    Hotels will not allow external catering, due to the risks of catering mishaps at their venue. Even most other respectable venues will minimally have their own list of "approved" caterers for your use. The benefit is that, there is therefore very low chance of the catering messing up your big day.

    If you are having a relatively small-scale event though, you could try looking just for smaller halls in clubs or CCs as venue, if you really have a preferred trusted catering you want to use.

    Hi,

    I recommend Raffles House @ FCP if you do not have too many people, you gotta source for your own caterers and decor (:

    Do PM me if you need any details!

    Cheers!

    best person to answer your quesiton would be the hotel venue manager (assuming if u have already booked for one) or if u have shortlisted a few venues, clarify with them 'cause I believe they won't want the guests to hold the hotel responsible for something that supposedly may arise from the external caterers?

    All the hotels will provide buffet/banquet for your event unless you require halal catering for your muslim guests and they do not have halal kitchen. Otherwise, if you already decided the hotel, the food will be provided by them.

    If you are open to having your wedding outside hotel, get a caterer to do up the decoration and provide food. I catered mine from Rasel, it was a pleasant wedding experience as they are very attentive to every details.

    I don;t think hotels allow external caterers. They prefer their own caterers. I think they're afraid to get bad publicity if the external caterers' service is bad.
