Wedding updates - Change of dates and venue!

There has been a slight change to my wedding dates. The dates are now:

18th Sept 2010 --> Tea ceremony
25th Sept 2010 --> Dinner reception

The reason for this change is because we changed the venue of our dinner, and the venue that we have chosen do not have availability on 18th Sept 2010 (earlier scheduled for dinner reception). Since 18th Sept 2010 is one of the auspicious dates, so we moved our wedding dates a week later. Sigh... Well, better than nothing I guess.

The venue that we have chosen is Bankers Club. This is a private club located on the 22nd floor in Amoda Building (next to Melia Hotel and opposite Times Square).

Now, the deposit we have to booked Ah Yat Abalone is non-refundable. I read in a forum that it is transferable though, but I've yet to get this confirmed by the restaurant. Sigh whatever. There are a couple of reasons why we have chosen to forego the deposit in Ah Yat and invest in this club. No doubt, this place is much pricies and is halal. This halal issue is a major put off as I won't be able to have roast piglet for my guests anymore. But anyhow, these are some of the reasons why we have made this move:

  1. The whole concept which is not too traditional, but still covers some customary Chinese wedding dinners
  2. There is a huge cocktail area, and they served canapes for our guests too. Something for our guests while waiting for the dinner to start.
  3. The deco provided by the club covers everything, i.e. from the fresh flowers to drapes. In Ah Yat, this is on our own expense, and we hav surveyed the price for this. At least about RM1.5K for the basic deco.
  4. They serve real cake for the cake-cutting ceremony, which will be served to our guests for desserts.
  5. Dance floor is provided for our first dance hahaha! Meaning we will have to practice our dance steps.
  6. A pianist is provided during the cocktail session.

The place is really beautiful! Check out some of the photos taken. You can check out more of their pictures from their website

We paid the deposit on 9th Jan 2010. Now that the venue is settled and finalised, we will have time to concentrate on other aspects of wedding. I have to admit, all these stuff that needs to be booked earlier is best to be done way early to avoid from frustration. I went through hell trying to look for a suitable hotel. We actually selected Concorde but they can't confirm if the dates we want is available. But has fate would have it, as we were waiting for the confirmation from Concorde, we stumbled across Bankers Club, and fell in love with the place!

So, again, the dates to look forward to are:
18th Sept 2010
25th Sept 2010

Don't say I never tell!
