Congratulations! You’ve made it through the stress of planning a wedding; the vows are said, and the party’s finally over.
You’re officially married, you want everyone to know, and there’s one simple way you can make this happen. No, it’s not heading to the Social Security office to change your last name, but if this is on your to-do list, make sure to make an appointment. You don’t want to spend the day waiting in long lines.
Instead, we’re talking about knowing how to fill out a marriage certificate. No, it’s not a legal requirement but it’s nice to have. Don’t worry, it’s only basic information and we’ll walk you through the simple steps.
Before you can start filling out a marriage certificate you need the document. Most of the time, whoever is marrying you brings a blank certificate. Heading to the justice of the peace, no worries.
You can pick up a certificate almost anywhere, including online, and you can find some great templates to fit any style, including some for free. From gothic to elaborate, contemporary, or elegant, there’s a perfect template to show off in your home.
So, what information do you include in a marriage certificate? You start with your names and go from there.
See? Filling out a marriage certificate is a breeze.
You don’t need to be the happy couple to download a free marriage certificate—you can give one as a thoughtful and inexpensive wedding gift. You’ll include the same information as if you were the bride or groom.
Find a great frame and you have the perfect wedding gift the bride and groom will cherish throughout their marriage.
