Why You Should Have Your Wedding in Macau!
Finding the best venue for your wedding is important. You want your day to be special, and the surroundings are a big part of that. Your venue sets the tone of the wedding and is what your guests will base their first impressions on. It’s therefore imperative you find one that gives off the right message. There may be no better place for that than Macau.
Macau is part of China that has historical connections to Portugal. This gives it a unique atmosphere that’s different from other parts of the region. It’s also the only part of China where casinos are allowed to operate. Therefore, it is a popular destination for Chinese and foreigners alike.
Macau has become the world’s biggest casino destination, overtaking Las Vegas. Also, it has seen large resorts that rival Las Vegas in grandeur open. Some of these make perfect venues for weddings, and it’s likely they’ll be different from any wedding your guests have been to before!
The MGM brand is best known for its MGM Grand Las Vegas casino resort. However, with Macau overtaking Las Vegas as the world’s top gaming destination, it is not surprising that it also has a property in Macau, which is just as luxurious. As well as being a 5-star hotel and casino packed with many familiar casino games, it makes a great venue to host your wedding.
With room for up to 800 guests, the MGM Macau has some opulent function rooms for weddings of most sizes. It brings a mix of oriental tradition and modern styling to create a rather unique setting to hold your special day.
If you’re planning a more intimate event, the MGM Macau can cater to this too, with several different function rooms.
Macau Fisherman’s Wharf
The Macau Fisherman’s Wharf is a unique venue on the outer harbour of Macau and just a short walk from the ferry terminal. It is a European-themed venue, featuring architectural elements found across the continent.
You have several different settings to choose from. These include outdoor dining that looks over the water and the 6.3-metre high grand hall, with the opportunity to have your wedding photos taken in front of a replica Roman Amphitheatre.
Your guests will also have plenty of things to do before and after the wedding, with a large selection of shops and dining options.
Banyan Tree Macau
Encapsulating the unique blend of Asian and Portuguese culture that makes Macau unique, the Banyan Tree Macau is a high-rise urban resort located in the heart of the city. With a spectacular pool with a wave machine and beach area, you’ll feel like you’re at the beach.
