||Where can I solemnize my marriage?
Choose to solemnize your marriage outside the ROM where there are no restrictions on how you want to
customize your wedding plans of a lifetime.
Basic solemnization services are available at the ROM premises subject to availability on a first-come-first-serve basis.
||What the perks of marrying outside the ROM ?
You will be spoilt for choice for venue, eg. under water amidst swimming fishes, by the
starry moonlit night, by a beach or garden, at scenic spots such as Mount Faber or Botanic
Gardens, by your condominium poolside, or simply the comfort and convenience of home.
You are not restricted in the number of guests you want to bring. Very importantly, you
will enjoy exclusivity - the wedding environment is all to your own and there are no other
bridal couples vying for the attention of your well wishers. You save time and effort too,
by combining civil (solemnization), religious and customary ceremonies 3-in-1. You will,
without doubt also enjoy the dedicated attention of your Solemnizer and solemnization in
||How do I go about getting married outside the ROM?
Follow these steps:
||Decide on and confirm the solemnization date, time and venue.
||Click here to go to 'List of Licensed Solemnizers'.
||3-4 months (and not earlier) before the solemnization date, contact a solemnizer (choose one from within your constituency/postal district). Tell him about your marriage details such as plan, venue, date, time.
||Click here to download a 'Solemnizer Consent Form'.
||Meet and obtain your solemnizer’s signature on the consent form.
For contingency reasons, always ask your solemnizer for the name and contact
number of his/her buddy solemnizer.
||Click here to go to 'File Notice of Marriage'.

Office), Religious Leaders, Grassroots Leaders and other respected persons appointed

||What courtesies should I extend to my solemnizer?
Your solemnizer is a volunteer and not an employee of the Ministry. He is a community leader
who sacrifices personal time and effort, to meet you for consent signing and then to officiate at your
wedding. Please extend your respect and courtesy to him as you would for your guests.
Remember to discuss and seek his views on your solemnization plans. Please be punctual for the
solemnization (note: your solemnizer may leave the marriage venue after 30 minutes if there is
no prior notice given for delay). Please also arrange valet parking or complimentary parking for
him as well as a host to accompany him. You may invite him to your wedding reception but do not forget
to thank him and reimburse him for transport (the guideline for transport is between $50 and $100).
