It sounds like you are going to have to get married at the courthouse or something to make it legal.  It still mattered, you told your commitment to the love of your life.  I’m so sorry!

Your wedding day is when you decide!! I have to get married legally before we leave on our trip because we can’t meet the minimum days requirement, but our anniversary will still be the day we share before all of our friends and family! It’s just a stupid piece of paper, don’t worry 🙂

Oh, that’s terrible!  But look at the bright side, you already pledged your love to each other, you got “married” in front of your family and friends, and now, if MsAB is right, you get to have another “courthouse” wedding!  So put on your wedding garb, grab a bouquet, celebrate together (again) and then go out for a nice romantic dinner!  Have fun!

Oh no!  What did the officiant cross out??

I just got my license and the girl at the counter warned me that if there were any mistakes, we’d have to get the license all over again.

I’d call the county and find out what your options are.

I’m so sorry that happened to you!!!  That totally sucks.  Your wedding day IS your wedding day.  End of story  – no matter what a legal doc says!

Have you spoken to the courthouse? I’m so sorry honey, I hope it can all be sorted out. I would be really upset to. It may be really frustrating and upseting now… but, maybe in the future you will be able to joke about it. I am sure it will be quite the story for your family to hear in the future.

I’m sorry!  At least now you can celebrate two anniversaries!

I consciously work on being a polite person, etc., but I would send such an email to that officiant. If it was an actual officiant and not your pastor or something, I really hope you write reviews for other potential brides-to-be to be very careful when working with this person.

That being said, I would still celebrate your wedding day as your anniversary, even if you have to go to the courthouse. I am sure they are the only ones who can give you a definite answer on what needs to happen next. Good luck sorting through it, and I am sorry you are stuck dealing with it.
