I'll be booking with COnrad for my wedding in Aug 07. My coordinator is Catheryn; shes a v nice lady although v busy since shes the Senior Asst Director of Catering Sales mah.... =p
Understand from her that the current package includes free 3-litre barrel of beer and 15 bottles of red wine...can exchange the wines for another barrel of beer if u want to..
As my dinner falls in 7th lunar month, i'm able to negotiate for better perks from her....*phew* =p
sawadeeka, just had my wedding at the conlad... couldnt be more pleased with my choice of hotel... special mention to Catheryn & Dalland the banquet mgr... everything went perfect under their charge... the food won rave reviews from our guests... esp the Lobster soup and roast chicken... am still going back to the Golden Peony for the delectable roast chicken... so ladies & gentleman, enjoy your wedding, you are in good hands...
anti_choo, congrats to your successful big day. Really glad to hear the good feedback about Conrad cos I'm also considering them for our dinner. I'll be having about 12-15 tables only. Care to share wat perks that you gals got from them? I'm wondering how much more can we really bargain from the package they provided? Thanks to comment!
i'm a dec 2007 btb, considering conrad for my weekend wedding dinner. Just wondering for past experiences and your estimation, for a 25 table banquet, how much do you gals think you would "lose"? thanks!
it depends on WHO ur guests are loh... usually if thee are more relatives (especially with kids), i thnk u'll "lose" more $$... if u invite those close frens, im sure they will give u an "attractive" angpao... hehe! =p
hi there .. anyone can tell me the perks we can get in Conrad ? like for e.g beer, wine, extra stay ...etc
so i can prepare myself to nego with the co-ord
actually which co-ord is recommended in conrad ?
will there be a jam during weekends ?
or difficulty in finding a carpark ?
any tips on negotiating =p thank you so much !
i had my AD on 28th may and conrad was fab! don't worry about the wedding, they're really good at coordinating things there
ahwing--> parking wasn't an issue, not tough to find. we had our wedding on a saturday, no jam. negotiations wise, they just increased the number of cards/parking coupons for us. can neg for waiver of corkage as well!
THey were lovely about the cards, hubby n i had lots of last min cancellations tho we sent out the cards already, so they gave us more than we had even neg for at the beginning!
i noticed we didn't get super a lot of perks from conrad, but they told me upfront that they focus on the service on the AD, which is completely true!
one teeny issue tho, the projector for rental is pretty expensive, they charged a lot for it in our contract..so we brought in our own one. only $88 each! if anyone wants that contact i still have it (PM me).
coco--> poster is decent size, plenty of room for ppl to sign..but for us we used a guestbook that we got as a gift during our ROM. also is easier to store than a poster!
cld i see ur pics too pls? [email protected]
also, wanna ask, how soon before your AD did conrad contact you to meet up with them to discuss abt the wedding nite, like the theme etc? me getting quite excited, less than 3 months so can't wait to start with the banquet preps!
actually i juz went for the food tasting..i'm selecting menu A, overall taste not too bad. the "tasters" liked the dessert thou i myself didn't taste it cos I dun take glutinous stuff.. i loved the chicken! wat abt you? which menu are you intending to choose?
same here, i oso dun eat any of the desserts offered.. i did ask for "ang mo" dessert, but need to top up.. u shld be able to switch to others not in the menu as long as the one u choose is cheaper or = .. i did try their ice mango sago at one of my dinners at golden peony & it was delicious but it's cheaper & the dish has no meaning so my mom says "no go"
wow ur AD coming up soon!! exciting!! as for the menu, i recall there are one or two dishes with some wierdy meat like pan fried ostrich or something. I hope I can interchange some of those dishes between A & B. the reason is I think the elderly may not be too keen to try new stuff.
yeah, i had the same sentiments abt the ostrich meat as i'm not adventurous wif food myself.. thou my co-ord mentioned tt it's one of the best dishes for them.. *shrug*..
i've not met up wif the BM yet, i oso dunno when, Conrad has yet to contact me... i dun think i'll be doing any rehearsal thou. Prob will juz leave it to my helpers & FH to handle it on AD itself..
hi ladies, just want to share with you my experience at a friend's wedding at Conrad recently, the food was really not nice. The sharksfin soup was very bland. We also have to wait very long for the dishes.
