Get legally married in Orlando! No waiting period required. Then have your ceremony and whatnot in NYC, but you’ll technically already be married!

Get your license tomorrow (in Seattle) and do a small civil ceremony/courthouse wedding on Thursday or Friday (in Seattle) before leaving on your honeymoon!

Then proceed as planned!

I think you are going to be best to do the legal stuff before everything and have the big production later.  You really don’t want to count on a waiver, because what if you don’t get it?

NYC will take MUCH longer than you think to get this stuff that you need… you are better off getting married elsewhere if you’re crunched for time.

I don’t know of this is an option, but get “married” symbolically and then go to the clerks office the next day and get for real married? or like others said, get married legally first.

Get legally married on a different day – no big deal.

Wouldn’t it just be easier to go to the courthouse where you live right now and get the paperwork and legal stuff done?  Then you can go on the honeymoon, then have the ceremony?

@SweetFlower:  There is a 3 day waiting period in Washington, so it would be too late to do that now.

@drusoicy:  Wouldn’t it be more efficient to phone the clerk’s office and ask them?

Clerk’s offices:

My understanding is that the waiver is to waive the 24 hr waiting period after getting the license, not waiving the requirement to get a license She will likely still have to be with you to get the license , then you get the waiver for the waiting period.

Go direct to the source- phone the clerk.

@MrsTVLover:  Darn, that would have made sense a few days ago though!

@drusoicy:  I’ve known of one friend who got the waiver, but she kept the entire day open and it does take some time. With all the stuff that you planned (which sounds crazy awesome by the way) I really would recommend looking into getting married right now, or if you really don’t mind, wait until after your wedding festivities! It looks like you have a very difficult schedule to work with so I’m having trouble seeing where you can move stuff.
