I think Iceman and I will very likely to be going with Hyatt for our wedding dinner in Singapore. Actually we’ve pretty much decided on it. Our new coordinator, Ah Man, is working on the draft contract and will email it to us by end of the week (I told her she could take till early next week if necessary). We’ll then review, make any amendments if needed and then pay the deposit and sign the original contract next week.
As recommended by Zounds, Iceman and I have both signed up for the Standard Chartered Manhattan card so that we can get the credit rebate for bulk payments of wedding stuff (banquet, bridal package, etc). Hopefully, the card will be ready by next week so we can use it to pay for our deposit. Heh.
Anyway, we’ll be looking at having the JB dinner on 1 Aug 2009 and the Singaopre dinner on 2 Aug 2009. Coincidentally, the gal whom I’m the replacement headcount for at work, is also having her wedding on 2 Aug 2009! Freaky coincidence man. (She’s the reason why Grand Copthorne isn’t available :P).
To sum it up, once we ink the contract with Hyatt, that would be 1 big load off our minds.
Next step – need to settle the JB dinner venue.
Sure hope we break even from the two dinners!
