Not sure how many Ontario brides would benefit, but I did find this article.

Interesting article.  Thanks!  It's odd that the discrepancy even exits but I guess different municipalities have different overhead costs? 

By the time I add the gas to drive to some of these locations that are further out, I'm sure it all evens out!  ;)

@veryvalentine yea, very true. It's not too bad for me, we visit my parents in the east end pretty often. We're going to goto City Of Oshawa to acquire ours. It's a huge difference from where we live (Markham).

@perianjay Thanks! I knew I'd seen that article before somewhere...

My sister lives in Brock Township. Looks like I'll need to visit her to get my marriage license for only $75  :D


EDIT - I take it back! I followed the link in the article to the Brock Township website and they've increased the cost of a marriage license to $100 

 

Maybe the article in The Star made them realize they could get away with charging more  :P

@krystalball no worries! haha.. I actually googled where Brock is to see because it's literally half the price compared to where I live in Markham. It would almost be worth the drive.

Durham region is really good for pricing as well and I wouldn't have to make any out of the way trips since it's in the same general region as my parent's house.

@perianjay Thanks for the Info, I will definitely pass it on...

 

I'm actually doing my legal ceremony in Newfoundland this summer ....Licence cost $50.00 no matter where in NL you do it...I'm currently looking  up the fee for the Officiant, and just reading through the licence application...

@Meandhim wow! that's a great price. I haven't even figured out the officiant yet, but my parents think Chester and I should do it in their home.

@perianjay That's a great idea!

 

I'm going to do it in my parents back yard or on the dock or in the living room if its raining...lol! Going to have a little BBQ afterwards...I think by having it at home you avoid the fee for a room rental at the city...I have to check into it further tho...I find this part so confusing!

@Meandhim my parent's have a priest that lives accross the street. They keep saying we should hire him lol.

What time of year are you doing yours? I think ours will be too cold for anything outdoors. Our plan is to marry on November 11. There's kind of a specific reason for the date so it kind of sucks that it's on a weeknight, but ah well.

@perianjay

 

A priest right across the street sounds convenient to me!! 

 

I'm doing mine in July 25...lol...so I'll be legally married 4 months exactly before the Punta Cana Wedding date.

 

We were going to do it April 1 on what we had planned to be our wedding date...but then we decided to do it at home so My Nan could go...plus we had already planned on going home in July so why not just do it then.

 

We picked July 25th because it's the only day we have free while we are there...lol
