As our big day draws near, there is one big important task that needs to be done and that’s getting our marriage license! This, above all, is probably the most important task to check off, since without it, you technically don’t have a marriage! Each state is different, so make sure to research your state with enough time before your wedding. Some states require a blood test, which, depending on your schedules could take some time to get done. As with anything wedding related, plan early!

I’ve found this fantastic interactive page from Wedding Wire. All you need to do is click on your state and all the requirements you need will pop up! Super easy! We have a friend officiating our ceremony, so I double and triple checked to make sure that we were all set to have him before getting him registered. Thankfully, Illinois looks at marriage as a contract between the couple and the state, so as soon as we sign that license, we are set and ready to go!
