We got married on one of the back lawns at the Raffles, having independently identified and hired a solemniser (who was fantastic). The rings/signing etc was under an open-sided pavilion type structure, and the guests were seated right in front on rows of chairs. If it rained there was the contingency option of immediately switching to one of their venue spaces upstairs at the rear of the hotel.
Examples of the precise venue [these are from Google, not our ceremony]->

I'd expect the Hotel website to have other pix too. The hotel wedding co-ordinator was great too; in fact IIRC they have a team of them. It went as seamlessly as it could have, near military precision
We went with a pretty baseline deal and it was reasonable. We could have added extras (guests staying there, us staying there, the event being catered there etc, the $ can be the limit is seems). But our arrangement added a touch of wow, for both us and our guests, and wasn't that expensive.
Then for the main reception we had that in the reception room at our condo
(nil cost). We had a caterer provide the food, which allowed us to pick a range of dishes pitched at both spice-lovers and guests with less exotic palates. That was also pretty inexpensive. Some of the locals also brought along food they had prep'd too.
We had a couple of 'break-out' events too. The trad-local visit by the core families to my in-laws home for a meal. A dinner and night on the town for me+wife and our own friends, and so on.
One key to making it simple was delegating responsibility amongst people we trusted. I dealt with the Raffles, and condo re: the hall. My wife the solemniser. My SIL the food. My BIL and Best Man were in charge of dealing with questions from and co-ordination of local and visiting guests respectively. So a tip would be to do the same if you can: As the day nears things REALLY snowball fast, and delegating out responsibility kept things pretty sane IME.
Oh and congratulations and best of luck to you both!
