@ashizzzle:  In the military world this is done allllll the time. Like, just about everyone I know has done this, including me! We had a courthouse wedding May of 2012, big wedding, ceremony, 200+ guest list, the whole shabang happening this fall. No one even batted an eye. I you’re afraid that people will think you’re stupid or won’t come, you’re wrong. Everyone is just as excited for the October wedding.

Can’t you just have a friend get ordained online? It seems a lot easier than having two weddings.

This area is a relatively large metro area.  If I look up county judges online there is link to “judges that perform marriages”  Then there is a comment area. Some of they perform them 7 days a week, some say courthouse only 9-4:30 by appt, some say they take credit cards, some speak spanish, ukranian, or french.  

So, I’d give your courthouse a call and see if any judges perform ceremonies outside of the courthouse.

I’m not from MN or NE but it appears many government/local judicial webistes have similar info.
