Looking for a wedding venue with a difference? Aside from stately and grand ballrooms, each of our top picks for venues--hotel or otherwise--has gorgeous solemnisation venues like within a marble column pavilion, pet-friendly garden terraces, stunning poolside venues and even a yacht. Better still, you can meet all these venues at our upcoming Hitcheed Wedding Wonderland!
1) Grand Copthorne Waterfront
This hotel has a range of ballrooms that accommodate intimate groups of just 70, all the way up to 65 tables in a banquet-style setting, while the large glass wall floods the ballroom with natural light and a view of a manicured garden and gazebo. For smaller groups, the Waterfront Ballroom and the Riverfront Ballroom can seat 280 and 200 guests respectively.
Always wanted to get married beside the water? The Promenade, along Singapore River is the perfect choice for solemnisations, or an outdoor wedding. We love the Greco-inspired columns adorned with elegant white blooms.

2) Hotel Fort Canning
Though this hotel has an astounding number of venues--10 to be exact--we love the outdoor spaces from the garden venues at the Garden Terrace and the Tisettanta Terrace to the poolside areas at the Mineral Pool and Sun Deck. Those preferring to seek refuge in the indoors will love the lavish HFC Grand Marquee (one of the best outdoor solemnisation and reception venues in Singapore), as well as the Legends Ballroom and the Glass House.
The grandest and largest venue is the HFC Grand Marquee, which can seat up to 1,000 persons, and boasts gorgeous chandeliers and ornate candlesticks. The state-of-the-art lighting that's completely computerised also allows you to change its hues to perfectly complement your theme--and your mood. For a grand banquet setting, try the Legends Ballroom, which can seat up to 460 persons or the Glass House for more intimate weddings, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows for amazing views of the lush surrounds.

The courtyard, La Terrasse is lined with lush greenery of trees and plants and flowering vines climbing on trellises. The space will be dressed up with a floral arch flanked by chairs for the guests to watch the monumental moments--don't worry, air-conditioned function rooms are nearby.

Looking for a more casual venue to hold your wedding in a more relaxed atmosphere? Try Panamericana, the ultimate casual bar-grill concept where you guests can feast on the best of the diverse cultures and cuisines of the 14 countries along the Pan-American Highway. It provides the feel of a destination wedding without you needing to travel overseas, and the spacious venue (more than 7,000 sq ft) features a spacious indoor dining area with floor-to-ceiling windows, a long verandah and a lawn looking out to the sea.
We recommend having your solemnisation at sunset, out on The Lawn, which can accommodate 150 guests standing around the venue, or 120 seated guests. A glorious floral arch perfectly complements the surrounding greenery and is the perfect garden wedding venue.
Head inside for dinner and drinks, which can seat up to 165 guests at the bar and grill, and accommodate 400 standing guests. Choose between a cocktail reception or a grill menu, and wow your guests with their signature cocktails like a Panamericana Espresso Martini, a Grown up Fanta, and a Champagne Absinth Colada. Food-wise, the restaurant is the only one in Singapore that houses an Argentinian Asador, so feast on tender grilled meats, seafood, game and grains. Wedding package prices are upon request.

6) Raffles Marina
Another great wedding venue by the sea is Raffles Marina, and we love the idea of having your solemnisation on a yacht. Located just a short walk from the Tuas Link MRT station, there are a variety of venues from you to choose from: the Poolside, the Lawn or the yacht for your solemnisation, which can seat from 50 to 800 persons. Continue the party at the Poolside and the Lawn with cocktails, buffet or dinner (for the Lawn).
If you and your guests prefer an indoor venue, try the ballroom, which seats up to 400 for a wedding dinner. There's an adjoining atrium for your guests to hang around while enjoying cocktails before the dinner commences.
