legal wedding in nj
Posted 09 April 2008 - 10:10 PM
so for those married in nj- besides the witness needed for the marriage liscensce, do we need witnesses at the actual legal ceremony?
our parents know we're doing this, but as far as the little ceremony part we want it to be just the two of us. is this doable?
sorry if this doesn't make sense, i'm not all that familiar with this stuff as i haven't been married before hah

we had my parents and sister, his parents, brother and bro's stupid-ass girlfriend. my sis and his bro were witnesses. needs to be someone who has known you for more than 6 months and can't think of a reason that you shouldn't be married.
we did NOT regard it as the real wedding date. we all went for lunch after and that was it. we wore our wedding bands that day and then took them off, and didn't tell too many people (tho now that we're married, it slips out more often).
where do you live? i can be your witness

You have to have 1 witness present when applying for the marriage license and 2 witnesses present at your legal ceremony in NJ.
To make things simple, we had my mom be the witness at the application signing. She's cool about not being at the civil ceremony because, like us, she doesnt consider it "The Wedding" . She was married in court as well so she knows the drill lol. The white dress and suits are where its at
For the civil ceremony, we will have my brother and FI's sister be our witnesses.
