Planning a wedding is supposed to be a joyful, exciting time. However, the stress and complications involved can often leave New Jersey girls, and other brides-to-be, in a state of dread. Fortunately, for those planning upcoming weddings, New Jersey has a lot of options available and the planning resources are just a click away on several great websites.
One of the first sites any New Jersey bride-to-be will want to check out is the State of New Jersey's website detailing marriage laws at www.state.nj.us. For those planning up-coming weddings, New Jersey requires a marriage license be obtained. If the bride or groom lives in New Jersey, either can obtain a license by going to the municipal office in their town of residence. For those non-residents planning weddings, New Jersey requires the couple apply for a license in the town where the ceremony will take place. A NJ marriage license is good for up to 30 days after issuance, and the state recommends applying for one at least two weeks before the wedding.
Another great online resource for New Jersey weddings is njwedding.com. This site highlights all of the choices for weddings New Jersey has to offer.
