Weddings By The Sea In Penang

Jan 01, 2019

If your aspiration is to exchange your vows during a wedding ceremony fronting the sea at a local resort, then Batu Ferringhi in Penang is a location that should be on your shortlist. Coupled with spectacular sunsets, this famed stretch of beach on the island will certainly cast a spell on all those in attendance, ensuring that your celebration will be one to remember.

As part of the planning process and when contemplating which resort to host your wedding at, consider some of the following factors :

  • What is the size of your intended guest list and the capacity of the resort.
  • Will all your guests stay at your chosen resort or will you be providing them with options depending on their budget?
  • The resort where you have selected to tie-the-knot would be able to offer preferential rates to your guests. And it is certainly logistically easier to manage if all of them were to be accommodated at the same venue.
  • The chance to say ‘I do’ on landscaped gardens facing the sea or on the beach itself.
  • An alfresco wedding reception or perhaps an indoor banquet as well, either in a ballroom or a more casual restaurant-setting, even in an elegant marquee perhaps?
  • A buffet or sit-down dinner? Will you be incorporating some of the local food that Penang is famous for in your menu?
  • The backup plan offered by the resort and agreed to by you, should the weather not cooperate.
  • The cost of wedding packages as well as rooms, in relation to your wedding budget.
