Courthouse weddings are quickly becoming a popular option for those exchanging nuptials. If you are still on the fence about going this route I will give you five great reasons to help you decide.
1. Love is your focal point
Carefree planning allows engaged couples to spend more time focusing on their love than planning for other people to see that they love each other. You won't forget why you decided to marry each other while trying to agree over seating arrangements and guests lists.
2. BRIEF ENGAGEMENT
You can marry as soon as the proposal is accepted! Well, in the same week... Speak with us and we can show you how to waive the 72 hour waiting period when applying for a marriage license. You can get hitched in 24 hours.
3. BENEFICIAL FOR THE BUDGET
The Knot's 2014 Real Weddings survey found that the average wedding spend in 2014 was $31,213. (NOT including the cost of the honeymoon). With the average wedding costs rising by $2000+ per year a courthouse wedding is quite a desirable preference.
$75: Marriage license. In most cities you must procure a license at least three days before the ceremony. But in New Orleans all you need is a driver’s license and social security number and $75 and you are ready to go in 24 hours with a waiver.
$50: Officiant Services. Getting married during business hours, can result in a very modest fee.
4. Available Wedding Dates
You can choose just about any day because you aren't bound to venue availability, choose at whim your desired date based on season, symbolism, or any other day you fancy. The world is your oyster. Yeah!
5. Uncomplicated wedding Plans
Hire us and we will help you. We can recommend free or small permit required ceremony locations if you choose to marry outside the courthouse. We can memorialize your occasion with a 2 hour wedding photography service and even be available as your two witnesses. This package does not include costs associated with permits or marriage license.
