18 Venues To Have Both A Garden Ceremony And Reception In Malaysia

It is quite the norm these days to have a garden ceremony right before a dinner reception. Here is a list of specially selected venues that have both a lush, green garden for your ceremony and a great ballroom or space for your reception. The great things about having both the ceremony and reception at the same venue is that your guests will not need to move from one place to another, you could possibly get a better deal from the hotel, and you will be able to start the reception earlier since your guests are already there.

    For the benefits of bride to be(s), I am reposting my experience with Gita Bayu.

    Wedding at Gita Bayu suffers from bad management. To be specific, it is the bad management skill of the sole manager of the wedding venue at Gita Bayu named Hafiz. He lacks ability to keep customers informed and was late at delivering his promise. Not only that, when confronted, he even unnecessarily said that everything was not his mistake since the management has the right to rebuke the date if needed, as stated in the term and conditions and even mentioned he would still win the case should we decide to bring the case to court because we haven't paid the downpayment (which obviously shows that he lacks of sound customer service as he succumb to "defensive" mode when unable to explain the situation well). Logically, how can we make a downpayment when we are yet to receive an invoice from him?

    It started end of 2014 when we met Hafiz to understand more about the value. He told us that he can help us to book a date and we only have to pay next year, in 2015. Even we were being sceptical about making a deal without black & white, but we proceed anyway since he sounded convincing and knew what he was doing.

    Hence I waited for an invoice. We changed the date in the middle. He said okay and he even gave us a list of available dates to choose from. So, we chose one, but that was the last we heard from him. We also stated that he should informed us if and when the date become unavailable. The invoice never came. I checked my email, again and again. I could not wait any longer and I emailed him to ask for the progress of the invoice.

    He now told me that he could not give me the date. He did not even have the courtesy to inform us when the date suddenly became unavailable. He was even started to be defensive about why he could not attend to us. He said that he was busy and he is currently talking a customer. He has no courtesy to attend to a problem that was caused by his lack of foresight.

    We called him and he started to be rude, lacking in all sort of customer service. It was an unpleasant event. Rudely he said and I quote "So, now.. If you want to cancel the booking, I can cancel. No problem". Not even a sorry was uttered. Not even a slightest guilt was shown. Now, we are half a year away from our proposed date, without a venue, thanks to a manager who is not up to his task. So, to bride-to-be(s), I suggest avoiding Gita Bayu for its management is not up to his task.
