Hello Serene, thanks for sharing your photos. Did you have 2 photographers to capture the moments at your end and hubby end? (I didn't have broadband and took a long time to view your pix...) Agree with Shihui... you really enjoyed yourself huh! ... I am still dreaming of a small wedding... JaJa
Yeap, enjoy ourselves alot. The bear was a gift from my friend. Fu qi xiang? kekeke been together for 8 years liao
The stage is not very small, comfortable cos alot of brothers went up for the yum seng session, so may looks crowded. The name on the stage is by carlton but was requested for it. Supposed to pay for it but think when we check out they never charge us
No prob, will try my best to answer your queries
For the march in pace, champagne pouring, cake cutting etc, the bride no need to bother, cos the groom is supposed to have a rehearsal with the banquet staff before the reception. Then you will just follow whatever your hubby does or cue you to do
Hi hi... I'm new to this thread. Wanted to ask if any of you could share your package at Carlton with me? AD in Jul'06. Heard mixed comments about svcs at Carlton, would like to hear your thots. What abt. food?
Thanks a bunch!!!
The food is good as it's from Wah Lok Restaurant, which is an award winning restaurant. When I invited my friends/colleagues, all mentioned that the food from Wah Lok will be something to look forward to. And they were not disappointed.
As for planner, maybe you want to contact my co-ordinator, Kelvin Khoo. He's really a nice chap and really helped us all the way till the moment that we checked out of the hotel. FYI, he's the catering manager with Carlton.
As for services, they are quite good for the co-ordinators, though email replies are rather slow...about 1 to 2 working days....and the service of the banquet staff is alright, but fantastic for the banquet manager and his assistant. The trio (Kelvin, banquet mgr, assistant) helped my hubby alot when they knew he was drunk and also when we checked out, they actually were there to send us off, help us load our luggage instead of getting the bellhop etc.
Overall experience with Carlton is EXCELLENT! <!-/quote-!><hr size=0></blockquote>
Jus check with for the deco on d stage? U request Carlton to do u huh? U decide the design or they jus give it in this way? FOC? I asked them b4, they say they do not have any deco. U think can i ask them to do it for me?
I just ask for them to do up the names, other than that, the rest of the decor on stage is standard one.....you can ask them to do for you, they quoted me $30+ but in the end, never collect the money from me and the names are still lying in my home
My first experience was not very good, I called and asked for Kelvin per this thread recommendation and Wah Lok reputation. Was told Jason is allocated according to family name and will call me back... nearly 1 week later... still no news? Huh... I went to see Marriot today.
Hi Ja Ja,
Sorry to hear that. They do take some time to get back when we make requests or enquiries. Maybe you can try calling Agnes Sut who's assisting the banquet co-ordinators for liasing. Don't have her no. on hand though....sorry.
hi everyone, i am new to this thread. I am considering Carlton as my wedding venue as well. Met the coordinator last week. Was disappointed. Cos she was not that friendly and waited for us to ask questions. Din seem helpful at all.
welcome! mi oso new here. btw who did u meet up w last wk? mine was ap**l. dun think she's v responsible cos she said yes to everything too readily. plus she has juz joined for 9 mths or so. anyway, since my fav date has been taken, we wont b considering carlton anymore.
i think we got the same coordinator. Carlton was the first hotel we visited, so we din know what to ask. But she just sat there and din offer any advice. Sigh. Rather a disappointment.
Hence not sure whether the service provided would be good or not.
I got the same coordinator too but hv signed up wif them...cos the price & perks compared to others hotels are better...after u hv compared their wedding packages wif other hotel u will hv a rough idea wat to asked and wat to asked for more...her reply are slow so u got to push her and she will reply u...hope dis will help
Rainette, Reismion, Jam05, and Loi: My FH and I go for connection. We believe we need to like the person to believe that she will give us the best. No connect, we put place on KIV. Maybe that explain why I have not settled venue.
thanks for sending me your AD pics.... you look so radiant on your wedding day
hi rainette, reismion and loi,
maybe u can request for a change of coordinator if you are unhappy with the current one. mine is kelvin, i think he's the manager and he's quick in replying to my requests over emails
heard the bridal show is coming up, can look out for more perks then
agreed connection is important too but hv many things to consider like $$, perks, food etc etc...anyway hope u can find connection & good package...since i hv signed up wif them i hope everythings will turn up good lor!!
hee.. jam choo, i understand wat u mean.. can be difficult if cannot connect.. hee.. but for me, i'm happy abt their service so far and can 'connect' pretty well wif my coordinator so no issue for me.. hence in the earlier post, i said for me, it's thumbs up!
aiyah, guess at the end of the day, diff ppl haf diff views n requirement.. impt thing is you muz be can liao! agree?
You find connection with Amara?? wow.. glad to hear that cos our connection with amara is utterly disappointing..
I just signed up with carlton not long for my wedding next june. the planner a bit blur blur but can sense she is willing to help. She is also new to the hotel but with prior experience. maybe you can reconsider with carton with an alternate date? can ask for another coordinator actually..
Congrats! have a good talk with the planner. Their package quite comprehensive though.
