    It really depend on you.
    For us, we prefer lunch for the following reason:
    1) There is no break in between and end by 4~5pm (settle bill everything) and we can the rest of the night to ourselves
    2) Not too tiring for our guest as most guests need to work on the next day after PH. Same applied to Sunday lunch.
    3) Tea ceremony in the hotel(for the bride's side) and lunch reception start straight after ceremony, guests do not need to travel from bride's home to hotel. (These relatives will not be late since they are there)
    4) Cheaper than dinner (not apply to all hotels).
    5) More likely to get the date you want.

    Cons to factor in:
    1) Can be very rush due to list of agenda in the morning
    2) No Actual day photo taking session in other location
    3) lesser Ang Bao money as many people think lunch is very cheap
    4) No gate crashing montage video to show during banquet (normally they need at least 3-4hours to make a montage)
    5) Shorter time (Dinner from 7~11pm, lunch from 12:30~3pm)

    I think a wedding lunch is nice and less formal. Very causal and good for couples.

    i prefer dinner since the atmosphere is colder and more visitors can make it to your wedding.

    We choose wedding lunch because it's not really much of a hassle and at least the guests would not be too tired to participate

    For me, dinner is better since it'll be really hot during the lunch time

    I'm having both! Lunch wedding for family at a hotel, and dinner wedding for friends at a restaurant.

    We have a lot of guests flying in from overseas for the lunch wedding, and they told us they prefer lunch so they have time to fly back in evening, or take the night off to visit Singapore tourist spots.

    Personally, I feel lunch weddings have a more relaxed feel, and dinner weddings have a more glam feel, but both are lovely! It mainly depends on how you envision your day(s) to be like

    Dinner wedding is better for me. Not to stressful to wake up early in the morning to prepare for wedding
