My partner and I are planning to travel to Boston to get married, but we do not plan on having a ceremony there. We only want to file the proper paperwork and do the bare minimum for this part of our marriage, this is because we are have a somewhat large reception when we return.
What should we know about getting married in MA?
Can we just go to the courthouse and file the paperwork?
I see there may be a 3 day waiting period that can possibly be waived, but I'm not sure how that works.
Also, can we do just the paperwork or do have to arrange a whole ceremony outside of the courthouse? city hall?
