Wow, you really do a lot of homework!
I've not considered M Hotel so far cos I'm not confident of the quality of the food and service standards. Would you like to share why you picked M Hotel?
I guess my priority was the ambience of the ballroom. Simply love the banquet suite and the bridal suite lor. Was rather concerned about the food too, since have heard rather bad feedback on the food. But there seems to be brides who've had an okay banquet there, food-wise. So decided to just go ahead lor. That's why did up the survey cos want to avoid the 'sure-die' food
I had my wedding last month!! I had a total diff march in.. Our march in song is "I Finally FOund Someone". My hubby came out from the AV room when the guy sings and I came in from the main door when the girl sings. We met at the centre of the ballroom and when the song reach "... i finally found someone.." we walked towards the stage ... so we turn the disadvantage of the ballroom to a advantage!! All our friends find it very interesting...
I had my wedding @ M hotel in May. Like Marilyn, we do away with the traditional couple marching in together. Our marh-in song was "Perfect Moment". When e song jus start, i march in alone from the main entrance with my hubby waiting at e centre of e ballrm(mid point of e L-shape). By time the song reach e chorus part, i met my hubby there. My hubby gave a surprise peck on my cheek b4 we continue walking up e stage.
I find tat e L-shape march-in is not a probm at all.
I reach the hotel around 2pm. We did a rehearsal before the dinner at 5pm but during the rehearsal everyhting did not turn out too well. On the actual dinner, surprisingly everything turn out perfect!!
I reach e hotel at 2pm. We met e banquet mgr at 5pm to do a final test on e music CD & presentatn & briefg. We didnt have any march-in rehersal but can u imagine tat our presentatn cant b played at 5pm? Lucky we have a backup copy w our fren. N we were keepg our finger crossed tat it can be played. Lucky it can be & everythg turn our perfect.
Am new to this thread. Will be meeting Diana, the banquet manager to discuss about the wedding package... could i get some feedback on the quality of service, food, ambience, etc. Same as Jamci, M hotel really cross my mind, until i happen to see it on the Style Magazine. Any negative feedback bs the soundman?

I just attended a wedding banquet at M hotel yesterday. The food is above average, compared to other 4 stars hotels in Singapore. However, I am not too impressed by their service level.
The waitress left the tea pot at the table, and we were expected to top up ourselves. However, they were very eager to replace the beer glass, even when the glass is still half full.
We were served french pasteries for dessert, and there were slices of cheese cake. However, we were not even given a fork or anything to eat the cake with. Basically, we were expected to use our chopsticks (which has been used throughout the banquet dinner) to eat the cakes.
However, I must say that the hotel looks pretty decent, especially with the recent renovations. Though nothing to scream about, at least everything looks new.
Coincidentally, I will be attending my company's D&D at Orchard Hotel tomorrow. Though it won't be exactly similar to a wedding banquet, I guess I can still take a look at the overall level of service, facilities, etc.
By the way, any reasons for filtering to only these two hotels? Have you considered a similarly priced Pan Pacific Hotel? Heard the food there is quite good.
Just came back from the dinner at Orchard Hotel. The ballroom is very big... there were about 70 tables for the night. Not sure whether the ballroom can be partitioned though. It looks quite magnificent... with its high ceilings and big chandeliers. As it's a company D&D, there were no floral decorations, so can't comment on that.
Didn't quite like the food though... I think the food at M Hotel was better. There was this dish of deep fried prawn stick that I didn't get to try. The reason was because they only served a dish of 9 for a table of 10. The fish was also not well done.
However, note that my comments are based on a 70 plus tables event. I give them the benefit of doubt, that Orchard Hotel could be better for less tables. The waiters/waitresses were obviously overworked, each of them serving multiple tables.
