Hi, thanks for the msg. Pan pac was initially my shortlisted hotels but have drastically changed my list - hilton, sheraton and marriott. Intercontinental was out for me as the room they offered is too small and not impressive. Their perks are also not good at all. Sheraton is best in customer service and their hotel is surprisingly grand and elegant. Hilton though not really a 5-star hotel but the lady, Grace, who met us was very friendly and proactive. Function rooms are both beautiful and pillarless. Anyway all the best in your wedding function and congratulations to you!!hi Hopefulbride2016
I will have my wedding dinner at Pan Pacific Orchard on 02-Jan-16, Saturday. We have 8 confirmed tables, their minimum is 5, maximum is 10. The package attached by Minkishly is the most updated one.
I visited a few venues with smaller capacity, i.e. 7-8 tables, we decided to get Pan Pacific Orchard because:
1. There is only 1 function room or 1 weeding at anytime in Pan Pacific Orchard. I am a minimalist, i don't want a huge banner with our wedding photos and names on to tell the guests "Hi we are here! it is function room A!". It is also good for our guests, they won't go to the wrong function room.
2. Accessible location. Centrally located, walking distance from Orchard MRT, guests could come by MRT without taking bus. If you host your wedding at Sentosa or Changi Airport, your guests will think twice before they RSVP.
3. No pillow.
4. Price is reasonable.
5. Catering managers are very accommodating. The first one whom I signed my package with resigned, her boss took over. Both of them are very professional, listen to your needs and wants, help you to plan, take the initiatives to call you and arrange meet-ups (I was busy, most of the time overseas). We are vegetarians and we want full-vegetarian banquet, the chefs really do their best to prepare for us. We changed the menu so many times before food tasting and the result was great. No complain so far, probably have to write a letter to compliment them after my wedding.
If you have any questions to ask, please e-mail me, [email protected].. i do not actively check this webpage.

I have more that I listed at my wedding planning blog with photos of the venues and solemnization areas. (A bit lazy to type them all out :x) It's not very updated though, haven't had the time to update.
I really liked the wedding coordinator that I met with for Mandarin Orchard. His name is Haresh and he's really really nice and professional. Too bad the ballroom wasn't to our tastes, so we ended up going with Fullerton instead (which also has a very good wedding coordinator).
Hope this helps!
