Before you get married, did you know that you HAVE to file your notice of marriage?

The earliest that you can file is 3 months before your intended day and latest is 21 days before your marriage. Any later? HO SEY.

Head over to the Registry of Marriage online to file online. Prepare the following items:

- 20 minutes of your time
- NRICs (for citizens) / Passports (for non-citizens) of groom, bride and two adult witnesses
- Duly completed Solemnizer Consent Form (Remember my previous post on looking for a JP?
- Credit card (Do take note that you'll have to pay a small fee!)

You'll be given a date where you'll have to head over to the Registry of Marriage to verify your details.

Remember to bring the signed Solemniser Consent Form, ICs (photocopied ICs of your witnesses are fine) of all (Bride, Groom, Witnesses) and your filing instructions.

Get a queue number and wait. As you can see from my ticket above, the waiting time is about 45 mins. Highly advisable to take half day leave :p

Once your number is called, you'll be asked to verify your details and take an oath. Yes, sumpah. Both the hubs and I were surprised we had to take an Oath (shows that we didn't do enough research) and was caught offguard.

Once it's done, you'll be given your wedding cert and a photocopied one.

DO TAKE NOTE that ONLY your JP will sign on the wedding cert. You, your hubs and your witnesses will sign on the photocopied cert. Also, take note that only black ink pens are allowed. (At that time, I was wondering if my engraved Parker pens were black ink. If it was blue, I would have bang head on the wall)

And there you go! You've done it!

All you'll have to do is: bring the original ICs of the parties involved on the day itself. Also, it would be best to call or text your JP a gentle reminder about your solemnisation details.

And it's time to rock on roll on the day!

Wedding vows, rings and ta-dah! You're married! But of course, do not forget to present a token of appreciation to your JP for taking the time to come down to your venue. (assuming you are doing it in an outdoor venue). A token amount between $50 - $100 is considered reasonable.

Most of all, have fun!

It was such a headache for me searching for a Justice of Peace (or solemniser) for my ROM. I had read websites and wedding forums that states most JPs only accept booking 3 months before the ROM date and I had foolishly followed suit.

JENG JENG. 3 months before my ROM, I had searched for a JP and ALL of the popular ones were taken up. I didn't want ANY solemniser because I wanted to make sure the solemniser can speak in English, is funny/jovial enough to lighten the mood. You can randomly search for any JP located near your area if you like.

I have read reviews where certain solemnisers preached and totally spoilt the mood. Some are really tardy and turn up so late that everyone was exasperated waiting for them. I had read that one solemniser even shared Buddhist teachings during the ceremony! I didn't that was appropriate with my Muslim parents :p

The top 5 most popular solemnisers in Singapore are:

Dr Phua Tan Tee (He solemnised my sister-in-law's ROM and was very funny! Very loving grandpa feel)
(t) +65 6753 1028
(e) Phua_Tan_Tee@NEA.GOV.SG

Mr Tan Kian Hoon
(t) +65 6221 8288

Assoc Prof Yu Shi Ming
(t) +65 6467 2092
(e) sdeyusm@nus.edu.sg

Mr Sim Khee Wang
(t) +65 6563 6081
(e) simontco@gmail.com

Mr Lee Keok Boon Peter (He solemnised my friend Charlie's wedding. Youngish and made a lot of funny jokes. He was my first choice actually)
(t) +65 9791 0598
(e) Peter_Lee@moh.gov.sg

Unfortunately all were taken up. Grrr all of you bridezillas!

Then began the search for the JP. I read countless of reviews and contacted everyone but most replied they weren't free. One had a PASSION Run the same day, the other said okay but later mentioned he double-booked himself. GG.

In the end, I found Mr Koh Kok Weng (t)+65 9630 1728.

It was very comfy talking to him. He was funny, humorous and most importantly, he was creative. He encouraged us to write our own vows which we did ! (Share with you guys once the video is ready)

What do you need to do when contacting your intended JP?

Email, sms or call him/her. Share with your intended JP your wedding details: Date, time and venue and check with him/her if they are available.

If they are, CONGRATS! You've found an available JP.

Print out the Solemniser Consent Form and get your JP to sign. You can either fax it over to them or meet in person. Mr Koh himself preferred to meet in person and we wanted that too!

Also take note to ask for his/her buddy Solemniser contact details. Incase you damn suay (*touch wood*), your intended JP can't make it due to an emergency, at least you'll have a backup plan.

Once the form is signed, it's time to file your notice of marriage! And that, I'll leave it to another post. 😉

As some of you guys may have read my previous post, i have recently joined Shunji Matsuo 313 as their latest blogger ambassador! Yay!

I had my hair coloured by the talented Master Stylist Eddie Yan and he gave me strict instructions to visit him on the week of my ROM to get my roots touched up.

This time, I brought my fiance (at that time la. Lol) with me as I wanted Eddie to dye and cut his hair! Ching Chong Boy usually gets his hair cut at $10 shops and i highly disapproved of him doing so for our ROM! >.<

Eddie took one look at my hair and decided to recolour it slightly to tone the yellowness down.

He decided to dye my hair cool ash by Matrix. I LOVE the colour! The previous colour was a bit bright for me and many of my colleagues had exclaimed at it when they saw me 😡

He also decided to do treatment for my hair. (Background info: my hair is very the damaged after last year's back to back perm and rebonding which is also the reason why Eddie refuses to dye my hair ombre till my hair condition is much better. *sheepish look* i gotta admit, before i met Eddie, i haven't been going for much treatments. Oops)

This time, we decided to try this Organic treatment for my hair.
