Florida Wedding Questions and Answers

July 9, 2014

We are experienced Tallahassee and Tampa Florida Notary wedding officiants. When we are contacted we are genuinely interested in knowing about you and your wedding.  Here are some our most commonly asked Florida Wedding Questions and Answers:

Where do I get my marriage license?

Any Clerk of Court in Florida.  You don’t need to get it in the same county as where your wedding is taking place.  Marriage License information can be located on Resources page of our website. 

Do we need witnesses?

No, witnesses are not required.  It is optional to have two witnesses, but it’s not necessary.

Do we sign the marriage license at the wedding?

No.  You will sign the license when you get your marriage license at County Clerk’s office. We will notarize your license and return it for you.  It typically takes the county 10-14 days before they send you a certified copy of your filed marriage license. If you need it sooner let us know, and we will give it back to you to return yourself (if you bring it back yourself to the County Clerk’s office where you got the marriage license they will give the certified copy right then).

What kind of ceremonies do you perform?

We really enjoy helping couples create a ceremony that is unique and special to them. We have performed sand ceremonies, poems, and simple ring and vow exchange. Let us know if you have any particulars that you want for your wedding. We will correspond with you in preparing ceremony just as you want it for your wedding day.

Do we need to meet you before the wedding?

It is not necessary for us to meet. Typically we can correspond through e-mail & telephone calls. We can Skype if your not local and want to see your officiate. If you do want to meet and are local to the area let us know and we’d be glad to meet you.

Do we need to have you come to the rehearsal?

It’s not necessary for officiate to attend rehearsal. If your wedding is at a venue with a coordinator ask the coordinator if they want the officiate present at rehearsal. If you don’t have a coordinator we can attend rehearsal and serve as your rehearsal director for you for an additional cost. We can send you a complimentary rehearsal guide to complete prior to rehearsal. If you find you are able to to perform the rehearsal yourself using the rehearsal guide you don’t need to hire us and can save you on the rehearsal cost.

We’d be glad to help you in any way we can. We are available to help with all of your Florida Wedding Questions and Answers. We hope to make your wedding ceremony experience fun and enjoyable. Please do not hesitate to contact us with other questions, concerns, or ideas!
