Registering for the license

Posted by Rob on Thursday Jul 1, 2010

Everything is so formal with this wedding process. You can’t just, like… y’know, get married. You have to register with the county for a license. With both parties. And a witness. And a notary has to observe. And you need verification of your IDs. And you have to answer questions. …like, if you’re already married to each other. Or related.

wedding form completeThat “hey, by the way, are you related” question has come up a few times, freakishly enough. For the marriage license, for Pre-Cana, for all the priesty questions Fr. Martin asked us, for Seton Hall, etc. And, every time, I always ask if any one had ever gotten that far in the process and answered “yes”. Like, “oh wait… crap, we are related. That’s why this is gross. My bad – we’ll see ourselves out.”

But, whatever the case, July 1st was our official, scheduled (!) time to fill out the marriage license request. You had to formally schedule a meeting to formally request a license to formally get married. And thank God we actually set up an appointment to get this paperwork, because there were at least two other people in the entire office. And they both worked there.

So, Nikki (our witness), Lex and I sauntered on up. Got our paperwork from the government robot lady, and went through the shpeal. She eventually softened and became our friend, who can blame her, but it was a process to crack the ice. The paper work was easy enough; Name, Birthday, Address, etc. Show your license, take an oath, make sure Nik saw what we were doin – and we’re done! Just gotta go back in another few days (7/6) to pick up the official form. Then I make Alexis use my last name. The burden spreads!

On June 30th nik and i went up to the wonderful heart of gold to check out a band for rob, a band for me and jewels for nik.
-nik got a great bracelet, necklace and earrings!
Rob was super easy, picked out a simple band.
-i got a necklace fixed up(its my something old, and earrings adjusted for the day.
now choosing my wedding band…. that became a process. I plan on wearing the band on my right hand so i needed something really special. i narrowed it down to 2 bands with the help of everyone. Mr K let me take both home to debate over. I love them both but im pretty sure i have my mind made up! What a life, walking around with 2 wedding bands on!!!

Wedding Interviews
Less than two weeks to go now. Every day is filled with the minutia that is “wedding madness.” There are all kinds of documents and forms that need completing, arranging, scheduling, or any combo of the three. There are questionnaires to fill out for the photographer, the videographer needs paperwork signed off, the church needs us to finalize the marriage license, the state needs us to schedule a time to get the wedding license… everyone needs information from us, and quickly. it’s nutty. And there’s a lot of it. But with each passing accomplishment, there’s one more thing off the list.

And we’re one more minute closer to everything actually happening.
