poetic license

Every state is different, but every state is the same…..to get your license, you’ll need to arrive at the town health department (or vital statistics bureau, or town hall ) with your ID’s, your witness or witnesses, and a check. You’ll want to call them first to see what the waiting period is (in NJ, it’s three days, like buying a gun……in NY, it’s only one) and what documentation you’ll need to show them. Calling ahead or visit your state’s official website might save you a second trip, and really who has time to do anything twice when you’re planning a wedding?
