@kryssbride:  Check with the register of deeds office before you blame your officiant for not sending it… we had a problem with ours, too… but the county office had the problem, which we got straightened out. You’ll want certified copies of your marriage certificate anyway, so you’ll want to go to their office. 

ETA, they also honored our original wedding date at the registrar’s office, so they may do the same for you…

@kryssbride:  Wow, well. I guess the first thing to do would be to explain to the officiant what is going on. Maybe he doesn’t understand the severity and deadline of your crisis. Have you told the county recorders office that it was mailed just days after your ceremony? Perhaps it is a mailing issue, if that is the case, the post office would be my next stop.

If the officiant sent it by regular first class mail and it got lost, there’s not much anyone is going to be able to do about it.

What a pain, but at this point, I think I’d just do whatever I had to do to make the paperwork go through. I’m so sorry for all your frustrations, especially as a newlywed! 🙁

@kryssbride:  It should be the office where you picked up your marriage license. If not, google “vital records” and the name of your town. Generally, it’ll be at the court house. 

It’s frustrating, no doubt… I was furious when I found out there was a problem (especially because we moved cross country the week after we got married!), but it will all work out. The lady at the office assured me that I was married, it just wasn’t on record, yet and that it was no big deal.
