Good Morning Ladies, I did a civil (legal) ceremony and prior to our wedding I was nervous our marriage certificate wouldnâ€t be accepted by the state. I had read many mixed reviews online and in these forums about other brides†certificates not being accepted and as a result they had to also get married at their local courthouse. Just thought Iâ€d let everyone know I successfully changed my last name yesterday with the Social Security Office and my local DMV; no marriage at our local courthouse needed. Both offices were able to verify the certificate was valid and authentic. Hope this helps if anyone is on the fence with having a civil/legal ceremony. Stacie
Hi Stacie, Thanks for all your help so far and fir a peek of your wonderful pictures. H2B and I are hoping to do a legal ceremony also. We are coming from the uk, although I assume the paperwork necessary is the same? Please advise - we have been told we need the following: Birth Certs (only needs to be apostilled if we want our parents names on marriage cert so we were not going to bother as I don't even know where to begin with that malarkey!) Passport (+ copies) Visa entry forms. Also, was the blood work highly stressful? That is what is worrying me! How long does that take etc? Thanks again for all your help - you looked truly beautiful and congratulations again, Xx

Hi there! I'm not certain if the paperwork is different for residents of the UK, but I would think its the same.

 

We brought with us our birth certificates and passports. We also didn't mess with the apostille thing and we didn't need visas. But maybe you're referring to the form they give you at the airport or an actual visa you need for some countries prior to your departure?

 

When you meet with your coordinator, you will need to have your witnesses with you and they need to have their passports with them as well. Your WC will make copies of their passports. During the ceremony you sign your name on your marriage certificate, as does your spouse and then each of your witnesses. Also, witnesses must be 18 or older.

 

I'm a big-time chicken so I hated the blood work :). It literally took 10 seconds, but I hate needles so I acted like a baby. My husband was fine though.

 

Thank you for the kind words :).

 

Congratulations!

 

Stacie

I need some advice, The best Man just dropped some news, they are expecting. She is due in April and our Wedding date in May 14th. She had complications with her first one, so there is a chance that he may not make it. Do we switch the date, or continue?

Iâ€m sorry Bella, that is probably beyond frustrating for you. On one hand you want to be happy for the couple, on the other hand youâ€re trying to plan a wedding. That is a really tough decision. Iâ€m curious what other brides will say, but I think you should press on. Thereâ€s no telling when sheâ€s going to deliver the baby so I donâ€t think you should try and plan your wedding date around that. I think if the best man isnâ€t able to make the wedding, you could have a sweet way of honoring him (somehow, just thinking off the top of my head) at the ceremony/reception. What is your fiancé saying, leaning towards since itâ€s his best man?

I agree!  I would also carry on with the wedding planning/wedding date.  I would suggest you talk it over with the couple (Best Man and Mother to be) so everything is out in the open and everyone is on the same page...GOOD LUCK!
