Jeanette> Hi and congrets to your big day. Its a bit rush for you ROM date. But not to worry...

I also dun have wedding dinner too... and have simple solemnisation for 18pax only its a sit down lunch in a hotel restaurant.

You can choose pool side solemnisation which normally come with buffet setting and ROM table settings too (PS: everything taken care by the hotel which would be easy for you as your time is a bit running short.)

Of coz you got to book with the hotel if you intend to have it in the hotel.

Since you do not have wedding dinner and if your frnds know that you will not be having wedding dinner next time I think they will give you Ang Pao on your ROM day.. a Ang Pao box is a good idea for that day.. you can ask the hotel to throw in a ang pao box which they hardly will do so cause only wedding dinner they will do that... just tell them you wil not be having wedding dinner so you need one... else can but it off the rack.. very cheap and easy to find one.
yepx... i noe its pretty rush too =X
but no choice.
double happiness

ehhh.... i was thinkin to do it at chevrons/seletar cc. but looks real nice + buffet.
price wise.... is 6000 for 110 ex?

e JP how ar? usually need to invite how many mths/days in advance?

Jeanette> Double Happiness.. got bb??

Dun worry on the rushing part.. got to do things at the normal speed so the head is more clear :p

I dun know how much the usual rate goes for hotel poolside.. wait ah I check it out on the internet..

Your 6000 for 110 pax so per pax is at S$55 (round off) what does it incl besides food (buffet style) ROM table settings?? what happen if its rains?? Thought you say you going for 120pax???

Oh JP ah you have to secure it now lor.. can efile now.

45++ lunch
40++ high tea
48++ dinner

i cant rmbr jus nw chevrons hw much.
but i tink its arnd 5000-6000


New Member
its neva too late...dun wry..u shld still be abit to get someone now...

fitsy, u need to cfm ur venue and timing...hav seen pics of seletar quite nice...can hav ur solemnisation outdoors, then move indoor for meals...

if in e event of rain, they can shift ur solemnisation indoors for u oso...

pricing wise, its rather reasonable la....


New Member
Jeanette> Phew... I check the internet and hotel pools usually range about 50+ for per pax... wonder if they incl free room.. Haha that one you got to check with the hotel cause very long time ago I heard some hotel do if book their ROM Package... thats like so many years ago.

Oh so you have not finalize the no of pax yet la... usually I less about 10-15% of pple who I invite cause got small eaters and kids and some MIA did not come. But it depend on your crowd.
With your no. of pax you can have good price and give discount. S$45 per pax sound ok to me.

Yes if you decided to have your ROM outdoors you got to find your JP. You found one liao?? Oh you also got to confirm your location first cause some JP want to know which location plus when you efile its go to be put in the marriage cert.


New Member
Jeanette> For the location if both you and your partner like it go for it... we also like that first time see our venue than we confirm on the spot

For invites you can start giving out 2 weeks before your ROM date.
okiey okiey...
thanks both ladies

omg. so when i efile e date wil appear on e cert ar? =.="

hotels... we wanted. but decided nt... cuz if we do it there. must well do dinner. but i cant do dinner..
haix... so we'll jus settle for smting outdoor n memorable..
at least no dinner but got nice memory


New Member

New Member
Jeanette> Efile you will need you and your partner's information... 2 witness information.. and JP's Lic no. and also JP name if I am not wrong. Location of your ROM will also appear in your marriage cert.

eg...if u write the whole adddress, it will appear as :

Mr XXX & Mrs XXX were solemnised at

depending on which jp u wan invite...some of them leave email, then u email them lor..but some of them leave tel nos, then u can call them direct...

for mine, i left a msg wif her secretary, and i liased with my jp directly through email and calls.

For us, we call confirm than JP request to drop him a email. After that all is contact via email untill 3days before ROM than we call him to remind him again.
