Hotels get ‘kiss of life’ as couples expand wedding guest lists, Singapore News & Top Stories

Posted on by iwano@_84

As soon as the Government announced that capacity limits at weddings would be doubled to 100 from yesterday, bride-to-be Sheryl See whipped out her alternative guest list and started making telephone calls.

The 31-year-old said she was well-prepped for any sudden changes in plans, given the uncertainties of the Covid-19 pandemic. She had even created four guest lists – for up to 20, 50, 80 and 100 people – to accommodate different scenarios for her wedding on Oct 18.

“We had always hoped that government regulations would change in time for us to invite more people, and it really worked out. We knew exactly whom we wanted at our special day, so it was just a matter of informing them as soon as it was possible to include all of them,” said the bride-to-be, whose guest list will now have almost 100 names.

Speaking of the project, the band’s David Gedge said: “Where do ideas like this come from? Well, I can tell you that this one was born during a soundcheck in New Zealand, in 2013, when the band were playing around with the main melody of the classic Bond theme ‘You Only Live Twice’.

“And then came another idea. Each of the artists on this proposed compilation would be
required to have a physical connection to Cinerama or The Wedding Present. I liked the unifying feel of that. I
