I hav actually booked the wedding banquets fr CC too (not under promotn). Like to chk if anyone has chosen the $600 menu?? How's the food like? Understand that the last dish is also deserts. Wanna to change but learnt fr Eric that he'll charge additional $30-$50 per dish...too ex.
hi summer, i hv choosen the same menu as you. my food tasting will only be in early May. i never try CC food b4 but just heard from many pp that it is very gd, will get to know how true is it..I will let u know how is it. when's yr wedding?
hi meekoo, i agree very expensive..that's why wanted to drop off the idea of having the montage, until i found Albert Chua, Everafter.
hi meekoo, yah, he will do the actual day photography, do the montage and also provide you the projector...If yr bridal pkg already includes the photography, then I guess it will be better to stick with the pkg, in order not to incur extra costs...
hi meekoo, albert's pkg is S$1600. You can see some of his works and pkg price from his website i.e. http://www.everafter.com.sg. BTW, my wedding day is one day after Abrinas i.e. 22 June 2003. When's yours?
Let's me know how's the food like when u go for food tasting...thanks!!
My wedding is in Nov. My cousin's wedding banquet used to be in CC too. I liked their food and also booked it. What i worry is that most chinese banquet is 9 dishes but the $600 package is 8 dishes2 are deserts, dunno can calculate tis way). And u know, some ppl will leave b4 the deserts are served. But it's ex to change dishes..Eric also discouraged it.
hi summer, i see..my pkg has a total of 9 dishes, becos i hv booked long time ago. i think now, many restaurants and hotels are changing to 8 course and the last course is always dessert and is considered as 1 dish.
hi meekoo, so your wedding is earlier than mine.. i wld thot so..usually they wont deduct the actual value one.. never mind lor, at least can save some $ also.
my preparation is ok. think you are more busy than I am hor? going for my PS this coming Mon!
I booked on tis year. Actually, it was very rushing as most of our prefered resturants were already booked and for CC, the previous couple gave up their booking and Eric asked were we still interested.
My last two dishes are Qing tang and petite four (dunno spell correctly or not). Understood from Eric that both are deserts..So, a bit sian. Wanna to change but too ex...Maybe will decide after food tasting loh.
Remember to bring ur contract along with you on ur wedd day coz CC dun allow you to settle ur dinner the next day - must settle immediately after the dinner... in case there's any conflict regarding beer, parking coupons, etc, you've ur contract with you.
Enjoy ur wedding...I had mine at CC too - I also used the white theme.
Like to check with u, how many types of themes does CC offer? Also, the colour of table clothes?? Cos i wanna to choose a light yellow color evening gown for my wed but afraid that it "crash" wif the table clothes. Thanks!!
Also, does anyone choose the same menu as i?? Like to hear the comments.
I am also thinking of cc. But I missed the bridal show over at Laguna. Was just wondering can anyone give me a few advice on cc? How the food? Can request for free flow of beer and corkage charges? Thanks!
i had my wedding at cc. the food was excellent. Everyone who attended my wedding commented that the food is delicious, special (different frm other dinner) and sharks fin was good. last but not least abt the food was there's not much msg, its quite blend.
for free flow of beer and corkage waiver, u hv to speak to Eric for such arrangement.
Their service was prompt except one of my guests commented that when she requested for wine, she was told that they ran out of wine, which cnt be cos i had left over. when i checked with cc, seems that the waiter/ress deny such happens.
there are other types of cards for selection right? we used focal ad also, but we took another design which is not from the range CC provided, its not too expensive, cos we are entitled to deduct $0.50per card if we dont want to use those by CC.. worked out to be slightly less than $200 for 260 cards. H/w we didn print the map on card, use their standard map which is separately printed on ivory squarish paper.
you can ask Gina abt it, she's the one whom i liaise with from focal ad. The other cards are mostly more than $1 per piece.. mine was a very simple one with names in front and 1 wedding pic inside card... it was a longish card that fit into those long envelopes. As we print direct on the card, we didnt have any insert that need additional gold string to tie with.. thus maybe cost less..
Hi gals, I am about to sign up with cc. But was just wondering did any of you sign up for the $600 package. There was one last dish that goes something like petite four........anyone got idea what is it? It is a sweet or tea? Please advice. Thanks!
I've just gone down to CC two days ago to view the ballroom. It's the first hotel that I've looked at so far, haven't seen other hotels yet. Realised that the ballroom ceiling is pretty low and gave a claustrophobic feeling. Is it just me or are most ballrooms' ceilings this low?
Am on some kind of budget, $650 nett max. for weekend wedding. Seems like only CC fits my budget. Would greatly appreciate if anyone of you out there can make some recommendations.
I agree with mngo. The service is gd and food is fantastic and creative! I must also say that Kelvin and his staff are very professional and my coordinators have no problem working with them. Though the ceiling is low, I feel that the ballroom is cosy. Of course, other hotels have higher ceiling, but also charged more expensive.
Just went down to OPH to check out the ballroom and package again. I agree with eileen10 that the place looks cozy even if the ceiling is not that high. However, find that the ballroom will be quite cramped if there were more than 30 tables. Anyone had any experience?
Am still scouting around for good package however judging from the good comments given, OPH will be the preferred choice. Anyone knows how much to top up if we change the dessert (Ching Teng to Pudding) ? Kindly share if you have any knowledge. Thanks in advance!
