#647: did you know.

that even when the wedding's over, the to-do list is still alive and kickin.

we have registry gifts we have to return (dupes and the like) and we have yet to even begin writing our thank you cards. but at least we have the thank you cards.

i love gocco.




oh, and should i be worried about our marriage license? we mailed our stuff in at the end of may...and the check hasn't cleared and we haven't seen anything yet. does it usually take this long? don't know about these things, see.

As far as the marriage license goes, the clerk at our licensing office told us to expect it in the mail in 3-4 weeks after the wedding date. It all depends on the local office and how backlogged they are at any given time. I was married on May 23 and am still waiting.

I love how the flower on your thank you cards matches your purple paper flowers!

not sure about the laws in your state but we were married in virginia and our officant took the marriage license down to the court house right after (friday afternoon) and picked it up on monday. if you just go down to the office they might have it ready for you

Cute little cards. No clue on the marriage license thing.

considering how stupid things have been in the state of california as of late, i wouldn't be worried.

but super cute thank you cards! you're making me wish i went ahead and splurged on a gocco and then hoard tons of supplies. sigh. oh well. i'll live vicariously through you!

I'm not sure about the marriage license, but I do know those thank you cards are adorable!

We were married on November 3 just before prop 8, so we were on a serious time clock. Anyhow, it took over a month to hear anything, our check wasn't cleared, and we were really freaked out, but it was fine in the end. You can contact the Sec of State office via on-line form and they'll get back to you eventually to reassure you it's ok! http://www.sos.ca.gov/

Yes, it usually takes that long. Unfortunately :(

We got married March 14th in LA county, sent out marriage license in the mail the following week and got our marriage certificate May 19th or something.. so it takes a LONG TIME. We kept thinking they didn't get it and it got lost in the mail especially because they didn't clear the check until early May. Hope this helps.

these turned out so well! we got our license in the mail a few weeks later, it seemed so official.

The last time I performed a wedding, I was told it was going to take 8 weeks for the couple to get their marriage certificate, and it took exactly that. If you haven't gotten it by this time next month, I would start to worry.

So are you going to tell us what the grand total cost was? Inquiring minds want to know...

Kiana said...

Haven't started our thank-you cards either...it's been a month now. Yikes! (At least we have them, too lol)

Skeeta said...

I got mine in about 2 weeks but was told to give it 30 days. Can u check online? I checked mine online and they had us in the comp as married. Or just call ;o)

The marriage license thing really does take forever! Make sure who ever married you signed it and sent in their stuff, too!

we got married in LA at the end of March and got our cerificate at the end of May. It arrived safe and sound despite the fact that they spelled our names wrong on the envelope, got the street address wrong, and didn't seal the envelope (all was correct on the license though!). Thank goodness for the USPS!
