Hellen and I had the consensus of having our Holy Matrimony in a place more unique, a place our friends do not often go to. Our first few thoughts include finding an outdoor venue. It could be a garden setting or beach setting (not a poolside setting though), however there are a few considerations in our mind.
1. “HOT SPOT”. Singapore is not known for being a cool country (maybe in more sense than one)… the heat wave can cause massive outpouring of my fragrant perspiration and down-right discomfort for our guests. Especially for the older relatives (Kiong ah, jin rua! – Ah Kiong, very hot!).
2. “GOOD FOOD”. Catering could be unavailable for certain venues. This limits our choices and we are forced to using in-house catering at times. I do not like to be forced into settling for certain food without the chance of trying alternatives (Kiong ah, jin bo ho jia! – Ah Kiong, not nice to eat!).
3. “HONEY NO MONEY”. The price can be daunting in an outdoor setting, especially in the current economic climate… blah blah blah…

These are some of the venues we considered and the photos I have, Hellen has the better photos though…
Fort Canning – Fort Canning, one of the more popular outdoor wedding venues in Singapore. The tents here seems extensive, but I foresee the guests complaining abt the heat.
Japanese Garden – Not the best pic, but a pretty good view in the actual place. Did not really hear about people using this place. Romantic, garden wedding feels.
Hort Park – A ho(r)t and upcoming location for wedding. This setting looks impressive and is taken from the restaurant Kha, I think.
