Exclusive Celebration For The Newlyweds

Mar 01, 2020

The aspiration of the soon-to-be-weds, an intimate wedding banquet, an exclusive celebration in an exclusive ballroom of a hotel, without the need to share the event space. When this is the aim of a couple’s wedding plan, the task of locating a venue with a capacity that perfectly matches the size of the couple’s intended guest list is one that should be tackled early on in the planning process.

Couples who prefer a smaller, personalised wedding banquet hope to experience the following :

  • More meaningful personal interaction with those closest to them – family, relatives and close friends only.
  • Opportunity to select an enhanced menu, providing their guests a culinary experience while celebrating their union.

Some issues to consider :

  • Be firm on the size of your invite list as more intimate ballrooms will have a cap on capacity.
  • Layout of tables to ensure ease of movement and attention on the main table.
  • Maximising the use of the foyer for guest registration, a photobooth perhaps and the like.

A few suggestions :

  • Arrange for a venue recce to introduce your vendors to the hotel’s events team.
  • Be creative with the unique features of such an intimate ballroom.
