I'm a Hyatt BTB at SSR too, but my AD is in Oct 2009.
I guess the perks that Kitty got were those offered during the bridal showcase. In fact, Hyatt just had a bridal showcase last month and the perks offered are the same as those that Kitty got, except that there wasn't any free stay.
i'm a Dec 09 BTB too! and having mine at Mag/Van in Hyatt. When is ur banquet? Mine's 6th Dec. I like SSR but we were worried about capacity..
actually not very far away already.. if u think abt it, it's abt 1yr from now already..
Btw come join us in Dec 09 BTB thread
yeah the pillars r a little in the way, but we figured that we'l try to arrange our tables skirt around the pillars. heh.
have u placed deposit and signed contract with Hyatt already? Please pm me if u'd like to exchange details on the perks. not good to post openly on forum
Are you intending to take the wedding favours included in the package? I'd prefer to have souvenirs rather than food items, or a mix (but not all food). But I'm not sure what else to get, if I were to get it on my own... Any thoughts?
Will you be taking the black and red theme? Me and HTB love it, but not sure if we can convince our parents... Hehe
i haven't decided on favours yet. hyatt's favours r all food. heh. i like the pralines cos i like chocolates. but i agree with u that souvenirs r more memorable. my colleague had her banquet at orchard parade hotel, n their favours were very unique - stamps! with their PS pictures. so every guest had 4 different stamps, while the hotel combined all their submitted PS pics to form a nice album, with the words "congratulations! u're now on first day cover!" or sth like that. cute.
y don't u check out some of the various wedding favour sites. under this sgbrides forum should have ppl recommending different sites. bear in mind costing too.. cost was sth that's holding me back from getting additional favours instead of using the ones provided.
black n red theme is really nice.. my girl friend will b having hers at Mag/Vanda too next mth n using black/red. i'l let u know how the whole feel is! my mum doesn't seem to b able to accept the black.. but i'l tk pics of my girl friend's banquet n show my mum. hee.
Yes, I heard about the stamps too, as one of my best girl friend is having hers there. So cool!
I've checked out the sites, but haven't quite found anything cheap and good (yes, i'm a kiam kana sometimes ;p).
I actually managed to view a black and red setup at SSR (the room I booked) as there was a wedding on the same evening i went down to meet my co-ordinator. It does look quite unusual, but nice! Was also worried that the whole room might look a little too dark and pictures might not turn out nice. But after checking with our (potential) photographer, he said he's done that before and there shouldn't be a problem. Phew!
Hi, i have just finished my wedding and will like to commend that the wedding at Hyatt was a successful one. The guests commented that the food was really nice (even nicer than Oriental which i was quite surprised..lol). As i did not have any appetite that day, i couldnt really enjoy the food. Feedback abt the service was that the waiters/waitresses were prompt and initiative - refills etc. Understand that many ppl are worried abt the pillars (which i agree), however i feel the ambience is really cosy and warm. All in all, i will like to assure u gals if you have taken up Hyatt that they will take ur comments seriously and act upon it.
Have posted up some pics for ur references. Have fun with ur wedding preps!
Hi. I'm a Hyatt BTB... Signed up with Mandy during the wedding workshop in June... AD on 28 Nov 2009 in Hibiscus room...
very happy with their service so far.. and comments abt them are very good... only one worry.. their projector screen is the mobile kind.. kinda worried that the guests at the back of the room will have trouble seeing...
Congrats to all brides for next yr! I'm a Nov'09 BTB, booked SSR for the dinner. Haven decided on the colour theme yet though i heard alot of raves abt black & red. Think it's really special but parents or older generaions may not be receptive.
congrats to u too!! Initially the date we chose was 29th nov then changed it to 19th cos we felt that alot of pple maybe going away as it was a long wkend and at the start of sch hols. Hehe... which bridal shop r u goin to??
I went down to see Camelia room yesterday. Too bad there are two big pillars there. Anyone has the photos with Camelia room can share with me? Please email to [email protected] I actually comparing Hyatt vs Regent. Maybe u gals can give me some advices.
Was considering Regent too. But if u read the posts in the Forums, Regent doesn't seem to have many good reviews on their bridal suite & inflexibility to bring food up to the suite after the wedding, etc. My HTB & I have been quite satisfied with Hyatt's svc so we signed up with them. Maybe u can consider other rooms at Hyatt?
I had the Camelia Room for my banquet. the pillars weren't too much of a problem cos I arranged the tables such that the guests wouldn't have their views blocked. but it could be also because I only had 12 tables so the table configuration wasn't too tight. anyway I will go through my pics and see if there's any I can email to you that will be helpful.
oh btw, I did consider the Regent when I was deciding on the banquet too, but I didn't like the configuration of their small ballroom. I remember the room was longish and because I didn't have many tables, a lot of my guests would be sitting quite far from the stage. so I decided to take the Camelia Room instead.
but my wedding was quite a while ago, so not sure if the Regent's ballrooms have changed since then.
I am considering GH Grand Ballroom as one of my potential banquet venues. Met up with the coordinator to discuss the package but felt that it was rather pricey for weekday package and didn't offer any free flow of beer or corkage waiver. It's certainly a premium over Marina Mandarin or Swissotel Merchant Court, which at a lower Nett$$ per table. Can any GH Bride share their experience when choosing their banquet venues?
Appreciate if you could send me your wedding photos which i'm looking for it urgently. Btw, i have rejected Regent. u are right the room is longish n pretty old too... I did consider the location and name of the hotel. I asked a lot of my friends n relatives, they never heard Regent hotel before, so i decided dun take the risk.
Who was ur coordinator last time? My one is Desiree which i think she is not friendly enough.
