One thing you must do before the wedding
Your marriage license may be one of the less exciting parts of planning your wedding, but it's important to look into the requirements early.
Check with the County Clerk in the county in which you will be married to learn more about getting a license in that area. They should also be able to tell you about any additional requirements or limitations of the license.
Many states require both birth certificates be presented in order to issue a marriage license, so make sure you have them handy in case you need to show them to the Clerk.
