So you've secured a date and venue for your perfect solemnisation. What's next? Don't forget about your Justice of Peace! A good time frame to engage them is about 3 months before your ROM date.

While the Registry of Marriages provides a long list of licensed solemnisers (literally hundreds) for your reference, the officiant you engage will make a big difference to your ceremony, so choose wisely. Make sure they have a clean track record for punctuality, good diction, eloquence and can make the crowd laugh.

Researching on forums or getting recommendations from friends are always great to have an idea of what to expect from your officiant. Here are 10 recommended on various blogs and Bridestory's real wedding couples.
