Sweet - ya i went for the food tasting two weeks ago, overall still ok..i chose fruit cake and chocolate for my favours, the bear is quite nice can be used as as handphone acccessories, but i thk something for them to eat is better than them bringing something home to throw.
Yup, henry did mentioned about that, they are changing the seat covers batch by batch. He informed that they will have to team on my AD, one to place the seat covers, another to check all the seat covers to have those tear replace, very happy to hear that they have this extra effort made.
I let him handle everythings including my decor, can have less hassle.
zonkkie - they are using roses and henry recommeded champagne colour for the flowers..they got blue, red etc thought.i am not very particular on the decor so din really request for much change just take whatever Henry recommended and they looked nice too.
They only got 2 types of flower stand for the aisle, i chose the one that looked more dreamy and elegant. Henry recommended that too mentioning it is more suitable for MC.
You get to choose the colour scheme of the lighting, but i chose blue, the photos that Henry show us is very nice, no longer the initial feeling that MC is too white.
One thing is only your 2 VIPs tables got sash around the chairs, all the rest will only be with seat cover, but i am ok with that too, have the mentality that my guests wont remember all these things too after the banquet.
glad to hear that the seat covers are being changed batch by batch and they even have someone to check and replace the torn ones..good service!
actually for the lighting effect, you can show different lights for different march-in, 1st dish presentation..and even have the side in 1 color and the centre aisle in 1 color.. can play ard with the colors..
jitpong: me too did away with the guest book. found it unnecessary and i dun like the idea of signing in, maybe i tot it was always a bad idea for my friends who were at the table helping me making them looks like receptionist.
on my AD, all the little things were in placed and there was no complains from the guests, all were compliments abt the food and wine. after the dinner till today, they still asking abt the wine n the food n my wedding invite which i sent out... kekekek...i would only say... MM's service is Value for Money. Thumb's Up for MM.
Like jitpong had mentioned, no one would bother abt the deco, i am more concern abt the food n wine.
Sweet: MM usually replaced their damaged chair covers, so rest assured. if u are not comfortable, maybe take a stroll before ur MUA arrive. As for me, i ask my MUA to be at MM at 5pm, she is done by 6pm. i went down to take a look, and at the same time.. entertain my guest as well (not wearing my WG, as i had another EG). I went up to change at 8.00pm. MC has the lighting effects... u can make use of them to make ur banquet real nice n classy. Be real careful when u choose the flowers along the aisle... ask ur coordinator for the BEST ideal deco.
Ling - i only thought that by having a guest book it will only caused a jam at my reception table, only making things difficult for my friend who help at the reception, furthermore, i wanted 1 thing less in my storeroom...hahaha
Anyone has experience having solemnisation before wedding dinner at Mandarin Court? I plan to have the 2 events back to back.
I paid deposit yesterday, relieved to have confirm the ballroom finally!
yes u indeed can have both things back to back. u can do ur 1st bridal walk in, then go on stage for the solemisation, then cake cutting... all can happen at one go... it depends on wat u wan.. u too can have it earlier, which is like 5pm. if u wan all to witness it, better do it during the dinner... the 1st Dish wont be served till u have taken ur seat after the cake cutting.. if u need to know more, u can give me a ring... 93669005, carole
the last time i attended a wedding at MM, it had pretty "zhor-dang" pillars.. anyone have any idea which room is that? i remember once i come out from the lift i have to turn left..on the right was also another wedding couple, and i was told the ballrooms are exactly the same, just mirror image..
wrt ur question, there are 2 ballrooms on the 4th floor...when u turn left there is mandarin court which is much bigger than belvedere room on the right. ballrooms are not the same at all. belvedere got zhor dang pillars even if u only have 25-30tables. whereas mandarin court can hold 30-50tables comfortably. if got less than 40tables,then there will be no blockage by pillars at all.
Glad to know that so many gave gd comments for MM.. I m still comtemplating whether to hold my wedding at MM, cos i oni have ard 27tables, so can oni take Belvedere.. but I m worried abt the pillars.. anyone can advise whether the pillars will be a blockage?
I m liaising with Francis.. he seems like a very nice uncle... anyone manage to ask for free wines/food vouchers?
i went down just yesterday and there was an ongoing wedding at mandarin court!!! the set up was quite grand and i barely noticed the pillars (which is a rare occurence!!)though i think they were wrapped round with chiffon sashes or someting?? yesterday the wedding had 35-40 tables i think and it looked just nice. infact i think belvedere pillars looked older, duller and HUGE. but its personal preference la. have u seen ACt 1 yet?? i was so bowled over but i have too many tables so cant fit in!
i am liasing with malcolm who is truly a nice outgoing person but may i say a bit buaya..=) but comfortable to work w. think 27 tables in belvedere will be ok...maybe only a few pp at 1-2 tables may be blocked. why not expand to 30 and use mandarin court? sure no blockage then.
if you did take a catalog of their wedding package you will be able to see a small photos featuring the bedroom of the suite. The suite is separated into a bedroom and recreation room, so it is relatively very big and comfortable
I also hoped that I can have more tha 30 tables then can straightaway take MC.. but think 28 is the max i can have. I asked Francis if we can take MC, he said quite difficult cos less than 30.. no choice, if i take MM, have to take belvedere.. But you were saying the pillar looked duller and older... how now?
Nvr seen Malcolm.. he is very experienced? he is a manager over there too? so far, i only liaise with Francis..
My package doesnt come with the food voucher cos it's a weekday.. do u think can ask for it? Thanks.
