Meeting Hotel Coordinator This Week-what Other Perks Can We Ask To Have?

Recommended Posts

Wow! How did you all get your dates so fast? Do you all see the master?

Yup, hotels always said the 09 prices are not out yet and not accept bookings then though..

Even now, some hotels 09 pricing is not out yet.

Ya I went to consult master for auspicious date....

I think most hotels won't have 09 pricing yet....:unsure:

Normally if the date is a very good date and it falls on a weekend, people will sure book way in advance. Not surprisingly.

but i thought the tong shu only comes out after chinese new year?

Hi fifteen may...

Probably you can ask for more carpark coupons if most of your guests drive? I had 30% of confirmed tables....but different hotels have different perks lor...hee..

Hi fifteenmay, those fengshui masters can calculated auspicious dates without tong shu. that's why many ppl able to booked banquet way advance.. i also book mine slightly more than 1 yr ago.. :notti:

Hi All,

i am signing my contract with Merchant court this week. However if we want more perks, we should ask before signing right?

Unfortunately, Merchant court is not that flexible on perks.

One thing troubling me is that i do not want the perk " one deluxe room for coordinators" wanted to exchange it for food vouchers,they say cannot. asked if can exchange it for an additional night in bridal suite, they say cannot :jawdrop: then in the end, we finally ask " so what can we exchange it for?" they say we must suggest, then they say can or cannot. what kind of logic?? :bangwall:

Anyone can give suggestions on what i can ask for??

Please help!

Maybe your co-ordinator know u "too keen" on the hotel liao so haf higher bargaining tool.

U haf 2nd option or die die merchant?

If so, the room give it to your parents? Then open another at special rate for in laws.

Hi Zc31,

I think nowadays hotels have the bargaining power as they know if i dun sign up, there are other couples out there waiting.

In the end, we neg with them to let us use the deluxe room within the month of Oct 09.

They are not too flexible on the package and i am afraid that this will hampen my wedding preparations in time to come.
