Thread: Wedding lunches
20-02-2011 02:42 PM #1
Is anyone doing a wedding lunch instead of a wedding dinner? Thinking of doing something simple and different.. Don't want to have a formula-based wedding which is more or less the same as every other wedding out there. However, relatives may expect something typical. What's a good way to have the best of both worlds?

Hi Jappyger, I am looking at a wedding lunch instead of dinner too! Wedding Lunches are quite common these days, I have been to a few friends weddings which were lunches and there isnt much difference between a dinner and lunch for the atmosphere wise. Sunday is a good day to have wedding lunch, your relatives and friends do not have to stay out until so late if its a wedding dinner as they have to work the next day as well.
As for relatives expecting something typical, I think if the wedding lunch banquet venue/ballroom is the same "standard" as how the other wedding dinners have been, it should be fine. Wedding lunch prices per table and min. table is lesser as well. So overall I think it's a good idea to have the banquet at lunch time!

hey happilyeverafter, hotels are a common place to have wedding lunch. you can find hotels packages here: http://www.perfectweddings.sg/forums...et-price-list/. i'm sure there are quite a few who offer wedding lunches.

Hi Jappyger, i had a colleague who did wedding lunch. apparently its better as you save on the liquor/wine/beer front as well.. and its a more intimate affair as there's more time to go ard to socialise.. hope this helps!
there's the standard 8 course wedding lunch.. and buffet lunch so depending on what you want.. im sure you can find something suitable.

I have attended one chinese wedding lunch 2 months ago and it ended at about 3.30pm. Everything seems to be the same like dinner just feel 2 great difference.
One I dun want to dress too formal like I would for dinner cause its in the afternoon.
Two after the lunch you have no issue of getting a cab home or go else where after that (this part I love it most!)
Oh on the other hand, wedding lunch is cheaper and as fairwenyan say also save on the liquor/wine/beer.

I am going with a wedding lunch too. I hate starting dinner late and end up your guests can only eat at 9pm. That is ridiculous

actually it is not true that wedding lunches are cheaper. i went to a few to enquire. conrad is charging 938. and i want to add in the option of a dessert buffet which is around 200-300++ extra per table. so overall it might be the same as a dinner

I have not seen conrad's prices yet, but based on the other hotels that I have seen, their dinner menus are normally $200-300++ more than lunches.
