I definitely don’t think that’s necessary. I am not positive, but I am using my nickname throughout our whole ceremony, and will just use my legal name on the certificate. I’m sure you could call the Clerk of Courts and double check, or ask your officiant.

@futuremrswood25:  My DH is a pastor and ordained minister, and I just asked him.  He said you would have to have your legal name on the marriage license itself. However, you would not need to use your legal name during the ceremony.
