    i can see that wedding dinners nowadays are getting more and more sian ..

    people are invited becos they need to fill up the numbers and ang pows.. ! people come becos they want to keep the relationship or give face.. and after wedding.. all become quiet.

    .. and the wedding dinner is never enough to fill stomachs.. always need to eat something beforehand.

    guess the cost of the dinner (per pax)
    then add in the amount of money you would want to give the couple as a gift

    if you are close then give more
    if not then give less

    me pack $100-128.
    think depends on which hotel bah.

    For posh hotels like raffles, per table is around 1.3K++
    3-4 stars hotels per table is around 800 +++

    also depend on how close u r with the bride or groom...
    Also, most couple would be contented if you can just cover their cost.

    not to mention it always started late.

    i've only attended one wedding dinner of my good friend and he started RIGHT on time.7.30 SHARP.

    and no matter how much the guest packed.it will never be able to cover his cost.
    his wedding for 23 tables cost 65k.


    sometimes hor...old friends whom u tot awol already, suddenly reappear and call you for address cos they want to send you red summon.
    this kind of 'friends'....are those whom i'll tell them i'm occupied.

    so far, the best wedding venues in terms of spaciouness as priority i've come across are

    shangrila,ritz and swissotel.

    raffles at 1.3k per table is really a bit ex.and their food aint the greatest.
    but then again, it's like this.

    you pay $100-150, NO FOOD on earth you will think it's good.

    ritz is great.
    but customer service not the best.
    i was my best friend's wedding planner.
    so i can proudly say, majority of the 4-5 stars hotels in sgp, i've dealt with them in a way or other.

    sentosa beaufort's customer service is the best imho.

    Err.. u may be saying this. But when u r getting married u will join the club oso..

    Its like doing cold call.. but bobian.

    Most Hotel min no of tables is 20.. to open up the entire ballroom min is 25-30.

    Wah koaz where got so many relatives to invite.

    Worse if u r working for a SME... Total manpower in company less than 10.....

    Lidat how to fill tables to minimum, so bobian call old friends who u too busy to keep contact with but would love to see them on ur wedding.

    Anyway, u guys have a choice to reject invitations right? If u think u can't make it, or it may have a meterorite impact on ur bonus, just reject loh?

    U see ppl rejecting u on ur wedding.

    To accept or reject alll depend on how close ur relationship with tat friend. Whether is it in the past or still good friends now
