The long march-in can only b done at the low ceiling part. Bt if u use long march-in (which is more romantic), ur guests at the high ceiling part won't be able 2 see u till u reach the inter-section of the low n high ceiling. The short march-in is the diagonal part.
sorry to MIA for so long. now i a bit blur on who is who??!!??
anyway on reduce # of tables, Eunice did say if 3 days be4 dinner can only confirm 28 instead of 30 (wkend min 30), they can close 1 eye lah... but if too many then maybe cannot liao.
welcome tissuebox and congrats!
any ladies here decided on the color theme liao? I jus went for my EG selection last wk n decided no red or maroon coz that's probably the theme i'l choose. "ang ang" for good luck but i oso dun wan to look like walking backdrop. hee hee
hi preciousmoments, how is it? have u chk with Roger on the corkage charges??
hi tissuebox, congrats! one load off ur shoulders liao i am sure there is a way they can work out for u on the march in dun worry
hi olio, thks for the pics very nice.. u very cute like to make funny faces heheh ur AD pics very nice, which BS are u with last time arh?
hi wyn52, wow can reduce to 28 arh? will chk it out with Yan then too me haven finalise the no of guests yet.. just roughly list out and see.. abt there how's ur design gg on?? i also like the red/maroon backdrop also heard tt maybe they will be changing theme .. got to chk with them liao heheheh
i did check with the videographer leh, some say if we wanna show us waiting to for march-in, can pre-record, i dun think it'll b very natural leh.. another one say can, provided wire long enough
dun really know how they're going to do..
cheers, if i'm not wrong, live-feed means while the videograher taking, guests can watch from the scree. something like live show on air
i dun think pre-record is nice leh.feels funny lei.
have u confirm ur BS? i am still searching.
'live-feed' is like wat purplenic say, like live tv show cos during the march in, cos of the l-sharp, some ppl at the other corner cannot see you until u reach the centre so if got live-feed to "telecast" then they will be able to see the whole march in
my design session ok lor. WG that i like was sold so got nothing to try. EG i like too small cannot try oso. Jus my luck rite??!! kidding liao, not angry or anything. i hv MTM gowns so will hv to wait til Sept for 1st fitting.
me planning to go down to htl again when they hv to red/maroon theme jus to hv a look coz only saw the pix only.
dun tink dey r planning for any major reno, at least that's what they claimed. may only upgraded the lifts, i think good idea for that.
HI EVERTYONE!!!! I am back after missing for almost 2 weeks was busy with exhibition stuffs... luckily it was over *phew*
Hi cheers, i did not us any BS. The makeup artise cum hair stylist and photographers are my frens
Thus i leave everything to them. BUT it cost us so much more then any package offered by any BS. We are very happy with everything so its money well spent
About the wedding cards, the last time Roger gave me a contact, say they have a working agreement with this shop. They have a wide variety of wedding cards for u to chose from, not sure it ST is still using them. Their shop is in the building opp Orchard Hotel.

I'm a newbie in this thread and a potential sheraton bride too =) actually, my FH and I have decided on ST and have arranged with Eng Yan to sign the contract this thurs. However, after reading this thread, I feel abit short-changed. Does that mean we cannot negotiate for more perks??
We will prob have about 34 to 36 tables but ST is only giving one 22.7L barrel and the subsequent one costs $525. They are also charging $20+++ per bottle for wine corkage and no free wines are given. I tired to negotiate with Eng Yan but she's rather firm. =(
In these aspects, I think Merchant Court provides a much attractive deal but I'm not too sure about their service. THe MC coordinator is either too busy or have short memory coz he cant seem to rem that he has to call me back to confirm certain things.
I'm in a dilemna now. FH and me plan to hold our customary and ROM on the same day in Oct next year. But we are getting the keys to our flat this Friday. Thus, in order to defer the ROM cert, we need to produce the hotel receipt as proof to HDB, which mean we have to sign up a hotel by this Thurs!
hi purplenic, i think they will keep the hao liao for their speciality hehe i got the menu for the wedding pkage will compare and see whether same anot i think maybe not much changes
hi tissuebox, how many tables ur fren have?? on wkend or wkday?? mine got free flow cos i signed during wedding show...
hi dice, my coordinator is also Eng Yan.. cos i signed during wedding show.. so much of the perks are throw in liao... wat items did u neg on?? what perks she willing to give u?
i went to MC b4 too.. but heard their coordinator very firm with the min tables..38.. i can't meet tt so i din ask them further.. i also encounter tt.. request my pkage a couple of times.. got throw from one coordinator to another.. call them leave msg.. email them.. until i feel like i bugging them to show me the pkage then i also sian liao... and also heard tt the pkage oni valid till march they will revise the pkage again..
i choose ST cos i love their ballroom, heard good comments abt their food.. then heard they having wedding show... chk out the perks also good so signed them immediately..
woow tt's very rush for u... i think since hdb willing to let u have the key.. they give a grace period of 6 mths for u to produce the ROM cert rite?? is it ok to show them the hotel receipt with these 6 mths??
1st regarding the hdb thingy, my friends are able to hold off their wedding for abt 6 mths without producing any proof to the hdb. it is only after that then they receive a reminder from hdb. so maybe u can call and check properly 1st so that you do not have to rush into signing with sheraton if it does not meet your requirement.
2nd, with regard to the perks, you need to be firm with ur negotioation with them. maybe EY knows that u are desprate to sign so she does not want to give you any perks.
better think properly cos i have the impression that you sign is cos of the hdb deadline. once you sign then nothing can be change. if the hdb deadline can be defer then there is no hurry right??
my friend got abt 40+ table at orchard hotel.
his is on 1 jul(fri). he got 2 barrel free so must pay for 2.5 barrel lor. somemore theirs is tiger beer(i think the litre is more then ours, ours is carlbergs)so if compare then we may need 5 barrel.(our friends is abt the same group lor)
hiya Dice~ me so excited to see someone new here hahaha ST forum very quiet leh.. i'm going to b bored to death hahaha
wat are the perks you're gotten? my coord is Roger, and he's a real nice guy to talk to.. give us a very sincere to help attitude
so not sure if Eng Yan is as easy to work with
if you can't get wat you wan, y not try talking to Roger?? keke
like wat cheers said, sign during show will b more worth it.. cause they usually throw in more perks
i think HDB's side should b able to defer.. jus tell them you still nego. with hotels? they should understand.. we also deferred our keys collection.. better not rush into things when you are not ready
in case you regret later
for us, we chose Sheraton because of it's accessibility, food and ambience
as for perks.. i think it's already quite attractive even w/o free flow beer quite comparable to other hotels
