Hi all brides, hope everything has been going well for all of u.
I'm having a big headache now as my coordinator Jane has resigned and the new one hasn't come on board yet. so i was thinking who may be a good one? Is irene good? wat about michele? these are the only 2 names i saw here..hee..
I will be holding my wedding banquet on 24th May. May I ask if there will be a live feed for the March ins? Or do we need to top up cos I don't remember my co-ordinator telling me about that when we met up with Michele to discuss about the wedding theme & decor.
Hi Sassy gal,
Thanks for the info, will check with my VG. Do you think the live feed is worth the trouble? Is it for 1st & 2nd March or for entire dinner? Sorry I am very blur not sure abt such things.
I will be holding my solemization at the waterfall...keke never thought about what will happen if it rains though...keeping my fingers crossed..
I'm also intending to arrange for livefeed. Should be for both 1st & 2nd March in(since your VG will be there the whole time).
Don't think it's troublesome. but check with your VG how much they are charging.. this might be an area of consideration. (FYI, my VG quoted me $100). Think it's rather reasonable coz they said the long cable for the livefeed is very exp.
I also had live feed previously and was also charged $100 for it (and same reason for the long cable required). I had it both for 1st and 2nd march in... I thought it would be good tat people at the back k see us walking in & wun feel neglected.
But something for thoughts (nt sure if its do-able): Maybe you can aso check if your VG can record down the march in since they are doing e live feed.
I really wanted to hold mind at Sheraton Towers as 4 of my close pals held their wedding there and it was great! But my dates are mostly taken. Wonder if I should change date or choose somewhere else. If I don't act fast enough I might have to push my wedding back to 2010 and I'd be 32 by then!
Sheraton is indeed good, my bro held his there too. why not consider other hotel? Merchant Court is good too... you dun have to be the same as your close pals... who knows when the pixs are out, yours will be better than them... hehe... can go to Merchant Court thread to see.. maybe you will be tempted to take up MC too...
yah... must act fast if not dates will be taken up.
There is plenty of nice venues(depending on budget of course) such as Marriot, Traders, Orchard, Intercontinetal etc etc. Stick to the date you want, dats more important than anything unless you don mind pushing it till later dates. jus my two cents worth...
...Other hotels Hyatt, Marina Mandrin you may like to consider also. Some brides book their hotels 1-2 years in advance so that they can secure the dates they want. Those who didn't in fact abit hard to secure place on the date they want if its a "hot" date.
If your dates are calculated by Shifu, better stick to it.
It will be good too as I heard from my bro that Sheraton already up their prices alot this year... if you push your wed dates till 2010, I believe prices will up alot more in future... (the same goes with other hotels)
Just for you to take into consideration...hope it helps....
No, we usually dun. They should be busy taking photos and I dun see any photographer or videographer eating the banquet dinner. haha. Anyway, you will not have 100% attendance.. there will be vacant seats.. so they might just slot in to take a seat in between. They need to be very alert and knows when u are starting march in... U wont be happy if they are happy eating away..
The wedding show peaks is only for wedding held before 31st Dec 2008. It wouldn't make any difference for normal day to comfirm if you need next year or 2010 wedding date, but for pricing I'm not too sure as they have price range that valid for certain period. I think you can try to check with their coordinator Ms Benedit, she's very friendly & helpful.
Thats exactly my consent.. cuz if i were to book now for a 2010 wedding..say they charge me $1200nett per tbl, im afraid they will throw in this kind of promo on 2010 itself.. like 808nett per tbl kinda stuff..
But if Sheraton throw in such promo, which is only applicable during that year (2010). That mean you might not get your prefer date during the promotion. Like I'm still pending for my date (21st Nov 09), as there's another party which already blocked up two weeks (which my date falls within one of them).
You will be taking a risk to cofirm within the same year and I feel that your perks would be better since you are paying more for the tables. Hence to me to sign on the fair shouldn't be too much a difference. My 2 cents of thoughts.
I've attended the wedding show last sat. it wasn't really a show but more like a showcase of their food (buffet style - which looked really good and really delicious), BS sales people promoting their packages with a small rack display of their gowns, wedding jewellry showcase, wine tasting, samples of wedding favors and invitation cards... there was a geomancer there who will calculate wedding dates for a $50 fee as well...
apparently a lot of people had their food, walked around took photos and left... it's free registration n free carpark, but no lucky draw
