hi ladies

i just had my wedding dinner at MM grandballroom 2 weeks ago. although it clashes with the IT fair (serious parking problem), but MM settle it well for us, and the banquet manager (namecard is at home, so i forgot his name)that i had is terrific. everything goes smoothly, no guest complain at all and i am glad that i have chosen MM for my wedding

The minimum tables for grand ballroom is 40 for weekends. Has anyone managed to negotiate for lower than 40 tables? Sigh... I am expecting about 35 tables on a Sat night.

Thanks, Evy... think i may have to give MM a miss... =( coz they seem quite stringent on that when i talked to them. A bit stressed to meet minimum tables if last min the guests list shrink.

Hi Corrine - the grand ballroom can hold 60, if only put 35 tables, might look empty.

Hi Purrine,so you getting the grand ballroom or vanda for lunch?

I am still considering, but i consider the perks quite good during the wedding show.

Hi Felicia,

We went for MM wedding show last yr. The food was pretty good. We thought its quite tasty compared to several other places. You might want to go to their wedding for food tasting.

Hi Lovie, is yours also a lunch?

Hi Purine, i thought lunch at grandballroom level 1 min is 30tables?

Actually i tasted the duck with the pancake, it taste very very very good! In fact, i think much better than the chicken. I thinking to change my chicken to duck instead.

chocolate - Mine was a dinner at Level 1. I occupy the whole ballroom as i had 50 tables. On my wedding day, i given given privileges coz i'm the ONLY wedding couple on that day and my guest have no problems knowing the way around!
happy.gif

The duck with pancake was good but the only thing is that for some parts (near the backside) it will smells and for those unlucky ones like me! Happens to have that! For my food testing, me and my hubby teste the stinky part whereas my relatives taste all the good ones.. Wahahahahah..
But trust me, besides that, MM is still good!

Hi there, I practically have read through all the archives already; mine is in Vanda ballroom end of this year.

Would like to know if anyone has asked if MM has those mega VIP table?? I'm not a mummy's girl but I really much much prefer sitting with my parents and siblings than with his family. Feel so much more at ease and myself. Hence to be fair, would like to fnd out if tere is one such table?

If not, anyone able to advise whether I can spilt half half for the 2 VIP table? as in, 1st VIP table made up of both sides parents and 2 other "calefare" from each side. The 2nd VIP table seats all our siblings and their partner etc? Has nyone attempted this?

Hi Raywen,

You might want to check with the MM coordinators about the availability of the Mega vip table. The usual custom is for the new couple to sit with the groom side as it symbolises the acceptance of the new family addition.

And usually for the dinner, the couple hardly get to sit down. Think only for the 1st 2 dishes, then we got to change into the 2nd gown and 2nd walk-in. After the 2nd walk-in, its picture time. Then follow by having the last dessert and standing-by for goodbye handshake.

Just to share, I had my rom last yr at another hotel with the round table setting. I had 2 vip table where I sat with my hubby's family. I personally think that its a better arrangement than to make the 2 families sit together as each family will feel more comfortable if eating with own members, can crack some personal jokes within themselves. And also coupled with the fact that the couple is usually not at the table, I think I would prefer my parents and siblings to feel at ease and joyful throughout the dinner.

These are just my personal thoughts and preference. You might want to think about them.
