Planning for a wedding, reception and honeymoon all at the same time can overwhelm anyone. If you’ve too much on your plate, you could miss out on essential details—such as how to get your marriage license. Here are a few things to make sure you stay on top of things and get your license in time for the wedding:
Pick a spot
Where do you see yourself tying the knot? Whether you want it at the beach, courthouse or your garden at home will influence the kind of state and country rules you’ll need to comply with before you can get your license.
Get your documents ready
The Bridal Guide says you’ll need certain documents and identification to get your marriage license. Don’t leave the house without them. Keep a checklist of the requirements to make it easy for you to keep track of them. These will likely include your birth certificate, driver’s license and your social security card, among others.
Shop for packages
If you haven’t got a lot of time in your hands to look over every detail and do a ton of research, then you might want to simply opt for the simplicity and convenience of a wedding package. Some wedding packages already offer all the services you need, from getting your license to setting up a wonderful reception for you and a small number of your friends and family.
License after the wedding
After the wedding, you’ll need to ask someone to take the license back to the country clerk’s office. You can do this on your own too but if you’re going on your honeymoon and pressed for time, you can ask someone else to do it for you. Or simply opt for a wedding package that includes this service.
With the right wedding package, getting your license and tying the knot is a whole lot easier. So shop for one as soon as you can.
