For a list of other wedding venue options, pop in here.
After having done my research, I realize there are ample of wedding banquet options. One of them is a convention centre. The Sime Darby Convention Centre (SDCC) located at Bukit Kiara, KL offers hotel standard service, food (halal) and ambiance with a better price. No fuss with parking at all as the space is huge and it's totally free of charge. You have a wide, pillar-less grand ballroom.
The Grand Ballroom comprises a column-free area of 19,000 square feet to accommodate 2,600 guests. If necessary, the Ballroom may be divided into three smaller function rooms that can accommodate up 800 guests each.

Fahril & Zara’s Wedding
my sister got married here recently and we found the staff here to be very friendly and professional. She had her Akad Nikah upstairs and while everyone was waiting, we realised there was nothing to drink! So I informed one of the waiters who quickly helped bring up bottles and bottles of mineral water for all the guests. Later for the sit down lunch, the wait staff were also efficient and courteous.
Want to have an Indian wedding dinner,then this is the place.Their indian food menu is awesome.
We had a Wedding reception at Ballroom 2 at Sime Darby Convention Center at Bukit Kiara on 20th.Dec,2013 and am so pleased to say that the services rendered during the reception was excellent and the settings and arrangement made everything look so grand.Our sincere thanks to the Management and staffs who did a great job to make this occasion a memorable one. Thank you once again.
Attended a wedding dinner at Sime Darby Convention Center last weekend. My first impression: this place has ample parking. The moment i set foot into the grand ballroom, my first thought was that the design is stunning with a touch of oriental - i really like the yellow and orange umbrella on the ceiling. The ballroom is spacious with no pillars. So, all the guests can have a good look of the couple march-in and other event on the stage. The environment and ambiance are definitely of hotel standard. Further, this place serves halal Chinese food, so it's a great option for couples who intend to invite Muslim guests.
Well, the only down side of this place was the quality of the waiters. From what i observed, some of them acted prompt and efficient. They took the initiative to ask the guests whether they need a refill of wine. But some of them just stood there, ignoring the empty tea cups that are 'dying' to be refilled. One waiter accidentally drop the wine glass and the lady's blouse was soaked in wine. Instead of grabbing a napkin and apologized, he just stood there and looked stun. It was the supervisor who saves the day. When the supervisor wasn't looking, he actually turned and made stupid faces to another waiter. He did not look sorry at all.
Well, my final verdict, for brides-to-be who want to be away from the crazy kl traffic, this is definitely the place.
Attended wedding dinner at Sime Darby Convention Centre. Good ambiance and waiters divide foods for everyone. This is good as it will prevent food wastage.
Visited Sime Darby Convention center last week, very nice pillar less hall.
Everything same as hotel. Food is good. Package is good. They even have a roof garden and 2 suites up there which is included in the package. The only deciding factor is the 'convention center' vs 'hotel'.
