Everyday on the way to work n after work surf Internet for information. So tired..
My FB have not been added to the group.. I have sent my request..
hi everyone this is my first post. im getting married next year, 10-11-12.
anyone has the same date as well?
we are going to diy our wedding. anyone here diy-ing as well?
oh well, dunno where to start... any tips?
we have started to search for wedding banquet venues.
went to orchard hotel but the shape is odd and low ceiling.
went to marina mandarin but the 1st floor many ballrooms, im afraid guests will be confused and the 5th floor is very dark.
went to intercon, is super nice! but $1500 per table. do you think is worth it?
still pending now...
honeypork, my wedding banquet is at intercon too..i tink the ballroom is gorgeous lor..tats the main reason y we took it...but mine is a lunch..i tink most impt is u like the ballroom lor..even for lunch, we are prepared to lose 5k..
u can also consider amara santuary, super nice too! they were actually my first choice bcos the feeling is so diff from the rest of the hotels..but have to be prepared their perks are very little..
@xrevlis : oh it's 2 diff hotel? ok, i'll go check out orchard hotel.. haa.. thanks
@houseoflove : you got intercon? but it's $1500, as we need dinner banquet.. i think nowadays ppl still bao $80 to $100 for ang bao, we have alot malaysia relatives and our relatives are all average and some is low income.. so we will definitely lose alot more... still considering... but in the meantime i will check out orchard hotel.. have considered amara sanctuary but is at sentosa. my htb's dad face got a shock when he just tell him we are looking at amara sanctuary at sentosa.. he said no one will go, they will only pass him ang baos, or most will be very late then reach. actually that is our first choice.. but dah.. forget it, i dun want anyone to get upset over this...
orchard hotel abt 900plus for weekdays and 1k plus for weekend which is within my budget. i looking hotels ard 1k cos half of the ppl invited are those i duno so i rather spend more $$ on my bridal package & honeymoon hee. so long as i get a high ballroom without pillar and big stage that my main critierias cos i wan plan some stage programme
yar, that's my budget as well for hotel. am going down to crowne plaza to check out on monday, already book appt.. me most important is my wedding gown, video and photo.
This 3 is the most important and meaningful.
i've also met afew companies, on my list now is Unique colours. their package quite comprehensive, includes video, photo, instant prints, childhood montage, and prewedding video. all in 1 package.
my htb was his friend's brother at a wedding with unique colours as the video and photo, he came back full of praises and said he want to join unique to work lol.. my hubby passion is photography, he got all the camera stuffs, accessories stuffs.. full set, buay tahan.. lol
anyway my htb showed me all their videos and we went down to meet adrian from unique as well last friday, everything quite good esp their videos are really good , no complains and is really unique, wonder if this is why they are call unique colours. their videos are unique and photos are vibrant, so is call unique colours.. haaa.. guess i too nothing to do now... lol
Crown plaza one of my choice also but their normal pkg dun have sharkfins n my htb love sharkfins hee so give it a miss. Can upgrade to their premium pkg but that will exceed our budget. Find their ballrm quite special.
Unique colors realli not bad, i saw their pics also
hi, welcome.. same date as me (Hilton)and magdal (should be grand park city hall)..
My budget also somewhere there.. orchard & marina mandarin (mm) r my shortlist choice and both pillarless.. mm is my 1st, but pricing is steeper... So Hilton ultimately win over mm. BTW, how many tables r u having? cos orchard hotel will have shared reception area.. cos ballroom 1+2 and ballroom 3 share r actually one big ballroom..
@ xrevlis , yar crowne ballroom quite nice, looking at concorde hotel also, like their red carpet.. heee.
yar, already 99% confirm Unique colours, just waiting to confirm which hotel tomorrow as i be seeing crowne and concorde tmr. then i will call Unique tmr as well, to confirm and inform them my hotel at the same time. hehe.. yar, their video and pics are really good, i also like their instant prints which is laminated and unlimited throughout the whole dinner banquet with booth and props and backdrop... sounds cool right..
@ evelyn , we have the same date?! cool! haa.. i be having around 25 to 30 tables... i prefer not to share reception, in that case, i think i better cross orchard hotel out first, shall still go to crowne and concorde to check out first..
hi yyiling and cluelessbtb, what kind of live band ur looking for? I've got contacts for a live band, and they've got 1 vocalist, 1 acoustic guitarist, 1 electric guitarist, 1 keyboardist, 1 bassist and 1 drummer. They can play a variety of songs, but since the vocalist is a malay, i'm not sure if they can pick up songs in mandarin too.
they're young but they've played in YOG opening ceremony and some competitions before.. so if you don't mind, i can pass you their contact and maybe they can arrange some sample pieces for u to hear before you decide..? they're playing 3 songs for my wedding as well..
charges wise i'm not too sure (they're playing at my wedding for free cos the bassist is my bro ), but i think they won't hit $800 for 2 songs..
I'm not sure, you can contact them and ask? But they've never played in weddings before (mine's the first), so i'd recommend u to choose a few songs u want and hear it from them before deciding.. i'll pm u!
