Hi Dilemma - Yes, I have booked mine with Flamingo. Who are you booked with?
I like the gold and white theme too...thinking to have a gold EG... On one hand, I thought it can match well with the whole theme, but on the other hand, if your EG and table cloth (for the host tables) the same colour, a bit funny right?? What you think huh?
I had booked my dinner for 14sep last year March..haha..very KS hor.. but we jus happened to drop by a wedding exhibition and we were attracted by the free flow of beer tingy..hehe.. I have abt 30 tables, dun know very cramped or not?...
I had my dinner at CC with 30 tables. I must say that it's quite cramped. I had to squeeze my way around those tables. I also "shrunk" the size of my stage to create more space so there was no space for champagne pouring and cake-cutting. But it was alrite with us coz we didn't want any of these.
I am with Christain Creation for my wedding package. Heard of it? it is at tanjong pagar..Ai..heard alot of adverse comments abt its service from the forum..abit sian..me haven go for my first appointm yet. Have u??? which boutique are u with?
Oh no...no champagne pouring and cake-cutting ah...my silly hubby wanted 32 tables somemore..2 for reserve..I can imagine u sqeezing your way past the tables..very sian hor..tink i got to pyscho him to reduce the no of tables..its his side lor..got 22 tables..me no problem one.
I wasn't too keen on the champagne and cake so the lack of space was a good reason to do away with that. Despite it being cramped, I find CC nice and cosy (altho a fren commented that the ceiling is abit low) and the bridal suite is quite spacious. Feedback on food is good... that's most impt!
I m so happy to hear that the feedback on food is good cos most of the time those five star hotel the food sucks although it cost 800-900+++ per table. yah lor...i oso find it quite nice and cosy. thanks so much for sharing lei...even though your wedding over but u still drop by the forum. so nicee of u!
Me too lei..blurblur..I had alot of advice from the gals in the forum though..the brides which had signed up with my bridal boutique. all very nicee people.
I am going for first fitting on 28feb..prob try to get one off the rack then get extra photos. hehe.. photoshoot perhaps end of May. If you wan to MTM your WG and EG better go early yeh. and remember to bring your bridal shoes for your fitting hor.
I still abit headache abt the tables cos my hubby like insist wan 30 tables. I was thinking of 28 tables will be good and not too cramped. I very scared his side messy cos he got 22tables..tink i probably will stay in the bridal suite till it's time for march in then I wont see the confusion. I already arrowed my elder brother to co-ordinate..hehehe..
Glad to find this thread and know the general good feedbacks on CC. I personally like the atmosphere and decor in OPH, simple without being over-elaborate.
I've also booked a package in Sept this year. We managed to neg for free-flow beer and waiver of wine corkage, provided that we have min 25 tables and go for the deluxe menu.
We chose CC mainly because my fiance has a very good impression of the food there. Also most feedbacks from friends on the food are very positive. After attending over 30 wedding banquets in S'pore, I've found that hotel food generally tastes "plastic" and functional. My only positive experience was of Charming Garden (another Tunglok) at Orchid Copthorne in Dunearn Road, where they served really great stuff. Although the place was really cramped, I really enjoyed the dinner. :0)
Perhaps u bring a pair of heels with the height u probably want to your first fitting..3,4 or 5 inches? then hor, after your first fit then u can start looking for the shoes liao. me very KS...already bought a pair of heels..off white one with abit of glitters. 3-inch.. i bought at metro marina..not very ex. but u can get better ones elsewhere too..but abit more pricey.
Anyone here has booked a weekday package? i've booked tunglok restaurant but am considering of changing to club chinois. Can anyone provide me with info on the menus and the prices? I've went to the tunglok website but they don't have the menu there. It just states that the cheapest package is $540++. Is this true?
Yes, that's true for a weekday package. You may wish to contact Eric who is the banquet manager to go through the package and see the venue and most importantly to check if the date u are looking at is still available at CC.
Nice to meet all of you! I oso signed up wif CC for my wedding in July! I oso went through this 'fish' problem with my hubby. Altho I have to admit it is a cheaper fish, but to change fish costs between $35-$50 per table extra. Furthermore, my favourite fish is sea bass, so no prob! hee hee....
Oh yes, when are ur wedding dates? Do you get to choose the flowers n deco? I think they do not do up our names on the backdrop anymore rt?
Seabass is quite common in wedding dinners. Personally, I wouldn't pay extra for different type of fish lor. My PILs also wanted us to change the fish cos they say it's "cheap" type lor but it's extra cost for us and we won't know if we can break-even for the dinner. If want expensive fish, it would be promfrets. Anyway, the seabass served during my wedding was quite good. All my guests enjoyed it. Hope this helps.
OPH has 2-3 themes rite? You can choose from those themes and inform Eric on the type of flowers that you want. Certain flowers may incur extra cost.
The themes would include the colour of the tablecloths, backdrops and flowers. I think they have a silver-blue theme; red and gold theme; and 1 more which I can't remember...Eric has some fotos for you to choose from. Dun worry about it. You can select these themes about 2 weeks before your wedding.
Can't really remember if it's 2 or 3 themes.
. I changed my table cloth to gold cos my EG was fuschia pink. I didnt want to look like a tablecloth. Backdrop also gold. So, in the end, the colours in the ballroom were white, gold and green. Effect turned out well.
My wedding's on 21st June. Can i join in to share some ideas?
I've just printed the cards and now I m thinking of which theme? Eric told me that i can hv white/gold theme. Still green table cloth as the base. There's roses, lilies and gerberas. Which one is nice? I still hv not chosen yet.
I was thinking of white roses 2 but not lilies cos my nose's quite sensitive to the smell. I prefer white 2. Thinking of mixing white with red/pink roses. Think will look quite nice.
No, they did not offer me any thing due to SARS. Maybe b'cos I hv not spoken to him abt it. Mine is still quite a distance away compared to yrs so I still hv time. U intending to postpone or something?
The cards is based on the no. of tables confirmed only, excl. reserved tables. The no. of tables confirmed is the no. that they will be charging you at the end of the banquet. Reserves will only be charged if you 'open' them.
Don't intend to do food tasting. I ate there a few times so quite confident about the quality of the food.
hi meekoo, i hv checked before with CC. They can only provide the screen but not the projector. Need to rent it yourself. If you have not found your actual day photographer, you may want to consider Albert Chua, Everafter as he provides projector rental free.
