A Banquet To Celebrate In Melaka

Dec 01, 2018

Happy occasions here in our country often end with a celebratory meal, what more a wedding! And certainly, a wedding definitely calls for a big celebration. For most, this takes the form of a wedding banquet, and hosting it in a sprawling ballroom of a hotel very much allows for a celebration with an extensive guest list, giving you and your family the opportunity to invite those near and far to join in this joyous occasion.

Consider the following when planning for the celebration :

  • Can the size of your guest list fill the entire ballroom to avoid having to share the venue with another couple?
  • Another alternative would be taking up a smaller ballroom or function room in the hotel, or perhaps booking out an entire restaurant within the property. The latter option may also provide you with the chance to tailor your menu to the cuisine that is a signature of that particular restaurant.
  • The budget you have allocated in relation to the pricing structure of the hotel.

  • Perhaps organise a pre-wedding shoot around the historical town of Melaka.
  • Arrange sightseeing activities for your outstation guests.
