The spacious Grand Glenmarie Ballroom will look elegant and stunning with the lighting and decorated tables during the wedding reception. No pillars hence there is a good view. The ballroom has an LED screen right in the middle of the stage where it can be switched on to slide down or up as required. It is big and clear, additional projector screen is not really necessary. There is plenty of space at the ballroom foyer during pre-dinner cocktail for guest to mingle around. The parking is free and there are lots of space.
The wedding food is the standard hotel wedding fare with nothing to shout about. If extra decoration is required it is better and you get more value for money to source your own external decorator than engaging the hotel to do it.
The areas to take note are the not so friendly and well-trained wait staff. Service can be a problem if not addressed properly. The previous more experienced wedding planner who was helpful and efficient has been replaced by another coordinator, Wei Jing. The things planned did not go smoothly according to one bride.

Feedback for Holiday Inn Glenmarie Shah Alam: We had our wedding dinner reception in Holiday Inn Glenmarie. We had to deal with 2 wedding planner representatives from the hotel because one left the hotel half way and the 2nd one took over. However, due to internal miscommunication the handover was not done well. As a result, we had to arrange for a meeting to go through everything with the new planner Ang Wei Jing. Thereafter, all the further planning discussion was via email. It went well at the beginning as she confidently stated that all will be as per my request. However, on the actual day there were a few items that I’drequested earlier that did not go as discussed. In particular:-
1. The decorations it was not as per planned & discussed.
2. The guest signature book was changed last minute and we were not informed.
3. No bowl/paper bag was provided for keeping of red packets even though we'd asked for it.
4. Besides that, she also did not introduce my coordinator (my sister who is in charge of the flow for the day on behalf of the bride & groom) to the floor manager for the event day even though I had communicated to her earlier plus my coordinator purposely met her 2 days earlier from the event day. Hence, this lead to the floor manager was unaware who was the coordinator during the event. He was difficult to find during the event day and hence during second march in, after the emcee announce our march in, the entrance door was not open and we had to open it ourselves as we couldn't find the floor manager at that point.
5. Other service for the event that were not good was rude waiter, bridal cake was not served to VIP table, wine was not topped up promptly.
However, on the positive note the parking was free and there are lots of space, the arrangement for bridal suite and complimentary room was prepared and ready by the time we checked in. The grand ballroom was very big, spacious and looked elegant with the lighting and decorated tables during the event day. No pillars hence there is good viewing of the slideshows and videos. The hotel has an LED screen right in the middle of the stage where it can be switched on to slide down and switched to slide up when not needed. It is big and clear and not required to have additional projector screen. There was plenty of space at the ballroom foyer during pre-dinner snacks and for guest to mingle around. Not much to say about the food served as it was as per the hotel standard. The advice here is, if extra deco is required perhaps good to outsource on your own as the value of the money will worth more than getting the hotel to do so. Make sure your coordinator are included in your discussion with the planner from the beginning so that if anything does not appear as discussed, you can consult immediately with the hotel.
Hi I think you should give a try on Holiday Inn Glenmarie.Few weeks ago i have attended cousin's wedding there and it's really nice. I was actually partly involved coz was assigned by the bride to be her so called wedding coordinator. The coordination went well with their in house wedding planner. She was really helpful in terms of communicating with her, easy going and really came out with lots of ideas when we were planning on the decorations and stuffs, as well as she's good in terms of handling last minutes unexpected recovery. Dinner time, when I stepped into the ballroom, it really gave me a wow feeling, I was really amaze on how the entire hall is decorated as how we discussed earlier, although it's small just around 25 tables, but it's really really stunning with the entire decoration sori couldn't share any pictures. What amaze me the most is their service, coz normally when I attended those wedding dinner in hotels, well sorry to say their service is really bad. I was amaze by their managers who also hands on to serve the guests on that night, I know they are trying their level best to do their job.. :goodjob: somehow it shows me how difficult working in a hotel is. Food wise, it's normal for a wedding dinner, not too much comment for it but overall it was a great dinner, was running around as well therefore couldn't comment much about food. But however, everyone enjoyed the dinner very much as it's perfectly planned.
