Bublé Wedding Crooner

Michael Steven Bublé is a Canadian crooner who became well-known internationally after the release of his album, "It's Time" in year 2005.

In March 2011, Michael Buble married young and gorgeous Argentine actress/ model Luisana Lopilato. They had their wedding ceremony at a mansion in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Luisana looked absolutely stunning in the wedding gown designed by Sylvie Burstin. Her tall, slim yet busty figure pulled off the Argentinian flavored dress perfectly. 

The couple also celebrated their nuptials in the groom's homeland with 500 of their closest family and friends. The wedding was held at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver, Canada. This time the bride wore a dress by Argentinian designer Jorge Ibañez.

He co-wrote the hit single "Haven't Met You Yet" for his then girlfriend Luisana and she also appeared in the song's music video.

List of Wedding Songs

He was invited to sing at the wedding of Canada's former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney's daughter Caroline in 2000. Michael sang the song "Mack the Knife" composed by Kurt Weill at the wedding. However his wife asked him not to sing on their big day. Some of my pick which can be your wedding tunes are listed below.
  • Everything - This is a fun song
  • You and I - This was the song of my wedding montage
  • For once in my life
  • Song For You - Very touching!

Song For You - Lyric
I've been so many places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs, I've made some bad rhyme
I've acted out my life in stages with ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you
I know your image of me is what I hope to be, I've treated you unkindly
But girl can't you see, there's no one more important to me
So darling can't you please see through me, 'cause we're alone now
And I'm singing my song for you, you taught me precious secrets
The truth with holding nothing, you came out in front
And I was hiding, oh, but now I'm so much better,
So if my words don't come together, listen to the melody
'Cause my love is in there hiding
I love you in a place where there is no space or time, I love you for my life
You are a friend of mine, and when my life is over
Remember, remember, remember when we were together
And we are alone now, and I was singing this song to you
We were alone, and I was singing, yeah singing
We were alone, and I was singing this song for you
Singing my song, I'm singing my song for you

A well-planned proposal is a nice little surprise that you could give your spouse-to-be. Get your team together to brainstorm creative ideas, something that is personal, romantic and memorable. What you need for a marriage proposal are a ring, flowers and a plan.
Besides the usual scenes, there are other ways to make your wedding videos more unique. For example, the bride gets to be Cinderella in the fairy tale wedding video, and the couple will be acting and speaking in a movie that defines their love story.
Videos are a good way to store your wedding memories for keepsake. If you have the time, consider making more than one videos to create more dimensions to the big celebration.

A sense of arrival will be created as guests draw focus to the spectacular chandelier comprised of thousands of high quality crystals cascades down 4.5 meters from the ceiling giving the illusion of floating jewels.

I just had my wedding dinner here. The food is tasty and service is awesome. The person in charge is helpful and thoughtful. Love this hotel!

Jul 2015
Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur. Price: RM2199++
Pro: High ceiling with no pillar, no minimum table requirement, spacious cocktail area, newly refurnished ball room.
Con: No romantic LED lights (only yellow warm lights), ballroom wall is a bit woody and too yellowish, small budget for floral arrangement (which means you need to top up more for nicer floral deco)

Jan 2012
The wedding dinner took place at InterContinental Hotel KL, and the food was prepared by the Chinese restaurant Toh Lee. I enjoyed majority of the dishes served but special praises must be sung for the Roasted Duck and Steamed Cod fish! It’s not very often that we get to eat duck on wedding dinners and this was roasted to a marvelous crispiness that didn’t remove the moisture from the flesh. On the other hand, the cod was served in a very generous portion, with silky smooth flesh that almost melted in my mouth. Thumbs-up!

Shangri-La KL 1000+ Seater Grand Ballroom

Nestled in the heart of the city, Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur is just a short distance from the city's busiest business, shopping and entertainment district. The hotel offers strategic views of the Petronas Twin Towers and Kuala Lumpur Tower.

Get ready to be mesmerized by the great ambiance of the newly renovated (in 2017) luxurious and pillarless Grand Ballroom with three crystal chandeliers adorning its ceiling and a huge space. The organizers are very helpful in ensuring a wonderful wedding function for the couple. Some of the staff may require more training maybe.

Mar 2017
WITH three crystal chandeliers adorning its ceiling, Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur’s new ballroom is set to become the place to host events in luxury and splendour. Spanning 1,509sq m, the state-of-the-art, pillarless ballroom was designed by Hong Kong-based LRF Designers Limited, with the facelift completed after four months of renovation.

Aug 2016
Most ideal for wedding dinners, good location, ballroom that fits 1000 pax, impeccable food! Servicing staff needs more training, mostly foreign waiting staff, didn't quite understand English very well. Overall, still the best wedding venue

Dec 2012
Best wedding I've ever attended was my friend's wedding at Shangri-La KL. Great food, great deco and everything. and the best part was this friend did reserved the best table for all her closest friends.

I've just attended a wedding at Shangrila where the venue is transformed into a mesmerizing, dreamy candlelight dinner for 60 tables. Instead of just round tables, the bride and groom put their friends in long tables, which was a great way to save space. Every table was adorned with fresh purple and pink roses. The wedding favor for all the guests was an unusual choice but fits the dreamy theme - incense.

