Yes, you can just sign and go - getting legally married does not have to be anything you don't want it to be.
Let's talk about our simple signing package. At A Simple I Do, the team and I believe that your wedding day can look like anything you wish and sometimes that means you just want to sign your marriage license and go!
What is the requirement for getting legally married in Michigan, good question, let me start at the beginning.
First step - apply for and get your marriage license from your specific clerks' office, using the county that you live in, unless you live outside of Michigan then you will apply in the county that you are getting married in. License in hand you now have 30 days before it expires to sign it and make your marriage legal.
Second step to getting legally married is to hire a professional Officiant to meet with you. This person is responsible for signing your marriage license, directing all participants where to sign the marriage license and then performing a simple exchange of vows so you may declare you came of your own free will to marry each other.
Last step is for your officiant to file the marriage license with the county clerk and then for you to request for certified legal copy of the marriage license - you need this if you are changing your name, adding to insurance or any legal proceedings, this is the copy of the marriage license they want to see.
You see, getting legally married does not have to be anything you don't want it to be. You can simply sign and go.

How do you even begin the process of getting married in Michigan?
It's a question I hear time and time again, Nichole I don't even know where to begin!
Well let's start at the beginning of how to get married legally in the state of Michigan. Hi, I'm Nichole, owner of A Simple I Do Wedding Officiants and were a group of legally ordained wedding officiants/ministers who serve all couples in southeast Michigan. We concentrate on small intimate weddings - we'll meet you at a local cafe to sign your license and make it legal or at a park or venue - the key is keeping it simple, stress free and all about your love.
To get legally married in the state of Michigan, you need to follow these steps:
Apply for a marriage license: The first step to getting legally married in Michigan is to apply for a marriage license at a County Clerk's office. You and your partner must appear in person to complete the application, and you'll need to bring your government-issued photo identification (e.g., driver's license, passport, or state ID) and your social security numbers. The fee for a marriage license varies by county.
Wait for the waiting period: In Michigan, there is a three-day waiting period after you apply for a marriage license. This means that you cannot get married until at least three days after you apply for the license. However, some counties may waive the waiting period for an additional fee.
Have a ceremony: You and your partner must have a ceremony to get legally married. The ceremony can be performed by a judge, a magistrate, a county clerk, a mayor, or a member of the clergy. You'll need to have two witnesses present during the ceremony.
File the marriage license: After the ceremony, the person who performed the ceremony will sign your marriage license. You must then return the signed license to the County Clerk's office within 10 days of the ceremony.
Get a marriage certificate: After your signed marriage license has been received and processed by the County Clerk's office, you can obtain a certified copy of your marriage certificate. You'll need this certificate to change your name and for other legal purposes.
It's important to note that the above steps are for a standard civil marriage in Michigan. If you're planning a religious ceremony, you may need to meet additional requirements. Additionally, Michigan does not recognize common law marriage, so you must have a ceremony to be legally married.
