nope.

i find that not worth to top up since not many of them want to drink as most of them drive.

i heard feedbacks saying the wine was nice..

hi jacqueline, can try! no harm doing that..not so much of a negotiation acrually but more on whether if the hotel is willing to hold the date for you..if they are not willing to do that now, then can't be helped i guess..

sleepy..do you have if the wedding show last sat partner with which bridal shop?

Need to clarify, though there's a corkage fee waived, can we bring in DFS wine/alcohol?
 

supergal

New Member

hmmm..feline arh..rem that they are quite famous for their layered gowns with red hems on each layer..quite special!

think can just let the hotel coordinator know how many 'DFS' stuff you are bringing & they will be able to do 'something' for you... ;)

supergal, thanks babe! actually william did inform me.. but the thing is my bf is working on a proj this week so there isnt any time we can go down this week.. so i guess i shall continue to source and wait... zzz..

but still, really thank you very much!!

no problem! hopefully, you and HTB will eventually find an ideal venue that both of you like!

and oh, i had a look at the 2010 packages and i must say that there are quite alot of difference from the 2009 packages! i think if i'm in your shoes, i may also reconsider as many of the impt perks like free flow beer AND 1 bottle of confirmed wine are no longer there le..now there is even corkage charges as well. there seem to be no changes in the menu and i saw a surge in the package price! that's why i do think the weddig show perks will be important here...

anyway, happy searching gal!

supergal, i guess times r really bad that hotels are taking away quite a lot of things.. haha!!
so far, for 2010, i only managed to find 1 hotel giving free flow beer and wine. It's a 4 star hotel (i think) and price per table is about $950..

i guess i would need to wait and source around more.. Thank again, babe!

Hi everyone! I just had my wedding last Saturday at Grand Park and I must say that the expereince was really very good!
Firstly, they were very prompt with their services before, during and after the banquet. The manager, Angus, was attentive and detailed and he did his best to make sure everything went smoothly.
Next, our guests commented that they really enjoyed the food. I only found out the day after the wedding that it was prepared by a banquet kitchen! I always thought it was by Park Palace! The portions were big and the food was fresh and fantastic. The guests really like the food. Even my Muslim friends commented that their food was really good too!
Thirdly, we extended our stay at the suite and they were really nice to give us a late check out and after that, they even offered us on their own accord, a later time for check out! Their food for room service was great too!
Though Grand Park is not considered a five star hotel, but its services deserves a five star rating. We love the place, the ambience and the service there.

Jasmine> Great to hear your positive feedback! What do you mean by banquet kitchen? Is it at the hotel itself? I have been thinking that it is by Park Palace too...

dzxz> In a way the coordinator's job will end on the day of our wedding and it will be pass on to the banquet manager.

dzxz- We got the executive suite as the other suites were either taken or used for the wedding show. However, it was a nice size and we liked it. We had to pay $430++ for extension without breakfast
Nana- the banquet kitchen is at the back of the ballroom. That's where they cook all the food.

Hello, can I find out whether GPCH provides any special services, such as preparing pre-dinner & post-dinner snacks for the couple. Under the Novotel thread, I saw pictures of desserts & cocktails placed in the bridal suite, & am impressed by their thoughtful gesture. However, GPCH scores high in terms of menu & food reviews. I have shortlisted these 2 hotels so far, & would like to seek for more opinions.

Hi chocolatepraline.. Yup GPCH do provide pre or post dinner....

oh ya..I am goin to contact my JP soon...but our hotel name had change right..what is the actual name I should say?

New Member
chocolatepraline, novotel quite strict... just met up wih coordinators and everything is no lor.. nothting to negotiate... zzz...
If I really have to choose, i probably would choose GPCH between the 2... sisnt managed to meet up with GPCH earlier coz last min got things happen... but so far, should be ok... u might wanna wait for their next wedding promo to see what else they can offer...

hey jacqueline, you are back in this thread again! hehehe

yup, i would say novotel very strict~ that time i met up with huiling and everything is a NO! till i also sian liao..so in the end, din consider signing up with them
 

sweetcyanide

New Member
haha! thanks supergal.. actually have been busy at work lah.. plus receeing hotels..

ya ya... i also met hui ling.. very sian right?? i say wanna try the wine since they are giving 1 bottle per table. she says can be arranged but will need to deduct 1 from my package. o_O

GPCH is not bad lehz, but was thinking to wait for the next show to see what perks they have...

gals, from your experience, is it possible to nego anything from GPCH??
 

supergal

New Member
hihi, if you still consider GPCH as a possible venue, would advise that you should try contacting william again to at least hold you preferred date for you! no obligations when you request them to hold the date but of course, when it comes to a "competitive" couple who also wants the same date as you, then decision will have to be made!

negotiation wise, actually not much from the hotel also but i heard they are quite flexi if you wish to exchange something for another..i didn't nego much cos the hotel can provide most of the basic needs that i want..but additional nite stay is hard lah..
 

sweetcyanide

New Member
supergal, thanks for the advise.

I am trying to get wine cockage waived, projectors included and extend the beer to start from 7 instead of 8 lehz.. u think possible??

i agree, additional night is very hard and it's at least $450++ leh!!!

Does anyone know if the hotel will provide ang bao box? I saw very cute ang bao boxes at their wedding show... Any picture to show for those who just had their wedding in GPCH?
 
dzxz & Jacqueline: Thank you for sharing. Actually, I have also spoken to Huiling from Novotel over the phone & true, everything's a 'no no'. I didn't sense much sincerity from the way she talked. The dishes listed in their menu are very simple, when I compared with GPCH. If everything goes well, I should be signing up with GPCH. Have you all got complimentary canapes for cocktail reception? How's the portion like?
 

dzxz

New Member
Hi Super gal okie thks ya....

huh rent ar ...so funny de .....

yup got the canapes but not sure hows the portion like but from what I heard from my coordinator is like spoon by spoon on try and thing is not alot ba.....cos mine is a weekday so I not really worry on the canape cos I think many will miss the cocktail waahaha
 

sweetcyanide

New Member
thanks sleepy for the info.. maybe shall try negotiate with william. coz the charges for projector rental is $300 for 2...

any idea when would be the next wedding show??
 

supergal

New Member
i think projector rental charges may be able to waive off..cos i rem that time my co-ordinator also automatically waive off for us!

as for the next wedding show, the earliest should be half a year from the last i guess..so should be in november i guess? maybe you wanna check with william to see whether if he has any idea on this? but sometimes, i realised that if they are unsure of anything, they won't divulge any info..but guess that's normal ba..don't wan other pple to think they give empty promises..
