Finding Your Perfect Wedding Ceremony: 5 Unique Wedding Styles
From choosing your wedding decor to deciding on your wedding menu, there are many things involved when planning for your big day. However, before you can actually get started, you and your significant other will first have to decide on a wedding style, and in turn, a suitable wedding venue.
Whether it’s a classic grand ballroom affair, an informal and fun celebration, or a simple yet romantic solemnisation, here are 5 different wedding styles to help you find your dream wedding and venue easily!
1. Grand and formal

If you’re all for glitz and glamour, set your sights on a grand wedding in a ballroom. Such weddings often include a large guest list, a banquet, and an overall lavish celebration befitting of a momentous occasion such as your wedding. One such venue that can meet these requirements is none other than Orchard Hotel Singapore.
Having undergone a glamorous makeover recently, Orchard Hotel Singapore now boasts an opulent and pillarless ballroom that is one of Singapore’s largest at a whopping 10,000 sq ft. Its sheer size alone makes jaws drop, and besides being able to fit up to 1000 guests, it is also equipped with two floor-to-ceiling LED walls, statement lighting, and state-of-the-art audio-visual capabilities so that even the guests seated at the back of the ballroom can see and hear the stage and your wedding toast clearly.

2. Intimate and cosy

Perhaps a smaller, cosier celebration reserved for close-knit friends and family is more up your alley. Enjoy the highlights of a wedding – your march-in, revelling in well-wishes of your loved ones, and merrymaking – without fanfare and pleasantry!
For such an intimate affair, a restaurant or a cosy ballroom is a good venue choice. Besides being able to accommodate your wedding party comfortably at a more cost-effective price, it will also guarantee epicurean dishes.
Treat your kindred guests to authentic Cantonese cuisine at Copthorne King’s Hotel’s award-winning Tien Court Restaurant or ballroom, which will both be magically transformed with exquisite blooms and themed decor. Priding themselves on their impeccable hospitality and dedication to making your wedding a delightful occasion not just for you, but for your guests as well, you can rest assured that your friends and family will be in good hands with top-notch service from the restaurant staff.

After that, stick around to play a game of pool with your buddies or retreat to a chic alcove or loft-style room that’s cosy with a unique Scandinavian-like design to recharge before your next escapade as a married couple – your honeymoon!
