There is so much planning involved in a wedding that it is easy to overlook some of the key legal elements, like your marriage license. Your marriage license is the official document that authorizes your marriage in your particular state and county. Without it, well, you’re not legally married (yikes!).
How much is a marriage license, where do you get one, how many days prior to your wedding do you need to apply, do you both have to apply in person and is there a blood test?These are just a few of the questions that engaged couples need to research before applying for their marriage license.
