Planning an intimate celebration? The Harbour View suites provide the perfect setting for a small sit-down meal or cocktail reception — with views overlooking the bay area and city skyline. If your guestlist numbers in the hundreds, consider the magnificent Oriental Ballroom, where your guests will dine in regal splendour under grand chandeliers. Have every detail of your day planned out by their experienced wedding consultants, right down to the four distinct themes that you can pick for the decor of your special day.

You’ll also want your guests to be well fed. The hotel caters for every situation you can think of, with sit-down Western meals, to Chinese-style banquets, or even a fuss-free buffet. Treats that you can expect for your dinner reception include a stunning Macaron Garden; or a fun Salsa Bar with homemade dips and chips. Dinner itself sees plenty of customisation options for the Chinese banquet menu. Create your own appetiser platter from 15 dish choices; and pick from choice options like an indulgent Slow-cooked Chicken Broth with Conpoy, Crabmeat and Hasma; and hearty Chardonnay Braised Pork Knuckle with Trio Mushrooms. Of course, it’s still your special day, and you deserve to unwind in the best way after an exhausting ceremony. Mandarin Oriental offers thoughtful pampering services, like champagne, cake, and chocolate-coated strawberries for the couple; as well as a night’s stay in the bridal suite, complete with breakfast Melt Café, and afternoon tea served in the comfort of your room. From now till 31 Dec 2019, your wedding at Mandarin Oriental Singapore can also give back to society. The hotel has partnered with MINDSET — an organisation that seeks to raise awareness on mental health — to offer small jars of candy as wedding favours. The jars of confectionary have had finishing touches put on by clients of MINDSET, and come in your choice of flavours.
