Second Weddings

License to Wed

We picked up our marriage license today.  The clerk asked us a lot of questions - I really don't remember being asked so much the first time I got married.  I didn't know where my father was born, so she wrote unknown - luckily it wasn't a deal-breaker question.  :)

The license is very decorative.  The clerk said there are only two counties in PA that still give out fancy marriage licenses - it's got kind of a pennsylvania dutch look to it.

I know it's a silly thing to be excited about, but it's not just one more diy project done - it's a big step that makes everything feel more real and exciting!  3 more weeks!

  • Congratulations!  I remember that day well, and yes it does make things just a bit more real. 
  • @clg1213 - Thanks!  We live in Berks County but our wedding will be in Montgomery County.

    @MikesAngie - I don't remember the questions and the printing out of the license from my first wedding.  I remember going to the courthouse in Chester county - maybe they did it differently there because I thought they just gave us paperwork to take with us and bring back...



  • Cool.  I don't know Berks at all (other than sometimes having to clarify Bucks/Berks when I talk fast or am talking with folks here in central PA) went to Haverford College and did a bit of MontCo political work during those years.

  • We got our license yesterday... the form in maine was different than when I got married in CT. I asked alot of silly questions to make sure I filled it out right but once I said that the forms different than CT, she understood.  She just had to look over my divorce Decree....  At first I was worried because she coudln't find the judge signature but I was like its from texas.... its different and thats the official copy! LOL 

    Wedding in 11 days!!!!!
