An outdoor wedding or an indoor one? An intimate affair or a more raucous, lively event? If you can’t make up your mind, The Jewel Box has four options to satisfy all your wedding-day wants.
Its Black Opal restaurant is an opulent and sophisticated mix of black and white, and allows a maximum of 42 guests -- so if you’re planning a solemnisation just for family and friends, this would be the place. Its floor-to-ceiling glass panels has a gorgeous view of the Sentosa harbour and we can only imagine how pretty this would be at sunset.
For those who want to brave the unpredictable weather and hold an outdoor wedding, The Jewel Box’s Sapphire space is perfect -- a small, romantic two-person canopy can be built for the couple to say their vows under.
Guests can then be ushered to the cover eating area to enjoy the view, the food and mingle. Still, your guests would probably appreciate it if you held the event in the evening when temperatures are cooler.
Our favourite venue is probably the Empress Jade restaurant. Think “Chinese restaurant” and gaudy colours, outdated furniture come to mind. Not here, though. This is modern-chic Oriental and is for the couple who wants to satisfy their families’ traditional desires without sacrificing their own tastes.
And the most luxurious of all the Jewel Box’s venues -- the Diamond Palace Ballroom which holds up to 20 tables. It sets itself apart from typical hotel ballrooms with subtle colours and tasteful lighting. The best part? Curtains at the front of the room can be drawn to reveal floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and show off the grand views of the harbour and cable cars. Imagine toasting your new marital status with the night sky behind you.
All venues come with different set menus to choose from and the event planning team at The Jewel Box can assist in choosing vendors, from florists to stationers. Last-minute weddings are not a problem for them too -- just contact them at least three months ahead.
