Sunway Putra Place is an integrated three-in-one mixed use asset which encompasses a retail mall (Sunway Putra Mall), a hotel (Sunway Putra Hotel) and an office tower (Sunway Putra Tower). In 2014, Sunway REIT invested about RM1 billion to refurbish Sunway Putra Place which it acquired in 2011.

For a hotel wedding, this set of dishes is the best that I have ever had. The food is fresh and tasty, with generous portion of serving. That's why I chose Sunway Putra Hotel out of 20 enquiries that I made to other hotels and restaurants in Klang Valley.

How to Plan For Your Wedding Live Band

Everyone would love to find The best wedding live band in Malaysia for their wedding, but in my opinion there is no such a thing as the best wedding live band, there is however the most suitable one. Together with feedback and comments from different readers' as well as my own experience, here's something I would like to share to inspire your wedding live band hunting/ planning journey.

1. Research and Plan your Live Band as Early as Possible
Live Band is an industry of talents and vocalists are unique. It is absolutely possible to find and meet a very good singer or musician who fits your exact requirements, but she or he may not be available on your wedding day. As I have been told, good vocalists are booked way in advance (a year before) especially on hot and auspicious dates. Therefore the sooner you seal the deal, the better choices you will get and usually at more attractive rates.

2. Budget
There are full or part time, professional, semi-pro, freelance singers and musicians. Truth be told, hiring professional and good musicians is definitely not going to be cheap. They can only play in one location at a time and reputable, talented, experienced ones are grabbed fast. Naturally, the popular ones demand a higher fee. You get what you pay for. To get good quality performance, I would recommend that you choose a more professional band from a reliable company. Get ready for an above average price tag.

3. Sound System
This is generally ignored during planning. One cannot assume that the venue's (restaurant or hotel) sound system is good enough for a live music performance. As a matter of fact, many restaurants do not provide the audio system for live bands. Even if there is, the system would not be of live band quality and there is no sound engineer provided. A live audio engineer is responsible for blending and balancing multiple sounds from musical instruments, voices or recording. The sounds are equalized, in harmony without anyone over-powering the other. It is recommended that you hire a reputable live band as they usually provide a good sound system and sound engineer to control the audio quality the audience hears.

4. Let the Professional Advise You
It is very normal to have your own preferences in terms of song genre or the kind of musical instruments to be played on the wedding day. Unfortunately your preference may not match your guests' taste. Hence a professional live band is there to assess the crowd's musical inclination by observing the audience age group, their responses to the performance and so on then react accordingly. They will adjust their repertoire list to achieve the best result in entertaining the wedding guests. For example Jazz music is really relaxing and unique but not everyone appreciates it, oldies definitely please the older generation but may not go so well with millennials. The experts know the best combination of instruments and song choices, taking your preference into consideration of course.

Vistana Hotel KL Titiwangsa

Vistana by YTL hotels is a highly recommended venue option. The commendable wedding package comes with free decoration, PA system, ice sculptures, corkage waiver, free flow of Chinese tea and soft drink and pre-dinner poolside cocktail hour arrangement. Additional payment is required for renting the projector. The biggest ballroom (Manjung) has two pillars which raise some concerns.

The hosts have complimented PIC Wai Wai and her team. Vistana's banqueting team provides excellent service in making sure that their customers are fully satisfied with the wedding coordination. Debbie Leow is very helpful, she constantly follows up to ensure everything is ready. Awesome dedication. Brides commented they were happy with the food, service and ambiance. There is a pool and function hall which you can have the ceremony or pre-dinner drinks session before the wedding reception. Arrangements can be made with the hotel to personalize the wedding reception according to your request, for example having a lamb carving station, or the first 3 dishes served on the table and the rest buffet.

We just had our wedding luncheon and matrimony at Vistana. It was a lovely experience. Surprisingly the food was very good. We even had a whole lamb carving station which was what we had always wanted and it was really tasty! Our friends and family had a good time :)) and you know how it is with long waits before the food can be served? The hotel did a new thing where we had the first 3 dishes served on the table and the rest was buffet. They customised the menu just to suit our needs plus it's pork free. I personally love the tokens for our wedding. Instead of the usual choc or cake, we chose the adorable bride and groom keychain. Even the guys took it back! This was the ideal place for our small gathering do - just 14 tables. Hats off and heartfelt thanks especially to the manager who helped us in every detail - ms Debbie Leow and the dedicated chefs who had done a wonderful job. Thank you also to all the attentive and friendly staff who made our special day so memorable :))

I had my wedding here at Vistana KL. It was awesome. The food was great and the best part is that there is a pool and function hall which you can have the ceremony before the wedding at the dining area. We booked 7 rooms in total, function room and the dining hall that night. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the food was fantastic.
Normally people do not expect much on hotel food when it comes to wedding however Vistana manage to prove them wrong. I huge kudos to the kitchen staff and the chefs whom are involved in the food and menu.
What made it great was the event manager who assisted me and my wife. For those who are planning to hold a wedding function, you got to look for Debbie Leow as she is the one of the most helpful person ever. Not only that, she constantly follow up with me to ensure that all things are all prepared for the wedding. Awesome dedication!
Overall the experience in Vistana was great and I would highly recommend those who are planning to have a small wedding (below 26 tables) to have it there.
