I just got married at intercon this month. We had a weekend lunch and everything went well. Our banquet manager, Trina, was very attentive and understanding considering we were such a last minute couple and had so many changes to the table numbers right till the day before the wedding.
As for themes, i chose the vintage affair. Honestly i do not think u need so many themes for intercon cos that theme itself is the best u can get for the ballroom. Seriously other colours and combis just look really tacky and do not compliment the ballroom at all. If you like themes like mandarin oriental, then u shd not choose intercon. Why fuss yourself over a theme that does not compliment their ballroom?
Service wise was good, no complains and everyone had praises for the food. The only hiccup we had was we did not have enough carpark coupons to give all the guests so if anyone is having a lunch, try to have more carpark coupons rather than wine etc.
Importantly, i do not think u guys shd be so hard up about "fighting" for perks. If u are nice to the hotel pple, they will naturally waiver some stuff if they can on the actual day for you. I cant say what they waivered for me in the end but all I can say is dont be so hard up if u do not get the so called "perks" from the roadshow. At the end of the day, they will try to do everything they can to make your wedding a pleasant one.
I really enjoyed my wedding at intercon, looking back, it was the best decision i made for the whole wedding. You will never regret having it at that ballroom!
