Getting married is a big deal. It's also an occasion where budget is a key consideration (unless you're the likes of Taylor Swift). Deciding on the location is the 1st step to getting the party started. Here are eight beautiful venues to host the wedding of a lifetime
With the upcoming GST increase on 1 January 2023, many of you ready-to-wed couples are probably sealing the deal on your wedding location.
Either way, your wedding location is a topic that will make the biggest impact on your wedding budget. If you’re wondering about a more creative way of celebrating your matrimony, and you know, break with convention but not break the bank, well, we’re on the same page.
There’s no denying that money can be a significant source of stress in your relationship, not to mention your wedding planning. You may have found Mr/Ms Right, but there is no right answer to what you should or should not spend on.
The groom, for instance, may not think 100 extra white roses count as essential, but to the bride, fresh flowers are simply non-negotiable. Many couples are taking a more thoughtful approach to weddings, cutting down fluff to focus on those that matter to them the most.
So, let’s start with the location, shall we?

Capacity: 100 to 238 seated guests
Services: Floral arrangements, bridal gowns, make-up artist, wedding decorations and set-up, event planning and management services
Looking for a super accessible location with stunning views to mark this momentous occasion? Located at level 55 of Ion Orchard, a celebration here is a real treat for the senses. Surrounded by a panoramic 180-degree view of the cityscape, this destination dining spot promises a warm ambience flooded with natural lighting.
The menu offers a well-designed array of delicacies that are sure to please even the fussiest palates.

If you're planning to give your guests a luxurious, non-hotel dining experience, consider Jewel at Changi Airport.

Jewel offers a range of indoor locations for both wedding banquets and solemnisation ceremonies. Under the wedding banquet package at Cloud 9 Piazza, you can choose between a 6-Course Chinese Banquet or a 4-Course Western Set.
With the majestic HSBC Rain Vortex providing a spectacular backdrop for photo and video taking, you could say it's the next best thing to hosting a destination wedding (at a fraction of the budget).
