We are having a Destination Wedding to upstate NY (we live outside of Boston) and we’re not planning on getting our marriage license until the day before. I figure we would go in the morning since it has to be 24 hours before the wedding that you get the license.
Anyone else waiting until the last minute on this one?

No. We’re getting it last minute. We’re getting married 1000 miles away, and so will get the license 2 days before the event. Uh, hope that turns out okay!

Eek! We got ours at the 6-week-out mark. It’s good for 3 months, so for us it was one more thing we could check of the (massive) to-do list and feel reassured.
We’re trying to have all the must-haves done, and then go last minute on the nice-to-haves.

We got ours on August 23, fiance got off work early that day and we both had to be there so it worked out good! Ours is good for sixty days

We’re getting ours on Thursday. I didn’t want to wait this long to get it, but somehow it just kept getting pushed aside…which is funny since it’s pretty important.

We got ours the Thursday before the wedding, honestly– it was perfect. We went in during the day when they were completely empty, it took 15 min start to finish, and it was 100% stress free.

Applied in July, picking it up on Friday (can pick up within 30 days of wedding, so we’re pretty close)

We picked ours up exactly one month before the wedding. They are good for 60 days, but you have to wait at least three days after getting it before getting married, so we didnt want to wait too long and forget!

I voted option 2. We don’t have it in our possession techinically, we’re getting married across the country. But it has been applied for and issued, it’s waiting for us at the clerks office! We’re picking it up the 2 days before.
