civil is the only legal documented needed. It gets signed when you get it by you and your Fiance and then after the ceremony you officiant should present it to you to sign again.

Who signs the marriage license depends on the state.  In some states, only the officiant signs the actual marriage license.  In some states, the bride and groom and witnesses and officiant all sign.

Eitherway, if anyone needs to sign anything, it’s done after the wedding ceremony.  Usually there’s 15 minutes after the guests leave for pictures at the church.  The marriage license is signed then.

There’s no Catholic “paperwork” to sign after the ceremony.  The priest sends a letter to your baptismal parish, but that’s all done behind the scenes.

Its done slightly differently here, we sign during the wedding ceremony before the kiss!
