carlton hotel can cater 15 tables, the function room is near the swimming pool, level 5. Go and take a look. I'll post photos if I am free.took a few last visit. but heard that the food really cannot make it so we dropped the idea of having our banquet there.
apple: Still can't decide...cos haven't c QX..will only drop by tis Sat to take a look...if possible of cos I wish to have it in a hotel rather than a restaurant...gotta weigh the pros n cons 1st b4 deciding...money is a big big issue...haiz...
dOlPhInE: Thks! Having the montage playing non-stop is a gd idea...I wants something creative but yet nt to absurd n costly becos I only have 10 tables...
apple, QXFP is better than I've imagined...fh n I r quite pleased wif wat we saw but we've yet to talk to the person in charge yet though...they have a small function room which can hold up to 20 tables...there's no minimum no. of tables to adhere to which is gd cos I may jus have 120pax or so...
lotus999, Oriental Hotel will be out of our budget n moreover ours is a wkday so a lunch event is out for us...thanks!
pink_dolphin99, my AD will be on the 10th Dec 07...guess I'll oso jus have a photo montage...guess I wun be having any videographer so as to cut cost...shld be ok rite?
Hi Where have u been? when did u view the small ballroom? my understanding is that you need to have min 10 tables then can use the small ballroom, if not they may ask you to use the VIP rooms. Not sure abt the menu as well cos they are a few others that i have enquired b4 that if u have less then their min tables they will not give u the wedding menu.
You can PM me if u need to ask more abt it.
You mean you have not spoke to the person in charge, was she there when you visit the place?
not sure if you are still looking for banquet location.
May i suggest you can try look into Holiday inn Atrium. Their package is real attractive and ballroom for min table is 15 avaliable for dinner at nett rate $568 and $668. If interested can email to me, i can forward the package and contact to you.
apple, I've been lazy checking SB forum for the past few wks...somehow jus lost the 'kick' in wedding preparation...hehe...maybe it's still early tats y...I shld have a minimum of 10 tables...I've oso got the menu fr 1 of the staff there...the person in charge was nt ard when I visited therefore I din have a chance to tok to her...
Wong YY, I'm still 'browsing' ard for wedding banquet and have already shortlisted some...I've actually been to Holiday Inn Park View so I guess the price shld be about the same rite? I've got the quotation for HIPV....thanks!
if i am not wrong , carlton is hvg a show today. it seems like they are giving away a free table upon confirmation, worthwhile to take a look. but their px has increased a fair bit. my fh doesn't like the pillars, so we are giving it a miss.
for me, i dun like carlton becoz there is pillar in the ballroom and function room.. unless u can arrange ur tables in such a way that your guests will not be blocked.. One more thing to note, in the function room, they dun hv a projector screen fixed onto the stage.. meaning to say, when u need to show ur montage, the technician will walk into the function room and fix for u.. and after the montage is over, they will come in again and take out the projector screen..
Hi all...nt sure if u all still check tis thread...I've finally decided on M Hotel...
Ruled out Carlton cos I'm 'angry' wif the ridiculous price incease of $130 per table for 2007 pricing...=p
Ruled out QXFP cos no hotel stay provided so might be troublesome...
Nw I can't make up my mind if I shld have a VG cos without a VG I wun have anything to 'show' during dinner...a photo montage is kind of difficult cos fh dun have much family pics n etc when he was young...cartoon montage's cost almost the same price as hiring a VG so it's a nono...
Shld I jus do away with showing anything n jus march in, cut cake n then makan? I'm fine wif it as long as it's the guests wun find something 'missing'...aiyo the more I read SB forum the more headache I have cos I can't seem to make up my mind...=p
same here im also having 10- 12 tables, and having a headache of where to hold it.
i dont meet the requirement of the min tables for most hoetls, and even though i know there are 3 hotels who can cater to 10-12 tables, there are not quite suitable, cost per table comes up to around $120 to $150. really expensive leh. think more tables u have, the cost per table is lesser!
any restaurants to recommend with pricing like $700 nett, and good food, and have a private room for my 10-12 tables?
i know club chinos dont allow. jade @ fullerton is not popular for weddings i heard.
I had mine at RELC Hotel's Tang Court Restaurant last month. The minimum is 10 tables and they allow you to book the entire restaurant with a top-up option. The food, service, convenience and value is exceptional - had a wonderful wedding there, thanks to the manager, Mr Harry Goh & wonderful staff. The package they offered has the best value and did not blow a hole in the budget...which came in handy for our honeymoon to Maldives.
Oh. thanks because I'm not doing a video montage during lunch wedding, not even the march-in too. The lunch is approx 2 hours, but i'll be changing my gowns so i wonder will the guests be bored when i'm away and thought a video powerpoint will keep them entertained, but sharing my pics with everyone is not my cup of tea. Anyway, just wondering what else does other people do?
Mine is also only 10-12 tables and I'm not doing the cake cutting, yum seng etc as I find these activities rather cheesy and very much like a circus act. I am having a cake just for display and then midway the hotel staff will cut it for the guests to eat.
I agreed with Kevin. I too had mine wedding at RELC Hotel's Tang Court Restaurant. That was in March'09. It was excellent, Good food, Good services- had a wonderful wedding there. Really very happy. Thanks to the manager, Mr Harry Goh & assistant manager Peishi and their wonderful staffs. The package they offered did not blow a hole in the budget...Idea for small size to wedding up till 30+ tables. Highly recommended! They are customer pro restaurant. Not like some restaurant, if your table numbers are little they will still open partial of their section to other customer. Tang court won't. Your Big day, Your area. (^,^)
A wedding banquet is really just a celebration, and being the wedding couple, you are the hosts. You can plan your banquet program anyway you want.
I've filmed couples who did the standard wedding banquet protocol of 2 march ins, cut cake, video highlights, yam seng, etc and yet their presence wasn't felt. And I also have couples who had only 1 march in, no video, no cake, etc, but delivered v good speeches that touched everyone, and mingled with all their friends and relatives very well. It was truly a celebrations and was really memorable for everyone.
So please don't be restricted by conventional practices. Treat your banquet as a party, be sincere to every guest and the results will be fantastic.
