OUPLES planning to marry once the monsoon Lenten period is over need to plan well in advance where to hold their weddings and receptions and to keep within budget. Those who properly prepare for the big day would certainly make life easier for themselves before, during and after the event.
Here are some tips on how to get it done in Mandalay, and the costs and services involved. Some hotels even accept bookings four or five days before the event, but that would fall under the term “rush job” rather than proper planning. That does happen in Mandalay at times.
And even if planned beforehand, things can still go awry. For instance, one hotelier remembers when a bride and groom had planned on having 300 hundred guests and 900 turned up.
Each hotel seems to have its own set of rules too. Some allow couples to bring in their own caterers, others don’t. And one that does allow catering, doesn’t allow ice cream to be included in a couple’s menu … for good reason.
The main tip: couples should carefully check what each hotel offers to see what best fits their wedding plans.
