Alright ladies another question here. We are going to have FI dad marry us. He is not ordained nor is he a judge or anything like that. He does not want to get ordained online as he is very religious and doesnt think this is really "okay" in God's eyes. SO... for Colorado you can solemnize your own marriage Im assuming this means we can sign our own marriage license on the day we get married. Has anyone done this? Or has anyone had a family/friend marry you and how did you go about it? Our other option is to get married in WI (where we live) and then have the ceremony and reception however this is causing some controversy with family and friends saying that the wedding is then just one big expensive party because we are already married (even though it is JUST on paper)... IDK Im torn.... HELP!
