In search of JP/ Solemnizer

Hi hi! I’m here to share about our search for Justice of Peace / Solemnizer. Initially I thought we could just go to the ROM website and randomly select any JP because there are tons to choose from!

But one day I met up with an old friend, Z for lunch. He is getting married this September and he told me it’s very late to choose a solemnizer now because all the good ones are already taken. I was like “huh is there such thing as good or bad solemnizer??”

A simple google search tells me, yes of course there is. /:

I guess a good solemnizer helps the couple stay calm, is a crowd pleaser, knows how to say nice things at the right time, etc.

So yes being a kiasu Singaporean I also went to contact all the “good” solemnizers based on my research – from forums and blogs.

Tip: when contacting solemnizer, be sure to state the Date, Time and Venue of solemnization so that he/ she can immediately check his/ her availability.

Nobody told me it was THIS hard to find a solemnizer!! T_T

So far I have sent emails to 23 (all listed below) but none of them were able to make it. Oh my goodness I am going crazy! I have 2 other couple friends, G & J and K & H getting married in September as well, coincidentally on the same day. And both couples have found their JP. Sob sob.

I hereby delegate this noble task to Dennis. ūüėõ Thanks baby you continue from here okay!
