Wedding Splendour by The River @ Swissôtel Merchant Court

Planning and shopping for a wedding may not be as enjoyable and joyful as your actual wedding day itself but with the right assistance, it can be. Wedding shows are the perfect assistants to brides-to-be planning for their wedding as they get to tour around the hotel and browse through a selection of wedding related vendors under one roof, much like Swissôtel Merchant Court’s wedding showcase, Wedding Splendour by the River.

Swissôtel Merchant Court Singapore is conveniently located by Clarke Quay and easily accessible by MRT with Clarke Quay MRT station situated just beside it. Wedding Splendour by the River was held on 16 March 2013 at the Merchant Court Ballroom, where 110 couples enjoyed an afternoon bridal fashion show by Amanda Lee Weddings, browsed the booths offering wedding related services and partook in a delicious high-tea buffet spread by Swissôtel Merchant Court.

The Merchant Court Ballroom is perfect for a big wedding celebration as the spacious room can seat up to 500 guests. Its columnless feature also means each and every one of your guest will be able to enjoy an unobstructed view of your big day regardless of where they are seated. The Ballroom also features an impressive high ceiling and floor-to-ceiling glass windows, further accentuating its spaciousness. For Wedding Splendour by the River, the Ballroom played host to a T-shaped stage for Amanda Lee Weddings’ bridal fashion show, showcases of two of Swissôtel Merchant Court’s wedding themes and several booths by the hotel’s official partners. Couples had the freedom to browse through these booths and enquire about the services and products they offered.

Swissôtel Merchant Court’s dedicated team of Catering Sales managers were also on hand to provide assistance to couples and introduced them to their latest wedding banquet packages and three wedding themes, Oriental Romance, Enchanted Garden and Crystal Splendour. Couples also had the opportunity to go on on-site tours to view the Bridal Suite, Bridal Studio Room, the wedding coordinators’ room and the poolside pavilion for a close-up view of the actual set-ups.

Couples adjourned to the cocktail area outside the Ballroom for a delectable high-tea buffet after the inspiring bridal fashion show by Amanda Lee Weddings that showcased a series of luxurious wedding and evening gowns. A wine booth was also specially set up at the wedding show for couples to sample the different types of wine and receive tips on selecting the perfect wine for their big day. A lucky draw marked the end of Wedding Splendour by the River after 15 prizes, including a grand prize of a wedding dinner banquet fully sponsored by Swissôtel Merchant Court, were given away to the lucky winners.

In addition, couples who attended Wedding Splendour by the River were entitled to the special offers from the hotel’s official partners, as well as exclusive benefits from Swissôtel Merchant Court such as the complimentary usage of the poolside pavilion with full floral decoration for a wedding solemnisation on the actual wedding day, reduced quantity for the minimum number of tables, free flow of beer and 1 bottle of wine per confirmed table and more. If you’ve missed the wedding show, you’d be glad to hear that an extended offer awaits you from 1 April to 30 June 2013.
