We have great news for you: Colorado is a self-solemnizing state. This means you may select a loved one, a judge, religious representative, spiritual leader, and truly anyone you choose to marry you and sign the marriage license. You can even be your own officiant. Only a few states have this option, be sure to research this law if you are getting married somewhere other than Colorado. Here's more good news: You are allowed to get your marriage license in any Colorado county, it doesn't have to be your "home" county or where your ceremony will be held. Keep in mind the marriage must, by law, take place within 35 days of obtaining the marriage license. Check in with your county clerk for more details and fee information.
Look for a future blog on how to select an officiant and feel free to contact us for guidance in this area.
