Hi Fang,

I don't think your band will clash with the lounge band with the doors closed of coz.

I didn't see any band playing on my day. I went to the lounge twice to get ready for my march in. Don't worry, it will be great to have a band of your own.

Hi Fang,

sorry for the late reply as I was not accessing this website during the weekend. Nope, I was not going to Rasa the last weekend, I went to book my bridal during the weekend. Yup... don't worry too much and never think whether it is a right or wrong choice, trust the decision that both of you have made and it will definitely turn out to be fine.(well sounds like easy to say than done right???) and my hubby keep telling me to look on positive side of it. So you went down to Rasa last weekend? how is the wedding?

Flyn, I have the same worry as fang regarding on the band playing outside the lounge area... well I intend to ask my coordinator again the next time I meet up with him and I will let all of you know again...

oops... I overlook on the rain problem !! huh... no shelter (have not been to the parade sq before, intend to take a look the next time) "chiam lah" it will be a wet sesson in Nov period...

Bobomagic, I went to book my bridal package with Bridal zone liao... my coordinator is Grace, any comments about her?

hey guys!!

i went to the food tasting yesterday and the food was surprising good and yummy! :p
I chosen my food all from Menu A for the weekday package and i lurrve the prawns with chinese wine and roasted chicken. our parents were all pleased with the food and the chef actually came down and got feedback from us. He ensured us that on the actual day the food will be of the same quality and quantity as we thought that yesterday the fish was especially fresh and the prawns were especially big and juicy. hehee..

oh and I saw the ballroom as well and immediately informed my corrdinator to change the roses to blue and cream combination. I saw the flowers and they were bright and beautiful. Moreover blue is our fav colour!
happy.gif


and the carpet was quite in a good condition...not sure why in the last threads they said it was bad. anyway, good all good. and there was a projector screen provided FOC for the ballroom. so i will bring my own recorder and projector. Rasa say they will help us fix that up.

hmm..wat else? carpark wise...seems alright leh. yesterday i managed to get a lot but maybe becoz there is only 1 wedding so it was rather empty. but the distance between the Parade Sq and Rasa was rather far i thought.

I also get a special favour from the receptionist to grant me access to the bridal suite as our parents has yet to see it. and they are so obliging...they brought us up and they are happy with the bridal suite. i realised that there are actually 2 differnt suite. One is with an attached openair garden. the other is not. however, i requested for the one wihout the garden as we find there is more privacy,. the garden is actually shared for the entire level. and somehow the room without the garden looks bigger and has a longer balcony and nicer sea view.

ok, tat;s all i can remember...let me know if you have any qns. but was good to see that all parents are rather happy except maybe for the carpark space. ok, i be positive!! thanks all.

hey gals,

was at rasa last even'g, here's wat i've found :-
bobomagic is rite - carpk not exclusive 2 our guest except e beach front which can pk abt 50 cars. e parade sq some1 mention is far fr rasa n abit dark - at 9pm, there's only 1 car parked there n blgds ard v.old n run down - kinda of scary!

e band at e louge was there n wen guests open e main door 2 go washrm, i'd think guests inside can hear.

e receptn area was v.open n they juz put up a rather small notice of wedding banque. tt pc of ribbon they used 2 tie under e sign - wow, like they've torn fr a pc of cloth!!

i'm abit disappointed rasa din hv budget to acquire new decorative stuff - e pavillion looked so empty w juz a few flowers stand n they looked so old!!
sad.gif


went Graceful Image bridal show at Mandarin y'day - im impressed w their ballrm deco!!

fang, did u had ur fd tasting at Shell Cafe - saw a grp inside ;p

Hi fang

hmm..u mean the ballroom decor include balloons? wat theme was that? haven been to seen others wedding yet....=p

so wat did you ask for the wedding gift for the guest?

ya...hows the liquor? do we really need to bring in duty paid liquor?

as for the VIP table, wat table cloth color you use and wat abt the rest of the tables?

are you goin to have a long march or a short one?

hmm...wat abt the decor of the stage? hows is it like?

sorrie to ask so many qns...i think other rasa guest would also like to know...hehe

Hi vio,

me having dinner at pavilion. you mean that bad. must consider to change to ballroom liao..

also fang,
what food is not good, can we combine certain food from menu a and b??
 

vio

New Member
hi totoro,

y not u arrange 2 take a look 1st. pavillion hv open view which i like + can hv cocktail recep @ e 'garden' juz outside e dinning rm!! not many places like tt lor.

