THE AMM WEDDING HELPER ACTION ITEMS
When you register your wedding you can take advantage of features that help prepare you for and confirm having performed marriage. These features include:
WEDDING PREPARATION ACTION ITEMS
A Personalized Ceremony Script
When you register your wedding you are provided with a personalized wedding ceremony script. You can use this script as-is or as the foundation for a more personalized ceremony for the wedding.
Government Registration Instructions
Some states will require you to register with a government office prior to performing marriage. When you register your wedding you will receive guidance on whether you are required to register and if so, what specific further steps you need to take.
Wedding Ceremony Quiz
Our wedding ceremony quiz is a great way to make sure you are up to speed on understanding the various aspects of the wedding ceremony and the nomenclature used to describe the ceremony parts.
State Marriage Laws Quiz
Our state marriage laws quiz is a great way to make sure you understand what the laws are in your state regarding who can perform marriage, who can get married, who issues the marriage license, and the detailsconcerning its completion and return.
* You can also opt-in to reminder emails to make sure that you have done everything required to prepare for the wedding.
WEDDING CONFIRMATION ACTION ITEMS
Upload Your Wedding Pictures
A picture is worth a thousand words and what better way to confirm that you conducted a wedding ceremony than with photographic evidence? The answer, there is no better way.
Confirm Marriage License Filing
In most states it is the duty of the couple to return the marriage license to its government issuance office. That being said, we encourage our ministers to confirm with us that the marriage license has been filed so that you have that record attached to your minister account.
We encourage you to leave a few kind words about performing the ceremony for the couple. This can be an expression of gratitude to the couple, a funny anecdote about the ceremony, or anything else wedding day related.
SHARE YOUR WEDDINGS ON THE AMM WEDDING WALL!
We encourage you to share weddings you have performed with your friends on social media. This lets others know that they too can perform marriage or have one of their friends officiate their wedding.
