I had my ROM ceremony cum lunch in PEony jade on 5th Nov. I had 9 tables and i gotto choose the area near the satge. Really satisfy.. Their service is good, food is nice, i had many good comments from my guests. Would like to recommend this resturant to all of u..
hi faifai, i resend u the link liao..pls check ur email.
hi web, kjn is rite...they'll still allow walk-in customers if u din book min. 18 tables. but if u hv about 6-10tables, they can put ur tables around the stage area n draw up a curtain to separate u from the outsiders...so its still more or less private. my AD is on a weekday afternoon, there's not many public dinners in the restaurant during office hrs so it felt like i had the whole restaurant to myself
hi all, i will be booking my dinner with poeny jade most prob next year as my AD 2008 not ready for booking yet. aniway just ask you all about the bum boat thingy,anyone has any idea or have use it before?it can be arranged by peony jade.
I enquired from PJ before. That can be arranged by them but you need to pay for it. The last time I heard from them this year was $180 for a trip,ie the bride and groom just ride across the river by the boat to PJ. Hmm as for details, you can check with PJ contact person or their solemnisation package. It's in the package with additional costs.
May I know what kind of beer does PJ usually served?
When is the latest time to return the contract to them?
My friend's friend picked to arrive by the boat and it was pretty decorated by PJ. Ride was about 5 mins but the deco will take about 20mins by PJ. Therefore to think 5 mins costs $180 but will leave fond memories.
Renting of projector will cost $150, fyi if you like to know too.
To previous brides of PJ, may I know what kinds of red wine does PJ accept? I was told not all brands/types of wine will be accepted by PJ hence I am curious to know in details. Emailed to PJ but they havent replied me for ages.
thanks SB, will check it out with her then. guess the best is to get ourselves if possible.
per the agreement, they did say that they will want to know the names of the wines before they 'approve' you to bring them in cos they are afraid of people bringing in not so good wines (will probably lower their standards). ask for the names of the wines they use and do a check on it. if you are comfrortable, then can use theirs, alot less hassle.
Hi! I am also holding my dinner at PJ next yr. So far only paid deposit, haven sign contract yet. Normally how long will they ask us to go and sign? I also see from contract the rental is $150/-, initially i also thought is FREE. SIgnz! Anyone here had it free?
hi any ex PJ brides who had only 18 tables?
how do u arrange the tables seating?
who to place in front etc..
also how was the make up room?
is it spacious?how many ppl can squeeze into that room?
was photo taking with each table taking lot of time?
Hi Moon, normally Pauline won't hurry u to send the contract back to them (at least not mine). In fact I had it like 3-4 months b4 I called her again for some discussion before we send the hard copy down. Look thru ur contract first b4 u sign cos after sign cannot bargain anymore.
The projector is not free, mine also $150. Unless u got lobang.
Hi Panda, i also going to have abt 18 tables. If u have the table arrangement, can send me a copy pls. But wat I know is that they can have two 12-seats VIP table infront. and the rest are two by two along the aisle. It was spacious thought when I went there last time.
One thing I learned my coordinator is that if u have more tables, by the time the guests stand up to welcome u and ur hb, the chairs will be sightly blocking the aisle/ carpet. So u might not be walking together side by side with ur hb.
The makeup ur was spacious. How many pp u intend to squeeze in? as guests? they have a floor length mirror there too. Not too sure abt teh photo taking time, can be long and short. Provided ur hb have good brothers, they have to coordinate which table to go first and arrange the pp to sit together before ur two come. Time is est. 10-15 Sec to take only for abt 2 shots. But if u want to wait for the guest to sit together, then longer. 18 tables not that many, should have plenty of times.
BTW to all PJ brides, I also learned from my wedding planner that the projector from PJ is not fix on the ceiling, it's mobile. So they have to move it and arrange to show the guests (montage) before ur come in and quickly remove it away before ur march in. Can be abit "ruan" cos of the cabling.
Oh, Lunabride, that's the date i wanted initally. Hee, so got booked by u first. So I booked 28 (FRI) instead. coz i rem tt time other auspicious weekend date for me out except this. =) But u signed contract liao ah. that's fast! Hi, Lovelytulips, when's ur AD? Saw ur name in MBR's thread. I am also MBR, but haven participate in tt thread yet. =)
This thread is moving really quickly after only 2 weeks of not checking... Are you all sure about the wine thingy? If there is such a restriction on types to bring, then they should have mentioned it. Think it is a little crappy for such a clause to be in place.
Inititally they ask me to put a note or announce over the stage that the wine is provide by the couples itself, but came tat day, i think the PJ MC din announce too.
They are actually protecting their reputation incase couples bring in a lower grade wine and guest might be mistaken that wine is provided by PJ.
And for outside wines, the cockage is waive for me and i think its across the board.
For yr headcounts, there ought to be some cant turn up wan, yr headcounts have to minus by some % so i think end of the day, it might work out jus nice for u.
wow u got 255 guests. Initially i have about 220 too but thinking I don't want my guests to sit in the room and outside the lift, so I will limit to 180 only. But u will "earn" cos I think PJ will not charge 255 pp exact, think they go by table. Two VIP tables can site 12 pp but they only charge two tables, not three tables.
Hi Luna, u mean they are charging u corkage? U got intention to order wines outside PJ?
Base on 255 guests, they will charge ard 23 tables and you will still earn the $ from 2 tables.
There is a limited of heads free...
Hi gang... i don't think corkage is charged at all.. Think it's written in the pink slips on the perks... Just need to make sure that PJ don't say stupid things like this wine too cheap cannot serve stuff...
I placed my deposit about a month ago and so far have not heard of anything at all from the restaurant... really slow.. wonder why....?? A little unacceptable for being so slow to get back on the contract...
Mine is a sunday lunch too.. guess it's something different for most of my guests and relatives...
corkage charge is waive. it's also stated so in the contract. i have the clause that said that if i intend to bring own wine, need to let them know the name. as what pamela says and what some forumers here say, they are afraid that we will bring in cheap wine and lower the standards of the restaurant.
may also get the wine from them cos it's not so inconvenient and it's pretty reasonably priced. if anyone has tried their wine, please share with us.
hi kieran, i also booked abt 1 mth ago and has got my contract. understand that pauline will draft the contract depending on who booked first and whose dinner is earlier... maybe u wana give them a call?
So we dont have to reply Pauline on the contract early yah?
I am still contemplating on bringing own wine in cos as far as I know I could choose red wine of equal quality to those served by PJ but at lower price. However, saw from one of the previous thread that they might reject the wine brought in (regardless of informing them the brand/type of wine to bring in b4 the bqn starts).
