And do you plan to do anything fancy with it after the ceremony?
We’re going to get ours March 28th I think. Gives us ample time since it’s only a 15 minute process :p DF is military and has drill, our bachlor/ette parties, my fitting, he’s out of town for 2 weeks…yada yada. So March 28th is actually kind of risky LOL, but it works.
I smiled sooo big when I realized it’s almost time to start the little things like that 🙂
How is everyone holding up?

We have to have ours for 72 hrs before the ceremony, but can’t get it until 30 days before. I live in a different state, and he is working overseas a lot in the next two months.
So we’re going to have to pick a day when he’s back in the country, to take off work and school, and drive the 4.5 hours to meet in the middle and pick up a license. HASSLE, lol!!
I think our officiant hands in our license, and then we get a certificate in the mail. It’s gonna go in our legal folder and probably never be seen again. I’m not into framing certificates or vows, etc… I’ll save all my frames for pics of my handsome new husband!! 🙂

We are going a few weeks ahead of time. I am a little worried that it might not go smoothly because my FI was born in Argentina, and his birth certificate is in another language. Hopefully it won’t be an issue, but I want to give us a little time, in case it is.

We picked ours up about a month and a half before our wedding date.

- Wedding: April 2011 - The Tribute Golf Club
In Texas, it’s only good for 30 days, with at least a 72 hour waiting period (which can be waived for people in the military or who take a marriage class). We probably won’t get ours until the 1st or 2nd week of April.

We’re grabbing ours in a couple of weeks. We’re legally getting married on March 28, so I figure that will give us ample time in case something comes up.

probably middle of March… we found the price of the license varies enormously around here with our town (of course) being the most expensive so we are going to a nearby town when we have a chance.

We’re getting married in DC and live out of state, so our officiant is being a wonderful dear and handling the entire marriage license process for us.

We got ours the day before we were married 😛
In Louisana they waive the 72 hour waiting period if neither party is a resident of the state.

In MA we need to get the license at least 3 days ahead of time and it’s good for 90 days when we do get it…but to make sure there’s enough time and everything, I think we’ll apply for it sometime in March.
