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 go to the Registry of Marriages.
  • 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.
