Why Shouldn’t You Just Get Married at the Courthouse?
It is possible to start your marriage off without any extra financial burdens from a large wedding, but the courthouse is not your only option. Courthouse weddings are great in a time crunch, but don’t provide a picturesque background for the wedding couple’s first kiss. This environment may not be ideal to create a romantic mood for you and your wedding guests. Some wedding couples arrive at their appointment and find that the judge supposed to be marrying them is running late (Sheets, 2021). Avoid this by booking a 1–2-hour slot at a wedding venue nearby.
