hello zenusorion & pigkitty,

Hi all, can I have the contact of the wedding coordinator that u were liaising with? I tried to liaise with the banquet coordinator from SCDH but I am a little impatient and uncomfortable with her attitude.. so I am wonderng if there's anyone else that I can talk to? thankx
mine's michelle. i'm not sure where's SCDH, but over here @ GPPH, there's only 2-3 to look for. some havin vera.
talk to them, meet them, and figure if you're happy workin with them. it's important. it's the main reason why i dropped orchard hotel. the coord and us just didn't click.
you can go down and take a look at the place, if you've already talked to one of their coord. visit them in the evenin, so that if there happens to be a dinner going on, you can take a peek at the banquet room before the actual proceedings begin.
when i went, the dinner was for 29 tables. just about comfy. so 32 will be a bit stretched.
hdbanger: SCDH is the chinese restaurant up the stairs beside the front desk.
zenu: u having ur wedding at the restaurant or the ballroom? U may contact hdbanger's Michelle. Mine's Vera and I dun really recommend her.
ZR: 32 tables can be quite cramped. think the max for the ballroom is 32 tables. So check out the place on weekends when there's dinner. Check it out around 4-5pm or so. That's when the tables has been set up and before the briefing and rehearsal by the banquet manager with the couple.
to all those interested in checking out Grand Plaza Park Hotel, there's a wedding show on Saturday 28th April. Good chance to sign up with perks and discounts.
Hi all brides to be ..
i'm new in this forum. i hv went dwn to GPP yest. to view the Ballroom n am very impress with the Ballroom. I understand from the sales person that there is a upcoming bridal show on 28 Apr and very keen to sign up their pkg as the sales person was sharing with me that there is very attractive perks like free flow of beer n one bottle of wine for each table for the bridal show perk.
But, anyone can share with me on their service? as I personally hv not attended any wedding there. but heard from my girlfriend that the service is not bad.
Yes, i saw alot of comments in the past that has very positive comments. I'm just trying to gather more feedbacks. So far, me n my HTB is quite happy with the sales person tat show me around and also the ballroom.
Actually we walk into the hotel without any appointment and the sales person actually come down n meet us n show us around. So i'm very happy on their service on this as some hotel that we went, the hotel staff dun even bother to entertain us n not very friendly.
Im holding my ROM on the actual day itself.
Anyone did it b4 in GPPR? Can give me some pointers? I was wondering what time to start the ceremony as i do not want to it to be held in the ballroom itself. GPPR does provide a function room for this event.
i m also holding my solemnisation on the AD, however mine will be in may, so no pointers for u yet. When will be ur AD?
i m starting the solemnisation at 7pm. Hope that I can get the function room, as I think it will be quite cramp at the waterfall area.
Mine will be in Nov. 7pm starts the solemnisation and 7.30 for the cocktail. Am i right? However, we will have to get the MUA to come early so that we can get ready in time for the solm. I also feel that the waterfall area is abit cramp n its hot.. Dont want to get my makeup smudge b4 the dinner. haha
no red carpet along the march-in route during my wedding back in Dec 06 when its still under the parkroyal group. only dry ice and lights effects during 1st marchin, lights effects only during 2nd marchin.
Hi Bernard / Sze Wai,
Is there any theme for yr deco? Is it coz of the lightings that make it look a bit plain?
I am actually holding my wedding in GPP and am now looking for some ideas for the venue...
i doubt Duty-Free Hard liquor is allowed as from what i heard from my coordinator it is against the law. Not sure if they will do exception for you...u can try asking
Ours are duty paid liquor. I think most hotel dun allow duty free liquor as its against the law and may get the hotel into trouble.
There's no theme. Just select wat we wanted from wat's available. It looks plain right? But since the tables are quite cheap comparedto other hotels in the city,we dun really mind. We are the stars for the evening. not the decor. heh. I know some hotels have tie-ups wif florist, so u just go down to the florist there to decide on ur decorations. during our wedding, our coordinator say they will start this service this yr.
timing I'm not sure as it quite short, so we walked quite slowly. We chose the 2-doors (at both ends of the ballroom) approach for both marchins. n both marchins we enter thru diff doors. U can choose to enter by one door, either the left or the right of the ballroom, then go to the middle and down the ballrom to the stage. The middle of the ballroom is about 3.5 tables wide to the stage. and its abt 2 tables from the door to the center of the ballroom.
