The Myanmar Times - - Wedding 2016 -

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.
