We did this for ours. We just had our officiant sign our marriage license then the next day at our day after brunch we made a copy at his house. Or you can get your marriage license then make a copy beforehand and just have your officiant sign both and keep the real one.

I didn’t even know this.  Interesting.  I’ll have to keep this in mind.

In ontario there was a little certificate that we got on the wedding day it wasn’t the official certificate but it was good enough for the honeymoon.

Check with your officiant but this will probably be the same for you.

@Anxiouspeanut: we couldnt. Our officiant mailed it back to the courthouse after our wedding and then we got it in the mail a few weeks later

So I just got married in BC and we wanted something for Mexico to prove we were married. You can actually just ask your officiant for an “unofficial” marriage certificate. Our marriage commissioner gave us one that she signed and it’s on official government of BC letter head. No one had a problem accepting this even though it wasn’t our real certificate.
