Bublé

Michael Steven Bublé is a Canadian crooner who became well-known internationally after the release of his album, "It's Time" in year 2005.

In March 2011, Michael Buble married young and gorgeous Argentine actress/ model Luisana Lopilato. They had their wedding ceremony at a mansion in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Luisana looked absolutely stunning in the wedding gown designed by Sylvie Burstin. Her tall, slim yet busty figure pulled off the Argentinian flavored dress perfectly. 

The couple also celebrated their nuptials in the groom's homeland with 500 of their closest family and friends. The wedding was held at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver, Canada. This time the bride wore a dress by Argentinian designer Jorge Ibañez.

He co-wrote the hit single "Haven't Met You Yet" for his then girlfriend Luisana and she also appeared in the song's music video.

He was invited to sing at the wedding of Canada's former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney's daughter Caroline in 2000. Michael sang the song "Mack the Knife" composed by Kurt Weill at the wedding. However his wife asked him not to sing on their big day. Some of my pick which can be your wedding tunes are listed below.
  1. Everything - This is a fun song

Song For You - Lyric
I've been so many places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs, I've made some bad rhyme
I've acted out my life in stages with ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you
I know your image of me is what I hope to be, I've treated you unkindly
But girl can't you see, there's no one more important to me
So darling can't you please see through me, 'cause we're alone now
And I'm singing my song for you, you taught me precious secrets
The truth with holding nothing, you came out in front
And I was hiding, oh, but now I'm so much better,
So if my words don't come together, listen to the melody
'Cause my love is in there hiding
I love you in a place where there is no space or time, I love you for my life
You are a friend of mine, and when my life is over
Remember, remember, remember when we were together
And we are alone now, and I was singing this song to you
We were alone, and I was singing, yeah singing
We were alone, and I was singing this song for you
Singing my song, I'm singing my song for you

The renovated lounge reflects a new modern yet elegant design that is influenced by geometric shapes

When guests enter the lobby, they will be welcomed by two redesigned grand entrance doors that replaced the previous four-door model. A sense of arrival will be created as guests draw focus to the spectacular chandelier comprised of thousands of high quality crystals cascades down 4.5 meters from the ceiling giving the illusion of floating jewels. The chandelier is surrounded by four main columns encased in gleaming silver rods with a stunning black forest marble covering the bottom 1.8 meter area. Dark wood panels form a backdrop behind the reception area and a stretched rhombus pattern takes a 3D shape to add dimension and a unique art feel.

Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur. Price: RM2199++
Pro: High ceiling with no pillar, no minimum table requirement, spacious cocktail area, newly refurnished ball room.
Con: No romantic LED lights (only yellow warm lights), ballroom wall is a bit woody and too yellowish, small budget for floral arrangement (which means you need to top up more for nicer floral deco)

The wedding dinner took place at InterContinental Hotel KL, and the food was prepared by the Chinese restaurant Toh Lee. I enjoyed majority of the dishes served but special praises must be sung for the Roasted Duck and Steamed Cod fish! It’s not very often that we get to eat duck on wedding dinners and this was roasted to a marvelous crispiness that didn’t remove the moisture from the flesh. On the other hand, the cod was served in a very generous portion, with silky smooth flesh that almost melted in my mouth. Thumbs-up!

Positive reviews: Nice foyer. Victorian Ballroom is the best ballroom. The entrance was nice. The garden is beautiful with Victorian vintage style. Victorian ballroom is excellent and classy with majestic chandeliers and hand painted ceilings overlooking a lake. there is a garden with Victorian statues and decor leading to the ballroom, where the pre-dinner cocktail is held. Jaw-dropping beautiful!

Negative reviews: The hotel front desk, parking lot look horrible. Food is normal. service with "take it or leave it" mentality! Sound system can be annoyingly loud. Watch out for mosquito. Low ceiling.


