first of all... just to say congrats... Just wanted to get some opinon on the place, general accessibility and how they go for their banquet packages. ie hard liquor duties and how is the wedding decor.. stuff like that. Also do they run shuttle buses from orchard? thks!
Had my wedding there last Sat. It was fantastic. MY guests who spoke to me kept telling me the place is very nice and everyone was commenting on how nice the food was. Too bad I didn't get to eat. I had a standing brunch. As we were their second couple plus we actually went to them long before they were ready, we had a lot of bargaining power and got a really good deal. If u interested, I can email u the details.
I am new in this thread. Just want to give my two-cents worth of opinion. I went to the hotel yesterday and I have to say the place looks good.
frankly, when I saw the outside of the hotel with multi-colored glass, it didn't really impress me but the inside of the hotel is nice. It is great for couples who want peace and the function rooms are cozy and the decor is minimalist.
my AD is on the 12/11.. been looking around for buffet dinner.. but cant find any. very very sad now. i guess we need to postpone the wedding but 12th is very meaningful for me.. cos me and my fiance will be together for 2 years , it like 2 years anniversary .. So how is your preparation going on? When is your AD?
having my Rom and AD June 06 still a long way to go have already confirmed my dinner venue for AD but still sourcing around for ROM venue.
why you cant find any? hot date? have you gone BS shopping?
Just to share:
Didnt manage to talk to the hotel person as they were all on leave due to public holiday today. But bf and I went anyway to check out Changi Village Hotel as we are interested to hold our solemnization at their rooftop poolside.
And we rather like it! It's really beautiful with a sea view (refer to Bliss Mag pg 320 if u all have it..it looks exactly like the photo). There is also an Italian restaurant beside the pool but if u want to hold your solemnization inside the rsetaurant (it has this little balcony with a seaview too, where u can hold the solemnization), the manager quoted us abt $50+++ per pax, which is too exp for us. Note that the rental of the restaurant is separate from the poolside, which is handled by the hotel.
So now we are thinking of checking with the hotel how much it will cost to rent the poolside (for mabbe 30 min for the solemnization) and proceed downstairs to their restaurant at the lobby for lunch. The Asian lunch buffet cost abt $28++. They also have small function rooms near the lobby. It's my first time to Changi Village Hotel and I think their lobby and look and feel really feels quite classy after their renovation!
Long time never see this thread liao. My ROM is in March 06. The person whom I liase with is quite prompt wld most likely hold our solemnization by the pool...not taking the package though coz it is too exp, so reception will be at the Saltwater cafe in 1st floor.
Glad: the pool is nice, nice for a small gathering. Think u made a right choice not to take the full package. The food at the cafe is good.
Actually I think they have a v nice place but the wedding team lacks creativity and are not updated with the current trends that are happening. To hav a traditional and common wedding, I think they r a gd choice but want anything more special then might want to reconsider them.
After so much stress going through sourcing of venues, we managed to book The Legends for Oct 06.. It will be outdoor ROM =) happy!
Brides-to-be: if you want to hold your weddings on popular auspicious dates.. remember to book early.. My Fiance and I are lucky that a couple before us have decided to postpone their wedding and we got the ballroom..
Gonna meet the wedding planner tomorrow.. hope all goes well! Gd luck to all =)
