I've a bridal package to let go. The reason was me & my hubby decided to go to Taiwan for pre-wedding photoshoot. So there is no point for us to have/keep another bridal package.

The package worth $3388; deposit paid $1500 and we're letting go at $2988 (still negotiable). We're willing to let go at reasonable & negotiable price.

Our package contains 1 wedding gown (MTM), 15R album with 30pages/poses indoor+outdoor (include 6pcs FOC metalic) magazine-style hot-press, ...

for more details, pls email [email protected],[email protected]

Hi peeps,

My SO n I are initially looking for 2010 year end weekend dates, but after looking at the forums, I think we got no hope for 2010 le. Currently looking at 2011, but no specific month.

Looking at Orchard Parade Hotel but worried we do not have enuff tables for the Antica Ballroom.

Another option is holiday inn park view Orchid room. Does anyone have any pics to share for the Orchid Ballroom in Holiday inn park view?

What to do next hur? Look for BS? Seriously, I have no idea what to look for in good BS and how to negiotiate..

Hi Hamlet,

Yes, I made an appointment with Secret Heaven for this sunday 4 Oct to take a look at their work and the gowns. I planning to go for the shoot in April next year. I think is good to have another gown for the shoot instead of using my Actual wedding day gown. Cause I afraid that I might dirty it.

So, you also going to Australia for shoot? recently, checking out the air ticket, price reduced. Should be affordable to plan our PS there and also pre-honeymoon. Hee. heee....

A bit indecisive in term of location, do you have any suggestion?

Hi Fiona, you mean you've booked your AD already?
I'm looking at the end of 2011 and when I checked last month, the hotels mentioned that booking will not be opened till 2010 first quarter.

Welcome all =)

Siy - thanks for the info, know you are super busy now and yet still trying to update the stuff for us. Hang in there =)

purplebottle - Some hotels are opened for bookings, e.g. till Mar 2011, and some are not. It really depends on where you are looking at. =)
 

purplebottle

New Member
pinkglove - Oh, I thought the hotels are opened for booking for the whole year of 2011 =) Thanks anyway!

I read that you're shortlisting TWP and Silhouette for your BS? I'm looking at these two as well!

I haven gone into gown shopping yet.. but i intend to drop by twp, sil and allux and many more.. hehe.. dunno if i've the stamina to go so many or not. So you starting ur gown searching alredy?
 

purplebottle

New Member
I went to TWP, Silhouette and My Bridal Room to check out the packages they have and got to try on a few dresses =) I think I'll start my gown search next June since my AD is end of 2011.

The only thing I'll confirm by this year will be my ring. I don't know if I'm being kiasu by checking out the BS/Hotels so early actually. Hehe!
 

pinkglove

New Member
Oh, how's My Bridal Room?
It's always better to prepare early than late! Oh, u mean choosing ur proposal ring? I prefer surprises but I hope I'll get my ring soon too!

pinkglove: The girl who attended to me at MBR was very nice, not pushy at all. She didn't let me try on any dresses though (bc it was a Sat) and she only showed me fewer than 10 gowns hanging on the rack. However, she did mention that they can MTM anything as long as I show the designer what I want. MTM package price was about 4k+.

Yeah, the proposal ring. I told bf that I don't want any surprises so I'm going along to choose it. Hope you'll get yours soon too =)

Fiona: Maybe it's because yours is early 2011 but mine is end 2011 =)

Hi All,

Finally....i got to spare some time in here
happy.gif

Been to the Sherton Towers Wedding Ritz show today. However, they are not opened for the 2011. The lady mentioned they may start Dec'09 for 2011 bookings. Price tend to be estimate of additional $60 per table.

Anyway, although the show's MC was Class 95 FD, but then seems like the 14 lucky draw was very cheapo eg. FOC FootSpa, F&B Voucher, Free Geomancy service. Then the invitation card stated "Stand a chance to win Best Dressed Couple" but they just got away with this prize at all. Anyway, their perks on wedding show not too attractive at all. Payment by UOB - F.O.C. 2nd night stay, 6 bottles wine, Chox Tart for all guests, 2nd barrel beer.

2010 Package (1/1/10 - 31/12/10)*per table:12pax
Mon - Thur: $988++
Fri,Sun,PH: $1148++
Sat & Eve of PH: $1188++
Wkdays - min. 25 table; Wkend - 30 table
++ 10% GST & service charge apply

The BS fashion by SIL was quite ok. Package offered was $3,880 (valid till 30 Oct'09):-

Bride: OTR WG & EG (rental)
Groom: MTM suit (keep) jacky & pants

1x Trial Make-up, 1x AD
1x flower bouquet for AD
6x corsages
1x bridal car deco.
8x ribbon

Hey Muji! Really?? So coincident! It's our most auspicious date chosen by Master Tong. =)

I've booked my venue at Grand Park City Hall. How about you? How's preparation so far?
 

pinkglove

New Member
hi Siy, thanks for the info =)

Sheraton's lucky draw prizes really doesn't seem as attractive.. I manage to get a free photo montage service in the lucky draw when i went for park royal show couple of weeks back which I felt is quite useful.

New Member
Oh Joaine, mine is picked by Master Tong too! We have not sourced for the hotel yet. Shortlisted a few but we are still deciding on whether to have lunch or dinner. Can you share with me the Park Hotel package?

I am holding my ROM this Dec so preparations are already done, just counting down now..As for our AD, photography n MUA are done, nothing for the rest yet! Oh, I'm going ala-carte, so everything has to be seen to myself.. Exciting but tiring..

Yeah!! Then we can support each other along the way to our Big Day!

Wow!! That's fast. I might go ala carte for my AD also but i've not done anything yet. haha!

I tried to PM you but your PM is off. BTW, do you mean Park Hotel at Clark Quay? if so, they doesn't hold wedding banquet. =)
 

muji

New Member
Ha, coz we are having the same photographer and MUA for both ROM and AD..I am going to the Mandarin Oriental wedding showcase, hope they are open for 2011..

I shall go try to figure out how to turn my PM on..
