I also booked mine at waterfront. My bf wanted riverfront. I find it too cramp to squeeze 20 tables. Although they reassure that they will rearrange the tables so that it won't be block by the pillars, i still think it will still be affect somehow lor. The march in, you can do a L-shaped as wat the coordinator told me. Depends of how you want to do it lor.
The food is really good. Tempted to get the dessert buffet...but think not that worth it. As what Shynn said....not many guests will have the space for dessert buffet.
I have one qns, is the food halal? Will the hotel accomodate my request if I get them to serve for one guest??...
Hi Lizzy, yes, your contract will indicate as a note : *Indivdual set Chinese Vegetarian or Muslim Dinner can b arranged @ S$79.90 per person(6-Course)*
If you are taking weekday will be abv priced, if weekend will be $99.90 per pax
but bear in mind, this s on top of e per table pricing tt u ve paid
the hotel is not halal certified as they served alcohol. i asked tis questn b4 cos i might have 1 Malay frenz coming for my wedding.
The ans - u will have to top up for that 1 guest.
i.e. If ur package is the $999 package and ur table sit 9 chinese + 1 malay, u will have to top up 999/10pax = 99.90 for 1 malay guest = u are paying 999 + 99.90 for that table.
My coordinator advise me to sit 10 chinese guest + 1 malay guest = we are still paying 999 + 99.90 but you will have 11 pple @ the same table.
Got it? and u need to inform ur malay guest that all the food etc is from hala certified supplier & the food is alos prepared by malay chefs BUT the utensils are all wash in the 'malay way' - i dunno how to explain the 'malay way' to u but my coordinator mentioned that the malays have a 'way' of washing their utensils etc cos some malays might mind.

Hi Atiyah, Jv
I duno..he looks like he wants other place, club chinois if im not wrong...
Perhaps its just that he is lazy to see more, he said all hotels the same...true to a certain extent, but then since he dun like and he's the finance minister, I gotta respect him
Hi Jennifer, I wanted tat day initially! hehe...I had to give up that date and place SOB
Club Chinois is nice! Too bad, it's too chn for my husb. My Husb-to-be is also my finance minister! Haha..
To Deannen & Lizzy, abt the extra for $79.90 for Muslim/vegetarian menu, issit really like wat you said?
Mine is mix marriage, therefore this banquet is for the chinese side. But my muslim in-laws will be invited... Hmm but I hv 2 full tables of Muslim menu.. Tt makes it the same, i.e. $79.90 x 10 pax = sunday package, rite? It's the mixing muslim/vegetarian frens among chn part that I forgot to clarify w Jeremy! Yikes...
if u have 2 full tables of Muslim then okie - they can make exception for that 2 tables, meaning u pay $799 (if urs is the weekday package) for a 6 course Muslim menu.
BUT, if ur in-law is sitting with u guys @ the VIP table then u will have to top up...im not sure if they can make an exception anot BUT u can try to talk to ur coordinator =)

I didnt go for the wedding show, as i already signed up end of last year enjoying uob card promotion... but this wedding show perks are really GOOD!
glad to see the pics u guys have uploaded! Quite nice themes we have there...have yet to go down to florist tho... hehe
Woah.. it's double happiness for yr nikah. Congrats ya!
Same as you, we're doing the nikah on saturday too! But it's 14 June 08. Erm, wat's sanding? For me, it's Sat solemnisation followed by Mly banquet either @ cc or under his blk, then next day Sunday @ gcw for chn.
The mly wedding we booked the decor and food pple already. Then last wk settled this one (phew!), maybe we will start bridal shop searching next mth... How abt you? How's yr prep coming along?
To the rest of the girls,
It's great to see many happy and excited bride to-bes. Hope all our weddings will be a bash!
i tink what we are getting are all std..dun tink they will neg for anything more..unless someone here says otherwise..cos after much comparison wif other hotels, their perks is by far one of the best, considering their decor & gd svc/ food reviews from many who have attended the wed dinner @ GCW. All the misc stuff that we want to bargain for i.e. 2 projector screens, parking yp to 30% etc etc is all being given to us FOC as perks liao so in tink dat is it =)
anyone ve went down to June florist..care to share the experience & also, any idea roughly hw much it cost to do a top-up?
i manage to get 1 free wine per table and free waiver of corkage for wine and liqour.. free flow beer.. 2 nights stay plus 1 helper room.. changed my coach transport to buffet dinner for 2 at thier hotel on our 2nd night stay.. but mine is book in late june, under ocbc or uob promo (cant remember)
think the perks u can neg for is based on the number of tables u confirmed with them.. the more tables, the more perks they give.. mine is 45 tables confirmed, on Sat dinner..
i personally feel that i got all the stuffs i wanted that i dun have to pay any additional stuffs for that night anymore.. (maybe just another 1 dozen of wine that's all)
u managed to get 2 nights' stay @ the bridal suite? dat is a very gd deal..cos i neg with them but they refused to give in...in the end i use my helper's room for the 2nd night stay there..... cos my helpers won't be staying..even if they do, they will want to book separate rm wif their bfs...
i chk wif them rdg the corkage..we have to pay 15 per bottle of wine..urs free also???
i conf min 40 tables and on sat but didnt managed to get all the perks u got..thought mine is quite gd liao..urs even better =)
and Velynn, when did u book? i booked before the wed show but i got the perks....
i think it all depends on the promotion they were having at that time, diff promos diff types of perks...but so far, i think the wedding show perks are the best!
I dun have much complains abt my perks obtained, except for the food tasting which is NOT FOC, but others we managed to bargain to suit our needs..
But if wait till weddin show, we wont get the dates we want liao... hehe so give and take a little
