THE PIN­NA­CLE OF PRES­TIGE

Leave your big-day wor­ries in the ca­pa­ble hands of wed­ding ex­perts at The St Regis Sin­ga­pore, where unions are all about class, grandeur and the apex of per­son­al­i­sa­tion

Singapore Tatler Wedding - - CHIC SUITES -

Re­fine­ment and peace of mind is what ev­ery cou­ple wants on their big day, and at The St Regis Sin­ga­pore, you will get pre­cisely that. The ex­pe­ri­ence starts with your very own St Regis Wed­ding But­ler. Trained in the finer points of the leg­endary white-gloved ser­vice syn­ony­mous with the brand, they will at­tend to your ev­ery need. Be­yond wel­com­ing you to the plush ho­tel in the prime Tan­glin en­clave, help­ing you to set­tle into your bridal suite and ex­tend­ing a hand with pack­ing and un­pack­ing of lug­gage, your but­ler will be close by through­out your cel­e­bra­tion.

“They will en­sure your gown is crease­free and the groom’s shoes pol­ished to per­fec­tion ahead of the wed­ding. They will also see to it that the wed­ding team ex­e­cutes your event with flaw­less pre­ci­sion,” says Debby Se­ti­awan, di­rec­tor of events at the ho­tel. An­tic­i­pat­ing your ev­ery need, your in­tu­itive bridal as­sis­tant will en­sure you are well hy­drated in be­tween end­less ex­changes with guests, of­fer bridal bed­room slip­pers for your tired feet, as­sist at your tea cer­e­mony, and send a warm meal to your suite at the end of a long day.

The pil­lar­less John Ja­cob ball­room, boast­ing an 8.3m high ceil­ing and hand-cut chan­de­liers with crys­tals that dance in the light, should be booked at least a year ahead of your special day—al­though, if you are look­ing at an aus­pi­cious date, book­ing 18 months in ad­vance would be wise. Ca­pa­ble of ac­com­mo­dat­ing 420 guests, the space is also well-equipped with a wifi sys­tem and an in­te­grated au­dio-vis­ual sys­tem with drop-down pro­jec­tor.

Since a wed­ding is of­ten judged by its food of­fer­ings, feed your guests well. Whether you de­sire the fi­nesse of a Western menu or an au­then­tic Chi­nese menu, the culi­nary brigade will de­liver a sump­tu­ous af­fair, but to in­ject hints of per­son­al­ity into the ban­quet, you can cus­tomise the menu. A good host will re­mem­ber to find out about their guests’ special di­etary needs. With these de­tails, the chefs will avoid us­ing shell­fish, gluten, nuts or other in­gre­di­ents that trig­ger al­ler­gies. The ban­quet kitchen can also pro­vide ha­lal set menus. To toast the happy oc­ca­sion in true aris­to­cratic style, ask the ho­tel about cer­e­mo­nial cham­pagne saber­ing.

Whether you’ve al­ways dreamt of walk­ing into a ball­room with scenes from

all your favourite ci­ties, with Genghis Khan on a horse at one end, the glit­ter­ing Eif­fel tower at the other and San­torini in yet an­other, or you want to go Bo­hemian with a room full of pur­ple blooms, trust the wed­ding spe­cial­ists to bring your fan­tasy to life. In­deed, choos­ing a wed­ding venue is not just about the lo­ca­tion and ca­pac­ity but what you can do with it. Se­ti­awan sug­gests ways to make your wed­ding even more mem­o­rable: “The food truck con­cept has gained pop­u­lar­ity in re­cent years. Though more suited for out­door events, food carts can be an op­tion dur­ing a ball­room re­cep­tion, too. Deck the carts with your favourite treats, sweets and desserts. An­other favourite: live food sta­tions and be­spoke cock­tail bars to el­e­vate the mood.”

No de­tail is left to chance as the team cus­tomises ev­ery­thing down to cards and favours. So you can ar­rive in style, the ho­tel is the only one in Sin­ga­pore with a com­mis­sioned fleet of Bent­ley cars in­clud­ing the St Regis Sin­ga­pore Fly­ing Spur that’s per­fect for your grand entrance—and a mem­o­rable pre­lude to your new chap­ter as Mr and Mrs.
