Meet me in the Bakery - to get married!
Here's what we're thinking, let's meet in the bakery, grab a seat and sign your marriage license and then celebrate with a sweet treat or even dinner or brunch! Getting married should not be hard and a simple signing is the way to make your wedding day a breeze!
What is a marriage license signing?
That's a great question! Let me clarify the details and make sure this is what suites your needs.
For the signing I do not perform a ceremony, we will meet, I will complete the marriage license, ask the two of you to sign and then ask your two witnesses to sign as well.
The only form of a ceremony is when I ask...and yes it is this simple, no more no less :-) "You have come today with the intention to marry, so I ask, do you promise to continue to love each other all of your days together, if so say "I do" you both respond with "I do" and then I say " I am happy to pronounce you are married"
You are welcome to bring whoever you like I just advise of letting them know that we are doing a simple signing so they are not surprised at the swiftness of it. If we're just popping in somewhere to do your marriage license signing I suggest just the two of you and two witnesses, but if you want to bring more along then a nice brunch or dinner reservation is great.
What is required to perform a marriage license signing?
In order to get legally married in the state of Michigan you must first apply for your marriage license. You will do this at your local county clerk's office. The county you live in is where you will apply, visit the county clerk's website for their specific instructions on how to apply for your marriage license. In most instances you will apply online and make an appointment to go pick up your marriage license. Some documentation may be required, such as your drivers license or picture ID, social security card and passport or birth certificate.
Once you apply for your marriage license and obtain it you have 30 days to get married - yes it expires!
Marriage license in hand, now you need to hire an Officiant, legally ordained minister to perform your ceremony and sign your marriage license.
Did you know most court houses no longer perform marriages or if they do it can be quite a wait!
