- Wedding: December 1969
I just got married in Chicago and received my official marriage certificate. It’s hideous! It’s a very ugly beaurocratic form. I was very disappointed because I had intended to frame it. I just learned that if you want a "souvenir certificate" (aka a pretty one that you can frame) you have to purchase it beforehand and bring it to the ceremony. The city does not provide these so you have to buy it from a private company. I just googled "souvenir marriage certificate" and found a bunch of places that sell them. Now I am kicking myself for not having known this! Hope this helps another bride.
