom topped with XO Sauce, Pipa Duck and Salted Egg Fried Prawns that are sure to impress.
All in the Package
The Executive Suite
When sourcing for a venue, be sure to note the package details and what it entails. Apart from the dining packages that come with the venue, keep an eye out for additional add-ons including free-flow beverages, bridal suites and more.

Celestial Forest theme from Classic Collections
Depending on the theme of your wedding, choose to add a personal touch to the celebration with some DIY decor or, if you’re not exactly a hands-on couple, leave it to the professionals to decorate the venue. If you’re looking to reduce the number of tasks on your wedding to-do list, a professional stylist is recommended. On the other hand, some hotels do offer various wedding themes that complement their venues.
