Featuring the top 10 alternative and affordable wedding venues in Singapore! Throwing a lavish banquet in a hotel in Singapore is a thing of the past and financially “unwoke” given that we are in a pandemic situation currently. These key life events are usually conducted for groups of up to 100 people maximum usually. In a wedding setting, the couple will be counted towards the headcount while the solemniser and wedding vendors will be excluded. As such, throwing a wedding banquet in a hotel ballroom will only incur hefty expenses (which will unlikely be covered by the 48 red packets, or less, received).

We present an Alternative: Rented Wedding Venues

There are many other ways to hold a solemnisation or a wedding banquet, such as a rented space or a café. By using such spaces, the guests will get a unique experience while the couple can save on a substantial amount which can be used for their future child or next holiday.

An advantage of such wedding rental places is the low cost, from as low as $30 per hour. However, renting an affordable venue would likely mean that you will have to source for your own decorations, food, and audiovisual systems. Despite having to contact the food and audiovisual vendors, the accumulated cost of renting a wedding venue will definitely be lower than that of a banquet in a hotel. Check out the top alternative wedding spaces below!
