Mr TTR & I married in Florida, where Witnesses are not required.

Actually Florida is probably one of the easiest places in the USA to get married.

We had a wedding coordinator so our witnesses were her and her daughter. Otherwise I would have been quite happy to ask our photographer or a stranger.

Neither. We learned we needed two that morning when we got the licence, so we just hunted for them during the day (our hotelier and his wife stepped up) and were all ready to go that afternoon for the ceremony and signing of the registery.

@ontbride:

Plan A was to ask H’s parents (who had to make an 800 mile road trip)

Plan B was to use the photographer and her second shooter or wedding planner

No witnesses needed in PA either!  It was us, the officiant and the photographer

We have to have a witness for our upcoming elopement (california) you can do a totally private one but it will be a lot harder to request marriage records in the future if you ever need them.

We hired a photographer for the day and she is going to act as our witness. This way we are keeping the number of people involved to a bare minimum (the mister and I, the officiant, and the photographer) but also still not have to deal with any hassles as far as our records go because we are planning to move overseas.

Other than the officiant and the photographer none of our family or friends will be there because PA does not require a “witness” for the ceremony. The only thing that kind of annoys me is we have to wait 72 hours after applying for a marriage license to get married.

Our photographer has offered to be our one witness, we don’t need more than one.
