ROM at Mandai Orchid Garden!

We have decided to hold our solemnisation at MOG (short for Mandai Orchid Garden) a beautiful yet a little ulu place (this place is near Mandai Zoo). This is not cheap like what it stated in its very outdated webby of $38/pax but the new rate is now:
(price updated for 2008)
High Tea Solemnization Package:( 9am to 12 pm) ( 2pm to 5pm)
S$42++ per pax
minimum of 50 pax
Buffet Lunch Package:(11am to 3 pm)
S$55++ per pax
minimum of 50 pax
Buffet Dinner Package:( 5pm to 11 pm)
S$60++ to S70++ per pax ( Depend on the menu chosen)
minimum of 50 pax
All the packages Includes:
- free flow of soft drinks
- choice of venues (dining and solemnization)
- decorations of venues
- elegant white seat covers for all chairs
- floral center pieces on all tables
- invitation cards (60% based on guaranteed number of guests)
- wedding favours (mini potted plants) for all guests
- free parking facility and garden entry for all guests
- Backgroud music for the dining area. Any further sound system with microphones chargeable at $ 400.00++

*I really wonder if they deliberately not update their webby tho how can you not update since 2005???? *
So it was really a difficult decision for us to made. Since it will come up to near $50/pax nett. But for us, we really value the solemnisation event more than the banquet itself since we feel that this is a legal marriage not the banquet (seriously banquet is really for making the elderlies happy since they value it as the proper marriage procedure to announce that we are married to all the relatives and friends). So we decided to have a good solemnisation and a fair banquet =)instead! Yipee!
So how nice if MOG exactly? Picctures speaks a thousand words so here are pictures I found online:

For cheaper alternative, there is this other area (Gazebo) where you can hold your solemnisation at.

A cosy yet pretty area where we going to solemnize at! This is the Piazza area. There is even a fountain by the side of the hut!

Finally our guests need not worry about the hot sunny noon! Cos the dining area is at the Vanilla Pod Restaurant (which is fully and nicely well air conditioned which is so cooling!) From the restaurant you can look out through the glass window for all the fabulous orchids! The best thing is that all guest will get a nice small African rose potted plant home. The plants will all be arrange on the tables so it will look fabulous!

Do remember to bring along your camera as I'm sure you will want to take a nice photo with the orchids.

So TADA presenting you the place where we are solemnising : Mandai Orchid Garden!
