Wedding Settings At Batu Ferringhi

May 01, 2020

A garden wedding by the sea followed by an alfresco reception, or perhaps an elegant dinner party in a marquee set in landscaped gardens, or even an extravagant wedding banquet in a ballroom. All these settings are possible at Batu Ferringhi, making it a venue attractive to both couples planning for a destination wedding or those who reside in Penang.

When making plans, determine the following during discussions with the resort :

  • The capacities of each venue.
  • The cost or minimum spend required to book out the respective venues.
  • What the backup plans are should it rain during a planned outdoor wedding.
  • The variety of wedding packages and their respective price points.
  • Preferential room rates for guests travelling from abroad or interstate.

Also, get ideas from your appointed wedding vendors, particularly those who are familiar with the resort where you plan to host your wedding celebrations. Other than the resort’s events team, these vendors are the ones who will know the ins and outs of doing weddings there.