I attended a wedding banquet at Shangrila and the experience was mediocre I must say. Food is ok, ambiance is abit shabby. But it wasn't up to my expectations.
May 2012
My husband and I had our wedding reception here on a sunday and the service was impeccable! We stayed in the honeymoon suite for 4 nights and it was absolutely delightful.
we can only say we had the best service and the organisers were very helpful and gave us an upgrade for the projector size due to the fact that we were staying there for the weekend. the food served was EXCEPTIONAL and they did not scrimp on the ingredients when we made a comment about not scrimping on the trimmings during the food tasting/rehearsal dinner. Definitely will recommend it for any function!

Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel

There is a newer newer blog post here.

Sheraton Imperial KL's extravagant Chinese wedding packages include a nine-course banquet and accompanied by a host of dazzling details to enhance your event, such as an eight-tiered ceremonial dummy wedding cake and individual gift cakes for every guest, free corkage for hard liquor and wine, a complimentary flow of mocktails during the pre-dinner reception, a complimentary overnight stay in the hotel's Bridal Suite inclusive of breakfast for two, a fruit basket and champagne, and food-tasting for 10 people. The wedding team will also adorn the banquet room with thoughtfully hand-selected decorations, including a floral bouquet for each table and a beautiful centerpiece for the bridal table, red carpet, ice carving, white chair covers with tassels, and a chiffon wedding backdrop with fairy lights.

It is an Old hotel, the ballroom has a sense of old charm and class. Customer loves the service, the hotel wedding staff delivered what they promised, and they took initiative and very attentive. Service is superb at Sheraton during the wedding reception. Everything was served into individual plates by the waiters and so, the guests were spoilt for the night. The food is good but not perfect, some dishes from the Chinese Menu lack flavor. The menu can be arranged to be slightly out-of-the-box and have a combination of Chinese, Western and Local flavors. 

Villa Danieli is housed on the 5th floor of the Sheraton Imperial Hotel. The restaurant is a fine dining Italian restaurant which can also cater for events and small cozy weddings. This place is as Italian as it gets! The seating arrangements are mostly a mixture of round and square tables but they mentioned that it could possibly be replaced with banquet tables for events. The choice for menu is either buffet or a pre-set menu and they would need at least a week in advance for reservations. To book up the whole restaurant, a minimum charge of RM20,000++ would need to be spent, however, they are quite flexible and open for discussion. There is a small space for a band if you would like to bring one over and they can help to setup a a platform stage for them. Weddings can be held there until 10.30pm where the restaurant will close. Parking is fixed at RM8 for functions at the restaurant. Villa Danieli serves excellent Italian wedding cuisine. (http://venuemenu.blogspot.com/2013/04/villa-danieli-sheraton-imperial-kuala.html)

My wedding reception was held at the Nusantara ballroom, Ellie has been a great help to get everything on track throughout the preparation and actual day. She is a very attentive and thoughtful person.
Our bridal suite was lovely decorated, with an amazing KL view. Reception dinner was good. Everything seems perfect till I gotten 2 upset feedbacks.
First, one of my guest had Red Wine spilled on his shirt by a waiter who was pouring wine for him. No apologies was said, absolutely nothing. The waiter just walked off away. My guest was totally disappointed on this and he did not expect a 5 star hotel to treat guests that way.
Second, my dad was using the complimentary valet parking given to us. Upon getting his car, the valet was asking for the valet fees which my dad said it was supposed to be complimentary. The guy was very impolite persistently asking for it and my dad asked him to check his records.The guy gotten rude and unwillingly went to check only to realised that indeed our car plate details was given there. Once again, no apologies were given. My dad was infuriated with that kind of service, spoiling his day!
I thought that Sheraton Imperial would have been the best choice I would have made for my wedding, only to get this feedbacks back. I'm truly upset on this matters as it has affect my guest and my family.

We had our beautiful wedding in Sheraton.
Everything was perfect!!We love the service, they delivered what they promised, and they took initiative and very attentive to our needs. The rooms are very nice and comfortable, ballroom is perfect, and foods were really good, our family and friends were impressed.
Thank You Sheraton for creating the perfect day

for this wedding, it was slightly out-of-the-box.  The menu was quite unique as it has a combination of Chinese, Western and Local flavours. I must comment how superb the service was at Sheraton.  Everything was served into individual plates by the waiters and so, we are pretty much spoilt for the night.  The good thing is, it gave us quality time to mingle with our friends and catch up with the good old times (as well as taking loads of pictures).
Four Hot Precious Combinations.
Stir Fried Fresh Top Shell with Capsicums:  the flavour was quite mild but the top shell was fantastically thick and fresh.
Deep Fried Almond Coated Ball:  Tasted average.
Steamed Prawn Dumpling with Supreme Sauce:  Flavourful and juicy, with the sweetness of the prawn meat but would have preferred that the prawn tail to be removed.
Vietnamese Yam Roll:  This was my favourite of the four!  It's like a palate cleanser to neutralise the heavy, complicated flavours of the other food.
I must say, this is a very good bowl of pumpkin soup.
Oven Roasted Pei Pa Chicken - the meat has quite a mushy not-so-fresh texture. A big no no.
Steamed Omega Barramundi with Japanese Soy Sauce - delicious
Braised Japanese Mushroom with Vegetable - not enough flavors
Nasi Minyak with Diced Chicken and Anchovies - disappointing
Sep 2012
Totally agreed with your posting here! I had my wedding dinner in June at this cosy yet gorgeous villa. Chef alessandro is very attentive to our request from appetizer, salad, mains to desserts. Even vegetarian dishes without eggs can be done nicely. Same credits goes to the pastry chef :) You can never go wrong with this restaurant.
