Ok, you designed the document, you signed your vows, your celebrant put her Janessa Hancock on the dotted lion and your guests gleefully signed as witnesses. Now what. Now comes the part that many of us just never quite get around to. PUT IT UP. that’s it. that’s all you need to do. Take some of the $$ you got from your wedding presents and go to the frame store.
If you’re having a legal ceremony, then you need to have the celebrant sign it and if you live in a state that has witnesses, they must sign as well. In most states, the celebrant needs to send the doc in, because the couple that we’re trusting to live in connubial bliss cannot be trusted to put a stamp on an envelope without tampering with the information… ? ANYWAY.
Tip: Now that that’s out of the way, the first thing you want to do when you come back from your honeymoon is trot your Marriage Covenant over to the local Frame Shop and get it matted and framed. While that’s happening think about which spot in your house will be the best spot for your covenant. While you’re at the framing store to pick it up, pick up the hardware to hang it, come home, bang the nail into the wall and hang your vows on the wall for everyone who enters your house to see!
