It really does happen that folks wait until the last moment to book the Utah Wedding Officiant. Luckily, they’ve found someone (our firm has a number of officiants). The Day arrives. The Utah Wedding Officiant is there to review the marriage license and the groom shows up at the stated time. Everything is going great. The sun is shining. Blue birds are singing.
“May I see the marriage license“, the Officiant asks?
“The marriage license that gives me permission to marry you.” (usually said in a very concerned voice).
“We didn’t know we needed one.” (usually said in a panicked voice).
Suddenly, the sun hides behind a dark thunder cloud and a hawk eats the blue bird.
Yes, you must have a marriage license.
So, how does a professional Utah Wedding Officiant resolve this problem? Well, we certainly hope it is a weekday.
A Utah marriage license may be obtained from any county clerk. They are valid throughout the state of Utah. There is no waiting period. The marriage license may be immediately used.
Utah County allows the marriage license to be applied for issued electronically. The return of the marriage license may also be done electronically.
But really, Please Get Your License.
