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

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.
