<font color="119911">hi brink_79,

my 1st choice was rasa sentosa. then my parents objected coz feel the location too inaccessible. so i decided to get a hotel more centralised. MM offers the best perks (p/s: you can try to bargain for more) but not able to offer me date. then i went back to rasa again. my fh managed to convince my parents and we even rented a car to bring my mum down to view the place. finally she relented and i am able to hold my wedding there.

in short, rasa sentosa. yipee!!

Hi Ladies,

I just booked my banquet with MM.
Following are perks they offer:
-free flow beer
-complimentary 1 bottle of wine per table
-subsequent bottles at $18+++ (think this is cheaper then buying our own wine plus corkage at other hotels)
-FOC printing of wedding cards for 100% confirmed attendance
-2 nite's stay at bridal suite (with breakfast)
-Top of the M dinner vouchers
-Pre-dinner or post-dinner snack
-1 bottle of champagne, a cake and chocolates at the hotel room
-1 bottle of champagne for ceremony
-Complimentary parking for 20%

Mine's a thu package at 638+++. Unfortunately I deleted the email of the package.
This is all I remember.

Hi all,

I just had my food tasting at MM last week, the dishes are nice except for the steam fish and rice in lotus leaf. Other than that, our families are quite happy with the food, portion and service of our captain

Hi taz tt,

It depends on what you are looking for. For us, we choose MM becos of the perks and the price.

We took the weekday package which is only 638+++. And if you look through the thread, I've listed down some of the perks they offered and I think its quite reasonable for the price that we are paying.

You mean Ritz Calton? It's really too ex...per table diff is 100-200.

As for Pan Pac, perks not as good as MM, though price is about the same.

This is what I think. Feel free to comment

Hi starry,

Which date in Oct06? I'm looking at MM too. Your package look attractive. Is it a weekday package? I need abt 60 tables, but hope to cut my guest to 50 tables. What kinda additional perks can I request others than those in the stad package they have given?

Hi taz_tt,

I've not tried the food there. Unfortunately the chinese restaurant is closed for renovations. But I gathered from this thread that the food seems ok....and you are right, we can't have the best of both worlds. For me, as long as the food is not horrible, it is fine.

Hi Blue Ginger,

My AD is 19Oct. The package should be quite standard. But I think you can give them a call and tell them you have 50 tables. They may give you more perks.
For me, the quote states for 250-350pax package. Maybe with 500pax would be another package.

Hi Rachel,

MY AD is on 22 Dec, just 3 weeks away!
happy.gif

I had my food tasting about 2 weeks ago, we called up our coordinator to book appointment.
They recommend couples to have the food tasting session latest 1 month before the wedding banquet, so you still have some time to go
happy.gif
Anyway the chinese restaurant is under renovation, I had my food tasting at Belvedere II just next to the MC ballroom, where my dinner will be held.
Hope this helps

loulou,
I'm gg food tasting next week.
Any recommendations for which dish?
Who is your co-ordinator? I saw the white seat covers... the whole concept is very plain. Any idea if we can change the seat covers to other colours?

Hi AXL,

Mine is the weekday menu. All of us thought that the fish was over-steamed and the lotus rice was not fragrant enough. Other than that, the dishes are OK. My personal favourite is the prawn stir fried with celery

My co-ordinator is Adeline, very nice lady. As far as I know, they only have white seat covers.
I know they have some new table cloth designs for the VIP tables, you can check it out with your co-ordinator.

Hi Rachel,

My AD is in Oct06. Heard it's a new package. Yar, I agree it's quite attractive. In fact the most attractive that I've seen after getting many many different quotes from different hotels

Hi Starry,
See u here in this thread. ME also a MM bride, also Oct 06. On 17th, weekday too. My pkg is same as yours and Christopher the co-ordinator informed that next year, they will change all seat cover and new wedding favours. Their current seat covers are ugly (looks like french caps!)

As for the wedding cards, we can choose from the 100s of designs available at the printing co.

cheers!

Hi Honey Chia,

Oh...mine's 2 days after you.
Agree on the seat cover, looks a bit weird right? Glad they are changing it.

Heard about the change of wedding favours too. And I think they are also changing the ballroom decors.
