3 Steps to a Magnificent City Hall Wedding

A big to-do isn’t for everyone. Maybe it’s your second marriage, or maybe you’d just rather run down to the nearest Town Hall and then set out for a quiet picnic in the woods. Maybe you’d rather spend your budget on your honeymoon and get married in the nearest City Hall at your destination. Every couple has their own reasons and they are all awesome options.

Planning a City Hall wedding is relatively easy if you know what kind of experience you’re hoping to have. And most couples do. If you’re hoping for something a little quieter, you probably already know who’s on your invite list. Maybe it’s just the two of you. Whatever your experience, here are three steps to ensure a successful “I do”.

One: Book the Date in Advance

You will need to have a valid marriage license before you can get married. If you’re travelling to the States or overseas, it’s important to research if there are waiting periods, if you need a reservation, the operating hours, what the fees are, how many people can accompany you, what I.D. you need to have with you, and also if they allow same-sex weddings. Find out everything you need to know ahead of time so there are no surprises or disappointments.

Two: Book a Photographer & Figure out Flowers

Just because you’re going to City Hall doesn’t make you don’t want the whole thing documented. Bring a skilled Photographer with you to your destination, or do some research and find one in advance. And yes, you can still enjoy flower bouquets and/or boutonnières. Figure out what you want and then find a florist in the area to ensure they are super fresh.

Three: Find Something to Wear

If you see yourself in a Cinderella princess gown, go for it. A City Hall wedding means anything goes. From traditional gowns, tuxedos, pantsuits, short gowns, to Comic-Con Fanfare… City Hall let’s you be you.
