    Rolleyes How to conduct "fake" solemnization?

    Hi girls...

    I'm planning to hold my actual wedding and solemnization at Grand Copthorne Waterfront, and have the solemnization ceremony in the outdoor gazebo followed by dinner in one of the ballrooms or function rooms (small event..only about 50 pax). The problem is that I do not need to have an official ROM because we already have a marriage license overseas which is recognized in Singapore. But I don't want to miss out on an actual ceremony, y'know...exchange vows, rings and all that. I don't suppose we need to sign anything, but leaving that part of the ceremony out might seem strange to the guests. I cannot be explaining it to 50 people!

    Any good ideas on how to do this successfully and elegantly?

    Also, anyone had the solemnization at GWC outdoor gazebo? When did you have it? Afternoon or evening, or when it is completely dark out?

    Thanks!

    i advise dont have it in the evening or at night. the pictures i got from a friend's wedding held at night was bad, could hardly see anyone's faces and expressions. anyway, you can just sign the certificate of marriage so 'officiate' it, or so that it looks more 'official', just for props. then have a simple lunch or dinner. hope this helps!

    I agree. Do it when during daytime. A simple lunch or dinner will suffice.

    It doesn't sound so much a "fake" solemnization, but a ceremony with exchanging of vows -which is important in its own right. The legal part of the ceremony isn't the only important part of the ceremony, because standing up in front of your loved ones and declaring your commitment is something significant in its own right.

    I think it's fine to do the ceremonial parts alone (without the legal parts). Just do the ceremony as usual and skip the signing of papers. I doubt anybody will question that.
