from his email, it seems like our event will be handled by Agnes Tan, Senior Catering Sales Manager. he also mentioned dat she will be in touch with us soon. have never met/spoke to her b4 so hopefully she is good lor. jenn is your coordinator rite if i remembered correctly....when is she going on maternity leave? u know who will be covering for her?
actually i spoke to sharul last week and he didnt even mention to me....i even told him that i will check wif fh to see when we r going down to discuss the decor, invites etc with him. haiz...
Any one has any idea on the deco you will be using for the ballroom? ie, the colour themes etc.....really no idea leh.
Sharul leaving???? What do you all think about Jenn's sevice? So far she is cool i think.
I'm back! Our wedding is over and it was beautiful! To quote Sharul, there's really magic in the walls of Raffles.
Anyhow, I was one of the couples affected by Sharul's departure. In fact, extremely affected. Our wedding was 18 June, just 2 days after his last day on the 16th. And we only knew of his departure on the afternoon of 12th June. But everything was well-managed. Our portfolio was handed over to the Director of catering, Hon. We met up with her on the 16th to run through together in detail our requirements that we had earlier communicated to Sharul. Although, it did take up some precious time, that session helped reassured us that we were in good hands.
The banquet that night was a success – with gorgeous décor, great food (we served cod fish which tasted wonderful even when it was re-heated for our supper), and impeccable service. It was everything that we expected of a wedding at Raffles and more! Will share with everyone our photos when they are ready.
Meanwhile, here's a photo of our wedding cake from Raffles taken at the dining table in the suite:
To all the brides-to-be, trust Raffles to do a great job for your event and savor every moment of it!
Cookies Gal - Congratulations, u are now Mrs Cookies Gal? hehe... Really happy to hear that you have enjoy your wedding at Raffles. I'm sure they will do a great job for the rest as well. I was surprised tt u only know of Sharul's resignation so last minute, I thought they should at least tell you in advance to get you prepared. But anyway, good that they assured u are in good hands and proved it with the fabulous wedding you've got at Raffles.
Congratulations! glad to hear from another satisfied raffles bride....had alot of relatives and frenz commenting y we go with raffles cos their food is nothing great...just ok standard. aniwae, we'll be going for our food tasting next month and looking forward to our weding. oh, remember to show us your pics when u got the time to upload it, kaez?
Cookies Gal - Yeah, how was the comments on the food huh? Some said the portion very small right?
Starmoon - I think every hotel food all same standard leh, so far, I think Pan Pac managed to satisfy my picky husband. All the food served at the other hotels banquet really sucks. Think that's the sacrifice we have to make for the ambience. Actually dun understand why hotels can't serve nicer food.
actually conrad has very good food and so does Grand Copthorne....in fact my MIL loves it so much she kept the food menu (cos she dunno english) and show it to me when we were looking around for banquet. but the min. requirement is 38 tables so we didnt take it as we r only inviting a small no. of ppl. tell u something hor, actually we went around and wanted to get conrad after comparing as we love the ambience there and they got very good review on food...but of course the bridal suite not as nice as Raffles lah. in the end,we chose raffles cos the dates we wanted all gone. recently, my bro went to his fren's wedding at hyatt and he commented that the food is very nice and ask me y dun go hyatt...told him i pay deposit liao and will ganna confiscate and he said pity cos food very nice.
We received excellent reviews for the dinner that night. We actually had some fussy guests who specifically mentioned that the food that night was excellent. Just FYI, my in-laws' are Cantonese who are known to be quite particular about food!
We heard that the shark's fins had generous servings of shark's fins and that the steam cod fish was superb. Cod fish is a very unique item on their menu - hardly any hotel serves cod fish in the first place and it takes a really good chef to pull it off steamed. In fact, once hubby saw cod fish on the menu, Raffles it was for us. The roast chicken was also another hit.
So, don't worry. With Raffles, you do not sacrifice the taste for ambience at all! If you still have any doubts with respect to food, do voice them to your coordinator.
We had the Jubilee buffet menu. Most of my friends said the food was great. But my family (super cheena ones who are very particular about food) and relatives said the chinese items in the buffet menu is horrible. And many of them complained. But we already expected that kind of response from my side of family, so it didn't bother us too much.
Unfortunately, we ourselves did not manage to taste the food at all. They did get two plates of food for us and left it at our seats during the dinner but we were busy talking to guests and did not have a single bite. Even though we requested for food to be served to our room after the dinner, they didn't bring it to us.
Never mind... it was quite a beautiful wedding. ;p
