Call them and ask, some states only need a faxed copy or photocopy.  Some will want a copy with the state seal on it.

@SizzleC:  I would call them and ask. Some states will actually require you to give up your birth certificates and then have them mailed back to you.

You can also pay a ten dollar fee to have the license expedited. We got married in Wisconsin and I’m from Illinois and Darling Husband is from Australia. He flew in the Wednesday before our Saturday wedding but didn’t get in until after business hours. We went to the courthouse Thursday morning, got the license on the spot and got married by a judge a few minutes later (we chose to have a legal ceremony two days early for immigration reasons, mainly because we needed a copy of our marriage certificate before we left on our honeymoon that Sunday night). Our wedding on the Saturday was two days after our legal wedding although most guests didn’t know that. Anyway, irrelevant.

Bottom line, I called the Chippewa County courthouse a month ahead of time, explained the situation, and asked how we could work this. They were more than happy to accommodate us and like I said we got our license straightaway. I believe there are special criteria that allow you to waive the waiting period; i’m not sure exactly what they are but we fit the bill and your situation doesn’t sound too dissimilar. Good luck!

Glad you got it figured out and, uh, on Wisconsin! 🙂
