1. Ask the Couple to Present the Marriage License

The couple should have already filed for their marriage license prior to the wedding date. You need to confirm that they have the marriage license with them on the wedding day.

You also need to make sure that they have done so within the appropriate time frame, so that the license is not expired, or still suspended by a waiting period. (Some states require couples to wait a few days between the issuance of the license and the wedding ceremony.)
