When it comes to celebrating your dream wedding, you will want to do it at a place where it's either big enough to contain all your guests, cozy enough for your guests and you to feel comfortable, or somewhere which holds some form of sentimental value.

Don't let your wedding venue ideas be confined to just hotel ballrooms - here are a few options to give you an idea of where to hold your wedding reception.

Hotel Ballroom


Ballrooms can usually handle a crowd of around 300 - 1000 people, depending on the hotel of your choice. It's relatively easy to organize a wedding at a hotel venue because they can arrange everything for you, from catering, to decor - as long as you tell them exactly what you want, they should be able to do it for you.

Hotels usually charge an average of RM100-200 a head. Choose your menu wisely if you don't want to spend too much. Hotels usually have wedding packages which easily accommodate wedding receptions. Plus, they'll throw in a room or two for the bridal couple and their entourage!

Popular hotel options: Holiday Villa Subang, Westin Kuala Lumpur, The Marriot Kuala Lumpur, The Hilton KL, Shangri-La Hotel KL, Mandarin Oriental KL, Prince Hotel KL,Carcosa Seri Negara,Equatorial Hotel KL,Hotel Maya KL,Concorde Shah Alam, Cyberview Lodge Cyberjaya,

Renting a community hall may be cheaper than renting a ballroom at a hotel. Some halls have event organizing services which can help you decorate and setup the room for your wedding reception. However some cheaper halls may require you to take on extra tasks such as ordering tables, chairs, carpets and doing your own decorations. Catering can be arranged with the hall, or you may have to scout your own caterer.

Garden Weddings

If you have a lovely backyard or know someone who's willing to lend you their backyard for a day, it would be perfect for a garden wedding. Bear in mind that you'll have to source table and seat rentals, catering and decor. However if you can't find a garden to get married or throw a reception in, there are some hotels who offer the perfect setting, plus they would have wedding packages ready to be selected. However, it may be a bit costly.

Beach Weddings


The only problem with beach weddings is that you have to locate a beach to fulfill your wedding dreams! For the city chick, you will have to get everyone to the nearest beach. However it's your big day, and chances are that most of your nearest and dearest will attend, so you won't have to spend much on catering or services. While the nearest decent beach to KL is in Port Dickson, don't be afraid to venture out to places like Penang Island, Langkawi, Kuantan, or Pangkor. Or if you really fancy it, have it in Bali, Phuket, or Krabi!

Restaurant Weddings

Organizing a wedding at a restaurant with ample space could prove great for you as you would have chosen it for your fondness of their food! Not all restaurants will accommodate wedding receptions but there is no harm in asking them if they would. Bear in mind that you can always sit down with the restaurant and discuss a package that's right for you. You won't necessarily have to rent tables and chairs, but you may have to decorate the area yourself if the restaurant doesn't offer full wedding services.
