One Day Wedding Officiant License in NJ?

Does anyone know whether NJ allows people to apply for  a 1-day wedding officiant, uh, license?

I know NY does, but since we're getting married in Jersey it would be nice to be married by someone we know, legally, than some random dude.

    I'm a little late to responding...but no, NJ does not have a officiant for a day license. However, some counties do allow someone ordained through Universal Life Church to do a wedding. Its a free online ordination (they'll try to sell you books to know how to perform a wedding ceremony, you don't need to buy them) This is what I did so that my moms cousin could marry us (he married both of my aunts too since each got married in PA which does allow for an officiant for a day license). Its really quick and simple! (I was married in Mercer County, and filed with East Windsor Township)
