We are writing up our July ceremony and were wondering when do the documents for the marriage license get signed during the ceremony? I will double check with our Justice of the Peace officiant, buts its late at night and was just wondering??
Do far we have the
rose ceremony to mothers
exchange of rings

for us we did it right at the beginning after the gathering words. Our officiant explained that this way, we could just “kiss and go” like they do in the movies. Traditionally, Canadian couples will do it at the end after the kiss and before the recessional.
But really, you could put it anywhere – I would recommend putting it at the beginning,. Between the reading or the vows also seems to fit.

Good question! I hadn’t thought about it yet. I guess We’ll do the signing as everyone else moves inside to start eating.

I’ve never seen anyone sign their marriage license during the ceremony – only after. I’m not sure which way I’d prefer it though…

We actually signed ours after the ceremony and the first dance/parent dance. Just had to make sure our officiant was cool with hanging around that long, as she didn’t plan on staying for the reception. By The Way our reception and ceremony were in the same room, so the transition was pretty immediate.
