    thanks for sharing meilingg, i was under the impression that ROM and dinner have to be done together, but i guess that is pretty tiring. because for me, it feels abit funny to invite our friends and relatives for a wedding twice.

    Hi Ladies if you are doing church wedding and does not need the marriage cert to get a house then why not just do church wedding. If you are doing church wedding you dun have to do ROM liao.

    I agree with the saving time and money. and i would be confused about the wedding anniversary date (which to carve on the ring?) and also about inviting people twice.. and i don't see a point inviting friends to "announce" or "celebrate" a wedding that had happened a year ago. so i'm doing it all together -- church wedding and banquet. and.. cannot do both ROM and church wedding, coz both involve signing the marriage cert. only can do either or. guess you have to make a choice!

    well, i guess if u are toking abt wedding anniversary date here, it shld be the ROM date.
    cuz that's the date when the JP announced you and your hubby as husband and wife. =)

    same as me!
    if do both @ a different timing, it will be such a hassle!
    weird also if ROM lerx, but hold wedding dinner at a later timing. (like 1 yr apart or even longer)
    the significance of holding a wedding dinner @ a later timing will be different when 2 people are already "husband and wife" in the eyes of law.

    cuz i thought that dinner is actually more of a chinese customery thingy? bcos u see angmo country where got such ting de.
    im thinking of ROM next yr and dinner maybe a 6months to a yr later bcos can help in budgeting the money.
    bf wan to have a church wedding. but my family alone is 50pax.. think very hard to do it?

    Hi, will need some advice from those who have ROM and wedding on the same day.

    When will you have your ROM?
    Just before the wedding dinner or 1-2 hrs before the dinner?

    i will be holding my ROM and wedding banquet on the same day. i have requested for a room for the solemnization and it will be held at 6.30pm and followed by the dinner. just request from the hotel for the solemnization room and they will give it to you as a complimentary use. usually the ROM will only take about 30mins to 45mins cos its just signing and taking vows and some phototaking. u can invite some of your close friends and relatives to be there during your solemnization.