things i've pointed out earlier are for ref. n for u gals to take note so tt if u dun like certain things or e way they do it, bring it up to ur coordinator's attn ;) wan everything nice on our Big Day mah hee...

if rasa could improve on things we suggest, it'll sure make our day even better!
 

fang

New Member
Hi Vio,

Yeah that was me and my family in the enclosed room for food tasting. heee..

didn;t know you be there yesterday. By the way, why are you there for? I thot your dinner is still quite long?

i know for sure i am the next rasa bride in this thread. hehee...just cannot wait to get over this painlessly
happy.gif


I think i must have missed the band presence. coz when i went there at ard 8p.m..there were no music and when i went up at 9p.m. i couldn't see them too. by the way, wat instruments did the band play? as for the tables, we chose gold over red. as for liquor, i think you need to talk to your coordinator. some allow duty free liquor but limited lah but some said cannot accept duty free. mine passed leh. hehee...

as for the walk-in song, i have yet to decide. decor of the stage is ok lor. simple with cake and the mcee stand. i think it is more or less the same with other wedding ballroom i been. anyway, most impt is the bride lah..hehee...focus is still US :p

hi totoro,

as for me i prefer the pavilion coz of the outdoor reception garden view i like. my parents also agreed. as for silso ballroom it is more private and quite. and since pavilion is located at lobby level, it is more convenient for guests. the only disadvantage is that the coffee lounge has their own band on sunday and it is located near the reception area. but the good news, my guests are free to sit in the lounge as well.

as for menu, i personally like the Menu A dishes over the menu B.
so it is really up to individual.

Hi fang,

thank you for the information. Can I check with you again... sorry memory is fading me... yours is Pavilion or Siloso Ballroom?? Those that you mentioned are for Pavilion?? Glad to hear that the food is good. I was told that we can swap the dishes between menu A & B, did you do that? I was also told that the food tasting is for the full course, is this true? I was re-assure by my coordinator that food will be serve hot during dinner.

Hi Vio,
I was told that they had changed the carpet for Pavilion... you mean they didn't? any idea whether the lighting at Pavilion, how is it? the last time I was there, the lights are qutie dim but maybe because nobody using it thus they dim the light a little. Don't want to be tooooo dim, else guest can't see what they are eating... ;p

hi icy,

mine is pavilion. yes those mentioned are for pavilion. yes we are able to swap bet menu a and b...but i preferred all the dishes from menu a. so easier also. yes it is for full course and it was serve piping hot except for cold dish la. heee...

no the carpet wasn;t chg for pavilion but rest assured, i saw it and it was still in good condition. i asked my coordinator and she said there was no plan to chg it. as for the light, it was ok...but during march in, it cannot be dimmed further..either ON or OFF.

Hi Vio, Did u walk or drive over to Parade Sq carpark? Is it easy to find?? Cos I heard that they will be putting up signages from Sentosa entrance all the way t the hotel n have hotel ppl to direct guest to the parade sq carpark if beachfront is filled. So i thot relative distance shouldn't be so far since needed re-direction. Wah!! from the sound of it seems quite ulu hor. Do u know if the guest gets picked up from a bus stop or some shelter if they park at Parade Sq? Ortherwise once night fall, if no light ...dun know if they can find their way around the car park anot....hmmm. Heehee sory for shooting so many qns...getting concerned

Hi Icy, Glad to hear u took up the package..Hope u made a good deal!! I took BZ up cos i luved their photography n managed to catch some other BZ brides PS...so standard is there. How abt u? Do u liked the pics too?? I dun really know abt the other coordinators but I think the most important thing is that u feel u can click with her...which i'm sure u did!

Hi icy,

fang

New Member
hi vio,

when u come into the carpark did u see a sign outside stating carpark is full, please park at the parade sq?

i did saw that sign so we hestiate a little but approaching nearer, the man guide us in,....very misleading lor...wait those guest thot cannot park and then wait confusion.

gee the band was playing fast music...hopefully they dun interrupt mine.

so have u booked ur package with Rasa already?
 

vio

New Member
hi fang,

hi bobomagic,

vio

New Member

Vio..thanks for the list, got it

After some thoughts, me n fiance decided to stick to same coordinator..hopefully things will turn out right. None of u have the same coordinator as me so I dont mind disclosing...my coordinator is Chanel...think she's pretty new on the job.

A few of us have rather close wedding dates
happy.gif
that's good, all can share info.

Fang, do remember to update us on how u solve ur carpark issue. Me also worried about the pavilion because around 8pm, the BBQ below the reception area will start n it will become very smoky and hot. This is what i saw last time, hopefully the situation has improved.
