    Thumbs up Wedding Banquet Venue for 200-250 or less..any suggestions?

    Hi all!

    I've recently confirmed my AD, so am currently in the process of sourcing for a venue. Unfortunately all my 'ideal' hotels St Regis, Capella, Mandarin etc impose a minimum criteria of 350 or more on weekend nights. Ritz has a minimum of 600!!!

    The search has been disappointing so far.. I highly doubt that we'll be able to come up with such a huge guestlist (of course we want to invite ppl who really matter, would be meaningless just to fill up the numbers). We don't have an actual guestlist yet so its really just based on pure estimation/gut feel.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions on where we can hold our dinner? Would like it to be a major hotel and a nice, memorable venue!! So far only Raffles Hotel fits the bill. Grand Hyatt has min. 200 - but not sure if the venue is nice, will trawl this forum further.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Aspenrealm,

    from your list of "ideal" hotels, it seems like you are looking at the high end ones :p. if you dont mind having it at a lower-end 5* or even a 4*, some of the hotels you can consider is Grand Copthorne Waterfront and Changi Village Hotel. like you, i didnt want to invite ppl just to fill up numbers and i had a difficult time finding a hotel tht will do less than min-25 tables on a wkend night. Changi Village Hotel has minimum 16 tables but the ballroom is strangely located at the basement. also, while the coordinator tells you it can hold a max of 25 tables, it will be way too cramped imho (ive gone down to do a recce). I signed up w GCW eventually -their grand ballroom needs a min of 40 tables, but the second biggest has a min 22-max 28 capacity which i thought is a good size. if you would like a looong march in, you can skip GCW though -that ballroom is rectangular, and the march in is along the breadth. hope this helps!

    Hi aspenrealm,

    You can try the following:
    Four Seasons
    Goodwood Park
    Hilton
    Mandarin Orchard (220 max)
    Novotel
    Swissotel Stamford (RCCC)

    In fact I like the concept of Grand Hyatt but they place is too small for us.. ;)

    I have a deposit of $1070 made for Raffles Country Club at San Shui Palace Restaurant. Banquet date(subject to availability), menu, number of tables(Min 10), bus transport etc are all open to negotiation with the Manager Miss Loke. The place is at Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim.

    If you're interested, please let me know your best offer. The view from the restaurant overlooks the golf course and reservoir.

    Check out the place at http://www.rcc.org.sg/corp/

    PM for pics.
