happy.gif


Mrs life not much diff for me. Cos' sometimes I go home, sometimes I stay with in-laws. Feels very uncomfy to stay with in-laws. But gotta handle this kinda life for about 2 yrs till my flat is ready. Just gotta be aware of my actions in front of in-laws lo. So I will make my bed every morning... which I don't do it when I am at home. LOL... must action action a bit.

Will be stayin on our own.. though not technically not our house lah... hehe

Me and Htb are very lazy people... so i think F&E is very troublesome... a lot of planning required... so likely to find a package tour and maybe extend on our own for a couple of days..

Yes, i have been to US... admittedly, i think its quite easy to get ard on your own... jus need to plan lor.. and book all tickets and hotels beforehand.. coz its your honeymoon after all.. and im sure u dun wanna stay in some backpackers hostel..

Which part of the states do u want to go? I was there for work in Sept last year...
happy.gif
but spent most of my time travelling from city to city.. so not sure if i can offer any valuable advice..

Hi Cher,

Many thanks! I saw the email but I was too busy with the CNY, juggling between 2 houses... that I haven't got time to reply you.

Will be discussing with my hubby to see how we're going for our honeymoon!

Thanks, gal! Let me know if you need any advice for your wedding. Will try to help as much as I can

Hi Joyce,

i took the yellow embroided bookmark and the heart shape hang-handphone thingy.

Personally I like the bookmark and the mandarin duck coaster. But hubby prefers the hang handphone thing.

i sign up last Dec... their items are pretty similar and normal as compared to other hotels... only the mandarin duck coaster is unique... cos only Marriott have

my BF went to Oriental and Grand Copthorne Waterfront...their wedding favours are so nice and big.. haa

Based on my research last year, Oriental per table is much more costly than Marriott and their location is not as good as Marriott in my point of view.

Economy no good, people's ang bao shrink. so must choose venue carefully...

hey Cher!

glad to share with you. my colleagues are generous ppl coming with $100 each for most of them, except for clerical staff who came with like $80. I don't blame them cos' their income cannot be compared to the rest. I already find $100 generous. If your table is more than $1k, you sure lose le.

Relatives... they all give my dad face cos' my dad's their eldest brother. So I would say generally can earn a bit. Mum's side... my aunties are well known as stingy people. uncles are super close to me, just like friends so they gave me very big Angpow, really big, write cheque one! but you think of it, these relatives ang pow goes to my parents...
happy.gif
Considering this, u already lost all ur relatives' table upfront.

My hubby's side worst... his relatives all don't know market rate de. we have 5 in a family coming with $100 ang bao... we also have relatives coming without ang bao. Most of his colleagues & friends are not very 'generous'. Hubby's side total we got 13 tables... we lose 6 tables money. We also have nameless angbao with $20... can't match the names cos' many people din write their names. cant be helped. If u give a $20 angbao, will u write ur name???

Ultimately, I think it boils down who u invite. u will noe ur relatives/frens/colleagues the best. Judging from previous weddings u attend with ur colleagues, you'll likely know. many people feel that it's not to help u cover ur wedding expenses but it's just a tot. A tot that counts...

And u r right... many people don't know wedding tables are so costly. We heard people saying aiyah at most $800 only ma... give $88, they earn $8 can le. Ever since I started looking for wedding tables, I never attend weddings with less than $100 ang baos regardless how not-close I am to the bride/groom. Cos' I believe this kind of thing got karma de. My mum was telling me next time we just give back the same amt. If relatives come never give, next time we go also no need to give.

I really thank god I did not choose Oriental. We almost signed up with them at $1.3+k nett per table. I think if i did, I would have lost like $10k.

I mean not to scare u la. but be prepared...

Thanks grace...i think my frens / colleagues will be quite market savvy.. so cross my fingers that most will give ard $80 to $100.... relatives is that one that is not within my control...esp my bf's side of relatives...

I know they are not obligated to help us cover the cost of the dinner.. just praying that we wont make too much losses..

happy.gif


Ya, I saw the cheap tix to SFO on SQ... not much plans leh. Too busy, no time to plan. Might end up going on group tour... Probably extend if we want to.
 
hey did you all watch the news last week? apparently mariott is giving out free stays to couples who rom-ed on 14 feb.. donch have to sign up with them also... but i think its only valid for 1st 30 cpls..

hi grace,

i've saw yr pics on yr wedding site. hehe actually i thinking since the ballroom should be quite small, march in & toasting is it weird.
 

ecarg1310

New Member
hi eternity,

probably you can do table-to-table toasting instead of a group toast, since that legacy suite can only hold 5 - 6 tables I think.

For march-in, probably a L-shaped march-in, so you can have a longer march-in. Check w your coordinator, they will definitely be the best to advise.

Who's ur coordinator by the way?
