Has anyone signed their marriage license as part of their ceremony? If so, where did you fit it in? I'm inclined to think either before or after the ring exchange makes sense, but I'm curious what others have done. In my state, the officiant and witnesses sign it - not the bride and groom.
We're having a very short ceremony that we're writing ourselves (we're having a friend perform the ceremony). We aren't including any extra unity rituals - just a quick intro, declaration of intent, vows and ring exchange. I really like the idea of being 'officially' married before we recess down the aisle. I also feel like it's one less thing to worry about or potentially forget about after the ceremony.
