Identification documents are required to wed!

It is easy to forget in the midst of wedding preparations that government issued identification documents are required to register the marriage and issue marriage certificate! Couples are required to bring IDs to their ceremony! All documents are checked for validity by officials to prevent the cases of marriage fraud, where some people attempt to wed using fake identities, (apparently these can be ordered online easily nowadays), which imply subsequent ill intent towards their future spouse or an attempt to conceal their less than perfect past. Using fake identity is a crime in any civil affair, including marriage. Such cases will be persecuted according to the law.

Sometimes it’s just so better said coming straight from the bride, so away we go into hearing it all from Houstin, Texas, resident Megan… (besides, we’re pretty sure we couldn’t get away with calling her suit “banging”!) THE MEET We both swiped right on Hinge! Justin was...

Leave it to a couple from Texas to make a big splash of a wedding here in Charleston. Not only did Alicia and Walker pick an iconic mansion, the William Aiken House, for their reception, but they also picked the planners at Pure Luxe Bride,...

“For months before the wedding,” says Mike, “Taryn would say, ‘Just wait! You won’t believe how amazing this day is going to be.’ ”And amazing it was. From the perfectly planned pink palette to the uplifting florals, vintage bus transpo (baby blue for that), and...
