Hi Sept 03 Bride,

you are at the same fate as me and SY, even though I have not signed with them also cannot entitled to singnet promo. Trust me, I try to fight for it.. but I lost the battle. Though I m sad, but I guess I m not the only one who didn't have the singnet promo too.

Hi SP,

I got nothing towards Eugenia, and I don't mean any offence to her, I was just feeling very injustified for smallady. I didn't said that it was Eugenia who gave the lame excuse. I don't know her personally, since she's not my coordinator. But I can see from the postings here that she's very popular and helpful.

Hi smallady,
the different between the singnet promo and your package is that there's one more dish for your package. Why don't u try to ask if they can decrease the price if u cut one dish, that is provided u dun mind having 8 dish lah. just a suggestion.....

sy

Guest
Hi smallady, and Sept03bride,
We are together. Mine's $688 too. I think they are worried that they might open the floodgate if they allow us to change...esp with this forum discussion. I mean, if they agree to one, they will have to agree to all.

But then, their mgt style is strange too. When i visit/call up other hotels (e.g. marina mandarin, orchard hotel, crown prince, grand copthorne) they will tell me their ongoing promotion upfront without me even having to ask.

Anyway, thks to Jas77 for feeling injustice on our behalf = )

Hi gals,

So many postings out of sudden!! Why not smallady, sy, twinklets & sept 03 bride "gang" up together & negotiate with HIPV again ... maybe can fight and take back justice.

What's is this singnet promo going on? You mean they cannot offer to you gals even you hv not sign on the dotted line of confirmation letter?
Correct me if I'm wrong cos I kinda confused but kapo & want to know what happen???

Hi small lady and SY,
mine is a weekday package and it is $638nett
no doubt it is just a difference of like $20 per table but its like a few hundred dollars off the bill..
hmm... should we "pa kak" together and ask for it? Hmm....wonder what will my co-ordinator say

Hey ladies...

Dont worry about Euginea boss. He is a nice man. I believe that if they can give something they will. Maybe its beyond their means.

One thing I must point out is that the bridal suite is pretty warm. So when I have a few people in the suite, my make-up tends to melt.
 

agnes

New Member
Oh... another thing is.. if u think your friend or relative is going to drink & drive, tell them better dun, cos I find HIPV's carpark very dangerous, as it is narrow and curvy

Hi Sancai,
No lar.. i'm not gog to negotiate wif Eugenia 'cos i noe nutting will come out from it. Furthermore, I've already signed on the dotted line. Confirmed & Chop chop.
crazy.gif

What's over is already over for me, no point to dwell further.
lame.gif

Having the promotion price is defintely a bonus to me, but me & FH feel our price is still affordable & reasonable to us.
All I hope is my wedding nite to be a wonderful & beautiful nite. The pricing wise.. - i close 1 eye.

Hi Jas77

Thanks for being understanding towards my point of view, din mean to upset uo lor. SORI !

To the rest of the brides
I guess they will do something for you, just be patient, speak to your wedding consultant nicely and try to understand their situation too as they understand ours, me one of the culprit who always giving my wedding consultant headache.
I understand this promo is for singnet subcribers only, so it's not open to all couples who make the enquiry, only those who mention that they are the subscribers will enjoy this exclusive promo package.
Hope I din offend anyone again this time.

Hi sy,

Maybe diff hotel diff management sigh... Traders hotel, also sent me an email updating me abt the promotion they have too recently. I email back thanking them. But I guess we are not the only ones who dun benefit fm this singnet promo too. So I sort out my thoughts liao, it is okay.

Hi Sancai,

now singnet is offering S$618 for mon-friday and sun, and S$688 for sat. oh becoz some of us not able to change to singnet promo even though we have not signed up the confirmation. After much thinking I think I will stick to the orginal package and choose HIPV.

hi Smallady & Sept03bride,

Think we are on the same boat.. think partly why we like HIPV is partly becos of the lovely ambience & partly of Eugenia too.(for me lor..) My FH also likes her alot, he said this is the 1st time he met a salesperson so sincere & helpful. She had helped us alot before we can confirm the date that we wanted. When we noe we can get that good date, we really jumping wif joy.
happy.gif
Really very grateful to her, & tat's why we bought her a small cute lil' bear as a form of appreciation.
I think if the consultant is not as good as hers, I think i long time go to look for other hotels liao.

Eugenia has areadi emailed the confirmation agreement to me.. so after I confirmed that all is ok, then can signed areadi.
So maybe within these few days lor.
I went up to the bridal suite on Sat.. seems not too bad ... so din regret choosing HIPV
Initially I wanted to take M hotel coz I tot the ballrm+reception area look quite cool. But then their max capacity is only 32 tables so i decided to opt for another place instead.

Hi ladies,

I have a concern regarding the lighting in the ballroom and hope someone can enlighten me.

I went to a dinner at HIPV last week and realised that when the couple marched in, the lights in the ballroom were not dimmed. Thus, the march-in was not that romantic cos of the very bright lights. And after checking with Eugenia, found out that there's no spotlights in the ballroom. Also the sound system on the day of my friend's wedding is a bit soft and muffled. we couldn't hear what the emcee was talking about. it seems like only he and the couple on stage can hear him.

I'm very concerned about these aspects. Can someone share with me what can I do to rectify all these problems? Was told that we could dim the lights but if we do so, won't it be too dark to see the couple marching in?

Hi EL,

My walk-in was dimmed and we had no problems with the music & sound system. I had a friend to be music co-ordinator to check the sound system & music. he also cued the dimming of lights and when the music faded in & out.

Hi jas,

I had a day room from check-in until 8 pm. it's free of charge, but availability is dependent on room occupancy. they will give it to you if there are rooms available. the HIPV banquet sales coord booked the room for me few days before. the room really helps. my parents & helpers were there to shower, change, rest, makeup... etc.

Hi EL,
Both my first and 2nd walk in was dimmed, the guests could still see us well...

There are no problems with the music or sound syatem, Kelvin was there to make sure everything was carried out smoothly.

Hi EL,
i have a day use room for the sword bearer from 4:30pm till 11pm. It free of charge. I ask for it cos the guys need to keep the sword and uniform after the march.

My wedding is next yr so dunno abt hte sound system.
 

jas

New Member
Hi Orchid,

do we need a friend to be a music coordinator? I thought the hotel staff will take care of everything? That's why I did not plan for such a role in my helpers' list. By the way when was your wedding? The room is big enough for all your helpers as well as parents?

Did anybody has their walk-in not from the main entrance but from the side? HIPV has 2 side doors, I'm thinking of entering from there. My hubby from one door and me from the other. Is it appropriate? Any advice or comments?

Dear ladies

I'm back, had the best time of my life at the HIPV. Thumbs up for everything, from food to service to setup to music and co-ordination.
We were so excited and nervous and blur blur. Luckily got Eugenia and Kelvin to calm us down.
The dinner went on perfect except for some guests arriving late, sigh........
I felt like a queen on that day, alleyes were on me and I felt so beautiful lor, hehehehe.
I must say Eugenia really gives personalised service and I'm really very comfortable with her.
She made me feel that I'm not alone and all the other brides go thru the same anxiety too, come to think of it, kind of silly to think that I'll trip over my gown for my march in!?
We gave her a small token of appreciation after the dinner, nothing much , just for good luck lor. One more thing, many of my guests complimented on the food ( delicious and generous portion ) and service. My parents & in-laws are so happy that they ask their relatives' children to have the wedding here too !!!!
Glad that it's finally over and it still remains sweet in my heart. I must say a big thank you to HIPV especially to Eugenia & Kelvin & his efficient staff who made it memorable for us.

SP
