thanks for ur recommendation, i've heard alot abt kelvin fr this forum too. ok will contact him soon..really ned someone who is reliable & responsive. btw hv u heard of any carlton wedding show coming up?
Hi Wanda, I tried emailing carlton wedding packages for next year but never got a reply. It either the address was wrong or was it becos it was handled by that bo chup person..marina mandarin and a couple of hotels had increased the rates..so brides of 2006 better start your sourcing...
Try seeing the threads for bride 2006..they had already booked!
gals, I am a Carlton bride and my banquet is next weekend.
Maybe you can try calling them @ 6311 8183 or email Kelvin [email protected] (Catering Manager)or Agnes (Banquet Co-ordinator) @ [email protected]. So far, I have been receiving very prompt response from them.

My banquet is on 26th June, so I don't think you will be seeing my setup
<font color="aa00aa">Hi Geberra</font>,
Kelvin was assigned becos my previous co-ordinator, Diana left and Kelvin is her boss, so they passed my file to him. I dunno if it's assigned based on FH's surname but FYI, FH's surname is Yeo.
Just want to share with you my experience @ Carlton. We went there for site visit and the person attending to us was late. First impression is not there already. Secondly, after showing us the ballroom, she just showed us the package without going through with me. She wanted me to go through it by myself. I find her no initiative at all. Lastly, she was rushing as she had a wedding dinner on that night. Wellz, if she knew that she's having an event on that day, she shouldn't have meet us in the first place. Overall, the service I got was poor. I'm not trying to sico anyone here. Just my experience.
i think there are some coordinator who are not very helpful and there has been complaints from earlier postings....
but i think can also consider other factors like the venue, food, ambience etc.... cos i have heard from many frens that Wah Lok food is really very good.... if coordinator is not helpful, can still request for a different one
you can get those perks during the bridal show. wine waiver is a standard item
hi hamster gal,
may i know when will their wedding fair be?
went down last week to take a look @ the empress ballroom, the cooridinator mentioned theres 2 ballroom but didnt show me the 2nd one.. izzit the esplanade ballrm?
i not too sure if the cooridinator attended to me is easy to nego with coz when i mention if i can get 10 pax food tasting coz our families consist of 10 ppl, also like cant get it.
coz we in rush of time too thus i also didnt ask more for nego on the spot. wonder if i am able to get extra peaks off the current package. =(
Hi sleepysleep, wedding fair is in sept (i think lah. If I din rem wrongly what my co-ordinator mentioned b4)…
Yup the esplanade ballroom is on 4th floor, much smaller one..can hold max 16 tables..maybe ur co-ordinator din show u cos of ur estimated no.of tables?
hi sleepysleep, the extra room nope..onli helpers room...but if u reali fix on it, u may not want to wait till the fair..cos although they throw in perks but sometimes the prices may differ..u may want to check with ur co-ordinator
