Me planning to have 30tables...i'm just abit worried as there r 2 pillars in the gallery room. And the wedding held yesterday was 21tables only so they have the cocktail reception inside. For me, Thomson mentioned that we wil have to do it in another function room.

the recommended no. of tables for Gallery is 22 tables of 12 pax( ard 264 guests right?). More than that views will be blocked by the pillar lor....

DrFang, u can call Thomson...he is the banquet sales manager

I had my wedding there in 5 Dec 04 and was served by him too

Thanks whiteveil!! Hubby n i kinda like the place cos it seems more cozy than other hotels. SO how many tables did u have for your wedding?? Mine is max 30tables..thomson mentioned 29tables n 1reserved. But surely some of the guests wil be blocked and cant view. By the way, can put up a projector??

i only had 22 tables for my wedding....we din wan to invite more cos we dun wan the views to be blocked....seriously, if u thinking to have more tables.....dun think there is a need to pay extra to put a projector. not worth it since their views will be blocked

Hi everyone,

need advice from you all especially those who had used Trader Hotel for their wedding. Noted that the march in is from door to the stage, this disallow our guests to hv a closer look at the Bride & Groom.

Any suggestions to do a march in where we can walk from the central so that everybody can see us without blocking the guest since there are 2 pillars? Hope to do this since the hotel don't provide red carpet.

HI Sugary_lily

there is only one door for march-in for the gallery ballroom. There are however, two doors for the smaller ballroom.

maybe u can discuss with the coordinator on suggestions for march-in? im sure there r other factors to consider besides this...

I am tinking of choosing Traders for my wedding...However, it seems that Traders isnt a very popular choice and few pple have even heard of the hotel......
I went to take a look at the place 2 weeks ago and found it was alright.

Dunno about u guys...anyone went down to take a look? Heard any comments about Traders from ur frens?

Hi Liz...

My coordinator is Thomson... If I am nt wrong, their occupancy rate is v high on weekdays but lower over weekends...Yup, probably some event going on cos most hotels are quite flexible with giving additional nite or day-use rm... Another hotel which I know dun gv additional nite is M Hotel...

Other perks....they gave me day-use room, 80% invitation cards, free corkage for first 40 bottles of wine, 25% parking coupons....

I had to negotiate quite hard for the free corkage for first 40 bottles of wine and the increase in parking coupons...at first he dun agree also...

When is ur AD?

Hi mountain9,

Thanks for sending me the package too ! Wow ! You really had a good bargain wif free corkage for list 40 bottles of wine. Can you advise usually how many bottles of wine is expected for about 30 tables ? Thought only required 30% of the total number of tables, now begin to worry !

Hi Bearlover...

Well, it depends...From wat my frens told me, about 1-1.5 bottles per table should be enuff. But, it depends on the pple u r inviting...if they are the drinking sort, then got to cater more...Also, you need to consider ur parents' frens too and ur relatives....

So, not only must consider corkage, must also consider the cost involved in buying the wine!!

Forgot to add...but if ur frens/relatvies dun drink so much wine but prefer bear or non-alcoholic drinks, then u dun need to worry liao...

Hi Liz

So urs is the Temasek Room? At first I took the bigger room (is it call Gallery Rm?), but just before I signed, I saw Temasek Room and found it really lovely!! So I told my coordinator I wanna change and so I had to cut down on my no. of tables...Temasek Rm max is 19....

No la...I think u can still try to bargain. Since now additional nite stay hard to negotiate, then u should ask for more invitation cards...As for wine, maybe u can ask for say 25 to 30bottles? cos think for 15 tables should be enuff
happy.gif


BTW, I dont even have the free LCD projector!!! I have to bring my own
sad.gif


Dinner treat? I dun tink I have tat....mine has the anniversary dinner for 2 only....

BTW, u can go and view their rooms u know...jus ask ur coordinator, and she can bring u to view the bridal suite...

Yup, we can customize the deco, as long as it is within the budget. My cooridnator say that the deco is done by Stefiis, so we can discuss with them wat we want and if it is out of the budget, we need to top-up....Anyway, he say there may be new themes next year..
