Non-Hotel Wedding Venues

If you were like most little girls growing up, you probably would have given some thought to how your wedding would pan out. For most, waltzing down the main carpet of a grand hotel ballroom in a designer gown, surrounded by hundreds of friends and family is considered de rigueur.

However, as the price of hotel wedding tables hits a new high, Singaporean millennials are increasingly choosing to hold their weddings in alternative, non-hotel venues. Not only is renting non-hotel venues wallet-friendly, but it also allows for a more casual, relaxed wedding arrangement.

Be it a small wedding of 50 comprising of family and close friends or a more extravagant celebration with 200 guests, saying “I do” at one of these non-hotel wedding venues won’t put a hole in your wallet.

Non-Hotel Wedding Locations In Singapore

Though weddings are meant to be a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, it doesn’t mean you should blow your life savings on a single evening to make your special night memorable.

If anything, a poorly budgeted wedding can riddle you and your new spouse in financial debt, and cause unnecessary, unhappy arguments about money.

One tip to prevent marring your big day and to exercise financial responsibility is to use SingSaver to compare the various personal loans available across Singapore for a loan most suitable to fund your big day.

Both the Citibank Personal loan (4.27% per annum) and the HSBC personal loan (4.5% per annum) are great choices as they both have one of the lowest interest rates on the market.

If you have credit cards, make them work for you via cashback rebates when you use them to pay off loans. The cashback rebate from Standard Chartered Bank’s Unlimited Cashback of 1.5% and AMEX’s True Cashback of 3% does add up and can help you save more.

So plan your finances carefully and fully enjoy your wedding day!
