You’re probably at that age where your friends are getting engaged, married or having kids. You’re probably one of them who just got engaged too!
Well, first off, congratulations. The fun part, unfortunately, will be left up to your bridesmaids and groomsmen to plan the bachelorette/bachelor parties, while you are left to the daunting task of planning out your own wedding. But fret not, Singapore has an amazing choice of wedding venues for you to choose from and plenty of amazing wedding planners to get the job done for you.
All you have to do is pick the venue! Break away from the traditional idea that weddings should only be held in hotels or a church.
Here are 7 top wedding locations that all your guests will ooh and ahh at:
1. For the classic but modern bride: The White Rabbit

If you have not heard about this place yet, be glad you are hearing about it now. This is one of the most idyllic places to hold a wedding, which will be able to encapsulate everything you will want in a classic yet modern wedding. The chapel turned restaurant is one of the most beautiful locations you will find that has both the indoor and outdoor charm. Expect good food for reasonable prices and you get to host up to 120 guests here.
2. For the sun-kissed bride: Tanjong Beach Club

If you’re the kind of bride who loves the sun, sand and sea, then Tanjong Beach Club will be your perfect wedding location. Enjoy a stunning view of the sunset as you recite your vows to each other – think of how breathtaking the photos will turn out! It’s great for couples who are generally very laid back and casual.
3. For the nature-loving bride: Burkill Hall

To be married in the lush setting of nature within Singapore Botanic Gardens is a dream for some brides. This dream can be made possible at Burkill Hall. It overlooks the National Orchid Garden, bonus points if that is your favourite flower! It can accommodate up to 180 guests and you will fit in perfectly with a flower crown.
4. For the bride who wants to keep things private: UNA at One Rochester
For some of us, weddings are meant to be kept as small and private as possible. Brides looking for something that is manageable, UNA is a great option. You get to choose between indoor and outdoor options (go with indoors, though!) and treat your guests to a haven of Spanish food.
5. For the oriental bride: Yan at National Gallery Singapore

Sometimes, we just need to strike that balance between doing what we want to do and what our parents want. Strongly imbued in our Asian culture is the element of respect towards elders. Most elders would prefer weddings that are done in Chinese restaurants, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it in one of the most beautiful Chinese restaurant in Singapore. Plus, Yan’s food is absolutely delicious and suggests its chef’s ingenuity in his creations.
6. For the super “atas” bride: Marina Bay Sands Skypark

Nothing can top this… literally. Because you will be at the very top of one of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks – Marina Bay Sands. A Marina Bay Sands wedding will be one that guests will speak of for years to come. The wedding will be as iconic as the building itself! Just be prepared to fork out a handsome sum as one of the most exclusive venues in Singapore does not come cheap!
7. For the adventurous bride: Faber Peak Private Dining Room

Get your guests up Mt Faber to celebrate the most important day of your life. They will get to enjoy stunning views of Singapore and it will provide for a beautiful backdrop. Apart from the breathtaking scenery, its allure is also for its modern interior and natural light streaming into the room. Whether you’re looking to host a small or big wedding, this versatile venue can cater to your needs.
