If you are getting married in May or June, by your New Jersey Wedding Officiant (smooth, eh?), you should be thinking about getting your license. It’s not a big deal, really, but there are some things you need to bring.

1. Each other
2. A check
3. Photo Id
4. Proof of residence
5. A witness, over the age of 18 who knows you
6. Many towns are now requiring that you have a New Jersey Wedding Officiant (darn it, I am SO SMOOTH!!!) in place and they will want you to have that information as well.

This is all very painless, but you need to think ahead; in New Jersey, you can apply a month ahead, but at least three days before the ceremony ….In New York, there is a one day waiting period.

And, um, don’t forget to bring it to the wedding……..
