I’m not sure what  I wonder if we can do marriage license and the “wedding” itself on the same day…means .  Is not getting your marriage license the same thing as getting married?  It isn’t a big wedding party/ceremony sort of thing, but it is getting married isn’t it?

The destination ‘wedding’ is not when you will get married, you already will be, so it doesn’t really matter when you hold it,  as it is just a nice big celebration and not an actual marriage ceremony.       I do hope  it all works out anyway .

elderberry :  Getting your marriage license is just getting “permission” from the county to get married. Getting married is a whole other thing. We already have our marriage license but we are getting married tomorrow, it requires an officiant or judge or justice of the peace. You’re only legally married after a marriage license is signed by one of those entities proclaiming they performed a marriage.

I am unsure about Canada but in the US we have to wait 72 Hours – 3 Days before the license is usable. I hope for your case it’s differerent in Canada. I also know there are ways to waive that waiting period but I am unsure what they may be. We got our marriage license before this all got crazy but the courthouses aren’t open and groups of people can be fined now. I am crossing my fingers our officiant may be willing to marry us on our original date so we can legally be married. 

 

Good Luck! Maybe by May this will be starting to calm down and the courts will reopen?
