Other advice

  • As the choice date for solemnisation of marriages may not be available as it had been fully-booked by others, it is advisable to choose alternative dates before you file for your notice of marriage.
  • It is advisable to shop for your wedding rings at least 6 weeks before your wedding date. This will ensure that the jeweller has ample time to re-order the rings that you want, if they were out of stock.
  • Etiquette towards the solemniser
    • 1. Language preference for solemnisation

  • Note that your Solemniser sacrifices personal time and efforts when he/she accepts your invitation to grace your joyous occasion as Guest-of-Honour. As a gesture of appreciation, please ensure that he/she is warmly received, entertained, and reimbursed for transport to and from your wedding venue.
