My name is Jarls Lee from Singapore and I am an undergraduate at a Hospitality Management school in Switzerland. For my undergraduate dissertation, I am looking at the negotiation behaviour of prospective wedding couples looking to hold their wedding banquet at 5-star hotels in Singapore.
Your response is kindly appreciated and will aid in the completion of my paper.
This survey will take up 15-20 minutes of your time.
For ambience, i think place is nice - not your typical hotel but more resort feel. Food wise they are quite creative coz was at wedding show. Apparently their carpark is FOC - not sure till when thou. Plus they have shuttle bus services every 20min or so... Fren held a wedding there last year and had solemisation at their glass pavilion - cute. My take is that there are more options there esp if solemisation and wedding dinner held in one day. Hope this helps!
Hi all AS Brides,
I have invite cards leftover from the wedding. It comes with envelopes and maps. I have about 150 left, as I only used these for family and printed my own for friends. Anyone using this design and need extra can have it free, self collect. (I believe you need to pay the supplier if you need extra cards.) Leave your contact and quantity you need. Its free as I do not want to waste it so only for people who genuinely will use it and not take it because it is free but waste it in the end.
Have recently completed my wedding with Amara Sanctuary. Would like to say that despite the initial indifference, the event turned out to be really good. Kudos to the banquet folks and the quality food served at the wedding. Would certainly recommend AS to any other btb.
oh no, william is also leaving. wonder wats happening. assigned to samuel..any feedback on this guy, gals?? my wedding is 3 mths away and nothing has been done for amara sanc side...you have to basically ask them every single thing and they merely answer std replies...or pass the baton to the suppliers, with no further info..OMG..then isnt the sales job so easy...they just hv to regurgiate the package, sign contract, job done. I had coordinated with a few other hotels before for fren's wedding..they are more proactive and volunteer info & help along the way and makes u feel assured...sigh amara sanc is so laid back...
My coordinator was also William. Believe his last day was yesterday and have also been assigned to Samuel. My wedding is slightly more than a month away and William has assured me that everything has been passed over to Samuel. I guess all we have to do is just build the rapport and am sure things will turn out well.
I had the food tasting and as per what the rest who have held their weddings there, the food is really good.
I'm having Samuel right from the start since we signed on the dotted lines in Feb this year. I totally agree that he's soft and need that extra push....but if we keep asking and talking he do open up a little...maybe it's him bah....
I was finding fault with his "uneagerness"....however htb say we have to monitor ourselves too....
wowow.. Michelle, that is really so coincidence.. urs is dinner or lunch? I wonder if you r the couple that we give up our lunch to during wedding show in sept. ^^ I really like the glass pavilion a lot , so we chose AS at last..
Hi Kevely, all the best for ur prep...update me abt Samuel if u can..btw william mentioned the new favours r not approved yet..have u seen anything? And any idea how their std cake look like? still considering if I shld order my own 3 tier real cake...prob cost quite abit..
hi all, wonder if anyone knows if the glass pavilion itself will be able to host a small dinner/buffet? or is the pavilion too small?
asking cos the ballroom is really too big for me, i really want a small and intimate wedding. thanks!
Hi Tan wz,how many pax you looking at for your dinner?another nice option is Shutters the restaurant after solemnisation at the Glass pavilion..was toying with that but the restaurant can't take so many of my guests.
Hi, Tan, my fiance and I have same idea as u. so we signed the solemnization package with them in Sep. the max number of guests for Shutters restaurant is 110. max 70 pax for glass paviliion (50 sitting, 20 standing).. the shutters restaurant is nice also to have buffet. it is just like western style of wedding.
yup. i booked the glass pavilion and shutters restaurant. the time that i booked is SGD70++ per head with 15 dishes but the glass pavilion is SGD1888 net for rental only.. super ex!! their price is keep increasing. u better hurry up if u r keen.
it has already increased!! i asked for their quotation and it just came. its like this now:
Package 1: $3,888.00nett (Rental of Glass Pavilion only)
Package 2: $2,288.00nett (Rental of Glass Pavilion with food at additional $70.00++ per person for lunch &
$85.00++ per person for dinner)
how come the price increased SO much?!!! when did u book?
