Yep Bugbear,
I did my montage with Cindy from Wedding Favorites. She has done a good job, other gals who did theirs with Cindy also complimented her. I did mine for $68 coz during promotion, now her px is $88. Think the px is stil cheaper than the market, she will give 2 nice done DVDs loh. Let me know if you want her contact ...

Hey Rachel, I am also doing lunch. You added a dish? and I was going to cancel some so I can serve wedding cake!! Worried that people get too full by last dish! hehe.

Hey I am looking for deals for cheap secondary photographer. I don't mind using those from photography clubs. Can pass me some contacts? The average I am thinking of spending is about $600. Of course lesser better lah. I don't even need prints so that should bring down the cost alot more right?

hi shyen,
patrina is my coordinator and she has been helpful and accommodating so far. i dunno if we can pick and choose our coordinators but what i do know is that regent does offer some sorta promotion during workshops. i'd posted a little smthg regent offered in their recent miracles workshop. you can read it in the archives, dated 3 Oct. hope that's helpful.

hi lala,
88 bucks for a video montage doesnt sound too bad at all.
happy.gif
can i have cindy's contact please? and does she have samples of her works to show via the web or do i need to swing by her studio?

hey fynn,
there wasnt any talk of lucky draws at the workshop. took a look at the style mag ad again and i'm still scratching my head over it. guess you've gotta get your own cake. yx passed me some old mags and one's got quite a bit of write-ups on wedding cakes. lemme know if you're interested yah?

Hi Lala...can PM me the contact details for montage?? $88 is still quite good deal right? THanks.

Bee>> thanks for the offer but I have my heart set on the cake I saw on Martha Stewart magazine! I mentioned before fiance and I like a chocolate cake from Regent and we want to make THAT our wedding cake!

Rachel>> Regent has a policy about food so u can only use their in house bakery. I LOVE the cakes there!! Its a reasonable price given that hotels usually charge a HUGE premium for the extras. The cake is 55+++ per kg. So if you are looking at 100 guest, its about 5-6 KG. I personally don't mind paying for the cake because I feel that its money well spent
happy.gif
I love chocolate!!! I didn't negotiate on the swapping of the wedding cake but maybe you could try.

Hiyo. Today I found out from my fiance that he hasn't confirmed with the photographer yet! I was out of the country and he was apparently waiting for me to get back! Then I got emails for them asking if we were still interested coz they had another couple who is asking for services on the same day! *dope* So now I dunno how. We are spending a considerable fortune on the principal photographer because we felt that the Actual Day is something that we cannot recreate so we would like some good pictures to hang on the wall while we grow old... then no choice have to budget for secondary photographer...

Bugbear, busybee and iluydia,

Hi bugbear,
no worries
happy.gif
I didn't engage videographer coz broke liao ... we have friends to video for us.

Think should be cheaper if get the same person to do photography and videoing.

thank you, lala!

does cindy have samples to show via the web?
am pretty busy now, so i won't be able to drop by her studio anytime soon leh....

busybee,
me not sure leh, why not you give her a ring. Actually she can drop by your place to show you. Many times, she dropped by my place to take my pics, cds, etc.

bugbear,
same same, I was also on budget constraint thus asked friends to video instead
happy.gif
Okie lah, I am also happy with it

heheh...yah lor...i think some things can save, will save lor. Lala, did any of ur guests mentioned that the pillar actually blocked their view of the stage? How's the food and service?
 

tealeaf

New Member
hi bugbear,
I had only 28 tables thus the pillars do not affect at all. The food was good but find the portion a bit small though. No complaints on the service. There was 1 waiter to a table, thus the guests were well taken care of. Some hotels have 2 waiters to 3 tables or 1 to 2 tables instead.

lala, did u ask for baby chairs???me old bride so alot of frens have bb liao le...
me oso having ard 25 tables n i dun think will be blocked...
lala, may i noe whr u print ur cards? how's the rate like?
paiseh ah, me now gotto do all these stuff liao loh

Hi Jan Snow,
I didn't ask but somehow I have seen some of the kids in baby chairs. Think the hotel has set aside some.

I forgot the shop which we printed the cards but it is the only one recommended by Regent. Also, forgot the ps liao ... sorry ... All I know is that the rate is not expensive when compared with the industry ... you can check with Sunil.

Hey, you are Jen's neighbour ah ??
 

bugbear

New Member
Thanks Lala...as i am estimating ard 46 tables...hence i believe at least a few tables will be blocked by the pillars
sad.gif


Good to hear that the food is good...but portion is small ar...maybe i can ask Sunil see if they can help do something abt the portion :p

Jan_Snow...if u confirm that ur guest will bring bb, maybe u can pre-arrange to have bb chairs setup at that table...so they can actually arrange the table setting nicely...rather than when they arrive, then waiters help to ring the bb chairs, etc. not so messy.

hi lala n bugbear, kumsia

Jen???u mean D.O.G in this forum?my oni neighbour is D.O.G, not jen le? We staying 1 flr different oni, same unit somemore...haha

bugbear, think 46 is abt their maximum liao so i think maybe 2 tables might be block...
 

bugbear

New Member
huh?? 46 is max already? I tot is 50max leh...ah yo...then i have to reconsider...cos 46 is kind of my confirmed...that means i don have much space for reserves already
sad.gif
yah lor...at least 2 will be blocked totally leh...

Bug Bear, what I am doing is to split the tables. Thats why I am having one dinner and one lunch
happy.gif
You can think about doing that also
happy.gif
 

bugbear

New Member
hhmm...no lah...don reckon i will do that...but thanks! either i forgo that 2-3 tables...or i change ballroom
sad.gif
just added 1 more headache to my list..hehhe
 

jan_snow

New Member
bugbear, dun b mistaken. I meant close to their max. I remember max is 50 too...so i guess maybe 2 will be block lor. Better reconfirm wif them la....
 

bugbear

New Member
heheh...ok...will do so. bt dunno if i fit 46 will be too cramped or not...cos i feel that MC ballroom looks bigger than regent...and i have seen MC put 50tables and already looked a little cramped...maybe it's just perception...

hey girls, if the average lifespan of modern man/women is about 80 years old (and women live longer than men!) then even if we are 40 year old, we are only half way through our lives! so 30 year old? we are still young ar!
