Where we live you can apply for a license 90 days prior to the wedding.  We wanted to get that out of the way and did so at about 70 days to go.  That means – we have to register everything by 10/20… 

Well – our officiant messed up – he used a 2 digit year instead of a 4 digit year and wrote a 2 (for 2010) over the 10; he also kind of messed up when writing his title – and it got rejected!!! 

I had to have him sign another affidavit stating he married us and pay $30 to refile… just sent it in this week, but I have this awful feeling that since it wasn’t filed within the 90 day window we are SCREWED.

I’m with you on the legal part is the most difficult… or at least the most tricky!

EDIT:  My advice to future brides – FILL.OUT.ALL.BLANKS on the license except where people have to sign AHEAD OF TIME!!  I did that for our witnesses, and was planning to do it for the officiant – but he got to the license before I had a chance (I was planning to do it on the wedding day, since I had a question for him about one of the blanks) but I SHOULD have done it before then (when it was just sitting on my shelf!).
