How To Fill Out a Marriage License

Ceremony Type on Marriage License

The marriage license may ask whether the wedding was Civil or Religious. Unless otherwise specified, you should mark "Religious".

Even if you perform a ceremony that is secular in nature, you will be doing so in your capacity as a minister, which is a "Religious" official. In general, a wedding is only registered as "Civil" when it has been performed by a judge or other officer of the court.
