    Hi Babe, depends on your package. While most packages includes AD PG, it usually does not include VG.

    @Jacqlwl wedding bands from lee hwa. for me, I like eternity bands. all places is the same (there's expensive kind like destine/celestial 3x the price of mine) but reason I took lee hwa is becos they carry platinum bands, which HTB prefers. So... hahaha

    Haha thank u babes :) going ala carte on gowns and suits but we already know the tailor & BS we're going so that's done. Quotes collected for AD PG & VG and will prolly make decision end of year :)

    Hey babe, my htb frequents a tailor in Orchard Hotel, & he is very good, he did my htb's bestfriend suit for his wedding last year and it really fits very well. But he doesnt come cheap, about 600/suit. A lot of my friends did their suits in Bangkok at a very good rate too...

    I guess it's kinda up to u and ur budget too. If u have someone to take ur photos for the day then I think it should b ok not to engage, else I think most will want to have something to remember the day by?

    I'm still hoping I can manage to find one within my budget. :(

    Hi ladies, I'm a jan 2015 bride and am doing everything ala carte. Have gotten my gowns for actual day and pre wedding however am pretty annoyed with the hotel, so thinking of changing one... :-(

    mcpig Member

    Oh dear it will be quite tedious to change now, not to say not many venues will be available. Care to share yr experience? Maybe someone here will be able to help ;)

    You may wanna take a look at blue button. It is a sister brand of the wedding paparazzi. You can check out their videos: here: http://vimeo.com/bluebuttonfilms/videos

    The other day when I went to meet up with the coordinator, she mentioned that they will be launching PG too =)

    We had a really good sales guy when we first went. Subsequently, the replacement was bad, so was the sales director. What irks me is that they keep dating there's pricing error, even at the stage of signing the contract...
     
  26. G&Z

    G&Z Member

    I almost booked there but the lady was a pain in the ass.. She doesn't seem interested to get us as clients so I give up and went with raffles.. Took them a long time to get back to me on the pricing for 2015..

    we are keen in signing up with Grand Copthorne Waterfront. However, the sales exec we have (E****C) is really awful in terms of his service and integrity. Shant go into details. If you happen to sign up with this hotel, can you please share with me the contacts of the rep you dealt with? My email is han.fusheng@gmail.com. Thanks a million! If possible, also share your package as well? :)

    G&Z, which lady served you at Capella? I was transferred from Steven to Nina, then to Priscilla (the director) then to Shierly (the AM). All are bloody hopeless... I love the venue but am struggling to put up with the crap from this team...

    Rest of the brides, in case you folks are interested, quotes for gown rental which I've found before deciding on purchasing once Designer Bridal Room in KL:
    - Blessed Brides 1500, range is more european romantic
    - Amanda Lee 1800-2200, range is extensively asian neo-classical, romantic, you name it. The folks there are designers themselves and are extremely helpful
    - Gallerie Bridal from 200 onwards, gown designs are nice however gown might not be full piece material in front so does not look as sleek

    Pre-wedding decided at Colmar Tropicale mainly due to the cooler weather and shorter transport time compared to Aust, Europe etc. Photographer is Benson Yin at extremely good rates.

    Actual video by Ichiro Films, tacky and wacky team of folks who are always ready to tell your story via films. :)

    Any info you might need, just PM me or msg here.

    Pek chek... haizz.. now im thinking of doing everything myself (if they allow tung lok catering) or change hotel..
     
  33. mcpig

    mcpig Member

    Hi babe, hotels won't allow outside catering so I suggest you start looking for alternatives in case it cannot be resolved. But if you have signed the contract pls do check what you are liable for if you cancel your banquet...
     
  34. diy_wedding_invites

    diy_wedding_invites New Member

    nope, good thing is contract is not yet signed as they cant decide what price to charge us... everytime we ask about smt, theres always a pricing error..
     
  35. G&Z

    G&Z Member

    so you have not sign contract? why would there be an error on the pricing? it does not make sense...

    if you have not make any deposit and sign any contract, consider changing venue? or alternative is to bring to their higher management....

    That's the pain of it all. They give me one price during discussion then another price in the contract. We have decided to give them up. Looking for 4 seasons, Orchard Parade where the both venue and food is good. Fingers-crossed everything turns out well and in time!!! :)
