Sweelina: Happy for u that both ur parents r fine wif doing luncheon.
Have u tried d food at d venues u shortlisted? Can't give u much reviews abt them cos I havnt tried their cuisine b4. For Orchid Country Club, r u looking at Peach Garden Restaurant? Cos i hav recently attended a dinner banquet there & d food was gd. Serving portion also quite generous.
Timing will b tighter if u r having solemnization on d same day. So suggest if u hav gatecrash, hav it earlier.
My ROM over but I'll still hav my gatecrash earlier. Cos dun wana rush & have some window time in between each event to cater for any delays..

Hi sweelina: Have your coordinator do the time check for you during your wedding day so you won't exceed the time allocated for each. For the tea ceremony, you may also want to get your parents to gently remind your relatives to be on time for the luncheon cos some of the older generations will still show up "fashionably" late which may cause some delay on your timing.

About the venue, is OCC, Seletar CC and Furama City Centre the places both you and your HTB have shortlisted? Are there any particular factors you are looking out for? Would be easier to make a comparison between the 3 shortlisted venues if you have an idea of what you would want since all 3 would be within your budget.
Accessibility? Feel of the ballroom? Menu?
Good news is: You have already found not 1, but 3 options that you can consider! Challenging bit is to decide. Have a good chat with your HTB.

Now shortlisted to Seletar CC & OCC.. HTB prefer SCC cos is cheaper lolx & the feel of the ballroom is better.. OCC cost slightly more but is more accessible they provide shuttle bus@Yishun MRT which is better. SCC is only accesible by car so we may have to provide transport for guests that do not drive... HTB will respect my choice

any good hotels to suggest for lunch? personal experiences to share? i'm looking at a wedding dinner actually, but after looking at all the comments, i'm starting to think maybe lunch's not such a bad idea afterall. anws i've already had an evening ROM at illido, so i guess, one evening, one afternoon, the photos also got more contrast and more variety. (:

You guys can consider having caterers for wedding lunches too. Just attended a friend's wedding lunch at Hort Park recently. They used Purple Sage. I heard Orange Clove wedding workshop was last month and Purple Sage's one is coming up.

i still like the idea of the wedding luncheon...imagine having a whole afternoon free after the wedding is over...hahah! pan pacific sounds nice!

Haha, I am also in a dilemma! Lunch or dinner? Initially I wanted lunch as it seems more relaxing, then dinner after a friend said dinner can definitely earn more. I think the amount of red packets you will receive depends on the guests you are inviting as well, so invite wisely. I have also read somewhere that people normally do not state what kind of meal it is on their wedding invitation card, so I think it will help to state clearly - example, "lunch 9 course meal + desserts"? In that way, people may get an idea how much to give.

A wedding lunch is really a good idea. It will save you more money and the atmosphere would during the banquet would be less formal and more casual.
