    Hi I'm a June BTB. I'm considering Marriott, Hilton and Swiss. Initially wanted Pickering but max 30 tables, so had to reject that. Any idea about these 3 hotels?

    Hello! Just attended a wedding in Marriott a few weeks back and Hilton was on my to-visit list when we were hunting for venues.

    Marriott Tangs:
    The food is really good. The ballroom is nice and they have a wide variety of themes. We didn't their min table count so didn't shortlist this as one of the venues.

    Our table count is small so we only qualified for the Vista Room which I wasn't very fond of because the reception area is right next to the ballroom's (and given ballroom size, the guest count will definitely overpower that of the Vista Room's so I wasn't keen). Your table count should get the main ballroom which just got renovated in Oct 2016. The coordinator is very very friendly (Grace Yeow) and she's quite flexible with perks. Most importantly, the team was prompt in replies. They are priced quite competitively even with the new ballrooms. If you can get the main ballroom it's a pretty good deal. Only downside that I can think of is I don't really like their new themes.

    Hope this helps! And gratz on the upcoming wedding! :)

    Hey hey!

    Thanks for the tips they are really helpful!!! I will go check out Hilton. I heard they recently renovated and it looks grand.

    Also congrats too on your wedding!! Have you decided on other things like PWS?

    Hilton have a wedding show coming up I think (remember seeing it somewhere in the Singapore Brides Event page) - I'm sure can get better perks during the show.

    Thank you! Well not yet. We kinda got lazy after settling the venue hahaha. Probably need to start hunting bridal studios soon! Not thinking of a formal PWS though... we are considering a casual one. What about you? :)

    I just scheduled an appt with master long, apparently he is quite busy this few weeks:(( Only able to meet him up after CNY. I do have some dates in mind, just want to get his opinions.
    Anyway I considering to go Marriott wedding fair this month. Anybody BTB 2018 here joining? anyone start sourcing for hotel?? I tried email couple of hotels and noticed some have dates booked til Mar-Apr 2018. So I think is good to secure the banquet place first!

    Hi there.
    I went to Master You Long Zi. Have my date calculated, June 2018. I have a few days to consider.

    Pre-wedding Photoshoot - decided

    Hotel & AD - still looking around

    Duno where to start from yet too! Any suggestions?
  11. hellobunny

    hellobunny Member

    Congrattsssssss! Start with budget and table count hahaha so it can give you a feel which hotels falls into your criteria too. Best is also to have a selected date already so it's alot easier to shortlist hotels too :)
  12. Sze

    Sze New Member

    Yes. I do have a date in hand that I'm considering, which is 30th June, about 30tables.. budget within 30k for about 30 tables, possible? Actually was considering York hotel but does not know how is the hotel for wedding? I use to go to the hotel Yearly for their Penang food fare only.

    Hi, can I check when do we source for JP? Is sourcing now very kiasu??
  21. happypotato

    happypotato Member

    You can try contacting the JP but most of them probably gonna say it's too early so they won't confirm anything. Some of the JP license will expire this year and they may or may not renew that's why cannot confirm anything as well.

    I remember some BTB in this forum said they will only confirm 3 months before the date.

    gulps, looking at the forum , I seem way behind in planning.. :(

    Perfectionist89 New Member

    No worries, still have ard 11mths to go..but.if yr date is a "hot" date then you better faster shortlist n book yr venue as u will be surprise there r many ppl who book venue very early...
  35. Ed.H

    Ed.H New Member

    Thanks for the assurance ! Fingers crossed , Shangri la is out lest we go for the later dates . Generally avoiding that as he has a bigger work assignment during those periods.

    On a side note , is anyone here going for a made to measure with any of the local designers ? I have been quoted a range of 4.5k to 5k for MTM rental .. ain't sure if that's the usual rate
  36. Ed.H

    Ed.H New Member

    Hello !

    Hmm, mine is likely gonna be a restaurant inside a hotel.. even the event coordinator keeps highlighting .. we aren't a ballroom , we are a restaurant

    That's cos everything also wanna charge extra ..

    Getting married in october 2018!

    Because we are both catholics, so we are getting married in a church. A day reception for extended family, followed by a dinner for close family and friends.

    Both my fiancè and I thankfully have relatively easy going families, so it's been pretty okay so far.

    So far we have confirmed the church, priest and restaurant. Looking around for wedding photogs, bridal gowns and si dian jin (my mother is teochew, so she is quite insistent on following that tradition lol).

    I plan to source each vendor à la carte as frankly I am a fussy person:p

    This thread is so quiet! Hahaha. Any updates from any june 2018 btb? :)

    Anyone doing luncheon and solemnization on same day? Would be great if anyone can share schedule!
  39. alpaca

    alpaca New Member

    I am! As of now rough schedule is 11am solemnisation, 11.30am tea ceremony, 12.45-1pm lunch banquet starts. No gatecrash so we will head to the hotel at 9.45am.

    hellobunny Member

    Ahhh thanks for sharing! :) we are thinking of around the same timeline as u haha but we got gatecrash (prob do a small short one and make him sing but no funny food/games). Guess theres less variation in timing to play with for lunch.

    Hows your prep going? :)
  41. alpaca

    alpaca New Member

    I have booked venue, mua for myself and mums and pg. That's all! You?

    Will you be squeezing out time to do photoshoot before solemnisation? Or after banquet? I am thinking of whether to do one..
  42. hellobunny

    hellobunny Member

    Quite similar to your progress!

    I've booked venue, bridal studio (for AD gowns and MUA but may end up using for mums instead...lol), PG,VG and photobooth!

    Haven invite bridesmaids yet!

    We are thinking of doing it post gatecrash and on way to hotel - the photoshoot i mean haha. Tts why thinking of doing a really short gatecrash just for the mood then move on to other stuff haha.

    Which MUA did u engage for ur bridal makeup?if u are ok to share :)
  43. alpaca

    alpaca New Member

    Ic! I already booked my makeup to be ready by 9.30am so theres no time to do photoshoot before solemnisation. Need to be at the hotel by 10.15-10.30am. Maybe gonna just take a few shots around/nearby the hotel after the banquet. I engaged Christine Chia.
  44. hellobunny

    hellobunny Member

    I see. We havent exactly plan out the schedule yet but will prob do gatecrash like 730am timing to maximize the time inbetween haha.

    Wow Christine's portfolio is very very nice! Im still shopping ard.. undecided haha. Its really nor easy to choose! Anything i shld look out for when looking for MUA?
  45. alpaca

    alpaca New Member

    Oic! If it is 7.30am, gotta start makeup latest 5.30am (for most MUAs). But Christine's lead time is 3 hours. I heard she's very meticulous :)

    Perhaps you should start planning the schedule and book MUA asap to avoid disappointment. Your AD is 23 June right? Its a hot date!
  46. hellobunny

    hellobunny Member

    Omg 3 hrs! Its gg to be so amazing! :)

    Yeah its time to get moving again - gotten abit lazy after the big items were settled! Yup 23 june 2018. is it a hot date!!?? Alamak i tot its not hot at all coz number not much significance hahaha.

    Better start moving liao!
