How many weddings have been held at Marina Bay Sands?

We host approximately 2 weddings a week but on very special dates, such as 23 October, we were very happy to celebrate the joyous day with 10 couples. We have helped many couples create their dream weddings. One particularly grand one was for a couple who booked the Sands Ballroom on the 5th floor of Sands Expo and Convention Center. For that one night, the entire ballroom was decked out in whimsical deco to reflect the theme of Alice in Wonderland. It came with a 3-D stage setup, lovely floral arrangements, a customized 6-tier wedding cake and a live band to play all of the couple’s favorite songs. Outside the ballroom, the pre-dinner reception was just as impressive – huge bushes were trimmed to look like rabbits, butterflies and horses. There were even seats around a small tree to add to the wonderland theme. The pre-dinner reception was off to a beautiful start with music being played on the piano while guests mingled and had champagne. To pull off 10 weddings successfully in one night, with the right level of attention to each couple, shows that our wedding team is capable of working under pressure and delivering service at their very best.
