ROM – Marriage Registration

rif and I were told that we would need to spend about RM7,000 if we want to have the ROM in my house garden. That’s way too expensive as we’re only prepared to pay RM1,500 for the ROM!

It’s going to be a small do with our closest friends and family (40-50 people). The RM7,000 includes flowers, food & beverage and a small tent just in case the weather god decides to give us a wedding shower.

I’m thinking of this type of flower deco for my ROM…(hopefully it’s economical) :)

 


We discussed this with a few friends and worked out a reasonable cost for an ROM party. Assuming we serve some light refreshments/brunch (RM30-35 per pax), it should only cost us RM1,200 (RM1,500 max). I doubt we can afford to make it an alcoholic ROM, although I would love for it to be one.

We also realized that choosing a bare venue (like my garden) would require more work and money to dress the place up. It’s a different scenario if we opt for a hotel ROM, as the package would already include decorations. I’ve emailed a few hotels and restaurants, and am currently waiting for them to revert with their packages.

At the rate this goes, I’m worried we won’t be able to have the ROM we want, as our tight budget does not permit. But I can’t stand the thought of going to Putrajaya to register our marriage…

Anyone has a solution for this? Good venue suggestions maybe? I would love a garden/poolside ROM.
