If you dream of a destination wedding in Shanghai, The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong offers four locations. Say “I do” in event rooms like the Beige, which seats 120 in round banquet tables, or accommodates 208 for a reception; Amber, which also fits 120, or 240 for a reception; and Cream, which accommodates 80 for dinner, or 180 for a reception. For a lavish affair, you might want to opt for the Grand Ballroom, which can host up to 1,200 guests for a reception or 800 for a sit-down meal. In addition to its event spaces, get help with the planning. You will get your own on-location wedding expert and wedding butler to handle the details of your big day. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel offers a thorough and helpful list of FAQs on its website (under the “Wedding Advisor” link) to help you figure out the logistics of an overseas wedding, like the Chinese government’s requirements for a legal wedding ceremony.
