think for the promo during the wedding show, u can choose for a waiver of 1 table on AD or complimentry food tasting. i choose the waiver for 1 table cos the food tasting is @ 50%. so ur food tasting free is because u book 45 tables or wat??
oic, so u got a great deal!!! so have u decide on which theme to go for and which BS u go?? actually GCW r very strict on the packages when u book less tables lor...sian!! i only book abt 35 tables then they gave me the anniversary free stay at their hotel!!
Yup!! they are not giving me cheaper rates..my coordinator said that e rate is $230++ per room..if for walk in customer will be $450++.
haiz..so ex lor..think mus book other places for my relatives instead
Hv finally uploaded some of the pics from the wedding show on my blog. You can take a look at them, tho they're not that well taken ;-). My id is suetanhy (on multiply). Have set it for "everyone" so you don't have to add me
For lunch banquets, there will be some differences from the dinner. Once cfmed, we will have the complimentary tasting at 50% instead of 100% free. And for the cocktail reception, they dun serve canapes...the other perks r about the same....the dishes r the same as weekday dinner...and they dun have free flow of beer...think is because normally lunch time pple dun take so much beer?
i agreed with u..i was looking @ Susu's pixs & the black theme is alittle 'off' in the grand ballroom cos everything is so beige/ white so i tink the gold theme looks better...now they ve this new seat cover to add to the look but i tink we might ve to pay extra to ve the seat covers on..anyone got any ideas?
and for the wed favours, u gals ve the webby dat i can take a look @?
and anyone print their wed cards from other printers instead of t-dragon?
im considering dat option but havent really conf yet...cos my coordinator mentioned dat we can collect the wed cards & go to other printers to print our inserts OR we can top up to design our own cards. if we go to other printers then we have to pay for everything ourselves
i havent chk out the price yet my AD is in June next year but my working schedule is pretty tied so i ve to soure early..cos after - off xmas/ cny etc i only have like 6-7mths to plan everything & conf...
I did not look carefully, yours is lunch. I thot dinner can bargain such gd price! *blurz.. But yah, $739nett is a gd deal nveless.
To the rest,
when you girls talk abt other printers... does it mean that gcw will still "provide" cost for stationary or no more liao? And you just pay for all the printing + stationary cost? Erm, is my qn clear? Heehee..
tot we are supposed to liase with t-dragons directly? have u checked out w t-dragons liao?
if not, u can start now..they have qte a few designs for u to choose, jus pay for the printing cost w do
think we are supposed to liase with t-dragon directly. I haven't gone down either. Seems to be good to go down so you can choose your designs personally, if not I suppose you can liaise with your coordinator and choose from the limited selection the hotel has as well.
Jojo, did you go down to the wedding favours shop or choose directly from your hotel coordinator?
Hi gals... i emailed eddie.. then realised that i have to go t dragon.. alamakz.. cos tt time alvin told me not to worry until they contact us.. they will liaise for us for the collection of cards n selection of flowers design all sorts
chum.. now really need to rush.. hehehehe
u haven not gone dwn yet too? hws ur bridal shoot? done le ma? mine is in oct 7
just to give some comments after our "food tasting" during our fren's wedding dinner last fri... we were rather disappointed to find out that food wasnt that fantastic after all.. alot of us find the shark fin too gluey, taro (dessert) tasted like "melted plastic" and the fried udon was very bland.
Which ballroom did your friend held his or her wedding last Friday? I thought your friend would have their food tasting session before their banquet and would have comment on their food?
So in the end did u let your friend know? should feedback to their coordinator if the food wasn't up to their standard... cos' all my frens commented that the food there are quite nice...no one complains actually...so was surprised when u commented the food wasnt that fantastic...
This is a cause of concern for us who will be holding our banquets in the near future...
if u r entitled to the bbq set, u will receive a Citibank letterhead letter from ur coordinator then u will need to go down to the address stated there to collect..i ve yet to colect mine cos they only open during office hrs..sigh
my fren's wedding was in the grand ballroom. i'm pretty sure they had their food tasting session before too.
will probably feedback to our coordinator abt the food as my fren and i have the same coordinator.
initially we were thinking of not having the food tasting (& save the 50%) since the reviews for food here were good. think we better have it now to play safe.
and one more thing to note, my fren had the "roman" theme (i don't know whats the actual name for that theme) its the one with stands at the red carpet and with a cloth draping ard it.
a few of my frens commented that its not nice and worst thing was one of the stands fell during the couple's second march-in. =\
hihi.. I had my wedding at GCW almost a year ago, and the food on my AD was very good, and all the old folkies were very happy.
However, my food tasting was a disaster. My MIL didn't like the food. Part of the reason I guess was because we made the wrong choices during the food tasting. We ended up choosing all the 'brown' looking food and everything looked very brown and unappetising... So in the end, we got the co-ordinator to give us pics of all the food, and we took a gamble and revamped the whole menu. Luckily for us the food was very good during the AD! phew!
