Not interested in the fuss and stress involved in planning a wedding? Driving down to your local courthouse may be the venue for you. Check in with your courthouse and ask how long it takes to obtain marriage license. If you desire, invite your close family and friends to watch you tie the knot. A courthouse creates an intimate setting which saves you money for the honeymoon and your first year of marriage. Plus, attire is more relaxed, so if you aren’t the traditional wedding dress kind of gal, a shorter, cocktail dress is perfect for the occasion. Remember, a courthouse wedding doesn’t mean you have to do without the traditional wedding staples; bring along your bridesmaids, bouquet, and something old, new, and blue for your big day.
