Ballroom Rental Guide

Ballroom Rental in Singapore

When looking for a place, you might see "Banquet Hall" or "Ballroom" as one of the categories. Ballrooms are large rooms with minimal furniture that can be used for various types of events. In the past, most balls were held in private homes. However, many mansions and hotels nowadays have one or more ballrooms. Oftentimes, a large room like the main drawing room, a long gallery, or a hall could be used as a ballroom. These rooms often have stone or wood flooring.

In general, ballrooms have a lot of space, and their ceilings may be higher than those of other rooms. Also, they are made to be big so that the sound of orchestras can travel well through the whole space. They often have a stage at the front of the room where the host or a special guest can make a speech. This stage can also be used by instrumentalists, singers, or performers. 

What are the benefits of having your event in a ballroom?

A ballroom has a plethora of benefits and unique features that are hard to find in other types of venues. Take a look at some of them below:

  • Reliability
    Since ballrooms are always inside a building, you won't have to worry about rain, snow, or heat on the day of your event. This makes a ballroom reliable. Checking your weather app several times a day in the week before your event is not the best way to get excited. Events that take place outdoors are often affected by things like the weather, wind, and lighting. No matter how the weather changes, what you plan six months in advance will still be the same when you book a ballroom.

  • Grandeur
    Since ballrooms usually have high ceilings and a lot of floor space, events that take place in them often feel grand and elegant. When you walk into a ballroom, you might think they are very important because of how big it is and how the place shouts elegance.

  • Customisation
    One of the best things about a ballroom-style event is that it gives you room to be creative. You are not limited to just one space or one seating arrangement. Also, most ballrooms have neutral colours, which make it easy for your main decorations to blend in with the background. When your walls are black, silver, or have simple patterns, you have more freedom to make the space fit your theme by using your own bright colours as the main design element. The more flexible a space is, the more ways it can be changed to meet your needs and preferences. 
Three events you can do in a ballroom

When you start to plan your big day, one of the first things you should do is choose the right venue. Booking a ballroom can be your best choice, depending on the type of event you are organising. Check out the three most common events that can be held in a ballroom below:

  1. Weddings
    Reception halls, event spaces, and churches are all excellent choices for wedding venues. However, smart brides want a place that can handle the wedding, the food, the music, and the atmosphere all at once. Because of these essential benefits, finding a wedding ballroom might be the best bet.

    Allows for a worry-free wedding
    It's vital not to be too busy rushing around and worrying about the little things that need to be taken care of to make sure everything goes smoothly. You can avoid being a "bridezilla" or missing out on your big day by booking a ballroom venue. Some ballroom venues have event planners who can take care of everything, from the decorations and food to the musicians, and even a particular vehicle for the couple to arrive and leave in. You can remember the day as a bride instead of a micromanager, and your guests will remember the bright, carefree smile you wore the whole time.

    Prevents you from worrying about the weather
    The weather in Singapore can change in an instant, making even the nicest days miserable. If you choose an indoor venue like a ballroom, no bad weather can ruin your event. This way, your guests won't remember running inside because of a storm, biting cold, or chilly winds.

    Lets you have your wedding ceremony and reception in one venue
    Since it's likely that some guests will come from far away, doing what you can to make things as easy as possible for them will not only be remembered but also appreciated. You can make it easier for your guests to come to your wedding by having the ceremony and reception in the same place. This will make it possible for people to be there for the whole ceremony, even after it's over. 

  2. Social dance parties
    Social dance parties allow you to practice the moves you just learned, meet new people, and just have fun dancing. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable, which makes it a great place to have good times and great memories. A social dance party is a type of social gathering with a DJ or live music and open dancing. It could take place in a ballroom. Usually, this event will have a specific type of dance, like swing, salsa, ballroom, or a mix of these. Most dances follow a standard format, which includes a short dance lesson at the beginning, followed by an open dance floor that stays open until the end of the night. There is a unique culture that goes along with social dances. When you go to your first social dance, you'll notice these few things: 

    People are rarely drunk
    Unlike dancing in clubs and bars, social dancers don't need "liquid courage" as they dominate the dance floor. This is because the dance lessons they have taken have given them the confidence to dance on their own. 

    Dancing is the main goal
    Even though a lot of people who go to social dances are "single and might be looking," the main reason they go is to dance. Playfulness and flirting are essential parts of social dancing, but only for the duration of the song. If you happen to meet someone interesting on the floor, you can always start a conversation with them. But the most important thing is the dancing. 

    Couples get to enjoy more independence
    The goal is to get good enough at dancing that you can do it with anyone, anywhere, at any time. It's not about spending the whole night holding hands with your partner. Couples who have taken lessons together might go to the same dance together. But once they get there, they might split up and dance with different people for a few songs, then come back and dance with each other before going their separate ways again. It might feel strange at first to see your significant other with someone else, but if you remember point number two, you will quickly get used to the situation. 

    Social dancing requires you to think on your feet
    It's not about memorising steps. It means being able to use what you already know in new situations as they come up. It's like playing a sport: you might learn all the skills, but you never really know how the game will go. It's less important to do a series of flashy moves perfectly than to pay attention to how you and your partner move together during the dance. 

  3. Dinner and dance
    One of the best things to look forward to after a year of hard work at your job or in your organisation is the annual dinner, which is held to celebrate what everyone has done. A social event, like dinner and dance, is where people get together to socialise, eat, and have a good time. Finding the best place for a dinner dance event might not be something that gets you excited. This is because there are so many venues right now that you either have too many options or don't know which one to go to. If you don't know where to go, you might as well settle in a ballroom. Here, you can listen to music, talk, and dance. At dinner dances, most of the action takes place on the dance floor. Dancing is fun, but it's also a great way to meet new people and make new friends.
