Having opened just in May this year, The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur has to be one of the most luxurious and newest hotels in the KL scene. This was not only a great opportunity to have the FashionValet Bridal launch event in their lovely rooms, but also have a hotel that’s reputable for its grandiose wedding affairs as a host! Located in the hustle and bustle of KL Sentral, The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur is the perfect spot to tick everything off your wedding’s To-do list, and Angelica Wong, Marketing and Communications Manager at The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur tells us why.
FV: What’s a typical day at work like?
AW: Emails, emails, and more emails! Basically, I need to make sure that all media- and PR-related matters are taken care of and, of course, content- and brand-related issues within the hotel are correctly executed.
FV: What’s the craziest request you ever gotten from a client?
AW: I haven’t had any… Yet! I shall keep you updated if any 🙂
FV: What is the worst thing that has happened at an event?
AW: Out of all the events that I have tended to over the years, I think the worst thing would be having faulty lifts when your event is on a higher level!
FV: What should be a bride’s priority?
AW: Definitely to relax and enjoy the day! Of course, it is easier said than done… But I guess this is where the hotel team’s support comes into play. Together with the bridal party, the hotel will be able to ensure that a wedding runs smoothly without needing the bride to check through all the details.
FV: What’s fun about having a wedding at The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur?
AW: Oh, there are several things to that! The first would have to be our 270-degree seamless digital canvas in the Grand Ballroom. I could not emphasise more on this incredible asset — it is basically 47 LED panels put together around the ballroom! You can transform your wedding into anything, literally! It could be a wedding dinner with a winter wonderland theme, an underwater them etc… Anything is possible.
Besides that, we have The Salon where every bride’s needs are met on her big day — it offers everything from a private bridal dressing room with giant three-way full-length mirrors, a lounge with a 65-inch LED television complete with live feed from the ballroom, a pantry, and an in-built safe.
As we aim to provide convenience of the foremost quality, The Salon is located on the same level as the Grand Ballroom, giving brides easy access throughout the wedding.
For some alone time, brides would also have the luxury of a private changing area, a tall wardrobe for long gowns, and a powder room with a vanity table and oversized mirrors for hair and make-up preparations. Whilst getting ready, a 24-inch in-built screen within the dressing mirror allows the bride to view live feed from the ballroom to still be a part of the programme.
