Eureka Springs Wedding Tip #10

Don’t forget the marriage license! 

This is easily achieved by clearly outlining your plan for securing it, presenting it to the minister just prior to the ceremony and returning it -before the deadline- to the county office that issued it.  Get firm answers -far in advance- to such questions regarding where do you purchase a license, what documents are required, the cost, the payment method (cash only?  exact amount required?), where is the courthouse, when is it open, how do we get the signed license registered after the ceremony, etc.  (BONUS TIP:  If your wedding event is on or around a holiday, call and find out -for sure- the courthouse’s hours and days of operations around that holiday.)
