Blissful solemnisation at Bliss House



This place is definitely 1 of my favourite but being my favourite always comes with a price. Lol!

For minimum spending for the Garden area is $3k, which means... most likely its OUT. Four the House area, minimum spending is $2k so its still healthy =D

Photos for the 'House'.




The door to enter. The chairs outside belongs to the Garden area.


Their food menu & must be minimum 30pax
$55++ x 30 = $1650
$65++ x 30 = $1950
$75++ x 30 = $2250

Drinks for 4 hours 
$15++ x 30 = $450

Lets say, I just take the cheapest menu $1650 + $450 = $2100++

Quite a good package price as well. We are going down this coming Fri. Lets hope theres no other hidden cost when we meet up with the coordinator.

Wulu wedding solemnisation @ Skyve Wine Bistro

Here's the next venue which I find it quite cheap. The place looks nice but its not very convenient. Im not sure if I will like the place but if its value for money then why not? I must keep in mind that we still need to spend for a bigger wedding next year =)

Heres the reply from the venue:

-------------------------------------

Thanks for your email and also interest in having your wedding event at Skyve.
We are pleased to inform you that we are still available on the 26th Oct and we are all excited to have you and your guests with us.

Attached will be the Solemnisation Package which we would like to propose to you.
This menu and food style is actually good for small parties and gathering for couples to host for their immediate families and close friends.
Since you are having 25 pax would recommend you to take up our Lounge area (min 40 pax taking up the canapes menu or min spend: $1800++) for this joyous occasion.
This package would entitled you the exclusive usage of the area for 3 hours, 10-1pm11-2pm12-3pm1-4pm or 2-5pm.

Alternatively, if you are looking for something which is more filling for the guests' stomach, you can consider our buffet lunch too.
However, for our buffet lunch, we have a MOQ of 30 pax.

For kids, we also have a kids menu for your kind consideration.

Alongside, we are also pleased to offer decoration & floral services to make it seamless for planning and which includes the following:
- One Solemnization table decor and styling with floral centerpiece and table runner
- Bride & Groom chair decor with flower posies
- Solemnization/Ceremony backdrop with a Choice of: English Paper Lanterns or Farm-inspired Buntings or Elegant Drapes or Bohemian Leaves
- One Bridal hand Bouquet
- One Groom Boutonniere
P.S. Choice of Flowers: Roses, Eustomas, Gerbera, Baby’s breath
Flowers and colors can be tweaked on preferred theme

For the above decoration items, it would be an additional of $680 nett (optional and paid to our vendor directly)

Here is another link which lead you to an article which we host a similar scale wedding event as yours. Hope this is would be a good reference for you.

I would recommend us to have a meet up and share your requirements and expectations with us so that we can then put together a suitable and unique proposal for you.

Their menu - $60++ x 30pax (must be minimum 30) = $1800++
Solemnisation decor - $680nett

The amount is not too expensive. It still within my $3k budget. Maybe can go down to have a look as well. 

Have some coffee @ Coffeemin for solemnisation?

I got quite shocking news last week that more of my bf's relatives are coming. From 20 pax increase to 26 pax. Which means I need more budget for the solemnisation and also 1 of my preferred choice - Fullerton Bay Hotel: The Pod will be out of my sight soon.

Oh well, so my search begins again. I found this cute coffee house available for booking. Heres the email reply from them.
