hi.. may i know how much you paid for the wedding banquet at OH? I am holding my soleminsation at OH. See so much good comment about them, I am thinking to hold my AD banquet at OH too. haha.. i need some references... how much is per table and etc..
Would like to share with you on the bridal show coming up in March. I saw this ad on DBS website that Rasa Sentosa Resort, Shangri-la has a bridal show on 09 March. Below is the link. You guys might be interested.
hi attended the wedding fair that the copthorne group of hotels had yesterday... orchard hotel looked pretty good, and the package and perks looked very good as well... but one concern we had was how much people would give for orchard hotel? can anyone share their experience on how much hong paos they received, on average? cos we're deciding between this and grand copthorne... and usually people will give different amounts for diff hotels right? so just wondering how much people would give for Orchard Hotel... please advise? thanks!!
hihi, i had my wedding at OH last yr nov07. received angbao range from $68 to $188per pax. Mostly $100. Actually depend on ur guest grp. I realise most older generation people give below mrkt rate, perhaps they dunno the current market rate while friends ard our age, more or less know the rate to give, not to earn but at least to cover e table.
I'm also keen in engaging OC as my wedding venue. The coordinator, Annie just called me and invite me and my hubby to their wedding show tied up with Her World's Brides on the 27th April. She attached a copy of wedding pkgs for 2009 and it was quite comprehensive! If u are keen, I can send u the email.
Actually I enquired for this date before leh. Bt they charge very very high for special dates so my hubby says its not practical and moreover we dunno if 20/09/2009 suits our 8 characters. I planned to hold my wedding in Sept 2009 but haven confirm the date coz my MIL very particular about auspicious dates. Now still waiting for her to come back with the ideal dates. I quite keen to book OC coz the ballroom is pillarless and I love long aisle!!!
If u wanna book for wedding lunch, tink its slightly cheaper. Why dun wanna consider dinner?
Annie from OH just emailed mi telling mi about the hourly rebate discounts on the wedding show. And guess wat she says? She says can give 7% off total bill if I confirm with her tt dat day irregardless of which hour!
I calculated liao and I tink its very worth it coz i'm looking at weekday pkg. Not exactly keen on weekend pkg coz my relatives are mostly working on weekends.
Thanks for the mail! I've been to Furama Riverfront a few times for wedding dinner and I must say their food is gd and also impressed by their spacious and pillarless ballroom. They have very nice and romantic crystal theme and the yam paste for dessert certainly goes well with stomachs which are not fully satisfied after the main dishes. Always savoured 2 bowls of yam paste as it is simply divine.
As for Regent, I haven been there before. Will wait for ur updates.
Yeah we may bump into each other at Le Meridien tml. Wonder if we would be the lucky ones to secure the banquet pkg at 12%!
Glad OH is on top of ur list.
I've sign up wif OH to hold my dinner next year. Elleen was very helpful and friendly. And I like the ballroom too. Pillarless.
My worry is that there will be another dinner that day and my guests may not know which ballroom to go, since their ballrooms are on same floor...
Hi Hi...Juz back from my stay at Conrad Hotel...hehehe...
I have went to Regent Hotel...the banqnet manager (Joanna) shows us the wedding theme...and guess wat...my FH and me juz fall in love with all the theme...they are very very beautiful!!!
Saturday, I have went to my FH's company D&D at Orchard Hotel...and the ballroom is indeed very big and pillarless...but all the ballroom are on the same level, so I might afraid if there are more than 2 funtion going on the same time, our guest might be confuse...the ballrooms are located at level 3 ( I think should have ard 5 ballroom on the same level!), and the food at Orchard Hotel not bad....
Oh no!!!! Now I was like caught in between...dunno who to sign with!!!
I've sent the pkg to ur mail. Just to update tt I've already signed my pkg with Le Meridien as the perks they give during the bridal show was simply too attractive to resist! I've got a very reasonable pkg but at the same time, felt sad tt I will not be attending the bridal show for OH coz I already book my pkg liao.
Tink perks offered during wedding show is the most reasonable. I believe the perks given by OH during the wedding show is attractive enough to stir ur temptation. If u are reli interested in booking OH, u shld make ur decision fast so tt u can sign on the spot at the show to avoid future disappointment.
Hmm...I already ROM-ed in year 2006 leh. We had an outdoor solemnization at Fullerton Waterboat House and its like an alfresco party. The place is reli reli reli beautiful and very windy!!! My pics were all Esplanade and Merlion and Fullerton and all my guests were enjoying the breeze and listening to soft music in the evening. Had a very romantic affair and I believe not many pple knows that Fullerton Waterboat House holds wedding solemnization!
My AD is 20/09/2009. Managed to secure Le Meridien for this special date coz me and my hubby reli want our frenz and relatives to remember our wedding. Luckily it was not taken up yet and we happily nook the banquet. Was considering OH initially but afraid they may be already booked for this date so in the end, we signed with Meridien without much consideration.
Heng I nv book with OH if not we'll be vieing for the 20/09/2009 slot if u evetually choose OH over Regent! If u wan 20/09/2009, u MUST secure now. Heard from a shifu tt this day clashes with DOG so I'm abit worried now as my hubby is a DOG. We'll probably ask him to give us some amulets or perform some simple rites to help my hubby ward off evil.
Regent quite ex wor...U still going for the OH wedding show?
Yes lor...so funny, in the end we never choose OH...hahaha...I will not be going down to OH liao, since we have decide on Regent...
Ya...Regent is on the higher side, but we really like the ambience very much, and it happen once i a life time, so juz heart pain pain do it lor...hehehe...go down this Sat to pay deposit...
OIC...so gd tat there is way to prevent it, but don't keep on thinking this too much, as this might affect your mood...muz b happy, think positive....must enjoz the whole procedure of wedding preparation....
Ya I oredi signed up with Jazreel Collection. They tied up with Le Meridien during the wedding show and we won the 2nd prize during the lucky draw so we used the vouchers to exchange for more photos and other stuffs in the bridal pkg. I used my MTM evening gown for exchange and we saved alot on tt so we decided to take the pkg as it deems to be more reasonable. Else, we'll be wasting the voucher for nuttin.
Actually during the planning of the whole wedding, me and my hubby's main concern is to cut down unwanted costs as much as we can. In the end, we reli won the lucky draw and saved at least 1K on the BS pkg. And we're quite happy now. Except tt we dunno if we can "siam" the clashes on the wedding day itself.
Did Regent charge u extra per table for 20/09/2009? Is this date suitable for u and ur partner? Is it a good day for marriage?
T dragon, where we get the free invitation cards from (given by orchard hotel) provides map too. about 10cents for a small piece. BUT...... they map is wrong!!! Thai embassy and orchard tower swapped location in map. wonder if will cause more confusions to guest not.
Aiya BS can take ur time to see around and do ur homework first. At least must set aside 4K for BS pkg coz nowadays they increase the price like mad! I signed with jazreel but read from forum tt their service not very gd. I'm beginning to worry but so far the service I recv is still very warm and helpful. (Bt u will nv know in future) I will be going down next Sat to try out gowns and view their portfolios. Maybe I can update u again if u are interested.
hi anyone who had their banquet dinner at orchard hotel also order Muslim and Indian Vegetarian food before? would like to know if it taste nice or not. i have to invite some malays and indian vegetarins to my wedding. to cut down the $$$ loss of the tables, my friend advise that i can put 11 ppl (e.g. 10 chinese n 1 malay) to a table (think i have to ask them give me some 6ft table), but the problem is they come in a couple (hubby plus wife)....so can't help much in cutting down the $$$ loss....
