juz happ to pass by this link.. I had my ROM last Dec.. it was an outdoor venue at SAF Yacht Club (Tanah Merah).. all my guests loved the place.. the pics also turned out nice.. atmosphere was romantic.. also we got to arrive in a small yacht
Our solemnizer was Rev Stephen Cheng.. very nice person.. was very patient & smiling.. eventhough we were late! hehe
Can I quickly ask, what are the criterias that you use to select your JPs?
Personally, I need the JP to be able to speak proper English. I don't even need him to be super humourous or anything but I remember being appalled at a friend's ROM ceremony because the JP spoke very bad English and most of the audience were giggling (including me!).
Mr Chia Ti Yu sounds like a decent bet. Any other can-speak-good-English JPs to recommend pls?
My AD is on 22 May 09 (Fri) so I'm starting my research now. Hehe.
ANybody can share me which part of national library for the ROM and what is the charges? I visited the website, can't see anything about ROM. I really need urgently as still hunting for outdoor venue for ROM at the same time want to do tea ceremony. Pls advise thanks
Hi flowerbride, you faced the same situation as me. my flat is here, and i need to ROM soon. haha.
Anyway, i have a few hotel/ restaurant ROM list on hand, any particular one you are looking at? I can email you.
And for me, i'm holding my ROM at Seletar country club.
Look for your JP!! i got Prof Yu.
Pult to sky> Congrets to you. If you have your date already its easy to work with. About 6mths before your ROM date you can start looking for which JP you like and than start reading threads of JP. Than you can start email the JP see if they are avail for your ROM date. But take note that some JP will only ask you to check back with them 3 mths before your ROM date.
Akaihayate> Hi JP or solemniser do not charge for ROM event. Is a gesture of appreciation, that one is to reimburse the Solemniser for transport costs incurred to officiate at your wedding. The reimbursement guideline is $28 to $48 according the ROM website. We paid S$50 in a AP.
hi everyone... i was quite disappointed. JP asked me to call back 3 mths b4 my ROM date to confirmed but told me tat he would not ve agreed to me if he noe it is a Sun... but he did note down the date tentatively rite... i'll be holding my solemnisation in 3mths time n i need to look for another one now...
Anyone know of any JP who is bilingual? How about this Mr Chia Ti Yu? think he is gd from the gd comments given... need advise badly...
National Library apparently is just the venue alone could anyone provide the details of the rest of the things as a package ie. food caterers, deco, tables,etc. if they have done something like this before am just looking at 10 - 15 pax for ROM & solemenization

very nice guy...and accomodating...v friendly
i chg my timeslot numerous times but he was v patient and even assured me it's ok.
