I have had some great questions on Ask Marcie and one of the most common questions is, "Who pays for what?" Who pays for the stamps? Who pays for the rehearsal dinner? Who pays for the bridesmaids dresses? I did some research and this is what I came up with, but remember-- every person and wedding is different and there are NO SET RULES. I suggest having open communication with your family, your fiance and his family. Be open to new ideas and thoughts, but most of all be sensitive to those involved and their individual situations.
Marriage licenses can be obtained at the county offices from the clerk/ auditor of that county.
You both need to be there. Information you will need to bring with you:
~ A form of I.D. (Drivers License, Military ID, birth certificate, or passport)
~ Full names including the maiden name of the female
~ Provide your social security numbers
~ Date and place of birth (town or city, county, state, country)
~ Permanent addresses
~ Complete names of parents and maiden names of your mother
~ Birthplace of father and mother (state or country)
~ If this is a 2nd, 3rd, etc marriage due to divorce, a date when the divorce was final must be provided on the application. If the divorce was less than 6 months prior, you must provide court documents proving the divorce is final.
~ If a previous marriage ended due to death, the date of a spouses death must be supplied.
The marriage license fee is $50.00. The license will be valid for 30 days and can be used anywhere in the state of Utah during that time by someone with the legal right to perform marriage.
**Requirements may vary by county and state**