Rating: 5/7 (71%)
skye @ Jan 2012: One thing i didnt choose this place for my wedding last year was because of the whole ambience. Other than the ballroom the rest like hotel's front desk, parking looks absolutely horrible for a hotel status. Driving in, i see lots of toilet bowl at the carpark area (not sure if its still there or not after so long but i heard it was there for a long while) BAD
daniel @ Jan 2012: Our 6 bands perform very regularly there for Weddings...so let me add some comments.
- The food is the usual hotel fare. Nothing surprising or amazing. As you know...the usual.
- Service is average...and they have that 'take it or leave it' mentality towards wedding couples. Ouch!
- The ambiance is perhaps its strongest point. Nice foyer...but watch out for the nyamuk2!
- Sound System is loud but can be annoyingly loud. Perhaps it depends on who the technician is on duty that day. 
BAD
nadia @ Nov 2011: Victorian Ballroom - This is the best ballroom I've ever been to! sangat cantik+ada garden tepi ballroom tu which they'll block for ur event. The ballroom itself can fit in 390pax at a time, but they'll give u Victorian 2 as well which can fit 100guests. Even the garden/courtyard boleh letak guest tables! So I think Victorian ballroom+courtyard+Victorian 2 can fit approximately 600pax. Just nice for a buffet-style reception like mine!! Cantiknyaaa. *nangis* The entrance best woh!! Boleh buat theme Greek Goddess terus :p And guess what! The garden pun sangat cantik! Its very victorian style+ala2 vintage gitu. GOOD
sassy_chiq @ Apr 2011: Yeahh Holiday Villa Subang is nice. EQ is nto bad after deco but my vote goes to Holiday Villa Subang! :) GOOD
skye @ Apr 2011: Didnt like holiday villa's parking area and low ceiling ballroom tho ... but for the price consider not bad already GOOD
daniel @ Apr 2011: HOliday Villa's Victorian Ballroom is excellent. GOOD
evelynn85 @ Jan 2011: Can i suggest to both of you holiday villa at subang?they have a Victorian ballroom which is very classy and their price is 1188++ per table.their can provide those facilities you mentioned above. they have 6-8 grand majestic chandeliers and all hand painted ceilings overlooking a lake.the layout of their ballroom is very nice. the ballroom has its space on its own. your ballroom starts from a main gate. its like a secret garden with archway and garden plants and a victorian statue. from there they will light tealights for you along the way till you enter the ballroom. then you will come to a victorian porch/garden where you can have precoctails there. then from there beside is the main ballroom. when i went over to that place my jaw totally dropped. its soo beautiful. GOOD

Shangri-La KL 1000+ Seater Grand Ballroom

Nestled in the heart of the city, Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur is just a short distance from the city's busiest business, shopping and entertainment district. The hotel offers strategic views of the Petronas Twin Towers and Kuala Lumpur Tower.

Get ready to be mesmerized by the great ambiance of the newly renovated (in 2017) luxurious and pillarless Grand Ballroom with three crystal chandeliers adorning its ceiling and a huge space.

Most ideal for wedding dinners, good location, ballroom that fits 1000 pax, impeccable food! Servicing staff needs more training, mostly foreign waiting staff, didn't quite understand English very well. Overall, still the best wedding venue

Best wedding I've ever attended was my friend's wedding at Shangri-La KL. Great food, great deco and everything. and the best part was this friend did reserved the best table for all her closest friends.

I've just attended a wedding at Shangrila where the venue is transformed into a mesmerizing, dreamy candlelight dinner for 60 tables. Instead of just round tables, the bride and groom put their friends in long tables, which was a great way to save space. Every table was adorned with fresh purple and pink roses. The wedding favor for all the guests was an unusual choice but fits the dreamy theme - incense.

I attended a wedding banquet at Shangrila and the experience was mediocre I must say. Food is ok, ambiance is abit shabby. But it wasn't up to my expectations.

My husband and I had our wedding reception here on a sunday and the service was impeccable! We stayed in the honeymoon suite for 4 nights and it was absolutely delightful.
we can only say we had the best service and the organisers were very helpful and gave us an upgrade for the projector size due to the fact that we were staying there for the weekend. the food served was EXCEPTIONAL and they did not scrimp on the ingredients when we made a comment about not scrimping on the trimmings during the food tasting/rehearsal dinner. Definitely will recommend it for any function!
