Oct 01, 2019

For soon-to-be-wed couples and their families who place much important on Chinese cuisine for their wedding banquet, choosing a venue that specialises in such cuisine is certainly the way to go.

Factor to consider when shortlisting potential venues to host your wedding banquet :

  • Location of the venue and ease of access for your guests.
  • Capacity of the venue versus the size of your guest list.
  • The minimum number of tables that need to be booked in order to secure the venue on an exclusive basis.
  • Parking facilities and costs, if any.
  • Choice of wedding packages, how comprehensive they are, and pricing levels.
  • Variety of menus for selection.

If a thematic celebration is what you are contemplating, then having a team of wedding vendors that can coordinate with the venue is advisable. Typically, they may include :

  • Wedding planner.
  • Floral designer.
  • Decorator.
  • Cake designer.
  • Stationer.

A few more suggestions :

  • Have a discussion with the venue’s wedding team if you wish to have a customised menu.
  • Determine time allotted for setup and teardown especially if there is much decoration to be done.
